Default Re: The Hobbit - "The Desolation of Smaug"

No, there should not be. But lots of folks today have come to expect it. And while I can understand a measure of SFX, when dealing with dragons, demons, et al, it should never be the whole point. Today, it's all big tits and explosions, with no regard for depth and profound drama.
