The Hobbit 2 aka The Desolation of Smaug – was released just over a week ago but we did manage to find the time to sit in the 2 hour 40 minute sequel to The Hobbit 1.

All in all, a better tale than part 1. This moved a little faster, revealed some long awaited imagery, and didn’t seem to have any gratuitous 3D. Ohwaitaminute.. we went to the 2D version!

Recommended! Don’t even pretend to try and see the extended version when it comes out next year… except at home and with a PAUSE button available to you.
