Thank you! ugh especially with the dwarf craze from the hobbit I see so many posts talking about how lame elves are and I just want to sit them down and be like “LET ME TELL YOU A THING ABOUT ELVES” but idk how well that would go over soo
yeah idk how to feel about the movie because I get that they have a reason for being more solemn/placid in the era in which lotr takes place, especially with what they’ve been through (and even in the silm somewhere in the beginning I remember it saying elves become more elf-like and distant as time goes on?), so it should work but I think the fact that many viewers don’t know the history of the elves (so they can’t see Elrond and Galadriel and remember the history of the Noldor and be like “oh so there’s a reason why the elves are like that now!”) makes it so it ends up being counterproductive and makes elves seem sort of boring :(
wow sorry for ranting haha, also I hope you don’t mind me publishing this I just needed to say this for a while (so thanks for bringing it up!)

Finwions! From left: little Feanor busy metalworking and hating everybody, little Finarfin, and little Fingolfin.
‘Then hate overcame Feanor’s fear, and he cursed Melkor and bade him be gone, saying: ‘Get thee gone from my gate, thou jail-crow of Mandos!’ And he shut the doors of his house in the face of the mightiest of all the dwellers in Ea.’ - Of the Silmarils, The Silmarillion.
