I went to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug today. I am a very dramatic movie watcher, and since I saw this one by myself, I thought someone should be privy to my over the top reactions. This post is RIFE with spoilers, but since there is a whole huge spoiler called The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, I figure posting spoilers on the internet is a-okay. Also, I will say that watching this second installment in what is to be three movies really motivates me to finish the book. Before today the farthest I had gotten was just after Thorin and Co. left the bear-man’s house. So like, ten minutes into this movie. So many surprises! And now I want to know what happens next! You’d think that since Desolation of Smaug is the title of the movie that it would include some Smaug Desolation but I assure you that when the credits rolled, Smaug was still alive and well. Guess we’ll just have to wait another year for the next movie. Or I suppose I could always finish the book… Anyway, on to the reactions! Of course, there were many facial expressions and exclamations coming from my seat, but these are the highlights.
