Dwarves and personalities Can't Post

So, just a thought for ya all:

What do you like the best about the dwarves' personalities? Are there any particular traits that make you like some dwarves more than others?

I know in the first film that not all of the dwarves got treated equally in terms of characterization, mainly because PJ&co wanted the audience to get to know the dwarves as Bilbo got to know them, but if you watch closely there are many many times where the dwarves expand on their personalities through subtle and non verbal cues, especially in Bag End at the Unexpected Party.

I am just curious as to what the thoughts are, because I can definitely tell after 18 viewings that there was a ton of time spent by the wonderful actors in using every means they had to try and bring these characters to life, and I applaud each and every one of them Smile

I almost feel as though I know the company, and it isn't even DOS yet!

This next year will be a long wait methinks Wink
