Peter Jackson did a truely wonderful adaptation of the book, the actors suited their characters extremly well, the music was powerful and really complimented the film and the animation/special effects were brilliant. As a strong lover of J.R.R Tolkiens writing i was a little annoyed that parts of the book had been changed or just taken out completely. But obviously the Book and Film are going to be different as it is only based on his writing.

The Desolation of Smaug has left me very exicted to see There and Back Again, though i am slightly confused as to how Peter Jackson is planning to end it, as in the film Kili gets shot with a poison arrow and can't go to the mountain and a few of the other dwarves stay to help him, when in the book this doesn't happen and they all make their way to the Lonely Mountain?

But well done for Peter Jackson making another amazing film, at the end i was sobbing my eyes out because of my dread and exictment towards the next one. Can not wait to watch it!:)
