Prologue [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
I loved the Prologue with the coming of the dragon. It was visually spectacular. It gave us a glimpse of Erebor and Dale as they were at their height, beautiful, wealthy, full of activity and life, which delighted me. I did not think I would see a Middle Earth Dwarf Kingdom brought to life in the films, since we do not in the books, we just read about their past glory. As a reader I always regretted that, as I really like the Dwarves and wished for this.

I don't often think any movie can improve on any book, but I think the AUJ prologue is one area that was a big boost.

            I would argue that the connection between the Necromancer and Thorin's quest is already there, in the book (and Appendices). Otaku-sempai Send a private message to Otaku-sempai Jul 12 2013, 8:23pm
