The "unfinished/polished" CGI Issue Can't Post

I loved the trailer and although I thought it should have centered more on Bilbo and the Dwarves' quest, it still got me excited. Nonetheless, I was one of those that were taken aback by some of the CGI shown in certain shots.

Most users on this forum are reasoning that there's still time for polishing shots before the release of the film and that's fair enough. However, one has to keep in mind that many of the scenes shown in the trailer were originally going to form part of the first film (before it became a trilogy) and therefore, work had almost been completed on them by July 2012. Since then, I'm sure WETA has had time to go through them several times.

Which is why I'm concerned about it all. Do the scenes from Beorn to the Barrels really need to be polished? Don't you think they're 90% finished by now (for over a year) and that WETA is concentrating its efforts on the rest of the story's visual effects?

Again, I enjoyed the trailer but I thought Legolas' face was too perfect - the first shot where he slides in front of Thorin and surprises him is a giveaway digital double. Ironically, Beorn's bear form looks so much more realistic than Legolas himself Crazy

The landscapes (especially Laketown) are breathtaking, however, I'm worried that these so-called "unfinished" CGI shots have actually already been approved and completed and therefore no improvement will be made upon them ...
