The continued devotion to this project is incredible to me. Years of planning and commitment. Thank You Peter Jackson and team.

Ok then. Now that you all know how much I love Rings and Hobbit, here I go.

Not so good stuff.

Azog. Scary and cool but lost some of the direct impact because of CGI. Lurtz, Gothmog, LOTR Orcs and Uruks were better because they were real actors in real costumes. I have to say the CGI wargs were cartoonish also. I understand its for children and so I will stop there, I am sure a younger crowd will like that so I am good with it. Here I go into enemy territory. It was a bit too long about 20 mins Sorry. I love the great epics that Peter Jackson and his crew have made but a few minutes of editing would have appealed to me and so many more people. That being said I loved the Hobbit, a true delight. I have seen it 3 times in as many days so I am a real fan. Thanks Onering.net for all the years.
