I LOVE The Hobbit movie series and plan to collect all three of the movies. Well, if you have not picked up the second film yet, then now is your chance. Amazon Canada has discounted The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug from $24.99 down to $13.88. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.
I made sure to price compare with other retailers to ensure you are getting the best deal. This is what other companies are selling this exact Blu-Ray for:
- $21.99 @ Best Buy Canada
- $21.99 @ Future Shop Canada
- $19.96 @ Walmart Canada
Amazon Canada has the lowest price for this movie. I am stoked at this offer because, out of all three movies, this is bar far my favourite. I love the scene with the dwarves in the barrels going down the river while the orcs are trying to kill them. AWESOME!
Also, in this movie we meet the dragon. I have read The Hobbit many times over since I was a child and my favourite part was always the dragon. Not only was he a powerful force to be reckoned with - he also seemed rather intelligent. Smaug was not just another mindless beast. i think Benedict Cumberbatch portrayed Smaug very well and I love the scenes with him versus Bilbo.
Honestly, for under $14 this movie is an absolute steal. When I saw the price dropped I could not believe my eyes and I am wondering how long this offer will last. I suggest buying soon rather than regretting later. It is wicked cool that such a popular movie is on sale for such a great price right now.
Now, this Blu-Ray edition appears to give you more than just the movie according to this reviewer:
Even with the extra scenes, this is a much more action packed movie than the first Hobbit movie. If you are at all interested in how films or special effects are made, then this Blu-ray is worth the price just for all the extras. If you do not care about the making of materials, this version may not hold as much value but the extended Gandalf sequence is probably worth the extra price.
I am usually not into watching the movie extras on my disks, but this is one movie I would watch all the extras for because I love the world of The Hobbit. By the way, if you were curious about the making of Smaug or just like to see Benedict hump the ground, check this out:
