"dragon fire", conventional fire effects versus digital fire Can't Post

the only complaint i had with the visual effects (90 percent were top notch) was smaug's fire. I don't know, everytime i watch the opening sequence with smaug raining down fire i think it could have been more realistic. -I hope in DOS the fire effects are better, i also hope they use conventional fire effects when possible. Last sunday's game of thrones for example, when the dragon breathed fire onto a certain person, i read that it was actually a flamethrower shot down onto the stunt man. -A better choice in my opinion than CGI fire.


take me down to the woodland realm where the trees are green and the elf women are pretty....Oh will you please take me home!!
