While a mini-debate sort of simmers around the interwebs about "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," and its worthiness as a standalone movie—even though it's basically a two hour, forty minute journey to open a door—The Onion gets right down to it and tells it like it is: simply put, nothing in J.R.R. Tolkien or Peter Jackson's world can even compare The Kingdoms Of Toranda.

Never heard of it? That's because it's creation of The Onion movie critic Peter Rosenthal, who believes that 'Smaug' is kind of infantile when compared to the first book in his own series, "The Shattered Amulet Of The Red Warlock." As usual, this is hilarious stuff from the dudes at the comedy site, so give it a spin below.

    ok i know your only doing what most would do to get his book to the top
    but no book comes anywhere near as complex or dazzlingly awesome as Tolkiens series, for if you think there are only the hobbit and the lord of the rings,try reading the silmarrion or one of the others about middle earth

    I loved the Toranda saga and can't wait for book nine! Please don't die before you finish them like George RR Martin did with Game of Thrones!
