The Hobbit trilogy is living up to The Lord of the Rings so far. Desolation of Smaug was really good. I am continually blown away by the level of detail in a Peter Jackson film. I still remember the first time I saw the Fellowship of the Ring and sat in my seat with my mouth open for the majority of the film. That happened with each and every single film in this series to date. So much fun and the fact that Tolkien is brought to life in such a way is truly an astonishing feat.
