Stunt Granny Audio Movie Review: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

the-hobbit-the-desolation-of-smaug-banner-2Jeremy and Kevin have slacked off after a strong start to the year for movie reviews. Lucky for everyone out there that enjoyed those five episodes that they’re back to talk about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. If one recalls, Kevin is the book expert and Jeremy is the movie expert. This review falls along those lines as Jeremy extols how great the movie was while Kevin is driven nuts by the second movie from Peter Jackson again. What did Jackson and company change from the book that drove Kevin to the brink? Can he distinguish from the good that they added and the bad that they added? Which change in particular really irked him? Can Jeremy even tell the difference despite having not read the book for a long time ago? The dwarves definitely got personalities this movie after being devoid of them in the first movie but can this duo recall their correct names? Did they forget a key part to help flesh out Thorin Oakenshield though? One also gets to meet the history of the dwarves and elves in this movie. Who is Legolas’s father? Which one of the dwarves fathered Gimli from Lord of the Rings? Which of the dwarves are related? How much Gandalf do you see in the movie? Are his scenes in the book? The reveal of Smaug was outstanding but was it the best part of the movie? How many times can Kevin say Smaug just because Jeremy is annoyed by the pronunciation of it? Is there any way that Bilbo Baggins could find the Arkenstone in the vast chamber of gold that Smaug protected? What did Jeremy say when the movie ended? Find out when you click on the spoiler ridden spoiler below!

mullet 001Jeremy & Kevin are your hosts this week. Though they are using better recording technology than a telephone, it is not working all that well to start. Bad connections get them to talk about bad referees. Jeremy veers the conversation into high school photographs. Are the pictures really air brushed now? What hairdo did Jeremy sport?  Kevin would have looked perfect in an Iroc -Z with his hair style. They finally get around to talking about wrestling and start with the imminent departure of AJ Styles from TNA. Why did TNA let him carry the title around the world if they weren’t going to re-sign him? Does the company owe him anything? Does he owe the company anything? Which one of the guys thinks that the WWE machine could turn Styles into something better? Jeremy & Kevin move along to talking about the build to TLC. The final segment sold the Randy Orton vs John Cena match, but did it throw off the story lines for CM Punk and Daniel Bryan? How much speculation came from Punk attacking HHH and Bryan kneeing Shawn Michaels? As for Punk’s opponents, who does Seth Rollins get compared to since he is the least hyped member of the trio? Who can Jeremy see imitating Nick Bockwinkel and Ric Flair in the character department? Can Jeremy remember anyone’s correct name from the Wyatt Family? Him and Kevin end the show giving their prediction for the main event of TLC. Find out who they picked when you click the link below.

Gandalf Costume

Jeremy and Kevin are here to talk about “The Hobbit”. They didn’t just go to the regular theater though. They’re both big dorks so they viewed it in forty eight frames per second. Jeremy is the movie buff kind of dork. Kevin is the he’s read all of J.R.R. Tolkien’s books that have to do with the Lord of the Rings dork. Did anything before the movie start the problems? Are their views on the movie the same? Do they agree that the movie was too long? Did Kevin try to explain away the length with his book wormery? What did they think of the clarity of the forty eight frames per second? Does Peter Jackson use 3D as well as James Cameron? Kevin did have to explain the difference between orcs, goblins and trolls. But did all of them appear in the book? Was Jeremy able to keep track of the dwarves? Did that end up hurting the movie when the heroes were in peril? Was there too much peril? What real spoiler did Kevin give away for the second Hobbit movie? Find out on this audio journey to Middle Earth.
