After soaking in the news about Sony’s plans not to release “The Interview” due to threats by terrorists, we show a rare display of unity as we take turns angrily expressing our disappointment in Peter Jackson’s new movie “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”. Along the way we discuss everything we love about J.R.R. Tolkien’s literature and why Jackson’s original “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy was such a dramatically superior moviegoing experience.
