  1. This was a great podcast. I went to watch the film, after listening to the review on this podcast. I just wanted to chime in, although I agree the actors for the dwarfs were all known faces. After watching the film, I really can not say I could see why the choice was to replace the faces, their roles through out the film didn’t necessitate it n my opinion. In the end it seem to me, that a great opportunity was lost to let some fresh faces shine.
    I know in Game of Thrones, the character in the novel itself is a little person, and is a mastermind. It’s just my opinion, but it seems HBO got the better deal by not adding the unnecessary expense to the budget.
