The Hobbit 2 - The Desolation Of Smaug (2013)

The first movie ended peacefully, the second not so! The credit music feels incredibly suitable, Ed Sheeran singing his hit song "I see fire, inside the mountain" ... "And if we should die tonight, we should all die together" ... "Watch the flames burn off and on, the mountainside... desolation comes upon the sky". Suddenly it makes sense! It dawns on me, the new dawn, the soundtrack this song was made for, and what a song it was.

The movie? Surpasses the first. In difference from the Lord Of The Rings series, there's no death. Not yet. No sacrifice. At least not noticeable such - the foes are falling like flies. But it comes close. The mountains of treasure, the quest to open the door that only one key can open - only in the last light of day, on the one day, the one and only. A growing evil, a crisis creeping on towards its culmination, the dragon, the stone giants, the elves... the way it's going, everything may not go so well for everyone.

It's a captivating mixture of adventure and fantasy, of special effects and real footage, and writing this as the credit music plays makes it all seem the more awesome. Magnificent. Each and every part, from the Elven encounter, to Sauron appearing as a flame in the darkness, to the heaps of treasure in the abandoned tombs of the city under the mountain. I can't wait for the next one!
