Okay, so I should probably just get this post done. I've been stressing about it, actually if you'd believe it.
Right, so Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was pretty awesome.
I loved pretty much all of it.
And I think we were all as scared as Gandalf when Radagasts bird flew out at his face.
The Kili/Tauriel relationship. Now, some peopel frown on this and others don't mind it at all. I rather liked it. And I liked Tauriel's 'He is rather tall for a dwarf' comment to Legolas. It made me smile. :) Some Ringers are absolutely disgusted with this proceeding. I don't mind it. And before people are ready to stamp me into the ground, might I just point out, that the Aragorn/Arwen relationship is not that much different. Expect maybe for the fact that Arwen is more elf than human. But just thought I'd point that out. Also, I reckon Tauriel will die as well. Just sayin'

Legolas was surprisingly a very interesting character to follow, I really quite enjoyed everything with him. From his awesome fighting, (Orlando Bloom has not lost his touch) to all the dialogue moments with him in them. Him and Tauriel are best friends but whereas he likes more than that, as far as I can gather, she sees him just like a brother. The love triangle thing better be cleared up, because it is a bit irritating nevertheless. I think that either Legolas will free Gandalf, or that he will see the armies approaching and somehow find out that Gandalf's imprisoned, or maybe he'll bump into Radagast and they plan a rescue, that would be fun to see! :D I actually think that Legolas was better in DOS than he was in the LOTR trilogy because he didn't just fight, he talked, and that gave him more character depth.
Smaug. Now, everyone was excited about seeing Smaug, weren't they? I was also doubly excited because Benedict Cumberbatch was doing his voice and he's Sherlock. And I also think that it was funny seeing as he's best friend in the T.V. series is John Watson who is also played by Martin Freeman. So very funny. :D
I was actually disappointed with Smaug. The thing that irritated me more than anything else, was the fact that his wings were attached to his front feet instead of being folded in behind his head on his sides. That just really irritated me. I like European dragons and I have never, ever imagined Smaug like that. Also, I always imagined him very, very red. Not gold.
