So we went to the cinema again today.
Ian is feeling much better.
This time we made it to the end of ‘The Desolation of Smaug’.
But did they have to end it right there?
Right at that particular point in the action?
Not fair. That’s just not cricket!!
But I guess it guarantees an audience for the third instalment.
Compared to the first instalment, I found this one much better paced.
The first one was a little hard going at times but this one was action all the way.
Early in the movie I found some of the effects a little obvious, particularly when they are all riding ponies to Mirkwood, but that was soon forgotten about.
The Barrels in the river chase scene was hilarious and the Pièce de résistance, Smaug the dragon was amazing and…… disturbingly attractive with Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice!! mmmmm
So, first cinema trip of the year done.
4th movie in three days total.
Bring on the rest of the year!
