I will show you revenge!

the Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug (2013)

The action is often choppy but generally exciting. it gets bogged down by too many
pointless bits of foreshadowing for Rings (everything with Gandalf is entirely 
inconsequential, a joke about gimli as an infant falls flat). Which all gets in the way og having a fun romp. It also has an unfortunate tendency of sidelining Bilbo in his own story.

There is a very very strange moment where an Elf appears to give a handjob to a dwarf. she's bathed in a heavenly glow and he appears to enjoy it as opposed to a dull hue and a vague feeling of dissatisfaction which i guess is how you know it's a fantasy film.
