This week on The Collision, we have a super-sized episode as we talk about The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies as well as the Sony hack and the resulting drama surrounding how they handled The Interview. With The Hobbit, we look over the trilogy’s conclusion, the trilogy overall, dashed expectations, what happened to Peter Jackson, what could have been, and more. As for the Sony hack, it should be noted that we discussed this last night, so we didn’t know about the latest development regarding the film’s release. However, we still touch on pertinent points regarding censorship and how Hollywood might handle future cyber attacks. As always, we finish up with our recommendations.
