Here's my second Hobbit edit. Once again, my main objectives were to remove Azog and the sillier over-the-top action and humor, and I also toned down the love triangle. I also felt the Desolation of Smaug should include his death so I added the beginning of Battle of 5 Armies ending my edit at the shot of Thorin approaching the front gate.

Cutlist:
-prologue flashback
-trimmed out Azog
-more Azog removal
-another Azog scene
-Azog references
-Dwarves getting locked up (avoiding creeper Kili)
-Thranduil implying Tauriel-Legolas-Kili triangle
-Legolas creeping on Tauriel in dungeons
-Azog scene
-some barrel riding nonsense
-Legolas & Tauriel capture orc
-Radagast birds
-orc pack & captured orc interrogation
-Alfred at docks
-mayor scene
-laketown spies & sneaking dwarves in through toilet
-mayor & alfred scene
-drunk bofur stumbling around
-Radagast sled
-Azog in Dol Guldor
-Thrain flashback
-moved dwarves outside door "that was a dragon" to later
-dwarves entering mountain
-dwarves' boss battle with Smaug
-moved up Legolas vs Bolg & co
-boss battle part 2 (keep bilbo & smaug "pay laketown a visit")
-placed dwarves at door "that was a dragon" here, used eric 1894 smaug smashing out vfx
-added beginning of TBOTFA up to TBOTFA title card
-first mayor & alfrid on boat scene
-shot of mayor looking up at falling dragon

runtime: 153 minutes
cut: 45 minutes
added: 12 minutes
