But, oh, that dragon. I'd endure another slog through Middle-Earth just to spend more time with Smaug.

Second verse, same as the first, a little bit shorter and a little less worse.

There are things to like about the second Hobbit film - the director's vision of Middle Earth is as beguiling as ever - but the bloating that was a problem with An Unexpected Journey is an even bigger issue here.
