Not saying I dislike RA [In reply to] Can't Post

I thought IM was brilliant in Deadwood and Sexy Beast and would have been a great Thorin. The only down side was his age and making the physical requirements of the role very challenging. And you guys are correct we don't know what GDT would have done with the films.

However, it was PJs decision to go from 2 to 3 films. Now perhaps GDT would have done so as well, but we don't know that either. Based on the original plan for 2 films with GDT, I am saying that it would have most likely stayed that way and made for a more concisely done 2 films as opposed to 3 with the non canon filler (ie Azog subplot) material to stretch them to the current 3 films. Thats really my only gripe about them. hey GDT may well have screwed the pooch or blown us away ... we'll never know for sure, but for me AUJ had some really great moments yet was kinda unsatisfying ... like lembas vs cram.
