In agreement [In reply to] Can't Post

The Bigatures in LOTR were beautiful and really sold it to me. I don't think any of them look dated and yes, I think Rivendell really benefitted from having the outdoor set as well as the CGI matte paintings etc. I was hoping that there would be more miniatures in TH and was really disappointed when I learnt it would all be CGI. A balance of all these elements works best for me. As for Goblin Town, I did not find that more realistic at all. Moria felt much more creepy, dangerous and real. On my 2D (but still HD) TV a lot of the Goblin Town sequence is blurry (not to mention very silly) in the fast moving parts. I much preferred Moria, which, with the exception of the bit where Aragorn and Frodo are on the staircase as it falls towards their companions, I find much more realistic.
Re Azog, he does look painted in, but then I think that's because he was, and in a hurry too. I felt we could really have done without the character, except at Azanulbizar, where he should have died. If they had to have an orc pursuit of the company, then Bolg would have sufficed IMO
Agree with your last paragraph wholeheartedly
