These are the first two I'm a little worried about, Kili looks downright elvish to me...

I'm not going to judge until I see them in action tho

Elvishness... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think (I may be wrong) you're getting Kili's elvish look from his long, straight hair. I actually kind of like it, becuase it's a sort of rebel/youth dwarf look. That might not be the way they take Kili's character, but I'm betting he'll be spirited Cool

hmmm... [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree, Kili doesn't look very dwarvish at all. But then, should we expect all dwarves to be fat? Aren't any of them allowed to look cool?

And I do like Fili's dual swords...

Least "Dwarvish"-looking of the buch thus far... [In reply to] Can't Post

Rather undecided about these...at least Nori and Ori look like caricatures of "Dwarves"...

Still, sure they'll grow on me...

I would rather be watching Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"...it's going to be a long few years.

Okay, now, I understand that Fili and Kili are the youngest of the lot, but...a goatee and a five-o'clock shadow?

I think the cameraman [In reply to] Can't Post

must have done something which Fili found amusing, but ticked Kili off, judging by their expressions Tongue

Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

It is definitely the hair and thin waist line but given these are the younger dwarves it makes sense..

the look on Fili's face is priceless

You're probably right about [In reply to] Can't Post

it being the long, straight hair that gives Kili an elvish air. The bow/quiver adds to the impression too.

Skinny Dwarves? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not sure how I feel about that. It just looks wrong. I guess they all had to be skinny at some point, and these are the two youngest.

Definitely NOT what i expected [In reply to] Can't Post

Kili looks like Spanish dancer Joaquin Cortez with pointy ears, not dwarfish at all. But they surely look like they'll be the Merry and Pipin of the Hobbit. They look cool though. But that's not too dwarfish.Unsure

Are there L'oreal ads in these movies? [In reply to] Can't Post

First thing I don't quite like of what we've seen so far: they don't look like dwarves. Not a problem though, it could be just a bad picture.

that they'll reveal Thorin and Balin last as they seem to be made out to be the two most influencial dwarves in the group

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

Great as usual. One question *SPOILER ALERT* [In reply to] Can't Post


Quote
neither being able to imagine the fate which lies before them


Does that mean they' ll be killed as in the book?

Far over the misty mountains cold

To dungeons deep and caverns old

We must away ere break of day

To seek the pale enchanted gold.
