    So I just came home from seeing it. It's long, too long, and a bit all over the place at times. Having now seen two of the three movies I definitely think they should have kept it to two movies, it feels like they could have tightened it up quite a bit to the benefit of the series... That being said, it's better than the first one. The scenes involving Smaug are a lot of fun. The journey up to that point drags a bit at times. It still suffers from some of the issues associated with the first movie like the tone. One minute it's decapitations and blood, the next it's tumbling dwarves in barrels. Also some less than stellar CGI, they should have used more practical effects. Remember the Uruk-Hai from LOTR? They looked awesome and were guys in makeup and prosthetics.

    Pointing out flaws is easy but it's still a step up from An Unexpected Journey. Not as big of a step as I had hoped but it's a fun movie. Look for the overacting of the Elf King, I found it quite hilarious.

    Recently re-watched An Unexpected Journey the other night and was really bothered by the over reliance on CGI, like Big Brown said. Would have been so much better if they'd used makeup and prosthetics.

    Just got back. Saw it in 3D. Better than the first. The Smaug scenes alone are worth the ticket price. And I thought Evangeline Lilly did a really nice job. Only complaint is some of the edits were a bit abrupt in an obvious attempt to shorten it.

    Saw second one today and thought it was really good. Evangeline Lilly was awesome. IMAX 3D HFR FTW.

    Saw it yesterday. Well, I saw a movie called "The Hobbit", which at this point has very little in common with the book of the same name. It really is just fanfiction at this point.

    Yeah, you know... I went and saw it this weekend and while I still enjoyed it as a whole, I find myself getting more and more bothered by the whole thing. There was so much in the movie that was not in the book, and was clearly added for padding time and stretching it out over three movies, that it's hard for me to fully enjoy it. If Peter Jackson is really as big a fan of the source material as he claims to be, you'd think he might have a little more respect for it.
