 Rings!

I was very excited for the release of the Desolation of Smaug, and was not disappointed! The acting, characters, effects, and SMAUG were amazing! I absolutely love the book, and I wasn't expecting the movie to be the same; however I was delighted with the tie-ins and scenes that connected me with the book and LOTR movies. The action will keep you on the edge of your seat! I could've used more time to really connect with the characters, as it seemed like maybe too much action, but more of that feeling comes with watching it a second time. Although the begging was a little too dark than I like, I appreciated the clear distinction between the good and evil (which you don't get a lot of these days!) Its packed with awe-inspiring, wild, and heart-tugging scenes. Without going into tons of detail, my family and I loved this movie and definitely wanted to see it again! Thanks to Theonering for all you do!
