Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
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
Benedict Cumberbatch studied iguanas and Komodo dragons at the London Zoo's Reptilian House to prepare for the voice of Smaug, aiming for a tone that would "bridge between animal and human, a deep and rasping guttural dryness to the voice." See more »
At The Prancing Pony in Bree, the food on Thorin's plate moves around in various shots although he is not eating but talking to Gandalf. Also the cheese on his plate disappears and then reappears. See more »
[stares at Bilbo]
I know you're there. Why do you linger in the shadows?
[Bilbo thinks he's been found out... ]
[steps out from behind Bilbo]
I was coming to report to you.
I thought I ordered that nest to be destroyed not two moons past.
We cleared the forest as ordered, my Lord, but more spiders keep coming up from the South. They are spawning in the ruins of Dol Guldur. If we could kill them at their source...
That fortress lies beyond our borders. Keep our lands clear of those foul creatures. ...

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
