After successfully crossing over (and under) the Misty Mountains, Thorin and Company must seek aid from a powerful stranger before taking on the dangers of Mirkwood Forest--without their Wizard. If they reach the human settlement of Lake-town it will be time for the hobbit Bilbo Baggins to fulfill his contract with the dwarves. The party must complete the journey to Lonely Mountain and burglar Baggins must seek out the Secret Door that will give them access to the hoard of the dragon Smaug. And, where has Gandalf got off to? And what is his secret business to the south?Written by
There is a fan theory that the Arkenstone is actually one of the lost Silmarils, from J.R.R. Tolkiens "The Silmarilion". Changes in the visual design of the Arkenstone from how it is described in the book seem to indicate Peter Jackson (or one of his design team) subscribe to that theory. Since they do not have movie rights to that book, explicit references to its story and characters do not feature in the movies. See more »
Some dwarves, like Bofur, share one or two of Beorn's ponies with another dwarf. When they gallop to Mirkwood, each dwarf has a pony. See more »
You cannot be her. She is far away. She... she is far, far away from me. She walks in starlight in another world. It was just a dream. Do you think she could have loved me?

The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug: Alike the first, impressive but not ground breaking
The Lord Of The Rings trilogy blew me away, they were truly outstanding masterpieces that deserved every bit of recognition they got.
The Hobbit I delayed due to a laundry list of concerns, all of which are being confirmed now I'm finally getting around to them.
They look beautiful, they are a lot of fun, but compared to LOTR they are alike Mythica movies.
The whole franchise has become a cash grab, the Hobbit should have been one single movie and without all the excessive alterations. Yes I know LOTR had changes, but not to this devastating extent.
Desolation Of Smaug certainly has it's moments, I especially enjoyed the spiders and the not so jolly romp through the cursed forest. Thankfully the film isn't as goofy as the first either which was a welcome relief.
Alas it's no better, it still feels lackluster. This is The Hobbit, one of the greatest tales ever put to paper! So why do these movies feel so underwhelming? I enjoyed this I truly did, but not as much as I should have and that right there is the problem.
Forest scene was great
As neat as the barrels scene is it's about as realistic as Tara Reeds boobs
Second movie, second stock scream
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Bilbo Baggins has never seen Arachnophobia (1990), don't.....pluck.....the web
Walnuts make great pillows
Whatever Cumberbatch was paid it was FAR too much
