The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies Soundtrack Now Available

  1. thanks

  2. I am just coming back from the theatre. ^^ This one is without a doubt the best of the three movies and it is the only one that fully satisfied my expectations. Emotion : good. Music (never as good as in lord of the rings but) good. Action : enough and not to much.
    A great part of the Desolation of Smaug problems are absent (but you should clearly do someting about legolas climbing on the bridge collapsing because everybody laughted in the room).
    This even make me forget how I was deceived by DoS (the long version was great at completing the missing part with Beorn and thrain, which completed the “too much proportion of action” in the movie but there were still terrible late in the music in Tauriel and kili scenes and there were terribly too much action scene with Smaug which were sometimes not important (as the well sequence and more globally all the forge sequences)).
    I would say I missed a bit Thorin funeral but this seems to be already planned for the long version so it is ok. ^^
    So my advice : if you actually want to do the Similarion, don’t do what you did in DoS : too much action and forgetting the human history (the action sequence could have been replaced with simple discussion between bilbo and the dwarves to know more about them). But try to be more close to what you do in the last movie and Lotr. Techniques are great things but the characters developpement is also important, all is a question of equilibrium.
    Thank you very much for all the time you spend on this aventure I am awared of the problem you probably encountered during all this time and that could have create the problem I observed. Hope you will be more free next time to do what you want (but don’t decide at the last moment to divide 2 movies in 3, it generates problems. Three movies since the beginning would have been better ^^). Thank you again.

  3. Seen the movie twice, so far!
    I think that “The Last Goodbye” (Billy!!!) is a huge improvement from “I See Fire” and a great song to end The Hobbit trilogy.
    But I fiercely hope it is not the last goodbye!
    One of my favorite scenes is the one in Dol Guldur with Gandalf, Galadriel, Elrond and Saruman. It’s so Silmarilionesque (Galadriel’s so cool)…
    So, as I’ve said, I fiercely hope! And I’m typing these words with the Ring of Barahir on my index finger!
    A huge, immeasurable THANK YOU to all who made this precious soul-food-and-remedy!
    And a word to Peter and the team (I hope somebody actually reads this):
    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can’t even begin to say how much all the things you’ve done mean to me and how much they shaped me. But I want more!
    We are Men afterall and that’s not too bad, is it?

    Best wishes from Serbia!

  4. I loved the movie!!! The only thing i didn’t like and i even hated it was the totally unecessary spend of our time on that dude Alfrid… You should just kill him in Laketown with his master….

    More things should have been included in the theatrical version though and not have to wait another year to watch the extended version so as to see the end of the battle and the funeral or the coronation of dain…. I just hope these scenes are in the extended cut!

    I loved the movie despite all these other things i would like it to have. I am going to wait now and watch these 6 movies once a year until PJ manages to buy the rights for Silmarillion. ^^

    Silmarillion PJ! Please! Give Christopher Tolkien all the money he wants we will give them back to you! 😀 ^^

  5. Literally the most sad movie I have ever seen. I haven’t been able to cry at all since which is weird and awful because im trying to and I can’t and it’s just an awful achy feeling.

    • But I think it’s fin just the way it is.

      Hey, don’t worry about it, everything will be allright. Everything will be fine, I promise. By a way, I’m Jennifer. I live in Ajo, Arizona. I think “The Hobbit 3” makes me sad. I got emotional. I really love that movie. I have a twin brother. I think it is awesome. I will try “The Hobbit 3” on my ipod soon. I’ll try it very soon.

  6. it was awesome… plss new series for beginning of sauron’s story

  7. THIS THIRD HOBBIT MOVIE BLEW MY MIND!!!! THE BEST BY FAR!!!! I could not be more perfect. (Well yes it can because of the extended version 😀 ) It was the best and I seriously can’t wait five or so more months before I get it on DVD, I needs to see it again!!! I don’t care what theatre we go to!!! I. JUST. WANT. TO. SEE. IT. And that’s that. Peter–don’t listen to the haters…I LOOOOOVE your movie and I love all that you and the crew and cast put so much into this!!! LOOVVE ITT!!! So much…can’t wait to see it again!!! 😀

  8. December 13 was a solemn yet strange day, that perpetuated with mixed feelings throughout. Goodbye middle earth is what I said to myself. After almost 15 years, a part of me ceased to exist to rest in immortality.

    From the time when we first watched LOTR 1 in a neighboring uncle’s VCR – I remember our dropped jaws when the film ended with Frodo and Sam looking into Mordor territory. We all exclaimed in Hindi “YEH KYA HUA” (What the…) Of course, those were not the days of frequent sequels for us – to the long wait for LOTR 2 (reading all the books in-between) to this epic moment…

    THANK YOU Peter Jackson and Team (The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) from the bottom of my heart.

    Can’t quite explain how I felt when the realization of the conclusion of this saga dawned on me. I was somewhat heavyhearted to leave the theater; joyous at the same time. Alas! I was in India, not in New Zealand or some beautiful Hobbiton country where I could have been with the like-minded lovers of middle earth and understood my feelings better.

    So, thought to write you this message/tribute to acknowledge everything you did for me/us.


  10. I love Lord of the rings and Hobbit. Will any more coming out from the series?? Plz Plz Plz. do it.

  11. * This about the soundtrack *

    Waht have we done to deserve this ?
    Sure the music is a good as from the previuous movies….
    But where are the beautiful faux leather/books for the “Special Edition”
    We got it for the first Hobbit, then for “Smaug” & “5 armies”, it’s became a cheap cardbord. If it wasn’t for the love I have for your Middle Earth masterpiece, I would have go for the regular edition…

    Does WB music edition have been take over by cheap gobblins ? Or is it a move to lure us toward more profitable digitla download ? A sad move anyway…

    Hi, everybody,
    I’m new here. I watched “The Hobbit Trilogy” sometimes. I’ll try to listen a “The Hobbit 3” for my ipod soon. I’m still working on it. By a way, I’m Jennifer. I live in Ajo, Arizona. I have a twin brother in Utah. You know, “The Lord of the Rings 3” and “The Hobbit 3” make me sad. I didn’t say goodbye to a Middle Earth. It’s awesome. I’m sure everything’ll be ok.
