Sad to say, I don't even remember Thorin's death scene from Battle of Five Armies film. That such a crucial scene was not memorable makes me downright grumpy.

I don't remember it either Halfy. I think peejers was more interested in that other thing, wotsitsname….Azog & slippery ice & any other CGI affects you can throw into the mix. Love interests have to die, tears to be shed ( yeah, in relief !!! ) Hero's are made, Leggy bumping off Bolg, My darling sweet'ums dying for his one true love Towel Rail, Towel Rail's little elfin heart breaking as shes got a kinky thing for fresh faced Dwarves, Everyone has to grab 10mins of screen time & lets push the main character death to the side lines, in fact pushed so far its out the door & into the parking space outside. Thorins death is meant to be higher in rank than Smaugs. Its to serve a purpose. But the Coven just had to go slushy because all the little 13 year old girls need a female role model & there just HAS to be romance,...…...everywhere......even the Witch King had a mother who loved him, why don't we have a sequel watching Kingy play hide N seek with mummy ? oh & he has to have a puppy that he loves so much & skiing lessons, & a playstation, cuz if Legolas can role play Tetris so can Kingy !!

Id like to know why any picture, shot or drawing is shown, to go with anything Tolkien, that it has to be from Peejers films ??

A lot of visuals available, but doing extra artwork that nonetheless pulls from PJ is just annoying.

{{Also the drawing of Tolkien, is it just me who when they look in his eyes get the impression he is only smiling that way because someone has a gun to his head! The mouth is smiling, the eyes are worried! }}

I hate the trend for article titles to be click bait that buries the lede. But that was a very good read.

Yeah, there was a lot of good detail in there, including some stuff I wasn't previously familiar with. Thanks for sharing the link, Malick! Thumbs Up
