I was kind of expecting The Desolation of Smaug to be a much weaker film, it was alright though. Perfect Bilbo as always, nice NZ landscapes. I liked the concept design for Lake-Town in particular, now I can’t wait to see the place crushed by Cumberbatch the Stupendous.



It’s a pity Beorn’s bees looked so fake, but I think we got the atmosphere of the house. I aim at Beorn’s house when I think of a house.

I am so worried for my mason bees, it’s such a dry, warm winter, it’s no good for my bees, 200 of them, I’m so worried.
