I finally went to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. You have to see this movie in the the theater to get the full experience. This movie was even better than the first on. I highly recommend seeing these movies. I know that most movies like this don't appeal to everyone, but I would suggest you give them a chance. If you like them check out The Lord of the Rings movies as well. The Hobbit came before the Lord of the Rings but they can both stand alone. The Hobbit tells you how the one ring was found and The Lord of the Rings tells you what happened to the ring after it was found.
