The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug
Well the first thing to be said is that, for
me at least, this second installment of the movie was better....much
better, magnitudes of order better! While the movie still retained some
of the playfulness of the first, it also contained some surprises that
were most welcome. Without giving anything away, there is a scene with
Gandalf that was unlooked for and terrific. The CGI used for Smaug was
top-notch and did not feel at all like the cartoony Goblin-King in the
first movie...it was seriously good. While a couple scenes that I
personally looked forward to were not actually in the movie, in
particular how Gandalf introduces the group of dwarves to Beorn in the
book, it seemed to me that the movie would have slowed down in pace and
lengthened even more had it been included. While Peter Jackson is still
clearly following the Lord of the Rings template for the movie, this
only bothers the viewer on a couple of small points. I assume that most
of you have seen this movie by now, but if you haven't because the first
movie wasn't like the LOTR production, go see this one..it is better!
Unexpected Journey Movie Review:
I will attempt to provide as dispassionate a review as I can manage. Overall I really, really enjoyed the movie. The integration of
the entirety of Middle-Earth lore surrounding the One Ring, etc., was very well thought out and done. Parts of the movie bordered on brilliant
and made myself, as well as the audience, very happy. The Gollum scenes in particular stand out for me in this regard. Parts of the movie were a
little less than brilliant and had more of a Harry Potter feel to it than a Middle-Earth feel. The Radagast character and his rabbits seemed
more at home in a Harry Potter movie than in a Hobbit movie, at least to me. I tried to keep in mind that The Hobbit is basically a children's
book and the movie seems to be trying to reflect this in its feel. That's fine, no problem. The 3D was excellent and not overplayed as so
many movies in 3D are. The opening sequences were brilliant, the sight of Erebor in its full glory was a very nice bonus. Overall, the movie
had more of a animation feel than did the LOTR Trilogy, but this was not a problem. I knew I was really having a good time because the movie ended and I
was thinking there is no way I have been here for 2.5+ hours, so time went by fast as I was enjoying myself. The characters of the Dwarves
were well cast and portrayed, I was concerned about this after my first sight of them threw me off a little, but by the end they were endearing.
In particular the Thorin Oakenshield and Balin characters were particularly well done. Go see it, you will have good time.
