The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies Film Review Peter Jackson’s overly-stretched, overly CGIed, obvious cash grab bad fanfiction is done. No more movies from the Tolkienverse for him (the Tolkien estate didn’t sell the rights to a Silmarillion) unless he actually decides to reboot the LotR films or decides to pull a George Lucas and re-cut them countless timesThe Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies Film Review11 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
But before we celebrate that, we still have to get through The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies, in which Peter Jackson eviscerate and completely pisses on Tolkien’s works. All right, let’s do this.
Just like with the
Desecration of TolkienDesolation of Smaug, this movie sucked Smaug’s dragon balls.
No, not these dragon balls, although if I had all seven, I’d wish that we got a decent adaptation, where they actually followed the book.Out of the Hobbit trilogy, BoFA is the worst one. I didn't think anything could be worse than DoS, but I was wrong. BoFA had the worst elements from Dos, and it's all cranked up to eleven. T

then tied our fingers against thunderstruck trees
while prudent street dogs spat selfish lyrics
and served lightly-salted soliloquies.
I cried starshine into your emerald arms,
so you could become the meaningful whisper I'll never hear.
I fell for faithless, plastic charms
in rooms that smelled like smoke, white oak and beer.
Our hearts became rocket ships tied to ribbons,
one crawling on an overstuffed belly; always too far behind
like the sons and daughters of Elias Fitzgibbons
who said we would wed us on Tuesday, that holy bind.
Wicked felt-tipped pens, forging "I love yous."
were like deadswept petals of blueish hues.

We can generate SPARKS and make a world of YELLOW, though we may get into
TROUBLE. No need to worry, we will have PARACHUTES so we will not fall at HIGH SPEED.
Though the years pass every so often, WE NEVER CHANGE. So just remember that EVERYTHING IS
Maybe your a POLITIK, and if you are you'll put me IN MY PLACE, But just
remember that GOD PUT A SMILE UPON YOUR FACE. Though i may not be THE SCIENTIST
that solves the equations of life, i know that as CLOCKS tick and tock, and DAYLIGHT
every day, i will never forget those GREEN EYES. I see many WARNING SIGN's in my days
and all i wish for is A WHISPER from you, A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD that says we'll be
together, maybe in AMSTERDAM.
So maybe we go back to SQUARE ONE with WHITE SHADOWS.
I know i would still try to FIX YOU, then we could TALK and X & Y would make
sense then we could fly at the S

The chime pierced the silence of the flag officer's quarters aboard the Alliance battleship Kilimanjaro, and Vice Admiral Harriet Spencer's azul eyes opened begrudgingly before the chime called again. Sighing, the five foot nine woman rolled to her side and glanced up at the communication panel at her bedside, tapping the glowing accept key and designating voice only. After all, it wasn't right for an admiral to talk to her subordinates while half naked.
"Spencer, go ahead." She said and noted the grogginess of her own voice as she checked the time. Zero two hundred. No wonder she felt like she had just fallen off a sunderhorse.
"Admiral, I don't mean to wake you but we have a situation." Spencer quirked an eyebrow at the voice on the other end. It was Captain Kuritz, Kilimanjaro's CO who, like Spencer,

Once the door closed behind me, I was on my own. Looking around, I saw students talking and heading to their classes. I looked down at my schedule and read it. Let's see AP Music Theory, Choir/Contable, Mythological Creatures Extravaganza, Witchcraft and Dark Arts, Martial Arts, Physics, Hero 101 and lastly, Metals and Jewelry Crafting. I had to read over the list a second time, and then again a third time.
"Martial Arts, Hero 101 and Metals and Jewelry Crafting?" I thought aloud. "Why the hell am I in those classes? Metals I can understand, but Martial Arts and Hero 101? And what the hell is Mythological Creatures Extravaganza? I think I'm old enough to know about all types of Mythological Creatures "
I huffed out a sigh as I pulled my bag onto my shoulder once again, trudging off to my first hour class. AP Music Theory seemed like a good class to start the day off with. I smiled a little at the thought of that, pulling up my scarf so the o

So it was Link's jobsince he had his old knight sword againto go gather a few logs for the fire.
Link was walking back to the cabin with five or six logs underneath his arm when he stopped, ears pricked up when the wind shifted.
The wind has changed .he thought as he slowly glanced around, searching for whatever it was that had made the wind alter.
There was a sound behind Link, like a gasp of some sort, and the blonde instantly whirled around, dropping the logs he held and drawing his sword only to pause at what he saw.
Ghirahim was lying on his side a few feet away, his left arm wrapped around his chest like it hurt and his clothes and hair dirty.
Link narrowed his eyes, pointing his sword at the Demon Lord.

"Why do you want to live here?" He leaned against the door and gave an airy sigh.
"It's your fault I fell in love with you, so I should be able to live with you now." The teen carried his bags in and set them in the hall.
He rolled his eyes and breathed out heavily. "Why is it my fault eh? I didn't do much... And besides, you know I like women." He picked up his bags reluctantly and carried them to his spare room, setting them down in the middle of the floor. "How long do you plan on staying? A few days?"

I sit alone on the island in Lake Hylia in the dead of night. Nothing is going on right now; I'm just waiting for the Hero of Time to return from the Sacred Realm. Pretty boring, yes, but what other choice did I have? I play my harp idly, strumming the Requiem of Spirit; D, F, D, A, F, D.
Footsteps sound behind me. I whirl to face the newcomer, my short katana grasped firmly in my right hand. In the darkness of the night I see a silhouette; pointed ears, long hat, tunic, sword, and shield. "You ?!" I gasp. How did I miss his return?
The person chuckles and I freeze. I hadn't heard Link's voice since he was young; but even so, I knew that wasn't his voice. "You think I'm the hero? How amusing."

The early morning sunlight showed through the window as a raven-haired child sleepily rose from his sleep and yawned. He looked over at the other boy on the bed next to him, who was still sound asleep. They could have been brothers, seeing how they shared similar features.
The boy looked at the calender next to his bed and sighed. It was that day again, the day of his birth. Now that he was twelve years old, he didn't feel any difference. He felt the same as he did eight or nine hours ago, when he was still eleven. Since it was Halloween, he could easily guess what was going to happen; Watari would insist on throwing him a party, he would refuse, then the other kids at the orphanage would find out that it was his birthday and throw him a "suprise" birthday/Halloween party.

Astra’s ears flicked as she began to come back from the darkness. Soon after her eyes began to flutter, and sound became more clear. She inhaled deeply; consciously, and it was the most air she had gotten in the past several hours. Her lungs inflated with the breath, though there was a dull ache in her stomach that caught most of her attention. For a moment the pain was all she focused on until, with a grimace, her ears became distracted by a soft feminine voice.
“Astra? Are you okay?”
There were more voices now, faint and murky, but as Astra became more alert the voices became more clear.
Ahead of her the voices were the lowest. Clearly two men were talking. To her right she could hear someone voicing a variety of profane complaints while another voice chastised, and yet another voice snapped that the aforementioned speaker best watch their mouth. To her left Astra could pick up on soft footsteps rather than a voice, and her attention was then diverted to the fact th

This is the first time Shion has ever seen the sea.
After a two hours walk through a meadow of green wheat and some light hiking, they have finally reached their destination. Nezumi stands next to Shion with a backpack on his back, a hand in his beige short’s pocket, the other holding onto Shion’s so he wouldn’t fall flat on his face with his all consuming daze. There is a mild, salty breeze licking the knee high grass on the hill they are standing.
