disappointing [In reply to] Can't Post

Nori's reveal was bad enough, but seeing what they've come up with for Kili is heart-breaking. This is too far removed from what it should be. Look at side by side pictures of Kili next to Gimli ..... there is no connection whatsoever. They should at least look like they've come from the same universe. When things spin off into absurd story lines or unlikely characterizations, such as this, it's called jumping the shark.

Words really fail me, but 'sold out' come to mind. I can only hope that this is some twisted joke being played on us.

I thought if the female audience were gonna get some eye candy it would be from Bard, Thandruil, Lego etc I never thought hobbits or dwarves are the type of race you would drool over...was I wrong. Top marks to PJ and co for making something I thought wasnt possible....sexy dwarves.

That's probably right [In reply to] Can't Post

If they are portrayed as somewhat superficial and vain, it is likely that they shaved, not that they can't grow their beards any longer.

The strange thing is that Turner's natural beard in the production videos was much thicker than this!

Balin and Thorin [In reply to] Can't Post

yeah i agree, they are really going to have to make Balin and Thorin( especially Thorin) look fantastic becuase as you say they are both the most influencial of all the dwarves and probabaly the most well known...

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

I have been extremely happy with all of the Dwarves thus far. And like a lot of people on here, these are the first two that I am hesitant about. I agree about the almost-Elvish look. Which is quite unsettling, for a Dwarf. But again as most have already said, I do understand that these two are the youngest, and probably the "Wild Child" (or "Children", lol) of the group.

I do admire that they are making each of the Dwarves look decidedly different from each other. In my opinion, each of the Dwarves thus far has their own distinct "look", while still being fundamentally Dwarvish. Personally, while these two definitely look different, I feel like they lack the basic, necessary Dwarvish-ness. So yeah, all told, I'm not a huge fan of this. BUT, I trust PJ and the whole crew on this. If there personalities are at least handled appropriately, I'm sure everything will be fine.

SPOILERS BELOW!!!

On a side note, I do think that -- if handled well -- their deaths are going to be absolutely heartbreaking. If they are portrayed as the young, enthusiastic, new-to-the-world-of-adventure young'uns (which seems to be the case, going by the picture description), it will be crushing to see them die at the very end of this big adventure of theirs. I really hope this is done well. It can have a HUGE emotional impact if it's done right. And it bears repeating, I trust PJ to handle it well.

My feelings exactly, Estel... [In reply to] Can't Post

I can even get behind Nori's hairstyle. I'm even working with the "men in black" colors--no one in color except the dark burgundy. But this heart throb dwarf look really goes very contrary to how I've always imagined The Hobbit to be. I expect Richard Armitage's look will be similar. Too bad, because though I'd had initial doubts I was trying to let him convince me otherwise.

Yech! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm hoping the filmmakers overlook that little detail, if they decide to show any of the dwarves' family life. The idea of giving birth to a bearded baby gives me the jibbly wibblies.

Yeah,Im not fully convinced either,their look is clearly not going down too well with the majority of the TORN users,but i'm now actually give Weta the benfit of the doubt and hopefully it will work in the movies.... I'm really looking foward to what their going to do with Bombur though!

I've had a completely different reaction to each of the three photos. [In reply to] Can't Post

The first one, frankly, left me cold. Especially Nori's yellow brick road, we welcome you to Munchkinland, hair.

The second one, of Oin and Gloin, was thrilling. I loved everything about it.

This one isn't *quite* what I expected from dwarves, but as I've said elsewhere, as long as the character and the role is written right, I really don't care what they look like.

(And I freely admit, my X chromosomes are enjoying themselves very much right now. ROWR! Laugh)

Re: [In reply to] Can't Post

If anything gives me the jibbly wibblies it's the thought of a naked bearded dwarf woman (looking almost exactly like a male dwarf and probably sounding like one as well) on her back squeezing out a baby.

I can never erase that from my poor mind.
