Scottish Whimsy would that be the Last Samarai [In reply to] Can't Post

B C as a presence with the right script is very good at establishing himself quickly and gaining emotional commitment from the audience. A film I always enjoy is the Last Samarai and although his death occurs very early on when he dies you care. Equally by the time he arrives in Erebor we may be routing for him. We already know he has spurned Thorin on the quest. If he has a short but believeable dynamic story arc in TABA where he pursuades the Iron Hills to rise and fight it would be a clear and decisive entry into the patination of the movie without cluttering the story lines.

A point made on this thread by many is that non believing friends and family are finding the Hobbit much more enjoyable than LOTR because the story breaths better and is easier to engage with. I think Azog maybe there until the end and then Dain gets to do his stuff from the appendices. That would be a powerful ending to a three movie arc for Azog and establish Dain's heroic place in movie Dwarven history. If that is right how many other feud completions are we going to see. Beorn and Bolg who may interact earlier or do we lose Bolg in TDOS. The next 17 months are going to be fascinating.

I tried to save the shire , and it has been but not for me.
