What's With the Attitude, Gandy? And Other Quirky Observations Can't Post

"He is here," says Gandalf in Bag End after three loud thumps on Bilbo's front door. Thorin is about to smolder his way into the premises, but his Grayness seems to utter those 3 little words with outright displeasure. I know the two characters aren't supposed to be chums but since Gandalf pretty much orchestrated the whole Erebor/dragon snuffing endeavor, that line reading just puzzles me. And how exactly did Gandalf expect a passle of dwarfs and one hobbit to destroy one of the most badass dragons ever? Anyone?

Observation deux - leaping to the end of the movie where Azog & co. tree the company. Our CGI villain makes a crack about Thorin's grampa reeking of fear. I thought he did this to taunt Thorin, but then what language was he speaking? How could Thorin have understood him? Or is the dwarf prince also multilingual like the wizard and this is why Gandalf becomes grumpy when his rival finally arrives at the party?

Finally, our company becomes a dwarf pileup several times in the movie and every time, Bombur winds up on top (excepting of course when it's the Goblin King's turn). Theory: the trolls' whole idea of squashing the dwarfs into jelly would never have worked because these blokes are as tough as jerky and therefore unsquishable.

Just my random impressions available for semi-serious discussion and debate : )

    I didn't note any attitude there. He seemed more proclaimative than displeased. However, AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Mar 21 2013, 3:46am
