The one needs to fix his god damn hair and I hope the fat one dies. The movie in general tries to be a little too cutesy, Gandalf's sheepish nod as the elf queen is mind-talking to him was gay, but a group of nerds a few rows down apparently thought it was hilarious. Don't like the pale orc as a main enemy, it just seems like a stretch that he is so powerful. The rock giant fight seemed lacking. I get that there wouldn't be a movie otherwise, but I hate the way the eagles swoop in to save the dwarves in the tree only to drop them off about 500 miles from their destination, I would be mad as sh*t that Gandalf didn't have them carry the group closer. Also in the goblin caves Gandalf casts a nova or something and kills like 50 goblins but then decides never to do it again? Whatever. The actor who plays Bilbo is pretty good, and Smaug seems like he's going to be pretty bad ass in the next two movies.
Thanks for putting the spolier tag on. I really want to see this movie. I read the book and was engrorssed by it. I was one of the many people that think 3 movies is too much! The last battle better be epic in the last movie but that'a awhile off. If you like LOTR check out the book Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle-Earth
by J R R Tolkien. Great book but it stinks because a lot of the cool storys are....unfinished
Recently saw "Legion". About God being mad and trying to destroy the world. I liked the movie, lots of violence but lack of explaining. There was a need to keep a baby alive in order for mankind to survive although never came out excalty how that baby would help. My favorite parts were an evil grandma and an evil baby, I won't ruin it, those zombies/monsters were a thrill.
