There's a lot to like in the latest video from How It Should Have Ended, which tackles The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. But the best bit is at the very start, since it re-raises a question that's been lingering for a while now. Why doesn't Gandalf call in the eagles all the time?

I mean, I know that the actual answer is "Because then we wouldn't have a movie, dude," but still. I appreciated the other jokes in this video as well, probably because I just rewatched How to Train Your Dragon, which has got to be my favorite movie about cat-ownership.
