I have a feeling that Thorin would have no patience for Ikea. He'd give it like ten minutes effort, then scream something along the lines of 'ELVEN TREACHERY' and fly into a berserker rage and smash it all to kindling.

Implying it wasn't kindling already.

I don't really like the depiction of Thorin in the movie. In the book, he was only a tiny douche. In the movie, he is a massive one.

A-freaking-men. When he laid eyes upon Orcrist and found out that it was an elven blade, he wanted to reject it just because it was made by elves. If I remember correctly Thorin doesn't have any problems with elves as a race, just the elves of Mirkwood.

I don't think the films have ever made that distinction to be honest, it was more like :-Here's Rivendell, there's elves here.
Here's Lorien, there's some more elves here.
Oh look some elves have shown up to help us defeat Saruman
These elves never show up when you need them do they? at least they sent a sword
The Moose riding bastard doesn't like Thorin, even after his grandad showed him his pretty gem.

Ah, so many things wrong with the Hobbit. While the Lord of the Rings consists of about 1336 pages, the hobbit only consists of 350 or so. I guess it isn't hard to create three movies out of such a small book if you simply add a ton of stuff that wasn't in the book at all.
User avatar #25 to #22 - squadmissile (04/18/2013) [-]
It makes sense though, there's no way that you could fit the whole book into just one movie, it gives them a chance to act out every little detail and add a few extras.
But in a way i'm sort of glad they didn't do that to the lord of the rings because then we don't have to put up with Tom ******* Bombadil.
User avatar #28 to #25 - europe (04/18/2013) [-]
I guess that Tom was a really odd character, but I do believe that it could've been pulled off to have him in the movie without having it crash and burn. A really important part there is that the hobbits get lost and get imprisoned in a Wight's BDSM dungeon where Pippin finds a blade forged by Westernesse, that he used to pierce the knee of the Wraith King, after which Eowyn stabs him in the face, which would've been alot better to watch than just having Eowyn take off her helmet, stating that she's in fact not a man and just stabbing the Wraith in the face without having it even try as much as dodge.
User avatar #31 to #28 - squadmissile (04/18/2013) [-]
Yeah that would have been better, or at least get Galadriel to give it to him. I haven't got much against Tom as a Character it's just reading the book it just completely broke up the story for me to the point where i was thinking "Is this chapter still ******* going on"
But like you said, if they had made say 4 movies instead of 3 then stuff like that would have been included, like Sarumans actual death, or giving the elves something to do, because apparently in the Return of the king they just sat on their arses thinking that this war malarkey is a bit unfortunate

and bilbo is kinda odd too...in the movie he is portrayed as a hero,and everybody loves him

in the books..he was more of a poor sod out of place...and golum was portrayed in bad light too..he almost literally screamed "pity me" throught out all of his You need to login to view this link would be much better if they made him look like he was more of a disgusting creature and then blam the sad face on the screen when the ring was stolen...would have been much better
User avatar #10 to #3 - namnori (04/18/2013) [-]
Yeah, he's a douche... But I love him!
When he almost died I stopped breathing for a few seconds. I think I'm in love.

same with faramir though, he's a complete dick in the two towers film

The characters in the book were so black and white in that they were either very good or very bad. I think Peter Jackson had the right idea when he created a few grey areas otherwise it would have been far too much like a fairy tale where you find yourself easily hating the bad guys and unconditionally loving the good guys.

I love LoTR, but this was one of my biggest issues with Tolkien. The characters are either superduper good or superduper evil. He used archetypes in a great way, hell, he defined a few of them, but all the For The Evulz characters kind of messed it up. The orcs, for instance. They're there and they're evil. Perfect when you need a villain group that can die in massive numbers, but still boring.

Now guys, I have a question to you all who've watched the new hobbit movie:
My brother is flipping tables over how they made it seem like Gandalf understood or knew there were trouble about when Bilbo drops the ring into his pocket, as if Gandalf knows it's there.
He's flipping the tables because apparently it's completely out of order according to the book, because supposedly Gandalf doesn't know **** or even notices it.
I've read the book too, but my memory is dim of it.
So thoughts? do you agree with my brother? Or is it just far more likely Gandalf is winking at him and looking in his direction when he slips the ring into his pocket because he's saying "Good job, Bilbo, you've become one of them" and not that he has any slight idea of what fell into his pocket.
Or maybe he just saw something slip and is like "Hmm.. waz dat.. " and then he's like "k."
TL:DR: My brother is flipping tables about Gandalf seeming suspicious in the hobbit movie when he didn't in the book, agree or not?

In the book it implies that Gandalf knows that a Bilbo used a ring to get out of the goblin caves. Uses a line like "your story has a ring of truth. its ring true." But he does not know its the One ring.
User avatar #51 to #43 - demandsgayversion (04/18/2013) [-]
He gave him a sly look of "oooh, you tricky devil, you has a thing". Don't overreact to that.
#56 to #51 - kettz ONLINE (04/18/2013) [-]
Yeah that's what I've tried to tell him, but he insists that it implies he knows something's up! No idea why it can't be as simple as that! but each to their own and it's what my brother thinks.

Thank ye all who responded, not that I can do anything with it since my brother is stubborn as a mule and gets pretty pissed if we try to correct him on such matters, nonetheless thank you, I am no longer living in the shadows of my brothers ignorance.. kinda!

If you read the biggining of the lord of the ring everything is explained. Gandalf is well aware of the ring. In fact for the entire period between the hobbit and the lord of the rings Gandalf is doing his research about the ring. He would later put all the clues together and to determine this is the one ring to rule them all. Also when tolken wrote the hobbit he had no vision for the lord of the rings yet. Was a sequel in mind? Probably, in the book the hobbit he also mentions gandalf chasing off the necromancer with his wizard budies so it is possible that was a vision for a sequel...the return of the necromancer. Anyway, in the hobbit the ring was no more then a ring that turned people invisible that a wierd creature named golum had (in the original version of the hobbit Tolkien didn't describe gollum's features so he was more monster then hobbit like. So nothing special was hinted about the ring and Gandalf dosnt say anything foreboding about it either. The reason why your brother is having problems is because of peter jackon made the movie aware that it was a prequel. THe only reason he added some scenes were to reference the lord of the rings. So what your brother is flipping so much tables about is no more then peter jackson rewriting a few scenes to the equivalant of the movie turning to you, winking and whispering "psssst...hey...you know that the ring from the other movies the right? That ring caused some crazy **** remember? And look at these stupid dwarves...they have no idea that that is the one ring to rule them all."

My memory is dim also but if I remember correctly Gandalf is a bit suspicious in the books also.
