corrections and info

#1- They originally had Bofur get caught and surrendered for, but then they realized that (before the AUJ pickups), nothing character-wise happened to Bilbo, no growth and nothing really to the Thorin relationship. Also, perhaps better to buy some time to figure out a way to escape (not to mention Gandalf is out there and could come help eventually). In the Battle, they succeed in killing trolls and ogres while with the dwarf army and with weaponry they did not have while facing the 3 trolls.

#2- "Goblin Mercenaries... no more than a hundred." And they show that these are indeed the same kind of goblins as from GoblinTown, which were established as being very wimpy against them.
The Company does not kills hundreds of orcs in the battle.The tide changes because the dwarf army gets a huge morale boost and rally because their king has joined them.
They don't see it's Azog (or even know exactly how many guys are chasing them) until they are already up in the not-burning trees, and by that point they literally have wargs nearly biting off their feet. Wargs were also not used in the Battle.

#4- While the Kili/Tuariel romance was always a thing, the love triangle was imposed by WB later on. Legolas and Tauriel were originally written and filmed as good friends or sibling-like.

#5- Smaug is shown to be a playful, spiteful, and cruel. What would be more hurtful to Bilbo, killing him or torching an entire city in his name and letting him live to have that guilt eat at him? Invisible conversation would have been visually boring/weird and unsuspenseful. Taking off the ring shows the ability for Smaug to get into Bilbo's head and the power of the ring itself in influencing Bilbo. Also, only at the very end of the conversation does Smaug actually try to kill Bilbo.
