      Seeing Human Nature from "The Hobbit 2: The Battle of Smaug" (3)

      When the dwarves finally escaped from the elf kingdom and temporarily avoided the pursuit of the orcs, they were fortunate to meet the "revolutionary" Bard of Longhu Town, who helped them cross the Long Lake and came to the last road to the Lonely Mountain. stand.

      Bud is very worth mentioning. From him we can see a person's struggle against evil forces, his deep love for his family, and his fear of the ultimate evil force - Smaug. This man fuses the desires and contradictions of the...

      Turn and turn in the ruins

      The real desolation is in the pocket that bilbo turned over and over. In the section of the most porridge rapids warrior drifting, the swift and agile little leaves are replaced by the RPG, and the daddy Semei is cool and noble, and he turns his head, turns his body, and swings his sword. I can hold it. Thorin is still bitter and affectionate, Kili has both sides, one hand is close to brotherhood, one hand crosses the world and the world, smaug has changed from a fire dragon to a golden dragon,...

      The Last Middle-earth Comes to Reality

      Fourteen years later, this is the last film from Peter Jackson's Middle-earth.

      I once wrote that a particularly good-looking movie usually has two effects, one is to make people keep moving Star Wars from the screen to the mind and continue to shoot Mars, and the other is to make people very quiet, in the calm, you can dark tide surging for a long time. Today, from walking out of the cinema until late at night, it seems that there is not much to say, and there is not much to think...

      Not as good as the first one, not as good as the original

      I'm not a very good whistleblower, and I'll be a little weirder in my grooves.

      I like the first one very much, because the first one restores the original work as a whole, and I am deeply impressed by Lao Tuo's easy and playful way of telling stories to his son. Especially in the part where the dwarves visited Bilbo, the dwarves came one after another, and Bilbo's hospitality and cleanliness produced a good joke. In fact, this scene also appeared in the Bichon family in the second...

      Bud especially likes it, Long Tai is chatty... The action scenes are too cool and the laughs are a lot... or my laughter is too low. Kili's BG drama always feels that the development is too fast, Xiaoye feels a little gloomy compared to the trilogy, is it because of his...

      The disadvantage of one novel being split into three movies is finally revealed. The pacing isn't as good as The Hobbit, and the three-line narrative isn't as clever as the original trilogy. This episode probably focuses on Legolas' action scenes, Thranduil's beauty, and King Sauron's real...

    • By Arne 2022-04-24 07:01:01

      The viewing experience is strong, the picture is extremely smooth, and the special effects are great. But before you invite the original party to watch it, you must remember to lower your expectations. Some very clever plots in the original work have been deleted. Compared with the first part, the content added in the second part is suspected of all kinds of OOC and dog blood. Although the Hobbit is only children's literature, it is also a pity that standard Hollywood commercial fragments...

    Very shocking

    The Hobbit: Negative Comments on the Battle of Smaug

    The result is the most important. The result of the film is: as a story, as an adventure, as the direction of a work of art, as a visual spectacle, it is as desolate and failing as the title in almost every aspect. ( " San Francisco Chronicle " review
    The biggest problem focusing on "The Hobbit 2" is still too long. The 166-minute movie length and the 3D version still make people's eyes a little uncomfortable. Although the second...
