DIFFERENCE in LOTR ORCS and HOBBIT ORCS Can't Post

i really enjoyed DOS. so please do not take me for a hater. but i also find the way PJ handled orc bands in this movie to be quite sloppy. Orcs traveling quite freely through Ranger territory, Rivendell territory, Woodland Elf territory, Laketown territory, etc. without getting slaughtered. Even Beorn territory felt too easily traveled, though we at least saw him patrolling. and yes i know we saw orcs get killed in Rivendell lands but still some were left to leave. i really do not understand how the orcs were so easily able to get right on the doorstep of the Woodland King's "palace", or whatever the hell you would like to call it. Apparently the Mirkwood elves are as dumb as they are talked up to be in the movie. This was probably my biggest complaint, and i think its simply because in LOTR we are constantly reminded that Orc groups needed to travel fast and take care while camping because of the high risk of endangerment. Also, it really bothered me that the orcs in DOS could travel easily in daylight, which contradicts previous installments. These orcs were apparently damn good trackers because even after escaping their clutches via eagles, the orcs are right on the heel of our merry band of dwarves. /sigh, it just feels lazy. i dunno. i just watched Fellowship the other day and this all just really stood out to me. thoughts? help put my mind at ease?

I'd certainly let Ian McKellen manhandle me.
