Tolkein's 'The Hobbit' is talk of film town. Smaug is the sharp minded, smooth tongued, tricksy, terrifying dragon with a weakness for riddles and a jewel encrusted belly.

"As with most dragons, Smaug's scaly hide is nigh invulnerable, yet his soft underbelly is vulnerable to attack. However, centuries spent sleping atop his golden hoard has caused gold and gems to become embedded in his flesh, creating essentially an impenetrable armour."
