A Few Nitpicks Can't Post

I've watched the DVD a few times since I bought it and there's a few things that bug me

1: Why does Thranduil bring a host of Elves to Erebor when Smaug attacks? The dragon's attack is unexpected and happens so fast, so why does Thranduil come with an army if it's just for a visit? perhaps some kind of ceremony or something?

2: In LOTR the ground in front of the buildings in bywater (The green dragon) is filled with gravel and rocks you can see this clearly in ROTK when Gandalf brings his stagecoach wagon to pick up Frodo to go to The Grey Havens as there are whell marks in the gravel, yet in The Hobbit flashforwards to Old Bilbo's time you can see Bywater in the background and the ground is just grass when clearly in the LOTR trilogy it was gravel but they are supposed to be in the same time frame.

3: The stone trolls in FOTR are giant compared to The trolls in The Hobbit, I thought it was forced perspective at first but no the trolls are HUGE while in the Hobbit they are just a few feet taller then Gandalf is maybe it's forced perspective in The Hobbit though.
