Hot Dwarves (Who knew?)

I was 14 years old the first time I read THE HOBBIT. In my mind, dwarves were short, stocky, hairy, full of grumbles, sometimes funny, and indisputably unattractive.

The idea of a dwarf being "hot" wasn't ludicrous, it simply could not exist in my tiny little brain.

Had someone tried to put the idea there, my head would have probably popped off.
When Peter Jackson put THE LORD OF THE RINGS on film, there, on the screen, were the dwarves of my childhood. They were short, stocky, hairy, funny and still pretty unattractive. Though, not in a bad way, they were dwarves, they couldn't help it.
Now it is 2012, and THE HOBBIT is coming to a theatre near you next Christmas. As you may already know, THE HOBBIT is filled to the brim with dwarves.

Most of the travelling party is made up of what I consider common, ordinary, deep-in-the-earth dwarves.

They come in various shapes and sizes, but they are all stocky and hairy.
However, this time, they are also distinct. Not cookie-cutter dwarves, but individuals with personalities.

Their faces, if not exactly attractive, are interesting and pleasing.

Good thing, too, since THE HOBBIT will be shown in two parts--two full length (probably over 2 hours each) movies.
That's a lot of screen time void of eye candy.

Not to worry.

Luckily there are three dwarves, royalty as it were, who do not fit the preconceived dwarven mold.

If you've stayed with me this far, you are in for a real treat.

Warning: Hot dwarves ahead.
Thorin Oakenshield is a dwarf king in exile. 

With him, travel his two nephews, Kili and Fili.

Suddenly the term "hot dwarves" makes complete sense.

Okay, so maybe the fact that I'm not 14 anymore means I think beards are sexy.

(At 14 I thought beards were gross.)
Yes, there will be wood elves and high elves and humans and hobbits in the film.

All with faces prettier than an average dwarf.

But I'm sticking by my assessment.

It's a new age, and some of the dwarves are definitely HOT.

Who knew?

  1. isn't it funny how a movie can change what our imaginations came up with. I always picture myself as the main character until I see the movie version...then somehow all I can picture is the actor. ;) Thank God I read all the Harry Potter books before I watched the movies. :P And those really are some Hot Dwarfs. :)

  3. @Ginger: I agree that a movie has great sway over how we see a book.

    Having said that, I think what Peter Jackson has done with The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit is actually better than my own imagination.

    Seriously. I never saw orcs. Couldn't imagine them.

    I saw the elves, but not the details of their costumes or buildings. And the elves I saw in my mind are the elves he brought to life on the screen.

    Yes, I'm a Peter Jackson fan. The man can do no wrong when it comes to Tolkien.

  11. Nice to see a post from you!

    I can't remember another filmmaker who's done it so well--book to screen, I mean. It seems it's never right, except in Jackson's case. I can't wait to see this. I loved the Lord of the Rings films.

  12. @Petrea: Thanks! I know it's been a while since I posted. Autumn and the Holidays just took over my life. LOL. How have you been?

    I agree 1000% when it comes to Peter Jackson. Of course the love the whole crew put into creating the films makes all the difference, doesn't it? They give justice to the genius that was Tolkien.

  17. Hi I am 16, and I have to say, that I think Fili is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Others my age may disagree, but I can't wait to see more of him in the film! :D

  19. Ha-ha...I found this post pleasantly amusing. Duarves seem to have come a long way, at least in the movies.

  20. @Karbon: I agree, totally awesome hat. It reminds me of the orange-n-yellow knitted hat Jayne wore on Firefly. Shiny.

  21. @Ruthski: Oh yes! Aiden Turner is gorgeous. Did you ever see him as the vampire in Being Human? I guess there were two versions of that show, the USA and the UK versions. He was in the UK version. Very dark, so might not be suitable, but he was certainly nice to look at. :D

    1. Oops! Sorry, I didn't see this during the summer! I've moved the blog to http://deborahjdean.com/ and don't check this very often.

      Did you get to see The Hobbit? Wasn't it wonderful? Lots of Aiden and his little bow. He has such a lovely smile when he isn't scowling. :D

    1. Paula, sorry I didn't answer this sooner. I've moved the blog to http://deborahjdean.com/ - come on over and check it out.

      Have you seen The Hobbit yet? It was amazing. I keep telling everyone, if you aren't a Richard Armitage fan when you go into the cinema, you will be when you leave. He was fantastic as Thorin. Love. Love. Love.
