Something is wrong here... Can't Post

I'm going to provide you with several images of GCI and SFX in both the lord of the rings trilogy, produced over a decade, and the brand new hobbit movie.
exhibit 1: the cave troll

exhibit 2: the warg

exhibit 3: gollum

exhibit 4: THE GOBLINS

Notice they are actors, dressed in awesome costumes...

...and that is the hobbit...

Why does 10 year old GCI look better? It blends nicer, isn't as over the top and in your face, has much more texture and quality...
