Not for me. [In reply to] Can't Post

Given that it's the performance of the character that that makes Azog such a huge failure for me (through his design, animation, and actor's performance), a different name would make little difference. A stock movie villain leftover from one of those terrible Dungeons & Dragons movies that struts around like a professional wrestler would be just that no matter the name.

Though the rectification of Azog's history would lend some improvement towards my feelings overall about AUJ, as that's the single biggest lapse in judgement Jackson/Boyens/Walsh have made with the movies so far (including LotR), in my opinion.
