grandma's movie review - The Hobbit; the Battle of the Five Armies - Digital Download Give-Away!

My family has loved Tolkien's stories of Middle Earth . . . we loved The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and have been greatly enjoying the Hobbit Trilogy as well. We have the blu-rays for the entire Lord of the Rings and have been looking forward to the release of the final installment of the Hobbit, so when we learned the digital release of The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies was available almost a month before the blu-ray released, we were happy to get the digital download!

This morning as I checked my email I found an invitation to participate in a give-away of one digital down-load of The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies - since I loved watching it myself, I am very happy to participate and have one of you win this epic and excellent movie! More about the give-away in a moment, but first some information about the movie!

Warner Brothers says; "From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies' the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world."

I completely enjoyed The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies! Excitement, drama and a story very well told all combine for a movie which will not disappoint, but the thing I liked the most was how the character of Bilbo showed compassion, forgiveness and loyalty. He took risks to himself to protect others, put protecting others over his own "enrichment" and shows us all - and our older grandchildren - what it means to be a true and good friend!

I'm very happy to invite you to have a bit of fun with The Hobbit The Battle of The Five Armies App - you'll find it at the top right of grandma's cookie jar just under the space to vote for your favorite cookie recipe (which, if you have not yet voted, please do so!) With this App you can do the following . . . 
  • Are you Battle Ready? Take the quiz to uncover your Middle-Earth Weapon of choice! (I ended up with Tauriel's bow and arrow!)
  • Mouse over the Interactive Map to learn fun facts about Middle-Earth. 
  • Watch the official trailer & click the box art to bring the film home today!
Now - for the information about the give-away of the HD Digital download of The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies . . . I'm very happy to say Warner Brothers is making it available for me to give away - USA only. If you are over the age of 18 and would like to be in the drawing for the HD Digital download of The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, which will be on April 1, 2015 (no April Fools!), please comment below to let me know what your Middle-Earth weapon of choice is - take the quiz on the App which you'll find at the top right side of grandma's cookie jar. Comment below to let me know and you'll receive one entry in the drawing! You'll receive a bonus entry if you Tweet using the #TheHobbit hashtag and @grandmascookiejar (please comment to let me know if you did this!)

In addition, you will receive additional entries if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share).

This give-away was made possible by Warner brothers - I was not paid to host it or given anything to do so - I was invited to participate and thought you'd all enjoy it! Each household is only eligible to win One (1) Digital Download Coupon for The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies via blog reviews and giveaways.
