Bloated, filling and it doesn't always leave you feeling good after... Nope, we're not talking about Thanksgiving dinner but rather, Peter Jackson's journeys into Middle Earth. While "The Lords Of The Rings" trilogy are some truly epic, involving blockbusters on a massive scale, they are not without their issues, which are usually exacerbated by the Extended Edition versions of the films. But it's nothing compared, at least thus far, to 'The Hobbit' trio of movies, with the first chapter dull and meandering, at least for the first half, before things pick up once the hobbits get moving. Why J.R.R. Tolkien's slim volume needs three movies we'll leave it to Peter Jackson to explain, but we will say this: at least 'The Desolation Of Smaug' has a dragon.

And while the marketing team is smartly keeping a full reveal of the Benedict Cumberbatch-voiced baddie under wraps, we can perhaps get a sense of what the moments with the scaled beast will sound like. 43-minutes of Howard Shore's score have been kindly dropped online for fans, and what else is there to be said? If you're a fan of his work on the previous movies, that shouldn't change here. Meanwhile, as you channel surf this weekend while recovering from excess cranberry sauce, there's a good chance you'll see one of these four TV spots for the flick.

"The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug" arrives on December 13th. [Comic Book Movie]
