Desolation of Smaug


Reaction videos are such a thing nowadays. I guess firsthand reactions are no longer good enough so we must record others’ reactions, and sometimes, even reactions to those reactions. Which leads to reaction videos of reactions to reaction videos!

It’s delightful seeing not only two girls more excited for Smaug than I’ve been for almost anything in my life, but seeing these so often stern elves letting loose and giggling like idiots.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens this December 13th. Hopefully sooner than later Jackson will deign to upload a production diary instead of a video of giddy elves.
