Gimli-Gloin Parallel Can't Post

I noticed this little bit earlier

*Elrond speaks in Elvish*

Glóin: What is he saying? Does he offer us insult?

Gandalf: No, master Glóin. He is offering you food.

Glóin: Ah, well. In that case, lead on.


*Haldir speaks in elvish*

Gimli: So much for the legendary courtesy of the Elves! Speak words we can also understand!

Haldir: We have not had dealings with the Dwarves since the Dark Days.

Gimli: And you know what this Dwarf says to that? Ishkhaqwi ai durugnul!

Aragorn: That was not so courteous.

Doesn't mean anything just a nice little thing between father & son

those red headed Dwarves [In reply to] Can't Post

Clearly Gloin is following in the footsteps of his son (since the films have been made backwards)...

Scary how similar they look! Saw in the Hobbit Chronicles book (art and design from the first film), that Alan Lee had drawn the pics for the locket Gloin is carrying (pics of his wife and son, Gimli, of course). Alan Lee did the Gimli pic based on what John Rhys Davies looked like as a kid...

I'm also quite fond of Oin's design.

Go outside and play...
