Great thoughts and observations, Loresilme. [In reply to] Can't Post

I love how there's so much more to pick up with this movie with every subsequent viewing.

Insightful observations. I too think EL's done a fantastic job with Tauriel, and I am quite attached to her already. I agree that she's quite complex, and that there's clearly a lot going on between her and Legolas. Thinking back to some of the more "minor" characters (or, for that matter, even the main characters, save Aragorn) in, say, TTT, I don't think there was a single one who seemed complex enough that I wanted to dissect every look, posture, line, or eyebrow-raise for clues to their inner motivations and feelings. Eomer? Eowyn? Grima? Théoden? Saruman? Who am I forgetting? Nope, not a one. Excellent performances there, don't get me wrong, but not with a captivating complexity like we're getting here -- from Tauriel, Thranduil, Bilbo, the always-majestic Thorin (especially Thorin), and, heck, even Smaug. Yep, I love this movie.

I'm surprised there hasn't been more discussion of Legolas' line to Tauriel that she knew he'd come for her, and the warm smile she gives him when he says that. To me, this is such clear evidence that they have some kind of close bond -- especially when coupled with the conversation she'd just had with Thranduil. I just don't see how anyone could take her pursuit of the Orcs all the way to Laketown as a romantic pursuit of Kili. She may be interested in trying to help the Dwarves, and Kili in particular, but I see no reason to think that interest has any romantic inclinations to it.
