Bilbo and smaug i guess [In reply to] Can't Post

Mirkwood and Laketown situations did happen in the book. Im not sure about the lines....

I do wonder about all of that elf action, and Legolas doing another one of his famous stunts...

But like jackson said : DOS, some of it that is significantly different from the book, which is GOOD.


I liked Thranduil. Seemed like the most significant aspect of the book that was accurately portrayed.

There wasn't that much dialog to work with. [In reply to] Can't Post

It was a lot of talking about talking in the Laketown scenes. I think there is a lot of latitude there for added dialog, as opposed to the scenes with the elves, where there is a good bit more. I particularly hope they use a lot of the dialog with Thranduil and Thorin, when Thorin keeps talking about being hungry.

As for Legolas stunts, what was he doing in that scene in front of a green screen, where he was standing on two boards that were being moved all around by stagehands?

What, you don't remember [In reply to] Can't Post

on page 219 (in my paperback edition, which is p. 223 in my 1st edition Annotated Hobbit, or p. 225 in my 2nd ed. Annotated version), when Tauriel leaps out at the pack of Orcs that've been pursuing the Company for ages, and starts kicking some serious orc-butt? And when (pages 252, 256, and 258 respectively) Thorin first tells Bard who he is, and Bard looks at him in wonder and says, "Inconceivable!"

Sheesh. Next thing you'll be telling us Smaug looks just like Pete's Dragon.

My original guess was that Bard would become the captain of the guards who first questioned the company at the bridge into Lake-town. Even if this is the case then his introduction is being done much differently than the way that Tolkien told it.

There is certainly nothing wrong with putting names and faces to the Elves that captured the company in Mirkwood, even if one of those faces belongs to Legolas.

Master of Laketown [In reply to] Can't Post

Spoiler for those who haven't read the book.

This scene is different in the book - no one wakes him, he's at the feast, where Thorin and Co arrive. But I must admit, cinematically these scenes looked pretty nice. Also the boat with the dwarves - well it was basically like that in the book. Well, the weather and time of the year...In video we've seen some snow. According to book there was no snow, but I like the way it looks on the screen. Durin's day, the day, when Erebor's door keyhole appeared, was "the first day of the last moon of Autumn on the threshold of Winter". So it's absolutely fine to have some snow.
