Troll scene [In reply to] Can't Post

It wasn't so much the laying down of arms that I found unbelievable, but the fact that Thorin and Co. allowed themselves to be stuffed into sacks and loaded up onto a giant spit, knowing full-well that they were likely going to be cooked and eaten. I was very much enjoying the changes to Roast Mutton up until that point. I can't buy that grumpy old Thorin would allow the Dwarves to sacrifice themselves and their entire quest just to save Bilbo, who they barely respected at that point (and whom Thorin seemed to lay the blame on for the whole incident). I didn't find myself dwelling on it, but I still found it to be unbelievable.

        I watch AUJ too much. It's like I'm addicted to it. I'd love to believe it's because it's a lush, visually dazzling, well acted and fully loaded romp through Middle Earth, and perhaps the film I had been waiting for since I was a kid.
