Okay, I know there’s alot of love for these movies around the SDMB, but I have to point out some laziness I noticed the third time I watched it:
In the battle scene (I can’t recall the location) with the Uruk’Hai battling the elves and men at night at the wall, someone eats it and let’s out a STOCK SOUND EFFECT scream. UNACCEPTABLE! This was one of two stock sounds used in the film that really stood out to me and made me wince. I forget right now where the other one was…
In the same scene, inside the walls the villagers are hiding and a group of children sits with some elderly adults. One of them is that adorable child from the FotR (the scene where Bilbo is telling the story about the trolls to the jumpy kids) with a wig on, I swear! THEY RE-USED AN EXTRA! UNACCEPTABLE!
It’s little things like these that depreciate movies for me. Any movie with a foundation like LotR MUST produce it’s own resources. Anything less is lazy!
