I realize there was a lot of CGI in LotR, some good and some not so much (the warg battle) but I never felt that it was used excessively or uneccesarily. Yes, I could tell the wide shots of Rivendell were CGI but I thought they were done well enough not to be distracting. Legolas' heroics in RotK were pushing the limits but were brief enough to forgive. Azog was distractingly animated, and as the primary villain he didn't pull his weight. He always felt awkward on screen to me and I was more worried about that than about his threat to the dwarves. Gollum on the other hand was exceptionally outstanding and the highlight of the film. I really don't see any reason Azog needed to be a CGI character to begin with, and that along with terrible bunny chases and uneccesary stone giants was just too much for me. Still holding out hope for DoS though.
