If you’ve already looked at the Collective of Heroes Secret Santa contest, take another look. We realized that it was really hard to identify all of the artists, so we’ve modified the rules to make it easier. Now, your name will be entered into the drawing for every artist you correctly identify. The more you get right, the more likely you are to win!
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
It’s unfortunate that the Lord of the Rings movies were made before The Hobbit. If the books had been adapted in order, they could have built from the simpler, more personal story of Bilbo Baggins to the grand epic of the trilogy. What we get instead is a ridiculously bloated prequel that’s trying too hard to be as big (and lucrative) as its predecessor. Which isn’t to say that the first Hobbit movie was bad, but its runtime was definitely padded, and the relentless action sequences started to get a little tiring. Still, I’m eager to see some of the iconic scenes shown in this trailer. (But what’s going on with Legolas? He looks like he’s made out of plastic.)
