"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" should be retitled "The Desecration of the Hobbit"
I was utterly shocked, from the beginning of the movie through to it's end, that Peter Jackson so blatantly diverged from the actual story. With so many additional freedoms that Peter took, the only thing similar to the actual book was a its outline, a very rough one at that, of the original story. I understand that Peter Jackson is presenting a version of his own with these movies, but he has gone too far in this second edition. While the cinema was great and the action was, by far, more intense than the first movie, I feel that there was no excuse for this movies contortions of the original characters and that the movie would have been just as successful while remaining truer to J.R.R. Tolkien's "the Hobbit".
