On Saturday, January 3, 2015, Matt went to the theaters to see “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” Unfortunately, knowing that he and Ben would be podcasting about this movie the following week, and pressed for time to find someone to go with, Matt had to go alone. Because of this, he decided to text Ben throughout the movie to let him know his thoughts on the film. The following is the complete and unedited, spoiler-filled conversation between these two podcasters about the final installment of the Hobbit trilogy. This post is a supplement to the conversation in Episode 319: The Hobbit: There and Crap Again.

OK Matt, I think you need to grow a bit of scruff on the chin. You look too young! You look younger than I and I’m only 28.
