The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Hello my fellow Tolkienites!
As I am sure you are fully aware that the new Hobbit film is out! So what did you think? Was the inclusion of the elves a good idea? Is Tauriel just another pointless extra character? Are there any jokes that insult the source material (Are there any chips? DISGRACEFUL!) And is the voice of Smaug seriously awesome? I personally will not see the film until New Years eve (My village wild swimmers team has a tradition) but I will definitely have strong views when I am qualified to hold them.
Enjoy the film!

Copyright issues

Hey everyone,
I don't know if this is just me, but all of my arrangements of anything Star Wars related has just been removed due to copyright infringements, despite me never having claimed credit for anything other than just enjoying the music and wanting to share my versions with others. Has this happened to anyone else? 

Thinking of making a separate account for symphonies

So, I have been planning out my first symphony. I gave it the nickname "The War Symphony". It still isn't flushed out yet but I have decided to have it be a programmatic symphony with this movement structure:

First Movement:

Key: Bb major
Aspect: Battle
Form: Sonata Form

Second Movement:

Key: F minor
Aspect: Death
Form: Not decided on yet but I'm leaning towards ternary form

Third Movement:

Key: Not decided on
Aspect: Battle again
Form: Scherzo and Trio

Finale:

Key: Bb major
Aspect: Victory
Form: Sonata-Rondo Form

The first movement is what I have flushed out the most out of all the movements so far in my plans so obviously, that will be the part I work on first. But I'm wondering, since I can't really afford a Pro membership(maybe a few years down the line I will be able to afford it but I can't currently), should I make a separate account to put my symphony score on once it is finished? And if so, should that account be just for my symphonies if I happen to want to compose more than 1 symphony?
