The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug the Talkative and Long-Winded

For those of you who recall, although I really looked forward to the first Hobbit movie adaptation (An Unexpected Journey), I didn't enjoy it as much as I wished to. That being said, the sequel- 'The Desolation of Smaug' was thoroughly enjoyable- despite (or due to, perhaps) the departures from the source material.
Now as I'm too lazy and tired (it/s 4.30am at this point), I'll just list down the thoughts I had throughout the film:

Thor's Game: Buttering the Path to more Elvish Deviance, and Philosophical Discussions with Pigs and Trees

The story so far: the god of mischief Loki, bored with nothing to in his Asgardian prison cell, fills his time by manipulating the human race on another world into fighting a war with an alien race colloquially known as the buggers, because what could be better than some sporting buggering, after having been buggered to the throne by a well-meaning if rather beef-brained brother? Said brother still manages to save the day though, by throwing his electrical hammer into this paragraph which is composed of nothing but nonsensical drivel due to the fact that the writer is simply stalling for time while trying to think of something to say about either film which somehow makes sense- pauses for breath- while being somewhat entertaining, and... where was I again? Moral of the story: keep your sentences short or you'll lose track of where you were going. Now if you've somehow managed to stick through the above drivel because you're curious about why I've glued two movie posters together, tousle your hair like how a senior citizen would, taking pride in the amazing achievement known as patience- here's why I did so. I'm too lazy to do two separate reviews, and I simply don't have the confidence that I'd have enough to say about either movie to warrant a separate post for each one, so short that they'd be better off being posted on twitter in 10 separate posts in intervals of 10 atomic minutes.
