The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies DVD/Blu-ray review – RELEASE DATE MARCH 24

botfa dvd artIn the USA, from March 24th, the last in Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth movies will be available for you to take home. (It’s been available in digital version in many countries since March 3rd; but from Tuesday you can get your hands on a ‘hard’ copy.)
