Amusingly the breath didn't kill me.
It took me to zero.
My @ died by poison.

Nain's mattock was notable because he swung and missed with it and that allowed Azog to kill him. Dain's axe was mentioned, IIRC.

Yes indeed! The LOTR films took some liberties - why on earth did he have the Rivendell elves turning up at Helms Deep?? - but The Hobbit films took it to a whole new level.

An average game of Angband put to screen would probably be more faithful to the story line, even back in the days of Tiamat, Kronos and Azriel!

The best part of the Hobbit trilogy is the Budweiser horses at Beorn's house. It looks like its a commercial break starting.
