Thanks Dark Jackal, these are great! [In reply to] Can't Post

Question: is there a way to view the full size images in slideshow mode, or be able to click directly from one to the next? Or can we only click on one to open and view, then close it out and click on the next image to view it?

I don't have the time to analyze all of them... [In reply to] Can't Post

But does anything in these screencaps, or in the EE in general confirm that Thrors beard was CGI?

"You're love of the halflings leaf has clearly slowed your mind"

^^^ That unnecessary apostrophe and "e" is due to the leaf itself. And this part of the signature was documented quite some time after the effect had worn off.

I was referring more to the prologue Thror... [In reply to] Can't Post

And I guess I also answered my own question hahaha.

But Thrors beard in the prologue looks suspiciously fancy. Is it just the jewelery that is CGI?

Slideshow [In reply to] Can't Post

There is a slideshow option I could use when uploading, but I dislike it myself. I find it to be more hassle when searching. You could right click a pic and open in a new window so you don't have to go back as much.

It doesn't look CGI to me. But CGI or not, it's gorgeous Smile

- Good morning.
- What do you mean? Do you mean to wish me a good morning, or do you mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not? Or perhaps you mean to say that you feel good on this particular morning...or are you simply stating that this is a morning to be good on?

- Good evening.
- Yes, yes it is. Though I think it might rain later.

Thanks DJ, great screencaps. [In reply to] Can't Post

What a bloodbath. I remember (from the Appendices, part 7) people literally pouring buckets of red paint to make the scene more bloody.


Oh, and the last screencap is Graham McTavish interviewed by his daughter. It was fun. "Dwalin wasn't bald when he was younger. He lost his hair through stress." Laugh

It's a shame [In reply to] Can't Post

With all these cool background dwarves without helmets or with different armour, that whenever we pull back to a CGI wideshot, added after the 3 film split that they all become identical armoured dwarves.

Yes! [In reply to] Can't Post

On my first viewing, I was amazed at how much CGI was involved.

This may have led me to believe Thrors beard was CGI as well. I did read a review that mentioned Thrors beard being CGI.

I'm still confused by it. If it's not CGI, it speaks for the aesthetic of the film in general. Everything looks almost too crisp. I wish I knew for sure whether or not it was.

That also means it's a great beard!

Rule of thumb for VFX: If the viewer doesn't know if what they're seeing is real, or fake, the production has done a great job.

I suspect [In reply to] Can't Post

a comment to the effect that Thror's beard was CGI in a review, may have been a joke. I'm sure it was fake (it, and the jewelry, were attached by some ingenious means to the actor's face, he did not grow it and then have the jewelry woven into it for shoots...

I guess not [In reply to] Can't Post

but can you imagine the weight of having that thing attached to your chin. Personally, I'm not dead keen on that particular design, but I guess it's ok.

Imagine if all of them had looked like Gimli, but with different coloured hoods. It would have been a nightmare to identify them!

Exactly! [In reply to] Can't Post

When I watched it in the cinema every time it was impossible to tell when they used CGI! I think it shows a bit more on DVD and Blu-ray especially thanks to the ability to pause. Still stellar VFX for sure! Smile
