The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honour in his search for the legendary Arkenstone. Unable to help Thorin see reason,  Bilbo is driven to make a desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead. An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends as five great armies go to war …

As I said last year, I love how Peter Jackson adapted Tolkien’s novel for children in an epic and magnificent saga. I was never bored and felt dread for the tragic ending. As expected I cried, not only for the dead, but for remembering as thirteen years ago I went and watch ‘The Fellowship Of The Ring’ being sure that I would never read Tolkien’s books … Not only I have read The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit, but I enjoyed them and would recommend them to everyone as classics from the creator of Fantasy. Without Tolkien we wouldn’t have George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire’s saga. As a conclusion I will say thank you to Tolkien for being so imaginative and to Peter Jackson for giving us two spectacular and emotional trilogies.
