Thranduil and Wascally Wabbits [In reply to] Can't Post

When the dwarves are fleeing Erebor you can see Thranduil and his army (or hunting buddies or whatever) just arriving and lining up at the top of the mountain to the right overlooking Erebor. I always thought it looked like an army, not just a hunting party, but if it was an army, then yeah, what the heck was he doing there? And if he hadn't planned on helping them, why show up in the first place - just to thumb his nose at them? ("No help came from the elves that day...or any day since." Pretty much says it all. No wonder Thorin is PO'd!) If he was there because he had heard Smaug was on the move, was he coming to see if Smaug had already taken Erebor? Or was he coming to watch Smaug take Erebor (in which case Thranduil has just been reclassified in my eyes from 'elf slime' to 'elf demon')? Makes more sense actually (as if it needs to make sense at all) that he was there with a hunting party...a very large hunting party. But with a hunting party that large, what were they hunting? Orcs? Ah well, we shall never know. But conjecturing is always so much fun, isn't it?

Oh, regarding the Bunny-Staredown with Bilbo and Fili....why didn't I catch that?! You'd think after 24 viewings that I'd have noticed! sigh. I guess I was just looking around for Thorin at the time. I'll have to watch that once I get the DVD. Should be funny!! Oh, and I too noticed what all the other dwarves were doing in the background when Gandalf and Radagast were having their chat. Yeah, it's fun to see things in the background, especially since the actors in their dwarf-modes are usually doing something. One of the reasons it's so much fun to see so many viewings is to notice things going on in the background.

Fili's shovel: oh, shovels are a necessity on any outdoor expedition I would think. You never know when you're going to have to dig a hole or whack a mole or plant a tree. Heh. (Oh, I can hear it now...are you ready? Not ready enough!...Aragorn: "You have my sword!" Gimli: "And MY axe!" Kili: "And my SHOVEL!!")

On another note: when the dwarves have just exited the troll cave and Gandalf is about to hand Bilbo the sword/knife/letter opener...there is Bifur in the background handing the skull of a goat (it looks like) to Kili...who is looking at it like..."What the...??" LOL!

Unfortunatly it's gone, my precious is gone!, from all cinemas here. sob! So I have to wait the Long Dark until the DVD comes out.Frown
