FILM REVIEW: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

(New Line Cinema, 2014)

Finally… After three long and tidious years, the trilogy of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) comes to a close with excitement, adventure, and successful completeness. I, as many, have been a Tolkien fan for most of my life. I can clearly remember as a middle schooler longing for the chance to see the Lord of the rings on the big screen.

by Kenneth Kimbrough

PART I – The Tale of Zatoichi

It’s time for me to talk about something very near and dear to my heart—movies. More specifically, Japanese movies. And even more specifically, Japanese swordfighting movies.

Since the front page has been loaded with comics reviews lately (Which is excellent! Keep up the hard work, everyone.), I thought it might be time for me to launch a new series following the exploits of the one, the only, Zatoichi—a blind swordsman just as much expert fighter as he is cunning trickster.
