Dwarves confined four times Can't Post

I’m struck by the fact that no less that on no less than three separate occasions in "The Hobbit" are all the Dwarves confined inside very tight closed spaces: (1) they’re "nearly suffocated" when confined inside sacks by the Trolls, (2) when they’re "feeling very sick" from being bound up inside spider’s web cocoons, and (3) when they’re stuffed inside "cramped" wine barrels like dogs "forgotten in a kennel for a week."

I wonder if the movie will show the very real fear that the Darves would've felt on each of these terrifying occasions? I hope they don't pass over it too lightly.

And there’s a fourth time (4) when you consider the Dwarves being shut up in prison, tho the cells were probably Elf-sized and weren’t as claustrophobically small as the other three places.

And every single time Bilbo remains free – and later frees the Dwarves.

This should make for some good comedic relief in the movies – basically showing all the Dwarves as somewhat less than nimble (in the first two instances) but it also shows that there is a dark, terrifying side to the lighthearted Hobbit story.
