interesting to me Can't Post

When I read the book, ( I already know they were making the movie and knew the cast) I always felt that Bilbo was "mocking" smaug with al the compliments and praising words. But the trailer gives Bilbo a sense of awe over what he is seeing.

Just different than the way I interpreted it when I read it
