LIKE my comic!

Xmas is over, but I’m gearing up for a fun 2014! I still need to watch most of the Oscar bait, but did have a chance to check out the second “Hobbit” movie. Not bad, overall. It felt a bit padded, but I enjoyed the “barrel-fu” sequence and most of the stuff involving Smauuuoooog.

As for Christmas movies, it’s hard to find one that doesn’t suffer from a bit of values dissonance, but if you can get past that, they can be pretty enjoyable.

Google Led You Here: “Smaug movie” Just one so far, Internet Searcher. It was pretty good.

 

What’s the Joke, Projectionist? Christmas movies often feature a main character who dislikes the holiday. The usual solution is to use magic to terrify them until they accept the joy of the season. I think that’s a bit odd.
