thorin and gandalfs relationship Can't Post

To me it seems like there is a lot of competition between the two, particularly on thorins behalf. Gandalf obviously cares and wants the best for thorin, nut thorin seems to be blind to that. A lot of the time it seems to me that thorin doesn't really care for Gandalf. Especially when he departs them. Thorin doesnt even say anything, nor acknowledge Gandalfs advice that he was giving. This got me thinking.

How would thorin react if Gandalf was in trouble? Say he was with him in dol guldur, would he stand by Gandalfs side against azog, or will he just go insane. Obviously he can do little against sauron. But what if he witnessed Gandalfs fall in kazad dum? Would he be as emotional as everyone else, or will his pride take over him?

Thoughts? I find this relationship in the film to be quite interesting.

I believe that Azog and Bolg are possibly the only two orcs who may be an exception to the typical evil nature of an orc. Azog had brought up his son, well enough that he actually acknowledges him as his own son. That is a first for any orc. And Bolg sets out to march upon Erebor in vengeance of his fathers death. How many orcs will Try and avenge another dead orc? Most will just forget about the dead one. This gives me hope that Orcs, have some traits of good in them, even if it is small aspects.
