From the carrot eater in Bree, to the "What have we done?" in Erebor, this movie is a roller-coaster ride, with a few bumps. Peter Jackson, hats off to you, first of all. You vision IS Middle-Earth for me. Smaug is THE best CGI character ever made. And Benedict's voice made him better than the best. The spider were scary and the Barrel Ride sequence looked spectacular and engaging. Mirkwood's creepy and Lee Pace's performance as Thranduil is impeccable. I am pretty indifferent to the love triangle but Evangeline Lily as Tauriel is a very fresh. The Dol Guldur sequence is amazing. I have already seen the movie thrice and I wouldn't mind going again. Eagerly waiting for the last installment.
