The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug

We went to watch The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug at the Vue cinema in Accrington yesterday - and thoroughly enjoyed it. A long film but, apart from some of the chase sequences perhaps going on just a little too long, far from boring. The special effects were superb and Smaug the most impressive dragon I have seen so far in any movie. I feel a bit sorry for the orcs, mind. Not only are they cursed by being ugly but are the worst fighters anywhere. For all their aggression they don't seem able, whatever their numbers, to kill even one dwarf, hobbit or elf in any of their fights, at least onscreen. If I were them I'd give up any hopes of martial victory and take up farming instead. Or wrestling. As warriors they're rubbish.
