Oh my gosh the Desolation of Smaug was SOOOOOO SOOO SO SO good.
And Tauriel is like, amazing. Well written, strong, not defined by her love story but rather enhanced through it. I want to be her when I grow up. I’m so glad Peter Jackson created her, added her in. She’s basically the best.
I’m going back this weekend, I need to see a bunch more times.
