I loved Peter Jackson's THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy. In my opinion it ranks right up their with other mega trilogies, like STAR WARS, INDIANA JONES, DIE HARD, THE MATRIX (and others).

I was really excited for last years THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. I couldn't wait to see it. Unfortunately when I did, I nearly fell asleep. I thought it was boring, long winded and draining. My mother fell asleep not long after the opening scenes.

Never the less I wanted to see THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG. Maybe it was my lowered expectations or maybe it was just a better film, but DESOLATION rocked my world.

For days afterward I was thinking about how awesome it was! It was full of action and humour and thrilling moments that will keep you on the edge of your seats.

Two thumbs up. Definitely check it out!


  1. Yay! I don't even REMEMBER the first one. My hubs swears I didn't sleep through it, but I wonder. I've been nervous about Smaug, but I'm excited now.

    I hope you are having a wonderful new year.

  2. Thanks Jen! It's really great to see you still dropping in now and again! :)
    The year has started off great! I'm engaged!
