So am I (!) [In reply to] Can't Post

(Yes I actually had something posistive to say for once...) Pleased the general gist of the sentence is in (though of course I'd have preffered it to stay unchanged) and I'm glad Thorin dies asking for forgiveness (I've been really worried that Jackson and co would go all out to give him a 100% heroic death after reconcillating with Bilbo), I quite like the change from food and cheer to 'home' it's more approriate for the Quest of Erebor vibe the trilogy is going for.

As this is merely the first line of Thorin in this scene I wonder if they will reference the rest of the sentence? moving the following to the end of the exchange:


Quote

"Farewell Good thief" he said "I go now to the halls of waiting to sit beside my fathers until the world is renewed. Since I leave now all gold and silver, and go where it is of little worth, I wish to part in friendship..."

"..There is more in you of good than you know, chld of the kindly west..."

This is perhaps, talking purses (obviously) and Riddles in the dark excluded my fave scene in the book, though I always found the way it was phrased to be the wrong way round-the first sentence should have been at the end, IMO just reads a bit better.

Anyway...can we expect 'child of the kindly west' or the 'halls of waiting' to make it into the film? The average moviegoer won't get the reference to the halls, but it could be a good metaphor for death, whilst I'm fairly sure that child will be changed to hobbit (if the sentence makes it in) (Bilbo is hardly a child in relation to the much younger in the film Thorin) I see no reason why kindly west couldn't be used.

I'm rambling as usual, but any thoughts?

I don't have much to say.
