.:. SPOILER ALERT!! .:.
It just gave me the overall impression that the whole plot of this chapter was "sausage filling", as we say here in Brazil. Ok, Mirkwood and its spiders were awesome - though a little problemactic for arachnophobes like me -, and Thranduil is spectacularly... Overwhelming, to be polite. And I adored Tauriel (please don't crucify me for that!): she's a killing machine, flirty, funny and so sure of herself! It was very interesting to see how a younger and not so important - she's not from the "elvish royalty", but she IS the captain of the guard of Mirkwood! - she-elf would behave. I cheer for her and Legolas [gosh, such a fan girl!]!
But the dwarves took too long to reach Erebor! And what about leaving 4 of the company behind? Soooooo not right, Mr. Peter Jackson! And Beorn's part was too short! And Gandalf... Well, he just felt a little lost after he leaves the dwarves (again) and finds... Well, none other than Sauron. That was too much for me. And where the hell is the Necromancer Radagast spoke so much about?! Is Sauron the Necromancer?! Dude, now I'm confused!
And poor Bilbo... His expressions and performance with Smaug were awesome, but I thought he was so quiet during the whole movie that it made me sad! Nevertheless, I'll watch it again tomorrow and perhaps I'll change my mind about it!
Anyway, watch the movie and tell me what you think!
