When the villagers gather on the shore after Smaug's attack on Laketown and learn of the treasury being lost, one villager says it's probably halfway down the Anduin. Anduin is not a tributary river to the lake and runs on the other side of Mirkwood, a world away for a simple villager and therefor not a likely reference even for the village idiot. See more »
The film's opening title is divided into two parts: "The Hobbit" appears at the beginning of the film, and after Smaug's death "The Battle of the Five Armies" appears. See more »

If you haven't read The Hobbit and/or if you like the first two movies: I envy you of sorts...
If someone had told me some years ago that I would consider walking out from a Tolkien movie opening night, I would have slapped them with a cod. Or a salmon. The Hobbit trilogy is crap.
It's little more than a long list of invented battles and love stories to attract a widest possible audience, as well as loads of idiotic storyline to make the story slide into the Lord of the Rings movies as smooth as an Elven ass.
I understand that some adaption is required from book to screen, but when dealing with a book more or less only surpassed by the Bible and the IKEA catalogue, one should tread carefully.
Do yourself a favor. Read the book. Let your mind be the big screen.
