"Factual" error? Can't Post

Love the films and all but why, oh why, doesn't PJ have a "fact"-checker on staff? For someone SO steeped in Tolkien lore and with getting SO much right, why does he keep making at least one glaring mistake in every movie? In TTT, it was Legolas and his "the Uruks turn Northeast. They're taking the hobbits to Isengard". GAH! I roll my eyes every time. Of course, only an avid book reader (and map studier) will know that Isengard is NOT northeast of where they are.
Now, in the Hobbit: AUJ, it seems he has done it again. Please tell me if I am wrong. I have seen it now 3 times. I am speaking of the Great Goblin scene when he instructs his underlings to start torturing them "starting with the youngest" They shoot to ORI?! Isn't Kili the youngest dwarf? I am rereading the Hobbit right now and can't recall exactly if ages are mentioned at all but then I may have just breezed right by that bit of info. Am I wrong?
