Tauriel is just the kind of kickass The Hobbitt needed, plus a dash of starcrossed love

Seriously, love Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel.
Let's be honest.  We already know that this one just isn't for the Tolkien purists.  The Hobbitt went off the rails in the first installment.  And there's no going back now.  They brought Legolas back into the action.  The first film seemed bloated with action and lacked character development.  I've decided to embrace the chaos. 

And in this installment, instead of Kili and Fili helping Bilbo to find the door to the mountain, instead of camping in the Mirkwood forest for a month with dwarves establishing their characters through sharing their lore and singing their songs to each other, we got Tauriel played by Evangeline Lilly.   Really, it seems like a fair trade.
