One particularly dedicated J.R.R. Tolkien fan took Peter Jackson’s bloated Hobbit trilogy into his own hands last week and edited it down into a much more manageable four hour long film. By cutting out several of the things that Jackson added in order to make the series span three films instead of two, the editor (who simply [...]
For the first time in a month, the top film of the weekend was not The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. No, this time the box office was dominated by another film in a trilogy that probably shouldn’t exist as such, Taken 3. Liam Neeson’s triumphant return to finding people that are not where they should [...]
For the third week in a row, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies took top honors at the weekend box office, netting $21.9 million.

Peter Jackson’s final entry in the Middle Earth saga brought in $56.2 million amid mixed reviews (including ours) and teary-eyed fans coming to terms with the end of the long-running film series. Following that [...]
