***UPDATED GEEKY OBSERVATIONS LIST*** And a call for more obs :) Can't Post

Greetings All!

Here's our latest update on the Geeky Observations List -- draft #4!! Again, I beg that you look it over and help me with additions, corrections, or deletions. This is OUR list; I'm just the steward ;)

All of the new items have ** these 2 asterisks at the front of each line... or they're at the front of previous obs I combined with similar observations (basically duplications) or observations that were heavily edited.

I wanted to let you know that many observations that are not on this list will be showing up on our Tidbits Geeky List (in progress). If you check out the LotR Lists, you see there are quite a variety of Lists to come. For instance, I've moved the ob about Thorin's receding hairline into the Tidbits List. My criteria for items like this are checking to see if there are several pieces or discussion that make up the observation. Then it's more of an interesting Tidbit (still a valid Geeky Observation), but a bit more involved than what shows up on this primary list.

And a reminder for Geeky Observations to share, I don't do negative, nitpicks, continuity errors... stuff like that. With all of the work and splendidosity in this film, I just can't do it. Those are for someone else to collect :) Sorry... but there you are.

So... Are you still spotting things? BRING 'EM ON! I've only had time to watch up to them checking out the Troll's Hoard, so I'm hoping to add more soon. For now, here's more that I saw:

1. Thranduil' nods his head slightly to the right when acknowledging Thrór on his throne and again after the attack on Erebor when acknowledging Thorin as he turns his Army and leaves.
2. Gandalf is humming when he walks away from Bilbo's door.
3. Bag End is lit up as Bilbo cooks dinner, including the front porch lantern over the door. Expecting company?
4. Dori shows great etiquette when serving Gandalf. Not a common Dwarf trait? (Thinks of Dwalin-fish/Kili-boots)
5. Dori and Ori (Nori?) are the most polite or well-bred of the Dwarven Company.
6. Whenever Bifur speaks Khuzdul, the others understand but respond in the Common Tongue
7. Thorin and Bifur are the only ones that speak Khuzdul.
8. Bilbo doesn't take the contract. Thorin shoves it at him until he takes it.
9. Bilbo's book is left sitting on the arm of his chair where he left it.
10. When the Dwarves are singing, Bofur sits on the arm of Bilbo's chair and is the only one not standing during the song.
11. There are heavy curtains pulled aside in Bilbo's bedroom that would cover the window and wall.
12. The bedroom window is slightly open in Bilbo's bedroom.
13. (added last sentence to existing ob) Bilbo never did get into bed properly. When he wakes in the morning, it's apparent he had just tipped over across the foot of the bed where he listened to the Dwarves sing. Sometime during the night he dropped his suspenders.
14. The entire house is cleaned up and doesn't show any sign that the Dwarves and Gandalf had been there, except for the contract sitting on the footstool where Bilbo left it.
15. Thorin trusts Gandalf in Bag End about Bilbo, the map and the key; but he is beginning not to trust him as they argue at the Farmer's broken homestead.



3rd draft of TH:AUJ Geeky Observation List - updated for DVD release!!!
