@ Grif

In all seriousness how do you want them to portray Smaug?

It must be warm inside that plane.

Well, in the book his name is "Smaug the Golden"..so, I'm assuming he had a gold sheen off him. Guess they went another way for the movie. Not exactly a deal breaker is it?

@Grif...after turkey dinner, how about some crow?

Oh I know that, but wasn't he called that before he settled in Erebor though? I always thought he was supposed to have a gold tint off his skin.
