If despite reading my review of the first installment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, you (as I did) still held out hope for improvement and wanted to see the second movie: The Desolation of Smaug, here’s what I have to say about it . . .

If you like no-look orc-killing, unfaithful adaptations, dwarf-elf romances, and falling dipthongs (smaowg) then this is the movie for you. If NOT, you might just want to wait until it comes out on DVD.

That is all.
