The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Post by S7 mrmiller on Sat Dec 14, 2013 2:55 pm

I made it out to see the new Hobbit this morning, and it is so much better than the first. I really liked it- even all the departures from the book work really well to keep the story flowing and interesting. (the "She-Elf is great). It also has some of the best action scenes put to film, and when you see the river scene you will know what I'm talking about. A great movie worth your 3 hours of time, but the ending is a bit of a downer with the next movie being a year away (think the Empire Strike Back, or even more recently Catching Fire).

Next movie is out this coming summer, so half a year!

I really liked it, went to a double feature and saw both. All the book departures fit in with the tolkien universe. I really liked the references to events from the silmarillion (Glaurung, dwarves and gil-galad, etc). I doubt hardly anyone else notices them, but they're referencing actual content tolkien wrote, which is probably why it goes along with the story so well.

Yeah I enjoyed the movie as well. My only complaint is the random use of water camera footage in the barrel river scene, not sure what they were thinking using that footage in small spurts.
