Desolation of Smaug Teaser Trailer

To be honest, I didn’t love The Hobbit. The Lord of the Rings trilogy rank among my favorite movies of all time, but The Hobbit (much like the book) lacks a lot of the depth of the LOTR. The movie took too long to even get out of Bilbo’s house, and then it was just run, get attacked, run, get attacked.

The new teaser trailer for the second Hobbit movie, The Desolation of Smaug, looks to be much better. I need character and story, and I hope that this film delivers. Despite my disappointment with the first film, this new teaser got me excited again. Maybe I’ll go re-watch the first one before I make a final judgment…

Quite frankly, Tim is a 17-year-old trapped in a 30-something-year-old’s body. He loves good TV – by which he means something with a good serialized storyline – and movies, and spends many of his nights immersed in a gloriously complex video game. He’s a firm believer that Lost was the greatest show ever made, and that includes the ending. Oh, and Tim is a staunch defender of the Ewoks and their place in the Star Wars canon.
