THE HOBBIT BILBO BAGGINS, THE WIZARD GANDALF and 13 Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, continue their journey to reclaim the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Along the way, they encounter the skin-changer Beorn; giant Spiders of Mirkwood; Wood-elves led by Legolas, Tauriel and King Thranduil; and a mysterious Man named Bard, who smuggles them into Lake-town. Finally reaching the Lonely Mountain, they face their greatest danger – the Dragon Smaug.

1. A LOT MORE OF DOL GULDUR. Specifically, we get to meet Thrain, Thorin's mad father. A sad twisted wreck of a dwarf, he reveals dark truths about the Necromancer (and hey, great performance!). The makeup and prosthetic effects for Thrain are just amazing. Wait till you see it. Richard Armitage also promises glimpses of a vast, bloody battle in Moria.
2. A LOT MORE OF MIRKWOOD. I was surprised and pleased to learn that two scenes from the book were actually filmed: Bilbo, Thorin and company crossing a slimy, enchanted river in Mirkwood. Contains some humor, some amazing sets, some amazing Martin Freeman acting, and a little bit of dark magic. Another sad scene contains a beautiful stag and Dwarvish target practice.
3. MORE OF BEORN'S HOUSE. And we know what that means: more of that glorious New Zealand landscape that we all love. All we know is that we see Beorn with big muscles and a bigger axe. We also get to see a whimsical scene ripped straight from Tolkien's pages, as Gandalf introduces the 13 dwarves and 1 hobbit in his care.
4. BEORN AND GANDALF. Beorn has a conversation with Gandalf about the dangers that lie ahead of the Company.
5. MORE THRANDUIL - SPECIAL FEATURES. Peter Jackson smiles upon us and gives us more Thranduil, including a conversation between father and son, and the dwarves, paraded in front of his mighty throne. Anticipate some elvish hubris and the bitemarks from Lee Pace's scenery-chewing. Note that the Thranduil scenes aren't in the Extended Edition, but in the Special Features. For more from that regal and bitter Elvenking, wait for Battle of the Five Armies.
6. MORE OF THE LONELY MOUNTAIN. The Lonely Mountain gets less lonely as Bilbo and Company explore the ruins of Smaug's desolation - Dale. Some awesome cinematography I can't believe we missed!
7. STEPHEN FRY, SCENERY CHEWER. Stephen Fry promised us last year that he would eat testicles in The Hobbit. He fulfills that promise. At the very least, he shows what a scheming conniver he is, expressing his hopes that "Old Smaug dines on dwarf for a day or two..." Poor Master of Laketown...
8. MORE EVIL ORC ARMIES. Honestly, who doesn't want to see more shots of an orc army marching to doom and a red dawn? Even if its just two or three shots, this filled me with sheer awe!
9. "THE WORLD OF MEN". Most of Laketown was a stunningly detailed set built for real, and we get to see more of the workings and tradings and the men that live there, through the eyes of a hobbit very far from home... Including a new chase scene never before seen! We also see the orcs attack the men of Laketown.
The best part of the Extended edition is it put back in some critical scenes that really should have been left in to begin with. I mean they actually explain why Thranduil is such a jackass. But they cut the needed story and exposition in favor of an extra 10 minutes of idiotic dwarves in barrels like some amusement park ride. Someone really needs to explain to Peter Jackson the difference between using a feather and using the whole damn chicken.
For Tolkien and LotR fans it is pretty much a must see in order to get to the end of it all. And the extended edition is the better cut. But if you haven't seen The Unexpected Journey this will make no sense to you. If you saw the prior movie but also read the book, this will make even less sense to you. Probably just best to forget that it has anything to do with JRR Tolkien and convince yourselves that this is the best Dungeons & Dragons movie ever made. Your soul will die a little less that way.
The Hobbit Trilogy is the best Trilogy I have seen since the original Star Wars.
Martin Freeman is amazing as Bilb and Richard Armitage does a great job as Thorin. Sir Ian Kellen is really good as Gandalf.
But I have a special place in my heart for all the Dwarves and Balboa scenes.
The spiders were as creepy as can be. And who doesn't think that Thronduil want perfect?
Legolas and Turkey were perfect additions.
But Smaug was the jewel in the crown. The effects used to give Smaug life and personality, especially Benedict Cumberbatch's voice, give Smaug legendary proportions.
Best dragon ever.
I am not a fan, at all of fantasy fiction. But the Hobbit movies are amazing.
Peter Jackson and crew did a stunning job of bringing The Hobbit to life.
I loved these films. Could the story have been told in less than 3 movies? Probably. And suffered for the abbreviation. The casting and chemistry were awesome. Didn't realize that Messrs Cumberbatch and Bennett were in the films until the credits. Should have. After all who else could possibly pull off those roles?
Many thanks to everyone who had a part in the making of the Hobbit films for a visually stunning, emotional and all around amazing interpretation of Tolkien's work. My only regret is waiting so long to watch them.
The parts that are faithful to the book are beautifully realized, and the invented portions are consistent and entertaining. As a lifelong fan of this series and all of it's attendant media, I couldn't have asked for a better representation of what my imagination has been conjuring all these years.

Facing the elves, orcs and Smaug are a double task, when you are not so tall and yet help comes from the strangest of places
