The 144-minute-long Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies manages to be a slightly more tolerable viewing experience than the mind-numbingly lengthy previous installments. The last hurrah of this over-stretched mess of a trilogy is another CGI-filled blockbuster that can’t help but squeeze loyal fans out of their last dimes. While somewhat entertaining at times, the film is doomed from the start.

Senna and many other Formula One drivers retain a near-mythical image of defying death while clocking blistering sector times, in fuel-rigged vehicles occasionally referred to as “bombs on wheels”... Filmmakers have been recently addressing the bipolar nature of F1, in which safety concerns are seemingly contrasted by drivers’ and constructors’ determinations to build the fastest car possible.
