Second installment of 'The Hobbit' better than the first

I've discussed the dangers of 'Middle Movie Syndrome' or MMS before. As film studios increasingly take it upon themselves to trot out planned trilogies, we too often see second films that spend most of their time recapping the previous film and setting up the subsequent one, leaving these middle movies as little more than placeholders, filled with recycled exposition and frequent foreshadowing.
