1. “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)” movie review.

    "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" is about as 'good' as part 1, but before detractors start groaning in disgust and giving up on the flick, I actually think you might like it. Of the entire "Lord of the Rings" franchise, this easily has the fastest pace, never letting the viewer catch their breath for about 3 hours.
