At the Movies Episode 39: The Hobbit-The Desolation of Smaug

The Tolkiening of America continues this week as the Showcase guys take in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. In a (mostly) spoiler-free discussion, the guys talk about how the movie diverges from the book, how they feel about the additions to the original story, and their overall feelings about the film.

And what’s cool this week? Jason has been watching Gypsy Sisters, Kenny got a new toy from Japan, and Blake is doing his annual re-read of The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guinn.
