  1. Thorin was there right until the very end! Not sure why that pleases me, but I’m grinning as I sit here on my 7:12am morning train reading this.


  2. I am sad. It is like graduating High School . Never again will all the people be in the same spot at the same time.


  3. Sad in a way, but I can’t wait to see the movies. So many new faces to keep tabs on now to see what their in also.


  4. As a rabid RA fan, I want the films to be Thorin centric. I have no shame. Bilbo who?


  5. We also have a pic of that last take: Thorin vs. Azog. I’m so glad RA was on set until the very last moment, I feel this is significant for him. And I agree the film created a different Thorin from the book, a much more interesting character indeed. Being the soul of the story while Bilbo is the heart, we assist at “their” story, their friendship building, their estrangement. It’s a story inside the main story. Of course I must see the next 2 movies, but I feel like PJ (and RA) did a wonderful work in creating this subplot. They added meat to a thin book, producing (for AUJ at least) a magnificent tapestry of adventures and human (well… hobbit/dwarf/elf) feelings we can really recognize ourselves in. I only know that at the end of AUJ I was crying with joy and hope, even knowing what would have happened next. And I guarantee you that making me feel hope and joy is a desperate challenge. They succeded. For this I will always be grateful to PJ and RA. As I told before, The Hobbit and RA saved my mental health last January for a number of reasons. Thank you guys, I’ll never forget.
