Watched it with my nephews and niece Can't Post

So I watched The Hobbit with a couple of my nephews and my niece the other day and it was a lot of fun!

They were in awe of Erebor and when Smaug attacked it they got a little mad cause they wouldn't show Smaug,

They loved the unexpected party especially the line about the bathroom they sing the two dwarf songs all the time now that's kinda cool actually cause they'll just stand around the living room singing misty mountains, they try to clean up like the dwarves in the movie but I always have to remind them that it doesn't work like that in our world

my nephews loved the battle of moria that's when Thorin became their favorite person ever cause he was going against a giant orc with nothing but an oak branch, they'll be outside pretending they're dwarves now I even taught them the dwarf battle cry "Baruk-Khazad Khazad ai menu" they want his Oakenshield I wish WETA or someone would make a replica of it

they thought Radagast was odd but cool my nice loved how he cared so much for the hedgehog

they loved the troll scene just absolutely loved it the bit with parasites had them rolling lol and also when the troll thought he sneezed out Bilbo so now everytime they sneeze they'll say "BLIMEY LOOK WHAT'S COME OUT OF ME HOOTER"

they didn't really have much to say about Rivendell though they did understand what the white council was talking about they loved Bombur breaking the table and the moon letters

they loved the stone giants they had no clue what to expect all I said was the scene was "epic" they loved the action sequences inside Goblin Town and like me my nephews made jokes about the Goblin king's chin lol.

My niece has always been scared of Gollum so when the Riddles in the Dark scene came on I let her hold my Sting sword Replica so she wouldn't be scared cause she knew Gollum didn't like that sword and cause Bilbo was holding it too. they picked up on the sutbleties in the riddles scene like Bilbo and Smeagol whispering to each other so Gollum wouldn't hear them. they were unnerved that Gollum looked too real.

they REALLY hate Azog they wanted the eagles to throw him off the cliff at the end

they were fussing at Thorin for yelling at Bilbo after Bilbo risked his life to save him but when Thorin hugged him he thought Thorin was cool again My niece said the last scene with Smaug was Epic lol

sorry the post was so long but I thought I'd share this with you all lol cause I had a lot of fun watching it with them it was nice to see it from a kid's point of view after hearing all the critics and other people who may have been dissipointed with the movie
