Desolation of Smaug Petition



This didn't take long to appear, but someone has started a petition to get Peter Jackson to redo The Desolation of Smaug. Yes, even if it gets a million signatures, it will probably not prompt him to make a new version of this film, but it will at least give him an idea of just how many people out there dislike what he has done with the source material.

'The Desolation of Smaug' Review



The good professor is bound to be turning in his grave. We went to watch the second installment of Peter Jackson's film adaptation of The Hobbit last night, which was the earliest possible opportunity we have had since it opened. I was actually down with the flu, but we went anyway, as this was the film we had both been waiting to see all year. Sadly, I regret to say that it is quite possibly the most disappointing film that either of us has ever seen.
