No, thank you! We don't want any more visitors, well-wishers, or distant relations!
What about very old friends?

The film's opening title is divided into two parts: "The Hobbit" appears at the beginning of the film, and after Smaug's death "The Battle of the Five Armies" appears. See more »
If you haven't read The Hobbit and/or if you like the first two movies: I envy you of sorts...
If someone had told me some years ago that I would consider walking out from a Tolkien movie opening night, I would have slapped them with a cod. Or a salmon. The Hobbit trilogy is crap.
It's little more than a long list of invented battles and love stories to attract a widest possible audience, as well as loads of idiotic storyline to make the story slide into the Lord of the Rings movies as smooth as an Elven ass.
I understand that some adaption is required from book to screen, but when dealing with a book more or less only surpassed by the Bible and the IKEA catalogue, one should tread carefully.
Do yourself a favor. Read the book. Let your mind be the big screen.
