Tauriel Hobbit

17, Sydney

Date Posted: 2014-01-09
Tolkien Fan Level: 9
Film Format Seen? Imax 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes

I went to see DoS with my boyfriend, and both he and I are huge Tolkien fans. As soon as the music started to play i was taken into Middle Earth.

One of the things that kind of irked me was the fact that some of the dwarves were not able to enter the mountain due to Kili's wound, or being late etc.

The scene that really interested me was when Tauriel and Legolas were talking to each other near lake town. I was annoyed with the fact that they only spoke little Sindarin as there was no other being with them. Im sure that it was probably due to the fact that it would have been hard to learn and having a long scene like that entirely in Sindarin would make the audience bored.

I remember when we first heard about Tauriel being in the films, some people absolutely loved her (like me) but a lot of people despised her for being in the movie. Now there are a lot of people have changed their minds about her and have suddenly started saying that they always liked her, even if they were one of the people who did not want her to be in it. Either way its good that she is receiving more positive feedback from fans.
