Honest Trailers: The Desolation of Smaug


The Screen Junkies have released the latest Honest Trailer, this time for the 3 hour snooze-fest The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which if you haven’t seen yet could easily have been edited down a full hour and contains the most ridiculous action sequence of the 5 LOTR films to date. This sequence in the books is well done and clever, but in the movie is turned into a cartoon with Looney Tunes-like physics and such bad CGI at times I thought I was watching Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. I’m speaking, of course, of the barrel race rapids ride, soon to be featured at a 6 Flags near you. And I really don’t think there’s anything in the upcoming Battle of the Five Armies that will top it.

And I’ve yet to meet anyone clamoring for more Legolas. He’s a popular character, sure, and was totally badass in LOTR, but enough’s enough. Besides does anyone not think he’ll be featured throughout the inevitable Silmarillion Trilogy where the 3rd act will be further split into 2 movies?

Anyhow, as usual, the Screen Junkies nail it.
