I thought that Thorin's dislike of Elves was from a concrete reason in the films.

In the first Hobbit film, Thranduil (atop his moose) and his forces show up, and Thorin shouts "Help us!" And Thranduil (to Thorin) seems content to watch the Dwarves flounder.

To quote Thorin in the Desolation of Smaug:

"I would not trust Thranduil, the great king, to honor his word, should the end of all days be upon us! You lack all honor! I have seen how you treat your friends. We came to you once - starving, homeless, seeking your aid. But you turned your back! You turned away from the suffering of my people, and the inferno that destroyed us, ihm rheid ahm rhad al sul!"

It's definitely a darker version of Theoden's "Where was Gondor?!" speech.

I always follow my job through.
