Azog vs Bolg in all factors Can't Post

Who do you prefer, in terms of look, CGI, dialogue, design, story, scenes, fighting style and more?
And also, hypothetically, who do you think would win in a fight? ;)

Personally I love Azog and rather dislike Bolg. Azog's design is beautiful but also terrifying, making him look gracefully scary and intimidating. I love his backstory and the Elven features in his design.

Bolg I did not like so much because of the CGI. It looked very clean and fake, whereas Azog and other Orcs looked very authentic. I also did not dig the actual design and thought it was a bit generic. Another thing I didn't like was that many of his scenes in the film were quite simple and lacked meaning i.e "Ah! The Gate is looked!!" or "Ah! We will follow them later". Azog had similar scenes but they each had something to make them worth while like the great direction and White Warg on Weathertop. Bolg's scenes felt quite bland and like they were put in late in production for exposition. I did like his fight vs Legolas though. Those two both felt a bit fake in DOS and this fight help to give each of them a sense of reality and weight. Also, maybe the EE and TABA will fix this, Bolg lacked a cool backstory to give his intentions context.

Also, Azog would massacre Bolg in a fight ;)

What do you all think?

    Clearly Azog but I think that was part of the point of Bolg... moreorless Send a private message to moreorless Dec 23 2013, 9:09am
