Peter Jackson's, definately... [In reply to] Can't Post

since I don't remember getting all emotional when I read about Thorin's death in the original novel. I might have been a bit concerned, but it won't be the same emotional response I'll have during viewing the same scene in the movie version (perhaps I should take a whole box of tissues instead of a couple of travel packs like I was originally planning).

I think what PJ and company have done with the movie version is show us why Thorin is the way that he is, and in this way we can relate to him more than we could in the book. The only downside to this is that every time we re-read The Hobbit, the same scene will trigger the same emotional response because most of us will be picturing the movie version other than the version we had in our mind when we first read the book.Smile
