AUJ in general is a good movie, and that's what makes those missteps... [In reply to] Can't Post

so frustrating for me. There are parts of it that I genuinely love (mostly to do with the actors' performance) and things I tried very hard to love but couldn't (mostly visual).

Part of why I find these things jarring is precisely because a lot of work and care were put into them by people who are the best at what they do, and I still can't agree with their vision.

Radagast's House, Bag End and to a degree Dale and Dol Guldur (again, weird lighting aside) are all great in my opinion. So are all the scenes on outdoor locations (though the landscape of the Warg chase doesn't quite look like Middle Earth to me either).

        Think UHD would be more accurate QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Aug 17 2013, 1:07pm
