Brilliant! [In reply to] Can't Post

The solution was lying in plain sight the entire time!

"After all, I believe that legends and myths are largely made of 'truth', and indeed present aspects of it that can only be received in this mode; and long ago certain truths and modes of this kind were discovered and must always reappear." Professor Tolkien, 1951

Tauriel [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree her death makes the most sense to be honest. I don't mind her addition and think she will be used like Lurtz.

Its a good idea right? lol [In reply to] Can't Post

It keeps purists happy, it keeps fans of Radagast happy, it allows Radagast to have a story much more similar to what he had in the book, not many are fans of Tauriel (the idea of Tauriel).

Though i dont see the need for any to die personally. I didnt feel the lack of someone dying at this point in the book when i read it and i dont think that will change when watching the films.

I hate to be a wet blanket [In reply to] Can't Post

but it's already been done; would they simply do a repeat of Haldir?

On the plus side, maybe we can get Tauriel versions of the fake-Legolas-spoiler T-shirt they made for LOTR which said: "If you haven't read the book you should know.......The Pretty Elf-Man Dies!"

Can't hurt [In reply to] Can't Post

Killing her off properly allows fans to get a death (which there will be enough) but also allow purists as you say to be happy.

They can't kill off the only female character! [In reply to] Can't Post

Otherwise, why make all the fuss of including her in the first place.Wink

It might be nice if Peter sticks to Tolkien's outline on this. [In reply to] Can't Post

Stick to your zombie movies if all you want is body count.

I expect we will get to know someone in Lake Town [In reply to] Can't Post

That is the person who will bite it at TDoS. I doubt it is a dwarf or Tauriel.

That's why i think they should [In reply to] Can't Post

To me that would be funny, all this fuss over needing a new female character (we dont) and how she is so great at everything, and then puff...dead.

As for it being the same as Haldir - there is loads of parts we are assuming are the same - prologue, shire, misty mountains, etc etc.

It wont happen but i think it would cause less problems for them than if they killed off Oin for example, plus i would find it funny, haha.

The death of [In reply to] Can't Post

Thorin, Fili and Kili would have less impact though, if they all drop like flies.

But to be honest, I only really care about Thorin. Kill off Fili and Kili in the Shire I say! Evil
