    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

    ★★★★

    I liked this movie, but I can't understand why they changed the story so much from the book. It wasn't to save time, because they added things that weren't in the book, making the movie longer.

    It felt like the changes in the Lord of the Rings movies were made to make the story fit in a shorter amount of screen time. In the Hobbit movies, it feels like they are intentionally trying to make the movies longer and are…

    I never realized that this was made by the same people who did the Bond movies. Goldfinger is the villain in this one too.

    There's an awful lot of singing in this movie.

    In all honesty, I only watched the first half hour of this movie, but I could already tell that it wasn't going to get any better.

    I thought it started off kind of slow but picked up a lot as it went on.

    My biggest complaint for this movie is that the story seemed very weak. No one really cares enough about M to see her in this much of the movie, and no one wants to watch James Bond spending this much time trying to protect her. We want to see James Bond doing spy things, not babysitting M.

    Other than the weak story, I guess it was a decent action movie, as far as Bond movies go at least. It felt really, really long though, like they could have cut out about half an hour or so.

    There were a few somewhat cheesy moments, but overall, this was a really good movie.

    It's almost literally the exact same story as the first movie.

    It didn't seem quite as good the second time around, but it's still pretty funny.
