Thought Desolation of Smaug sucked. I'm all for creative license in removing/tweaking things when translating from book into film, but I'm not a fan of the let's add all this other bullshit. I enjoyed the barrel-riding scene a lot tho. The one thing that definitely bothered me was the terrible overuse of this fucking look by Thorin:



That lookback, pissed off look with the slanted eyebrows. Had to have happened at least 7 or 8 times from my counting, probably more. If I remember correctly, I liked the 1 or 2 times he gave that face in the first one, but I think it got to overkill in Desolation.

I believe Jackson stated he included some other pieces of Tolkein's work to give The Hobbit trilogy more depth and life. Whether that includes the barrel scene or not, I don't have a clue.

Yeah, that's all fine and dandy. Making the barrel scene into a corny chase scene was...corny, and so was all the extra shit with Smaug that didn't happen in the book. Made Smaug look stupid.

Yeah just like every other blockbuster last year save Thor 2, the further I get from the movie, the shittier it seems. Man of Steel, Hobbit, etc. This one felt like a god damn theme park ride for most of the movie. And not in a good way.

I thought Thor 1 and 2 were about equal in how much I was entertained, maybe Thor 2 was a little better. Though I found Natalie Portman's character more annoying in the sequel, for some reason.

Yeah, it was at its weakest when it was trying to shoehorn her into the movie.
