I was Reflecting on The Hobbit movies lately. I'm not getting into any discussion about their general merit. But the scene in The Battle of Five Armies where the White Council shows up in Dol Guldur, Saruman inquires, "My lady, do need assistance?", and the Council proceeds to Lay The Smack Down (TM) made me want to stand up and cheer.
Yes Saruman falls. But Christopher Lee got one last Big Damn Heroes moment.
