The 602 Club 10: They Didn’t Think This Through

downloadThe Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. 

The middle movie of a trilogy has always been the hardest to do. It relies on the first film, has to set up the last film and try stand up on it’s own. Some movies have done this really well, such as The Empire Strikes Back andThe Two Towers. The Desolation of Smaug also had the distinction of being the film that had the most added to it when the duology became a trilogy. Peter Jackson clearly had his work cut out for him.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined once again by Megan Calcote of Educating Geeks to discuss the second Hobbit film. We dive into the difference in filming time Jackson had and it’s effect on the look of this new trilogy, the new locations we see, Bree, Beorn’s House, Mirkwood, the Woodland Realm, Laketown and Erebor. All this while talking about the new characters and themes from the film. Listen Here
