what a weird, wonderful movie Can't Post

this is a strange sensation. i feel like i can simultaneously understand all the criticisms i have read and even agree with many of them...and yet what a thrilling movie. the action was incredible, even when there was a little too much of it (the otherwise excellent Smaug scenes). the effective dramatic moments are sparse and brief but there are some great ones (i don't even mind the healing scene that much since the scene that comes out of it is so good). there is some choppiness and unevenness and the movie is all middle, no real beginning and no real end...but it is full of wonders. Mirkwood, the barrel ride (my goodness, that scene!), Dol Guldur, and the majority of Smaug's stuff...this stuff represents the best adventure filmmaking i've seen since King Kong and RotK, no doubt. now it is up to TABA to bring the emotional impact and character arcs home.
