Nice Dwarfs! Can't Post

Unfortunately they're not those in The Hobbit Unsure. I got a blu-ray of Snow White and the Huntsman from Netflix this week and took it over to watch at some friends house last night. I had previously only seen a bad composite picture that really didn't do them any justice at all, so when the dwarfs first made their appearance in the movie I just said to my friends, "Wow, now those are some real dwarfs. Why couldn't they have just done something like these for The Hobbit?". They look like actual dwarfs to me and are far, far better than the goofy designs PJ came up with. Even without long beards they looked more like proper Hobbit dwarfs than any of the bizarre, funky, mish-mashed collection of non-dwarfs from Peter. Given some more middle earth centric costuming and some nice ME dwarven type beards this kind of implementation would have been great. It's too bad. Here's a short video about them in the movie that I found this morning:

        Certainly, it's probably for the best if our dwarves don't all look too similar. Macfeast Send a private message to Macfeast Oct 14 2012, 1:43am
