The Desecration of Smaug

Mrs. Drang and I went to see the second Hobbit movie Friday night.  I was going to write up the experience, but Daddy Bear saved me the trouble.

A note on the title of the post:  It's a device.  Despite having written a few term papers on The Lord Of The Rings for English classes in High School, I do not consider myself a die-hard Tolkein fan.  I quite enjoy reading Harvard Lampoon's Bored Of The Rings, and laugh at people who consider it or the "Secret Diary" websites that came out after the original LOTR movies to be some sort of heresy.

Thanks. I enjoyed it, but Jackson stretched that poor story line until it squealed.
