I second that, the only thing im not comletely sure about from the Hobbit is Azog,i couldnt comletely see the reason of him taking Bolg's role, i mean Bolg looks scarier than him anyway.Other than that i loved it.

It's the same year when the Battle of Azanulbizar was. (2799). So it is 142 years(!!) Peter Jackson, why do you do this to us??

Just read this for the first time.. Apparantly Peter Jackson thinks orcs can only be slain or die of grief, as they are originally elves(not completely sure about this);)

I think you got me wrong. In my comment I didn't complain about their ability to age or not to age, but Peter Jackson's idea to let Azog survive the battle, although he should have died in it.

The Silmarillion is correct! Although I was looking for a different chapter, where the dwarves were attacked by the Laiquendi led by Beren. Then the surviving dwarves flied and after they climbed up the Dolmed Mountain, they were killed by the Ents.

It is in the Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit and the Silmarillion. Deus ex Machina stands for God of the Machine, which a writer uses when he has "painted" himself into a situation that is seemingly unsolvable.

No, they only kill the dwarves of Nogrod because they murdered Thingol, Luthien's father. So they do not actually help Beren and Luthien, but the Elves.

"Deus ex Machina" means "god from the machine" and in this case an unexpected rescue or help from a bigger power when there is no hope for the hero or main characters to escape a dangerous situation, for instance the eagles or Gandalf in the Hobbit.

Ah, well maybe that is the case. I recently read a biogrophy though, that said John and his brother would call a 'scary old farmer' gaffer gamgee when they were children. They would play a game where they would hop the fence into his property, and he would chase them away when he caught them. I think Tolkien just re-used the name with his kids. The farmer was also inspiration for farmer maggot in fotr. Anyways though, Mark was close, so he can go.
