While I understood Peter Jackson to be adding material from the appendices, and was fine with this, I do not think the "catch me if can" sequence with Radaghast and Azog was justified. Azog was to have died in the war of the Dwarves and Orcs. He should have done more with that sequence, and been more accurate. I was not happy with the screenplay concerning the trolls either. The scene with the Goblin-king should have had more story in the throne room. Really make us hate the Goblin king like the Dwarves, eagles, and Beorn hated him. Lastly, P.J. should have stuck by the book concerning the "15 birds in 5 fir trees," sequence. That stupid moth-trick was not necessary.
