Red Letter Media offers their opinions on The Hobbit

I really enjoyed The Hobbit, even though I still think it might have been better as one movie instead of three. But this is a RLM review, so they’re going to crap all over whatever you thought of the film. While they’re not entirely correct in this review, it is fucking hilarious.

IHC Movie Reviews: The Hobbit (2012)

Here it is, boys and girls. Outside of Broadway fans and Tarantino aficionados, The Hobbit is pretty much the last greatly anticipated movie of the year. After years of back and forth over production, directors, and cast, it’s all finally come together and while it may be a while before we see the whole product, we at least get a decent chunk to whet our appetites. The question is, has all the eager anticipation paid off, or are we faced with perhaps the biggest disappointment in the history of movie adaptations?

Denny’s rolls out its Hobbit themed menu, pipe weed absent

Did you now The Hobbit is coming out this December? It’s not like they’re going out of their way to promote it or anything.
