DADDY: What did you think of the movie?
LILLY: I thought it had great special effects.
DADDY: I thought it was epic.
DADDY: Who was your favourite character?
LILLY: My favourite character would be the hobbit (Martin Freeman) because he didn't want to go but he was brave. He's an awesome actor too.
DADDY: I like him too but I liked Gandalf (Ian McKellen) as well.
DADDY: What was your favourite moment.
LILLY: My favourite moment is when Thorin (Richard Armitage) pretended to be angry with Bilbo but he was really proud of him.
DADDY: That's mine too and it brings a tear to my eye.
LILLY: How sad.
DADDY: Would you recommend it to your friends?
LILLY: No because it would be too scary for them.
DADDY: Maybe but would you like to see the second movie with me at Christmas?
LILLY: Of course baby.
DADDY: How many stars would you give it?
LILLY: Twenty because it had very good animation.
DADDY: Me too because it is wonderful. Mummy said I was a bit like Thorin because I am short, grumpy, proud and stubborn.
LILLY: Ha ha ha!
