This weekend two trilogies have their final chapters hitting cinemas. One is a fun adventure with a well-known cast of characters, some shorter than others, but all fighting together against supernatural elements. The other is about a hobbit.

These larger than life films can sometimes become tiresome or tedious as the summer movie season expands by a couple of weeks each year and audiences may need a break from time to time without sacrificing the theater experience. This weekend “The Hundred-Foot Journey” attempts to remedy this with a much smaller and more intimate story than many of the other offerings currently in theaters.
