Last night I watched “Snow White and the Huntsman.” What can I say, I liked the villain of the piece best of all–Charlize Theron as the mad evil Queen lusting after the heart of her stepdaughter to provide her with the immortal beauty and youth she craves. Snow White was OK, but I certainly am glad Bilbo beat her out for Best Hero. She just didn’t–inspire me. I wasn’t particularly rooting for her.
As for Snow’s dwarves, well, they were a rather crotchety, crafty bunch, played by a cast of familiar Brit character actors given human dwarf bodies through the magic of CGI. Good performances, but they just weren’t Bilbo’s dwarves. And not a Thorin amongst them to put inappropriate thoughts in a girl’s head. They didn’t have his romantic mane of hair, his noble profile, his soulful, beautiful eyes, his deafening roar, his majesty. *sigh*
So, as more and more folks get their TH DVDs, the continued thudding, squeeing, drooling and sighing over a certain vertically-challenged hottie takes place around the world. Wonder how many DVDs/Blu-rays have almost been paused and rewound and slo-moed to death already?
Did we ever think we’d feel this way about a sweaty, hairy, almost 200-year-old dwarf? No, we didn’t. But we DO.
I found a few GIFs on Twitter I thought I would also share with you. Oh, the joys of Thorin smiling!!
Someone suggested RA was doing his John the Baptist imitation here with his attire. Whoa–a bit wobbly, are we?? From PJ’s sneak peek of the second film.
Bilbo, that’s just what so many of us want to do–leap into Thorin’s strong arms! 😉
