The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (Peter Jackson, 2013)

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.  –1 Corinthians 16:13

I’ve been avoiding writing this review for a while now because I just don’t know what to say. I’m sorry, but I have no insight here. It’s another fun movie in an ever-growing franchise that suffers from the same issues as the first Hobbit movie – too much CGI. That doesn’t mean it’s not enjoyable and a nice chance to escape real life, but it doesn’t pull you in and somehow trick you into thinking it could be real like the original trilogy and its ability to avoid CGI whenever possible. I don’t always feel like I’m in Middle Earth; I feel like I’m in a computer. The adventure and storytelling were still enough to reel me in and keep me interested though.  7/10
