My friend just texted me saying she was so excited for Fili and Kili’s scenes in the next Hobbit movie
She hasn’t read the books.
I don’t have the heart to say anything to her…
I’m such a. Bad friend.
I like the original LOTR trilogy better than the Hobbit trilogy.
Not because of the actors,
Or the music,
Or the scriptwriting.
But because of the filming technique.
The LOTR trilogy is a lot more natural compared to the Hobbit. The amount of cgi used in it actually hurts my eyes and makes me sick.
I can see how the innovation in the hobbit in terms of pushing films into the future helps the film industry.
But sometimes there is a thing such a s TOO MUCH CGI!
So I’ve done the math to try and figure out how old Kili and Fili were in human years when they died. They talk in the books about how young the were, but it is a little hard to grasp when everything is in Dwarf years.
In Dwarf years, Fili was 82 and Kili 77. Now if you take the average age of Dwarf when they die (340) and divide it by the average age of human (80) you get 4.25. Now divide 82 by 4.25 and 77 by 4.25 and you get their ages.
Fili was 19 when he died. Kili was 18.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey | Misty Mountains
Misty Mountains — Richard Armitage and The Dwarf Cast
Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day
To find our long-forgotten gold
The pines were roaring on the height
The winds were moaning in the night
The fire was red, it flaming spread
The trees like torches blazed with light
