The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (Fantasy Adventure 2013)

Do you know how long this movie was? It was close to 3 hours and gosh did it drag ass. This was the second part of The Hobbit, and although it was better than the first, it still didn't have the same spark that made me like the original LOTR series.

This one had more dwarf adventures along with a fake elf chick named Tauriel. Why insert a whole another character who isn't even in the book? Peter Jackson stuck to so many nonsensical details in his recreation of Middle Earth, but he chose to bypass all of that with this brand new character? Maybe he knew that The Hobbit was boring as fuck and wanted to spice things up?

Either way it still felt like a Peter Jackson LOTR movie, but I just don't like any of the characters. They all seem boring and unmemorable. I'll watch the last film of the series when it comes out only because I have to finish it, not because it has any semblance of quality or potential.
