5.0 out of 5 stars another classic March 19 2014
By Sheilah HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
I absolutely loved this movie, but let me at least warn you that if you read the book, and thought that the first movie took liberties, well, this one basically took the main concept of the book and built a story around it. So, die-hard Tolkien fans might be very disappointed and annoyed at this book. Or, if you are like me, I am so used to movies doing this, that whenever I am going to a movie based on a book I do not expect much at all.

Anyway, first off, as to be expected, the acting was phenomenal. I am always amazed when actors can jump from character to character, and play them so well without me comparing to their previous roles, and every actor here was able to do that. They are all so talented that you cannot help but believe they are the character in every role they play.

The cinematography and graphics were also amazing, I absolutely how the made Smaug look, so much expression, intelligence and detail, yet so animalistic.

As for the story, even though it takes great liberty, it was still lots of fun to watch, and there were many scenes that had me on the edge of my seat, paired with others that had me smiling the whole way through.

Overall, I think this is a must watch. If you haven't watched the first one, you really should, and then watch this one! My only hesitation in buying this copy is that I know an extended version will be coming out, and I would prefer to own that one.

Should you buy? yes, unless you also want to wait for the extended version
Should you watch? yes

On my hand-dandy movie scale, this scores a 10
. 0 - burn this, and pretend it never existed;
. 2 - skip theatre; borrow from a friend for free when on DVD/Blu-ray
. 4 - skip theatre; rent on $1 day when on DVD/Blu-ray

4.0 out of 5 stars I am fire. I am death (spoilers) Feb. 24 2014
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
They have fought past goblins, trolls and a corrupted forest, but now Bilbo and the dwarves will face their worst enemy: the dragon Smaug.

And despite some big deviations from the Tolkien source material (did we really need a romantic subplot for Kili?), "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" is a riveting, passionate ride. Lots of action, lots of strong acting all around, and a dragon who is genuinely scary -- not to mention more groundwork for the original "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

Thorin's company sets out on a perilous quest through Mirkwood, where they encounter the spooky skin-changer Beorn (Mikael Persbrandt), Azog's orcs and an infestation of spiders. But the most dangerous is the wood-elves led by the Elvenking Thranduil (Lee Pace), whom Bilbo (Martin Freeman) must free the imprisoned dwarves from.

Even worse, Gandalf isn't with them -- he must investigate the threat coming from Dol Guldur. First he ventures into death-trap graves in the fells, and then into the heart of the old fortress itself.

Meanwhile, the dwarves smuggline themselves into Laketown, with the help of the bowman Bard (Luke Evans). But Bard soon discovers their true mission, and believes that Thorin's (Richard Armitage) quest will rouse the dragon to kill them all. And when Bilbo is sent alone into the mountain, he will find that that may just happen...

If there is one word to describe the second "Hobbit" movie, it's "passionate." There are many scenes that brim over with powerful emotion -- moments of crushing despair, triumph, and a grinding sense of fear as Bilbo must grapple with a building-sized dragon who clearly is scaring him out of his little hobbit pants.

love the movie, billbou is smarter the the others put together and with purier motives. the intro of the elves not what I expected but a very lively middle of the 3 part movie can't wait to see what the dragon does and how they destroy him.

I had studied the book in school several times and I am so delighted The Hobbit was finally put to film. I would just like to know why Peter Jackson ended it where he did. I'm looking forward to the next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning May 25 2014

The visuals on this movie are simply amazing.

Yes, it is long and dragged out (you have to expect that when 1 book is turned into 3 extended length movies) and yes there has been extra story added in (I won't detail that so I don't ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet) but that all flows together well, and as mentioned it looks incredible.

That was the main reason I bought this, and in the 3D. The visuals, the scenery, everything is so detailed and so perfectly done, it's just pure eye candy. Worth seeing for that alone.
