MFC, my friends, I can't tell you guys how utterly satisfied I am with the wonderment that took place last night. As soon as I get home I couldn't stop thinking about it until I fell asleep for 5 hours and awoke this morning furiously putting to words all of my thoughts, both good and bad. I've been writing this review for the past 4 hours or so and while there are some minor spoilers I'd say it's more of a reactionary piece to the film that doesn't disturb any key plot points in large detail. I will say, however, that it is pretty damn long and possibly the longest I've written. In short DOS greatly improves on AUJ with some of the best action sequences I've ever seen and a much darker tone, but the faults of CGI and a visual effects abundance are still there at times. It doesn't hinder the picture and it's source material too much though, and the importance of the emotional core of the characters shines through from the very center. My favorite film of the year.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug



Hobbit2-poster1

Directed by: Peter Jackson
Written by: Peter Jackson
Cast: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, Hugo Weaving, Christopher Lee, Andy Serkis, James Nesbitt, Aidan Turner, Jed Brophy, Rob Kazinsky, Ken Stott, Benedict Cumberbatch
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy
Official Site: www.thehobbit.com
Plot: The Company of Dwarves and Bilbo Baggins move closer to The Lonely Mountain and their confrontation with Smaug The Terrible

Review:

I can't remember a more recent film trilogy that was met with such a mixture of excitement and scrutiny from hardcore fans as much as Peter Jackson's newest adaptation of The Hobbit. Last year's An Unexpected Journey was divided amongst not only critics and fans but the most admirable of "Ringers" who follow J.R.R. Tolkien's texts as religion. After viewing The Desolation of Smaug last night I noticed that this trend will not only continue but build towards another stunning entry in the series that will once again cause uproars among the most dedicated of Lord of the Rings fans. What people desperately need to realize is that The Desolation of Smaug is not the second part in a film trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit", it's the second part in a a series based off of that novel as well as The Appendices of The Lord of the Rings and entirely new material. The Hobbit, for as wonderfully earnest and gorgeous as it is, is little more than a whimsical children's tale that opens up the imagination and plays against the light-heated wonderment of visiting a new world. It's a stark contrast to the dark thematic elements of Tolkien's more famous follow-up The Lord of the Rings, and those changes are drastically evident while reading both novels back to back. Since Peter Jackson brought the film versions to life in the opposite order...[more]...

Finally got a chance to read it! And this is one damn excellent review man..it truly is. I could not agree with you more about everything you said.

I need the extended edition of this movie right now! I'm sure it'll include more scenes with Beorn and the Master of Lake-Town, since we saw very little of them.

As for Beorn, I actually didn't think he looked as bad in the movie as he does in the pictures....of course, it's still a horrible design, but it looked a little better in the movie. Ugh, he just reminds me of a fucking Thundercat. What did you think?

JohnLocke2342
JohnLocke2342 at 03:58 PM Dec 15

^ Thanks a lot man! I feel the same way you do about the extended cut because this movie felt almost rushed ahead at times you know? Not that it was a bad thing, because it wasn't, but for a Rings movie it felt like Jackson was cutting in places.

As for Beorn well, I felt the same way. The design was still awful but maybe it's because of either the fact that we only got him for one scene or the performance (which was really solid) but I didn't find it as awful. I guess that old saying "it looks better on film" holds true at times but I still wish they went with his original design from the book. Also bro a Thundercat is hilarious, I never thought of that hahaha

Did you notice they were setting up a potential showdown between him and Azog? I'm thinking he comes with Radagast to rescue Gandalf in part 3 (possibly) and has a much bigger role.

Mr.Blizzo
Mr.Blizzo at 06:09 AM Dec 17

^Yeah there were moments where it did feel a bit rushed, but it definitely wasn't a bad thing. I'm anxious to find out how much will be added to the extended cut...it seems like a good 20-30 minutes could be added to it. For as long as it was, it just flew by.

There were definitely some hints at a little showdown between Beorn and Azog...maybe at Dol Guldur. That's a good guess man, I can totally see that happening with Beorn accompanying Radagast.

I forgot to mention how much I loved Evans as Bard. He was fucking great!

The Day of Desolation - Smaug

I know that last night I said I was done with these Hobbit blogs but I have one more to bother you with before I disappear back into the shadows from whence I came, I promise!


Played by: Benedict Cumberbatch (Voice and Motion Capture)

Who is he?

"My armour is like tenfold shields, my teeth are swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail is a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death!"

Well, at last we get to the titular character of the movie in Smaug The Stupendous. He’s one of the last great dragons of Middle-Earth and probably the most wealthy after he took over Erebor and hoarded mountains upon mountains of gemstones, minerals and GOLD. You see, dragons are deliciously greedy creatures and want as much gold as physically possible to be in their possession. Once Smaug attacked Erebor he destroyed all those inside and kept the Kingdom to himself for over two decades, since nobody and I mean NOBODY would dare mess with a dragon of that size and strength.

Enter Thorin and his Company on their trek back to Erebor to reclaim their homeland and slay a creature that few believe can actually be slain. His armor is basically impenetrable, he breathes fire like 400 flamethrowers launching at once and his sense of smell is unrivaled to almost any creature of Middle-Earth. On top of ALL OF THAT he is incredibly intelligent, brilliantly confounding and oftentimes immersed in the thought and planning against his foes.

For those that found the “Riddles in the Dark” sequence between Bilbo and Gollum to have been the standout moment in An Unexpected Journey then you will most definitely be blown away by the confrontation between Smaug and Bilbo. Everything I’ve read about this movie includes a solid paragraph or two of people gushing over the creature of Smaug and the performance of Benedict Cumberbatch, whose voice is so booming that it echoes off the walls. Cumberbatch also did motion capture work for the dragon Smaug which few people actually realize, and for those of you that have seen Sherlock you will undoubtedly be ecstatic to see him and Freeman face off on screen together. The Desolation of Smaug will be an incredible ride and one that’s been building towards the most crucial moment in the book that fans have longed to finally see on screen. So if all indications are correct the epic Smaug confrontation will be the highlight of the film and live up to all of our expectations and than some.

Also this season of Arrow saw Laurel relegated to nothing more than background filler and the show simultaneously had hands down it's best season so far. Coincidence? I THINK NOT! I hope they keep this going and eventually write her off because she realllly isn't needed anymore.. like at all.

JohnLocke2342 updated his STATUS: 12 months ago

Alright sorry, I'm ok now.. anyway Arrow, yeah, that midseason finale was really good. You can tell that the writers are comic fans with all of the awesome winks and nods, specifically (MINOR SPOILERS INCOMING!!) the flashes of lightning going down Barry's temples that looked like his mask. It's really morphed into one of the better shows on TV that I watch and I'm really happy I got back into it.

While last night brought a close to one trilogy tonight brings the invitation to another. An Unexpected Journey is not without its flaws but at its heart lies that same sense of adventure and majesty that Rings had. The source material is a much more whimsical and lighter tone than the heavy thematic elements of Rings and I thought Jackson struck a cohesive balance between the two franchises. By not committing too far in either direction he was able to give us an introductory adventure that was both new and familiar at the same time. This was, without a doubt the very wonderful return trip to Middle-Earth I waited almost a decade for.

The Hobbit Countdown - ONE DAY!! - Bilbo Baggins



Played by: Martin Freeman

Who is he?

In the middle of the earth in the land of Shire
Lives a brave little hobbit whom we all admire.
With his long wooden pipe,
Fuzzy, woolly toes,
He lives in a hobbit-hole and everybody knows him

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo- WHOA, sorry about that, I don't know where the fuck Leonard Nimoy came from with all of his singing. Bilbo Baggins is perhaps the most famous Hobbit there ever was and he resides in Bag End under the large oak tree in The Shire. Son of Belladonna Took this little hobbit lived a mildly lenient life up until Gandalf whisked him onto an adventure and changed his entire perception about life.

That burning spirit and passion for adventure came back to him at this time and it brought out a whole new Bilbo that we see in The Fellowship of the Ring. It's very refreshing that they kept with the spirit of the novel and decided to make Bilbo the worrisome character that he always was rather than the free spirit we remember in The Lord of the Rings. Enter Martin Freeman, the only choice that I or half of the fans on the planet had for a good 8 years and BOOM, the rest is brilliantly perfect cinematic history... and there's much more to come!



What can we expect in The Desolation of Smaug?


You can expect a more centralized focus on Bilbo this time around since he'll be taking a back seat to the events in The Battle of the Five Armies for the next movie. I think because of this he'll get another large role and a MUCH BIGGER character arc this time around. You'll see him become a hero in the Mirkwood Forrest and go one on one with Smaug the Stupendous inside the golden hills of Erebor. This in particular should be the highlight of the movie much like the Riddles in the Dark scene was and I'm very much looking forward to it. Fans of Sherlock will be that much more excited to see these co-stars and best friends face off with one another and that only adds another element to the scene.

All in all he's THE FUCKING HOBBIT IN THE HOBBIT so it'll be a safe bet to see our hero commanding the screen yet again in The Desolation of Smaug. Only this time you'll see a Bilbo waging battles, coming up with plans for escape, leading the charge in crucial situations and even taking matters into his own hands rather than hiding in the background. It's the beginning of the Bilbo we love and admire and I can't wait to see it.
