Beorn torture Can't Post

Was this brought out in the film and was his enmity for the orcs explained at all?

I was wondering about that as it was mentioned early on, [In reply to] Can't Post

my guess is that it is an EE feature.

No and yes [In reply to] Can't Post

The torture scene / flashback wasn't seen at all; hopefully it will be saved for the EE. Beorn does, however, say that the orcs hunted his kind for sport (i.e. bear-baiting) and that he is the last of his kind.

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.

About the only reference to it [In reply to] Can't Post

is Beorn mentioning that the rest of his kind have been killed and Bilbo noticing an old manacle (with a bit of chain still attached) on Beorn's wrist. Kinda relieved that that's all there was, really. I don't know that I'd have the stomach for a full-out torture scene.

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."
