    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

    ★★½

    The mediocrity continues. The way I view the first movie kind of blankets the trilogy really as, and this could be viewed as a whole other issue with them, all three don't work enough as their own self contained films as well as LOTR did.

    Loved it, this felt like a proper movie. I forgot how effortless this kind of film is to watch, they really made some action bangers in the 90s. Nothing too crazy, just the sort of movie you can rely to have a great time.

    I thought the fact that Clint Eastwood got with the girl was hilarious and slightly dodgy seeing as he's an old man, but you have to leave your disbelief at door. All the characters are great…
