2LazyToCare, I know what you mean with the stupid scenes. Jumping over the floating barrels, a love story between an elf and a dwarf... Even though I've read the book when I was like what... umm, 8 years old? And I don't remember all the things happening in the book, it's still painfully obvious which parts are added to the movie.
I was already let down by the first movie so I thought that the second can't be that bad. But oh, how wrong I was. Even if I was not trying to compare it to the book, because the movie and the book and two totally different things, I just can't get over how ridiculous The Hobbit movies are.
Still I like the atmosphere in The Hobbit movies. It's much lighter than in LotR, just like in The Hobbit book. But that's the only thing I like. They went totally overboard with the funny stuff and "epic" fights.
The movie I can't wait to see is not released yet but it should be out on November; The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – part1. I've seen the previous movies and they were awesome.
