airyairyquitecontrary: Lotr meme: ten scenes [8/10]→ Listen carefully: Lord Denethor is Boromir’s father. To give him news of his beloved son’s death would be most unwise. This is why I’m so sad that Desolation of Smaug had the Company just arriving at Beorn’s house at a dead run. They completely ruined the running gag about how embarrassed Gandalf is to bring his short weird goofy friends to meet his cool friends, so he’s all ‘JUST DON’T SAY ANYTHING UNTIL I BUTTER HIM UP. Bilbo, you stick close to me and look cute.’ They might as well have cut Beorn from the picture for all the value they gave that part of the story.
