The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug —  8/10

Peter Jackson takes quite some liberties altering the plot to provide more room for special effects which he delivers in the best possible quality, so 10/10 for these. But I guess I didn't want to be surprised when watching this movie, and its other features deserve only 6/10. Totals to 8/10.
