Flick Pick: The Hobbit - The Desolation Of Smaug

The Hobbit - The Desolation Of Smaug
(New Line/MGM, 2013)

Currently still in wide release, the second film from The Hobbit in what morphed into another trilogy. Once again, rendered with excellence, even if this outing has much in common with The Empire Strikes Back in terms of leaving everyone hanging, but with it, Jackson has emerged all alone, besting even Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola in bringing not just three, but to this point, five worthy sequential movies to screen. (Even Spielberg couldn't get three good Indiana Jones movies, and Coppola could only manage two good Godfather flicks.)
