I am not a fan of sticking consitently with a horrible decision. Orcs are bred and born [In reply to] Can't Post

and the business in the fellowship movies was a bizzare deviation. It also can be assumed to ONLY apply to the Uruk-Hai (even if it is entirely wrong regarding them).

One I never really liked the design of Bolg. He looks more like a clown than anything else. Although he looks very CGI, I prefer the look of Azog.

Aside from my personal preferences, I think having Bolg will just be confusing for those who are not well versed in Tolkien's universe. I mean no one really gets how Bolg is the son of Azog anyway or whether that was for sure Tolkien's final decision on the matter. In Jacksons LotR, orcs are made, not born, so the son of another orc thing doesn't make so much sense for the movie. Really, Bolg will be reduced to just another orc trying to kill some dwarves. The only difference is that this orc looks like a clown.


"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."

                    Not Glorfindel and Bombadil. Secondary characters stay ommitted. Tertiary charcters and add ins AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Jun 26 2013, 4:26am

    I disagree for many reasons. Among them, using Azog in this way entirely rewrites the motivation for the war of The Dwarves AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Jun 26 2013, 4:25am
