Does anyone prefer the new look of the orcs to the old look? Can't Post

I'm not talking about Azog here, just the orcs in general. Yes, I know there were a few orcs who were guys in prosthetics, but it seems that a good portion of the orcs in AUJ were either totally CGI, or had CGI heads put on real bodies. I can't find the article, but apparently Jackson has said that he would have done the LOTR orcs with CGI if he could go back. Personally, I think most of the AUJ orcs looked pretty cartoonish and not the least bit intimidating (for instance, the Warg scout who sniffed the air looking for the dwarves, and the orc that Bilbo killed in to save Thorin). Anyway, how many of you felt the digital orcs of AUJ looked in any way better than the "real-looking" orcs of LOTR?

    In retrospect, some of the orcs in LOTR were rather "stiff-faced" DeadRabbits Send a private message to DeadRabbits Jun 25 2013, 12:38pm
