I'm a little surprised they showed Smaug in the trailer.  Guess I thought he was like Cloverfield.

Oh, great, the barrel sequence is going to be some giant amusement park/video game combat scene.

Oh, bravo.

I won't see it. I'll wait until the next 2 are out, watch them once on DVD and forget about them until TNT shows them on weekends they aren't showing LOTR and Spike isn't showing one of the Star Wars trilogies.

They showed him in the first movie, flying around and burning things, didn't they?

I don't have a problem with a little artistic license for that sequence.

I really disliked the first one at first viewing.  I have come around and now actually like it pretty well.  The only thing that still irritates me is the crummy makeup job on the dwarfs.

Yeah, they went just a WEE BIT over the top with the color correction. As for the video game sequence, did you expect any different? Look at Goblin Town in the first one. Might as well have been Kingdoms of Amalaur.

Is it just me or does the CGI on Smaug look mildly awful?

I think that's the small screen effect. It'll look better on the big screen when your eyes can't even grasp all the bits.

Um, they had scenes where they showed the entire clover field monster in full as well.

Fucking strange this conversation is coming up.  Just last night I had a booze addled dream/nightmare where I was running around a city attempting not to be crushed by a clover field like monster destroying it....

Who's the "if you awaken the beast, it will destroy us all" at 1:18 or so? Please tell me that's not Bard.

Yup.  I had to check him out as well (Luke Evans).  Thought it was a Pirates--era Bloom, which was a double take.

You're not the only one who thought it was Bloom at first.  I wondered WTF was up with Legolas not being an elf.

Maybe they'll retcon it so that Bard was really Legolas in disguess the whole time.  I mean, no way a human could make that shot.  Only something Legolas could do!   why so serious?

Crap. I always really thought of Bard as a very manly, rugged type, more Aragorn than Legolas.

So did everyone.  That's pretty much how I remember him being written too.

Also, the images from the Graphic Novel took that tack as well.

Why do all the elves have giant bushy eyebrows?

And why did everything look like a videotaped TV show with super-obvious chroma-keying? Did the last one look like that?

I just watched it again and a lot of the cgi looks awful.  Watch for the Orc movement and the backgrounds.  In particular the eleven forest.

Apart from Gollum and Bag End all the special effects in all the LotR and Hobbit films are pretty bad.

I don't really mind and just think of it as Peter Jackson's style.

There is no leaving the Eleven Forest.  They'll be stuck forever.
