The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Only recently got around to watching the first of The Hobbit films. I fell in love with the Lord of the Rings films, and made an annual pilgrimage to the cinema to see them upon release. Somehow I wasn’t quite as fussed about getting to see The Hobbit when it came out, perhaps worried that it would make it just like a second LOTR film, when the book is quite different, a children’s book rather than a dark adult fantasy. I think the idea that this single book was being turned into three films also bemused me! In the end I needn’t have worried, I loved it, and having seen the trailer of the second, can’t wait.
