Smaug: Chiefest and greatest calamity of our age Can't Post

According to Bofur. No other dwarf corrected him. Surely Durin's Bane, the Balrog who took Moria, would top a dragon? Erebor, great as the filmmakers may paint it, was after all just a shadow of the splendor of Moria. Is the line of Bofur just another script blunder, like the "ruled as if by divine right"? I get that it was added for dramatic effect but still, do we always need to be told the heroes will face the 'greatest' and 'chiefest' threat to make an interesting story? Do you think the line was acceptable?

I actually am quite ok with it, just a minor "well, yes, Bofur, but then there's the Balrog, and I know you don't know yet about the Witch-King, or the awakening of Sauron for that matter" moment for me :P I wish some other dwarf, or Gandalf, commented on it.

"The past tempts us, the present confuses us, and the future frightens us. And our lives slip away, moment by moment, lost in that terrible in-between."
