so i've avoided every full reviews and spoilers out here. and finally i got to watch the film. but we've all seen promotional posters and pictures long before. and hmmm yeah 'we' still think kili lacks the dwarfishness feel that the rest have; guess he is the pretty-face-legolas with thorin [apart from bard] as the aragorn in this fellowship of dwarves. one could reminisce with them moments as when aragorn summons legolas to 'take down the troooll!' or that sort. in the films that is-
and aww no talking lord of the eagles/gwaihir or whatever haha. except for the loud chirps and screeches. not a single word is uttered by the great eagles. or even just thaat quick specified connection with gandalf or to thorin and the gang. i kind of waited for it. but somehow that was already expected as well and i think, is rather practical.
the famous 'riddles in the dark' part is really well played out. gollum was never as adorably disorienting as before haha
and i really enjoyed all the chasing and running scenes. seeing it all just like how it was written; lotsa running-
i do support the added drama and tension annd the characters that are not originally part, or as prominent in the book. i mean that pale orc azog's simple but delicious design got me all giggling. the interesting introduction of the morgul blade made me maniacally whisper its name again; 'mooorgul blaade' lol.
and radagast ofcourse is simply the best bits of fun in it. despite what others think. he's just as great and serious as he is cool in his own odd ways imo. and i never thought he'd be that awesome in action-
i was caught off-guard when the screen suddenly cut to the credits. it felt so short even. no doubt it's an amazing movie. and once is not enough.
so now i must watch it again :]
