but I question the need for a 'deadly killer Elf', the Elves in the book were in the forest feasting and merry making, they were not flying through the air killing things. why make the film even more violent? why the need for yet more battle/fight scenes? dont we have enough already? its violent overkill imo, and Tauriel is just another cliche fighter. The Elves of Mirkwood were supposed to be more rustic and they liked to party, why not show them in a more peaceful light, more enchanting, The way they disappeared when the Dwarves approached the feast has remained in my imagination as being a very magical and strange thing, it will be terrible if they dont show this in the next film. Mirkwood is a silent and creepy place, full of stealthy and weird creatures that creep up on the dwarves and Bilbo, this atmosphere would be destroyed by a load of fighting Elves charging about Killing orcs and spiders. Bilbo and the Spiders is another iconic scene that would be destroyed by too much fighting, he only kills the spider out of sheer necessity, he is forced to do it, deadly killer Elves destroy this balance.
