Guest Movie Review - The Hobbit : The Desolation Of Smaug

The Hobbit The Desolation Of Smaug
How can we don't get a guest post for The Hobbit - The Desolation Of Smaug? Here come another guest review by my friend, Ben. 

Minor spoiler is spotted so if you have not watched the movie, enter with care ;-)

In many ways the movie [The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug] (DS) is very similar to the recent movie [The Hunger Games: Catching Fire] (CF).

- Both were big screen adaption of a famous book, even the demographics for the books were similar, Hobbit was a children book (yes it is) while Hunger Games targeted late teens
- Both were the middle of an epic trilogy/ quadrilogy
- Both were amazingly long, clocking more than 2 and half hours of screen time
- Both started and ended abruptly, “gently” reminding of the next movie instalment

But where both draw from the source materials were also their biggest differences. CF had to squeeze an entire book in a movie, whereas DS was to spread a very thin book into 3 long movies. And those differences have shown.

DS was way too long, throwing in subplots and plot threads to drag an otherwise simple story: Continuing where we left in [The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey], the dwarves, along with Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey, continue their quest to reclaim Erebor, their homeland. This kinda made those eagles in the last movie assholes as they didn’t fly the pack to the nearby mountain. 

So how do you add length into a linear movie? Director Peter Jackson brought back fans-favourite elf, Legolas, which didn’t appear in the book, and CREATED a new female elf, Tauriel. Officially Director Jackson said he wanted to give a feminise role in the all macho male characters, personally I felt it was to have an unwarranted love triangle among Tauriel, Legolas and dwarf Kili, and thereby further lengthen the movie. The affection was definitely senseless especially when Tauriel left Legolas to fend for himself so that she could take care of Kili. That’s so forced and out of character. 

In addition, I felt the writer simply made up Gandalf’s magical power as and when the plot required. “oh made Gandalf super powerful when dealing with the apparition of Sauron, oh he needed to fight common orcs or trolls? Just used the sword”

Another comment I had was Director Jackson fond of keeping the dwarfs alive, every single one of them! The last movie we already had every one survived all the mishaps with no even a scratch, this time the dwarfs simply outdone themselves by getting through tasks after tasks with lives more than those of the cat. And they were repeating showing the “you wouldn’t be hurt by blazing fire as long you were behind a pillar” cliché. You have THIRETEEN dwarfs; it is ok to kill off a few! 

The overly emphasis on action also saw character development taken a major backseat. Towards the end of the last Hobbit, we saw the warming up to Bilbo by Thorin. However in DS, despite Bilbo saving the dwarfs’ asses in every single turn, Thorin simply treated him like another disposable pawn. 

How did the supposed plan worked again? Bilbo was supposed to sneak in to steal the Arkenstone from Smaug the Dragon, so that Thorin could use the stone to unite all dwarfs to go back and killed the dragon? (no spoilers here, this was explained in the first movie) Hmm… but didn’t Smaug literally destroyed the then united dwarfs’ kingdom? How would the new troop stand a better chance? Also this had got to be one of the most predictable ending for the antagonist, as I dared anyone walking out of DS not figuring out how Smaug would die in the next movie, straight down to by whom and where. 

Now here’s the good part – technically DS is impeccable, if a movie is judged based on the action and effects, DS would have easily taken the Best Picture honour! The sets were magnificent, the actions well-choreographed and the scenes breathe taking. 

Special mention goes to the CGI effect of Smaug the dragon. This was simply the best rendition of the mystical animal with top notch voice acting making the 20 minutes of so scenes with Bilbo so much enjoyable and yet menacing at the same time.

Advice: watch DS in all those cinemas with the new-age technologies, be it the IMAX, HFR or Dolby Atmos system, and its only ONE 3D movie this, [The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug] is the one. 

Oh there is no teaser in the ending credits so you can head out, presumably to the nearest toilet after a 3 hours movie and Director Jackson appeared as cameo as the very first face figure shown.

Edge Of Tomorrow - The Badass Trailer With Groundhog Day Concept

Edge Of Tomorrow
Yesterday, I just posted the movie poster and movie stills from Edge Of Tomorrow. Today, the very first trailer is already here! So, I can't wait to share it here again.

This upcoming sci-fi of Tom Cruise looks like a groundhog day movie set in the future, just imagine you live and die everyday repeatedly, but along the way, you learnt something new and try to make correction/improvement with every repeats. Of course this is not something new but the trailer do provide some kind of assurance that it would be a promising movie. To the minimal, it would be better than Tom Cruise's last sci-fi, Oblivion.

Edge Of Tomorrow will be released in cinemas on 6th June 2014, in 3D as well.

Now, enjoy the fresh trailer below:

Edge Of Tomorrow, the upcoming sci-fi from Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt will be in cinemas only next year but the marketing effort is started to pick up it steam. Directed by Doug Liman (from the Bourne Trilogy fame), it is one of the most anticipated movie in 2014.

Edge Of Tomorrow will hit the cinemas on 6th June 2014 (in 3D) and following is the synopsis of the movie (source: :

The epic action of Edge of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Lt. Col. Bill Cage is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. 

But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski. And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

15 years after the last remake (Godzilla 1988), of which I quite like it.

By the way, Bryan Cranston is the famous Walter White from the popular Breaking Bad TV series.

With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Pompeii - New Trailer With Maximum Destruction (Feb 2014)

Pompeii, the upcoming historical disaster movie, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson has been released with a new trailer. The finale scene of erupting volcano looks epic. It looks set to be a sad ending movie.

Starring Kit Harrington, Carrie-Ann Moss and Emily Browning, it will be released on 21st February 2014 (in 3D). Before watching the latest trailer, take a look on the synopsis of the movie here (source :

It’s late summer in 79 A.D. and the city of Pompeii glitters at the foot of the mighty Mt. Vesuvius. MILO, the slave of a shipping tycoon, dreams of the day he will buy his freedom and marry his master’s daughter, COLUMBA. What he doesn’t know is that Columba’s debt-ridden father has promised Columba to a despicable Roman Senator to pay off an overdue loan. 

Milo does know that his friend, the Gladiator NIGELLUS, is being forced to compete the next day in a seemingly unwinnable battle in the Coliseum. As Milo tries to find a way to save his friend, he learns that Columba has been promised to another man and that he himself has been sold to a new master. Just as it seems things can’t get any worse, Mt. Vesuvius suddenly explodes with the power of 40 nuclear bombs, sending a torrent of 1,000-degree ash and smoke into the city. Lava flows down the mountainside, killing thousands. As Pompeii crumbles, Nigellus is imprisoned inside the Coliseum, Columba is locked inside her family’s villa, and Milo is trapped aboard a ship bound for Naples. 

As the people of Pompeii flee the obliterated city, Milo is determined to return to it to save his friend and his beloved Columba. With fire and ash destroying the only world he’s ever known, an ordinary man is tested to his breaking point in this heart-pounding tale of extraordinary heroism.

Now, enjoy the trailer below.
