Saw it tonight, I know I'm late, really really enjoyed it. My complaints are all pretty minor: there's only so many times you can see Legolas surf down an orc while killing another orc, or kill two orcs with one arrow, also I hate it when he goes from one or two sentences in elvish into one or two sentences of english and then back again. Just make the whole damn thing one or the other, you're mixing your songs up like Pitbull and its annoying. I also didn't like how they ended it, just too abrupt for something that could've taken 30 more minutes and you could've taken out 30 minutes worth of other useless dialogue, like you didnt have to do the love angle at all, you could've just had Tauriel wanting to go help the dwarves because she didn't want to be locked behind gates for eternity and that would've been just fine.

Loved Smaug, obviously. Benedict Cumberbatch is just awesome IMO and the banter between him and Bilbo and the Dwarves was pretty great too. The CG in some of the scenes was so believable and in other scenes... not so much. Oh and the part where the Dwarf bursts his hands through the barrell with weapons to fight the orcs, OMG I almost died laughing. Just a great movie all around, I'd rank it third amongst all the LOTR/Hobbit movies.
