The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review

unnamed

Throbbing! The word is throbbing! That’s what I felt while watching the movie and that’s what it felt like after it was done! So painful! But before starting the review per se, I must warn you:

SPOILERS ARE COMING!

So, if you’re reading there, I suppose you already watched it or are pretty courageous to spoil such a good movie. The movie is throbbing! It’s action nonstop! Scene after scene, they change places, new characters are added (and they’re quite alright you know) and action is everywhere! It’s not for the faint-heart! I realize now Peter Jackson is surely writing his name in history. George Lucas has done it, Quentin Tarantino has done it, Steven Spielberg too…. This particular work of Jackson will stand out for ever and ever amen!

HIGHLIGHTS

The movie starts right in the middle of action where the other had left. Without much effort, Beorn is already introduced and even though his role is diminished and one may ask yourself “why was he in the movie, anyway?” one may remember the pity when Bombadil was left out of Lord of the Rings. Not the same mistake again with Beorn.

Mirkwood scenes are fantastic and having multiple spiders in the scene was a bonus! That moment when Bilbo put on the Ring and immediately started to understand what the spiders were talking…..AWESOME! Ok….he took it out and he continued to understand them, but the concept was brilliant. Also, let’s not forget their dizziness inside the forest which presented to the audience the feeling of being drowned by the curse and the sickness felt in Mirkwood.

thdos-trailer02-062

I loved Thranduil character and his motifs. He showed some bad qualities in lots of scenes and their antagonizing, (Thranduil VS Oakenshield) brought sparkles to the movie. I really thought fight would start when they were pointing fingers on that scene. Legolas was very sharp in his character (very well portrayed) and as accurate with the bow as possible while Tauriel was the soft one. Kind, pretty and showing a good heart. Elves were fine, they played their part.

Barrels-Out-Of-Bond

The Barrel sequence was funny, quick, intense and even though you knew they would continue their venture, the tension was everywhere and by itself the sequence stood out (and you know…it’s just barrels down the river)

Necromancer was chilling!!!!!!!!! I know my exclamation marks and I wanna use them! His voice delivered and I froze every time he was on the screen. That black cloud speaking Black Speech ffffff it all and kicked ASS!

The-Hobbit-The-Desolation-Of-Smaug-Trailer-Breakdown-Eye-Of-Sauran

When Gandalf fought him (or should I say “tried to”) and the EYE came on, shhhhh we all knew Gandalf had become pumpkin pie by then! I loved the Eye of Sauron displayed that way and surely it’s gif-ready for every single Tumblr account out there!

Smaug delivered every inch of expectation I had. It was there! It was a REAL dragon the way Tolkien created! It was sly, it was evil, it was playing with its prey. Smaug had everything. I could not think of a better voice for Smaug, the tyrannical as well. Benedict remembered the good feelings Darth Vader’s voice bring to me. The treasure room scene was the crème de la crème and oh boy…….not for the faint-heart!

FAILS

Song, soundtrack, music and lyrics! Ok, lyrics may be forgiven a bit, but the song sucks big time! Aw c’mon, man! You may really think it’s a good song, you know all relaxing and stuff, good voice, vibe…but that’s NOT a song for that kind of movie!!!! Seriously? It takes away all the tension of the story portrayed in the 2 hours and 41 minutes and takes you to the beach beside a fire, roasting marshmallows…NO NO NO!

Gandalf-In-Dol-Guldur

Gandalf’s spell in Dol Guldur was one disappointment as well. IF that was Quenya, Gandalf needs to learn how to open the mouth so the vowels and consonants are well pronounced and enunciated! I didn’t like it! Bad taste in my mouth! Radagast on the first movie did much better! And that’s another fail! Where was Radagast? He was just a shadow of he could be. I know, I know, he’s very secondary, but but but;;;;; I just wanted more!

You’ll have less Dwarves than you could and should have as well. If you by any chance cannot remember their name by heart, you feel you don’t need to. They are not individually important, they are “Dwarves”. Thorin is the only one who is ONE character. But that’s just natural to expect with so many new characters and action!

Bard-The-Bowman

Bard was good but I didn’t welcome him quite well. I don’t know why. Actor was not bad, his role was fine, but…ahhh….I think it’s just me. Humans in Middle-Earth are kinda boring!

Conclusion,

I cannot wait for the next movie. How cruel they are! They shouldn’t do that to people. They rise the bar with every scene, you get in love with Middle-Earth and then….along came the credits! Astonishing desolation it was! Mesmerizing!

Everything WRONG with the Hobbit in 4 minutes or less

Truth hurts! I’m pro-Peter Jackson doing whatever he feels like with the Hobbit movies, Silmarillion, Húrin, Númenor…you know whatever he wants! The guy proved already he’s the man and got what it takes as a Tolkien’s fan to put his finger in our beloved stories.

BUT, Hollywood is…Hollywood and there’s always much money involved. Money is the root of all evil. Evil makes you sin. Sins is what you gonna watch below. It’s a cool video and seriously…you don’t need to take it….seriously. Sit back and relax, The Hobbit is still pretty cool. But the truth is out there too:
