“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” was Peter Jackson’s final farewell to the world of Middle Earth. And if the movie is anything to go by, Jackson is a bigger believer in the long goodbye. Because, man, this is a long movie. This honest trailer breaks it down:

Mopey dwarves whose names we still can’t remember even after this eight hour long trilogy! Awkwardly inserted references to the Lord of the Rings!
The most tortured adaptation of a children’s book we’ve ever seen finally comes to a close.
