The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (8/10)

I loved the Lord of the Rings trilogy and I am glad that they are making these Hobbit movies, I wish they weren’t trying so hard to link the story of Bilbo with the previous films. It’s not nearly as bad as baby Greedo in Star Wars Ep. I but there is just too much attempted fan-service in here. The weaker story and characters keep this from being a great fantasy film, but it is still an entertaining ride with lots of great art direction and effects.
