The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies was seemingly our last foray into the wonderful world of Middle Earth. I am of the generation that grew up with Lord of the Rings, having watched it in high school. I saw how the Lord of the Rings brought the fantasy genre into the mainstream and how suddenly Tolkien was cool among my classmates. I read the books long before I watched the movies, but the movies were an essential part of my youth. So my last journey into Middle Earth was somewhat bittersweet. There are no further plans, so as I watched the final installment of the Hobbit, I couldn’t help but feeling like an era of my life was coming to a close. But that is merely my sense of nostalgia, I could always pop in the DVDs for another venture into the fantasy world of Tolkien.
