Doing it in real life [In reply to] Can't Post

"...not till now have I understood the tale of your people and their fall.
As wicked fools I scorned them, but I pity them at last.
For if this is indeed, as the Eldar say, the gift of the One to Men,
it is bitter to receive." -Arwen Undómiel

I think its simple [In reply to] Can't Post

physics is only applied when its not a spectacular shot. Dwarves in barrels with lids on is not spectacular. PJ is doing this for cinematic effect only. and we get to see Thorin being 'heroic' swinging his sword at something. maybe its a leaping salmon, whoosh and nice tasty sushi lunch.
