Thorin in the books is constantly described as over-important and full of himself. His character was also, annoyingly, basically turned into the main protagonist of the movies. So even though that kind of sucked, book Thorin would probably have loved movie Thorin a ton. So many big speeches. Perfect.

Thorin: My mind does not change with the rising and setting of a few suns

Me: hmmm. either that’s a reference to a few days passing, or Middle Earth has multiple suns. Both seem equally possible. The multiple suns are never mentioned again, but I’m gonna go with that option.

Thorin: I heard you had some stones that you prized beyond all people and threatened to kill anyone who had some. 

Feanor: Yeah. 

Thorin: Hey, me too. How neat is that? Shiny stones are the best!

Feanor: They totally are! Let’s hang out.

Thorin: The arkenstone is worth more than a river of gold
in itself, and to me it is beyond price. 

Bilbo: Thorin, a river of gold would be worthless. You’d never be able to collect or guard the gold, it would devalue everything. It’s supply would completely outstrip dema-

Thorin: Okay I get it, I just want the Arkenstone!

Regular

Thorin: And why should you get any of the gold?

Bard: It was by my hand that the dragon was slain! And furthermore, many of our homes were destroyed when it fell from the sky!

Thorin: Pity. Can one of you dwarves play this man a tune on a small violin? His story is indeed tragic. That is all.

Regular

Thorin: Yes, someone else did kill the dragon, and in the process a city was destroyed and many homes were lost. But the fact remains that I called dibs on the gold, and around here that still means something!

If I was one of the 13 dwarves

Thorin: now for some music!

Me: uh, i didn’t know we were supposed to bring any instruments. sorry guys. also what are we singing? does anyone have the words that I can look in on? sorry I really didn’t know we were supposed to prepare for this, I thought it was just a normal dinner.

Fili: hey have I said that this trip is ere-boring yet?

Thorin: if you keep saying it I’m going to feed you to Smaug
