Steph and I went to Shiok with Amanath, Rish, Tommy, Sara, and Max.  Max just did dinner, and the rest of us went to see the last Hobbit movie.  It was terrible.  The movie had so many boss fights that it was more or less one boss fight after the other, and each one was absurd in how it played out.  The eagles coming at the end, while actually part of the book, really made it seem that much more absurd.  The one guy I wanted to see fight, beorn, didn’t really get anything more than a quick scene.  We were amused by the mounts that showed up in the last battle; the elk, pig, and rams.  The rams were especially amusing since they came out of nowhere.
