For Kili [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd say I'm on the pro-Kili side here. I am very aware of the estrogen-pumping aspect of the character as my 17-year old daughter makes little squeeling noises when I mention him; but the death of Fili and Kili as they protect their mother's brother with their own bodies is perhaps the most epic part of the whole story, when the child's tale that the Hobbit really was makes a nod to Tolkien's professional subject matter like Maldon and Beowulf; and the epic subject matter that was already the background to the story. I suspect that PJ's greatest artistic challenge will be to get their end in the battle of Five Armies perfectly done. It will be the conclusion of the story, like when the Ring went down Mount Doom. Kili, as the youngest and most inexperienced dwarf, is the character that carries us toward that conclusion in a way that even Bilbo doesn't.

                    It's hard to draw conclusions after only one movie. entmaiden Send a private message to entmaiden Jan 1 2013, 4:33am
                    Used to think movie would have fewer dwarves Kimtc Send a private message to Kimtc Jan 1 2013, 4:36am
                    I didn't suggest giving all the dwarves equal time, sauget.diblosio Send a private message to sauget.diblosio Jan 1 2013, 4:46am
