That man has no business being that ridiculously good looking at that age.

They could have thrown him in Rivendell and it would have been accurate for the time period, even if unmentioned in the book.
#174 to #36 - John Cena (05/31/2013) [-]
The fact that he would have been ten years old does not matter at all?

Anon you can pretty much make anyone look like a teenager with today technology.

Neither was Legolas, Saruman, Pale Orc, Radagast,.

Still thought it was a ******* awesome film though.

Was Thranduil in the Hobbit? I don't remember reading it if he was or not, but if he was, then why not have his son there to hang out?

Thranduil was in the Hobbit.

Legolas was in the film?! Where? I never saw him.

Not yet. He's going to be in the next one.

Azog was in it, but his role was significantly smaller than it was in the film.
User avatar #145 to #142 - thewaronbeingcool (05/31/2013) [-]
Nah he was only mentioned in the backstory.

He was killed by Thorin before the story even started, and it was his son that menaced the dwarves.
#134 to #131 - klutzyspy (05/31/2013) [-]
umm.. yes saruman was there, implied in the very least, as the white counsil had to purge Sauron out of Dol Guldur
User avatar #138 to #134 - ultimoz (05/31/2013) [-]
I remember the white council being mentioned. Don't remember Saruman physically speaking though.
User avatar #144 to #138 - taurnil (05/31/2013) [-]
He was there, speaking to Gandalf in the council...

It's always easiest to ignore the rabble of the wilds, but it's also better to be safe than sorry.
User avatar #170 - ruebezahl (05/31/2013) [-]
I think it would have been great to give him a cameo as Aragorn, seeing how Aragorn was 10 years old at the time of the "Hobbit". That would have been a 100% certain win of the Academy Award for Makeup.

And yes, I am joking.
#206 to #170 - meagree (06/02/2013) [-]
As far as I know, Aragorn is actually of some special human breed and is 80+ in the LotR movies. He'd be young, but seeing as Frodo is 50+ in LotR, it wouldn't surprise me if Bilbo was around that age in The Hobbit. (111-50=61, 80-50=30)
#56 - John Cena (05/31/2013) [-]
I honestly won't have minded a cameo, I wouldn't even necessarily have had to say anything, just have a clear shot of him in Rivendell where he would have been at that time.

Seeing anything related to LotR reminds me that I have yet to learn how to speak Elvish fluently.. And let me tell you, it is soul-crushingly disappointing every time.
#147 to #129 - John Cena (05/31/2013) [-]
Despite being made by a linguist, I don't think it's complete enough to be spoken fluently. Sure you can write poetry in it, and maybe quote the movies, but I don't think there's enough to carry on conversations

Oh, many things about the movie rustle me

Why was Saruman in it?

Why did they make Thorin a racist prick of a large part of the movie? Oh, it's elven-made, nope, not going to use that sword

Where did that pale orc suddenly come from?

How did Thorin take a mace to the face and only get a tiny scratch on his nose? it's nonsense like this that happens when you stray from the original story for the sake of drama

You haven't read any of the books, have you?
User avatar #179 to #132 - ruebezahl (05/31/2013) [-]
Well, there's a general complaint also by people who have read the books as to why the dwarves don't just get the eagles to fly them all the way to the Lonely Mountain or why int he LOTR, they don't get an eagle to fly Frodo to Mordor.

If I am not completely mistaken, this was even addressed by Tolkien (if not in the books directly, then in some of his other writings), and the answer was basically: The eagles are not a focking taxi service! The instances in the books where they do carry people around are supposed to be extremely unusual and exceptional.
User avatar #197 to #179 - ultimoz (05/31/2013) [-]
Yeah, the eagles only hope gandalf when he is in dire need of it. Also in lord of the rings, another main reason as to why they wouldn't fly frodo and sam to mordor is that the rings power would get stronger and stronger, eventually possessing the eagles and killing the hobbits, they would take the ring for themselves and start the terrifying age of the feather.
User avatar #176 to #122 - alstorp (05/31/2013) [-]
Saruman actually was in the books...
User avatar #192 to #176 - europe (05/31/2013) [-]
Books? You can't be referring in plural to the Hobbit?

Yes, Saruman was mentioned in the Hobbit, but he did not make a physical appearance in it

Eitherway this argument has been settled already below.
User avatar #162 to #122 - fitemeirl (05/31/2013) [-]
because squeezing three full length movies out of one short 200page long children book is hard.
so they decided to add a lot of Tolkien's other work into the mix so it could fill the time without dragging on for ages.
User avatar #123 to #122 - pineapplechunkss ONLINE (05/31/2013) [-]
Thats hollywood for you
User avatar #164 to #122 - ruebezahl (05/31/2013) [-]
Saruman was in it, because he was the head of the White Council, and the White Council met roughly during that time frame to discuss the growing threat in Mirkwood.

When you read the Hobbit, it never bothered you how Gandalf just left the dwarves in the middle of the story without any explanation - just when things get REALLY dangerous? Showing the White Council in the movie explains why he will not stick with the dwarves in the second movie.

And that dwarvish "racism" is a part of Tolkien's writings. Dwarves don't trust the elves, elves don't trust the dwarves. That's why the friendship between Legolas and Gimli is so significant.

The pale Orc is an addition, but it doesn't bother me much. In the book, they have trouble with the goblins. In the movie, they chose to develop one "hero goblin" as their leader. Makes the whole thing more interesting as opposed to having a faceless bunch of goblins who just keep appearing every now and then.
User avatar #175 to #164 - europe (05/31/2013) [-]
Yes, but seeing how Gandalf had many, many responsibilities, I didn't think too much of it.
#169 to #122 - John Cena (05/31/2013) [-]
Some background info, Dwarves hate Elves. Nothing personal, its just they hate each other and distrust each other. Especially since the Elves refused to help the dwarves against the orcs and Smaug.
User avatar #126 to #122 - sstony (05/31/2013) [-]
I understand your points, but I also understand what the writers were doing in the movie.

Having read a lot of the rest of Tolkien's writing, I can tell you that everything I saw in the movie happened in his other books, they were just not mentioned in the hobbit by itself, because the hobbit was written as a bedtime story when Tolkien's son was just a boy.
User avatar #153 to #126 - lcarnage (05/31/2013) [-]
And good god was it one hell of a bedtime story. I remember listening to the audiotapes of The Hobbit every night as a kid! I pictured the scene of the trolls better in my mind than it was conveyed at the cinema
#135 to #126 - klutzyspy (05/31/2013) [-]
pale orc and throin fought, but the pale orc didnt survive in the book. It was later his son who took up the hate towards the dwarfes
User avatar #12 - traelos (05/30/2013) [-]
They could have had him make a cameo appearance.

Little did Bilbo know he had actually met Aragorn in a tavern at Laketown for some reason or another. Bilbo's new found sense of adventure inspired Aragorn to abandon his royal life and set out as Strider.

It would have been silly but still.

You confuse me, FJ. The Vader thing is the exact same like traelos' suggestion, yet the thumb difference is immense. Why?

You just reminded me of the foreign "irony" guy on Family Guy lol "Ooooo haha it is funny because it is true Oooo hahaha ooooo"
#42 to #41 - gfhg (05/31/2013) [-]
Because he was mocking traelos for such a suggestion.
User avatar #52 to #42 - traelos (05/31/2013) [-]
By making a suggestion, that actually happened.

And I said mine was silly.
