"If Gandalf ever gets back from defeating the Necromancer, I’ll kill him."
I just rewatched the ‘Desolation of Smaug’ and oh man…Giant spiders are one of those things that shouldn’t ever have been allowed to happen. Ever. But they did happen. And then they kept happening.
I shan't lie. A lot of the movie was erm, fairly unnecessary. But I was studiously ignoring that
It was the Azog storyline that I had an issue with (pretty sure he was meant to be dead?)...but I'm not going to complain too much. For all it's faults, I still enjoyed it as a movie
but without the desire to throw spoilers to those people who haven't seen it yet ..
you will get a note with my explanation about the gandalf issue
