     Thranduil continues to appear as the villain [In reply to]  

As if the Elvenking didn't have enough bad press in DoS - now he looks like he's just come to start a war to pick up his pretty necklace, and appears to be clashing swords with Tauriel? I have a suspicion Legolas will be the one to educate him...not happy.

Some good parts, but I'm feeling less enthused than ever.

     Why aren't more people complaining about CG?? [In reply to]  

Half of the trailer looked like unfinished pre-viz! I don't mind the use of CGI in these films, but this one looks really, really bad. Hope it looks better in the film.

     Gawd awful >trolls<?? [In reply to]  

Irony 101. At no point in this entire trailer did I detect any bad cgi. The only reason I know it's cgi is because there's no way such gradios shots can be achieved practically. This was a top notch trailer… aside from the generic music which still fit the mood. Please..

     for me [In reply to]  

I also find the CGI orcs to be really distracting. In LOTR CGI was really only used for orcs with wide shots where there were like hundred of them and they were in the background. I honestly can't stand seeing CGI orcs in closeup crawling over ruins in battle.

And I also agree about the CGI landscapes. While I think the landscape work they have done with the CGI looks very realistic (probably the most realistic CGI work I've seen) there's something about it that creates that artificial feeling. I think a lot of it has to do with that overabundance of it. Whereas before you would have some CGI background with a miniature and a set with an actor, now it's mostly just a the set with the actor and everything else is CGI. miniatures gave a lot of realistic weight that CGI just can't quite reach yet.

Probably the worst trailer out of all six movies. And I don't think this film will be the big hope to rescue the series everyone is hoping it will be.

I've watched the trailer twice now and I can't even process everything in it! Shocked

I like it...it's just that it's so...epic...I can't...I can't even...

Just...just give me a minute to process...

most of us need anything to 'rescue the series'...it's been a good series with many flaws (like LOTR) and this will be an appropriate, epic, flawed and emotional ending to it.

Anyone looking for negativity will be sure to find it.

     It's becasue they'll be fighting the dwarves [In reply to]  

Has to do with scale. Look at the Dol Guldur orcs, they're practical because they'll be fighting the elves. The orcs fighting the dwarves are CG because of scale issues. You can't easily find fifty stunt performers who are all over 7ft tall.

     I think what many people criticize about CGI... [In reply to]  

... is mainly the style. Bad CGI would be something rather objective - the HD style is something deliberate. Dividing, maybe, but used deliberatly.
