The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug
Now most people can agree that this is the best of the trilogy. And although it's not my personal favorite, I would say that it is the best made of the three Hobbit films.
This is honestly an outstanding movie. Everything has been improved from the first film. From it's pacing, to it's character development, and especially it's action.
The film flows much smoother this time around, and unlike last time, we're thrown right into the adventure with a great and exciting introduction. And from then on we see more and more of what Middle-Earth has to offer. I think honestly that's my favorite part of the film. We see just so much of the mythos. We see Mirkwood, the Woodland Realm, Lake Town, Erabor and each has such a unique design, esthetic and culture. It's mesmerizing at times.
And like I said. The characters get some much needed development this time around. We get to see a lot more of the dwarves and their personalities and you grow to love them a lot more. It still has room for improvement, but it's great nonetheless. And then another great thing about this movie is the three great new characters. Tauriel, and Smaug. All three are great, but Smaug is just a whole other level of awesome. The fact that they used motiom capture for a dragon is just astonishing to me and it turned out really good. Benedict Cumberbatch's performance was spot on as well.
I think the only real problem I have is the ongoing Sauron subplot. It wasn't necessary in the first film, and it still isn't here.
There's so much more I wanna talk about. Howard Shore's amazing score, the great cinematography, the outstanding special effects and so much more. But I'm running out of space. But if you were not a huge fan of the first film, give this one a try. It's a really fun film and it fits in nicely with the Middle-Earth saga as a whole. I give The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug a 9/10
