The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug


I find it irritating that I am such a willing participant in the scheme to squeeze a lot of money out of me by stretching the relatively short Hobbit book into 3 movies. The whole series together is not worth the price of three family trips to the theater. Truly, The Hobbit should have been one 4 hour film rather than three 3 hour films. But I must admit that enjoyed The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, except for the end, which came too soon. Just for the principle of the thing, I shouldn't watch the third installment on the big screen. But I will... thus ensuring that more directors take advantage of my enthusiasm in the future. Bah!
