Welcome! [In reply to] Can't Post

Nice to have you delurked, and thanks for sharing your DOS thoughts. I'm pleased to find another poster who likes AUJ as much as the LOTR trilogy. Smile

I'm impressed at your detailed thoughts...I agree about the ending point; I do think it will end with the death of Smaug, followed by some short sequence to set up the suspense for TABA (to make the non-book-readers realize there really is a good reason for having a third movie). PJ ended FOTR, TTT, and now AUJ with battle sequences that are fully resolved, followed by a short bit that sets the stage for the next movie. I can't see he'd change things for DOS. Thus, the only battle sequence that would make sense is the one with Smaug, and ending with Smaug's death (thus fully resolving the battle sequence). However, someone else raised the point that this battle will be fought with our current heroes very firmly out of sight, which makes this hypothetical climax (at least from our viewpoint at the moment) rather less interesting.
