I really don't like how the main orc leader looks though. He not only looks like a cartoon character, but I find making him entirely CGI really robs the potential of a great performance by an actor. He's a good villain that an actor could really sink their teeth into. That's pretty much my complaint in a nutshell about the over abundance of CGI characters.
I think Azog was improved in DoS (or maybe all of the cgi just looked better in HFR) but he still doesn't look great. I agree... They could have done way better with him. He isn't in this one as much and another Orc kind of takes his place (who looks way better).

As far as I can remember, that particular Orc guy looked damn real and menacing, his tiny fiery eyes were so piercing. After seeing the linked promo clip, I was looking forward seeing him on the big screen. And it delivered. The audience was calm like a deep Winter night, he was that intense.
The other Orcs of the Azog pack were ok too, but not so vividly proportioned as the mentioned one. I wished to see more of them in close-ups instead of wide angle shots, which are quite a lot across the whole movie. And in those, they didn't look very natural, especially when they were moving at a fast pace.

I couldn't get into him as well, he seemed in the first film being cut out of a fantasy video game for minors. They improved his looks in DOS, but he still isn't my favorite villain. The new one, Bolg, is imo a better-looking bad guy. Why they CGIed him as well, I dunno.

Awkwardly calm here it is after the storm, young master Hobbitses.


This time, the awesome score is in the middle of it. That is the last production blog for this movie.

Caught the 2:15 showing of The Hobbit

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

What to say! It definitely should of been two movies instead of three it wasn't ended properly.

The over ridden cgi of the orcs disappointed me as in the LOTR trilogy more practical effects were done.

The character of Tauriel all though not in the book I enjoyed BUT I found it pointless with her affection of Kili I mean really do they need a romance???

Highly entertaining even though it had it's puncture wounds of flaws.

Peter at least kept the scenery intact and beautiful so of course it had that middle-earth feel to it. Also the acting was spot on as usual.

All in All 7/10 I will say this much, throughout the whole movie I kept thinking of Godzilla even though I have seen the trailer my anticipation for that film out weighs the next Hobbit installment all though I do hope it ends with a grand finale.

Is this film essential cinema viewing ?

I ask as a DVD screener has hit the interwebs.

Yes.

There's one long sequence which may be one of the most amazing things I've seen in a theater, and another which is just mind blowing to see in a cinema. Highly recommend not going with the screener.

Not to mention, probably the best on screen dragon... Ever.

I can't wait for Part 3.
