I’m reading The Fellowship Of The Ring horribly slowly, still 4.5 more chapters to go, but as time passes I come to appreciate it more and more.
The formula for a successful transition of power in critical times after a loss of the leader a) wake the group from their shock by announcing your leadership, 2) give homage to the fallen leader, 3) shout your first command. Works all the time ;)
is baaack! it’s like meeting an old friend with these Hobbit movies, and it
makes sense, he’s the son of the Elvin King, although Tolkien did not mention
him in the book it’s likely that he fought in the battle of five armies. Legolas
has always been one of my favorite characters on the previous trilogy, his
skill in bow and arrow is tremendous and has always been a loyal friend and the
best companion in battle.
Yes! and you were the best in business :D
- More dwarves even women. That I love.
- The escape through the river in barrels may prove a little trickier than that in the book, swords and axes will be used, Nooo your kidding right?
- A new character on Legolas’ side, she’s obviously another elf but she looks really interesting. There’s a serious lack of women characters in the Hobbit book.
- They will be showing the war of the order of wizards against the necromancer, it’s a great subplot that Tolkien left untold, smart move by movie makers, Saruman is cool on the good side and I already love Radagast. Middle-Earth wizards in action? this I Gotta see.
- Apparently they will never make poor Bilbo leave Middle-Earth not being
seen by deer old Smaug (because he didn’t see him in the book) or this is what they're selling, anyway I knew it. But
what bothered me a little –ok a lot- was the actual lack of Bilbo himself in
the trailer, Not Cool >:<
- And why there’s this mysterious buzz in the air that it is Thorin who will slay the dragon? Even better :D
