The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Scale.

Anyway, this starts off right after the first one, but it’s more… ponderous? I mean, the first one didn’t exactly zip, but I was on board from the start, and this one asks a lot of the viewer (to stay interested).

So evil! Sort of!

This fight/chase scene had me laughing out loud. It’s amazing!

Somebody called the Hobbit movies “Peter Jackson fan fiction”, and it’s accurate in more ways than one: There’s so much fan service here, what with the whirling Dwarf dervish, and Legolas getting to be even smugger while killing orcs. It’s perfect!

Bollocks.

This Hobbit episode too a strange turn.

This is the highest-tomatometered of the Hobbit movies, and that’s just… that’s just… that’s just typical, because it’s a lot worse than the first one.

Oh, yeah — the second episode ended on a cliffhanger.

Man, this was so much worse then the first movie. Basically nothing happened. But there were some fun fight scenes.
