Its actually misleading as the quality is barely better than a good cam.

The copy I saw was almost DVD quality, just washed out a tad. Waaay better than a CAM.

Caught this last Sunday and it was way better than An Unexpected Journey. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks the Orcs look a tad better but that isn't saying much. They look too video-gamey i.e. Azog. Smaug on the other hand was EPIC.

Spoiler Below
A lot of people were pissed that it ended the way it did. Some thought it was only 2 movies while others felt it was bullshit to end it in the middle of the action.
Those 2 hours really went by fast.

What were people expecting? An Unexpected Journey ended abruptly and there's an entire third movie to fill. When an audience gets pissed off like that it means they want more which means they will go see the next movie.

It's a little annoying to not get any immediate payoff but when you look at the ending in the context of how the trilogy is playing out, it works.

Wife and I saw this yesterday and we quite liked it.

I know where it was going to end, so I wasn't upset, wife was like "NOOOO!!!" tho.

I rather liked the two elves and their part in the story.

Was cool to see the 7th Doctor again as Radagast. Also... Sherlock Holmes and Watson...

Can't wait for part three.

The Desolation of Smaug received 3 Oscar(visual effects, sound editing, sound mixing) nominations today. The same amount as An Unexpected Journey. This 2nd part should have also received nominations for cinematography, art direction, and makeup.

Gotta say these Hobbit films are not doing too well with awards recognition. 2 years in a row they have honored the films with 3 nominations each. Desolation Of Smaug should have had 2 or 3 more noms for a total of 5 or 6.

Once again(like the 1st part) this 2nd part has received no big award wins. Thought it would have won Makeup or Production Design at the BAFTA"s today....but nope. Bugger all!! I have a feeling The Hobbit will end up like the Harry Potter franchise....numerous Oscar noms...but no wins!! I hope I am wrong though....
