Concerning Dwarves Can't Post

So I've read several reviews now, and I'm loving all the positive hype for AUJ, but one thing I noticed is that every reviewer mentions that the dwarves sort of blend together, and then mentions which ones they thought stood out.

However, I also noticed that each one mentions different dwarves. While everyone unilaterally praises Thorin, it seems every reviewer noticed other secondary dwarves.

One reviewer mentioned Ori, Dori, and Balin, another mentioned Fili, Kili, and Dwalin, and another still mentioned Bofur, Bombur, and Bifur.

I think its not that the dwarves don't have time to shine, its just the fact that there are 13 new characters with rhyming names that has confused casual film-goers.

I think that us here at TORN since we are familiar with the character designs and some of the personalities will be able to easily identify the dwarves, and notice their little character traits.

Well again, I haven't seen the movie yet so it's all speculation really, but that's just my opinion on the dwarf issue.

I'd like to get everyone else's take on this, is it simply character overload for casual fans, or will the dwarves each be given their time to shine in the sequels?
