Oh, sorry, I see why it would be read that way; my bad.
What I meant is that they're trying to use the Pale Orc as a central antagonist through the whole series, so that they can turn the last movie into Return of the King Version 2.0. And to do that, they're playing up his and Thorin's conflict as much as possible, and REALLY playing up his relationship with Bilbo to milk the "betrayal" and death scene for all it's worth.
I'm not at all surprised they'd do that. I just don't like it, personally. I also still don't care. The oak shield part was cool, but it really didn't need to go on for nearly as long as it did. And the whole "charging into battle from the flaming tree" thing, which was supposed to be a climax, had me rolling my eyes so hard. The climax of the movie, for me, was firmly the escape scene from the mountain.
I was also bored with the Giants scene. That went on way too long.
I like graphics!**** as much as the next nerd, but they did a little too much in this film. I really hope they tone it down for the next one. I want Mirkwood to be all about dark shadows and unknown evils, not "YOU GET A SPIDER, YOU GET A SPIDER, EVERYONE GETS A SPIDER!" followed by a Mountain-esque escape from Thorin's palace.
Anyways, you all are horrible, @#%^ed up people
Never underestimate the healing power of a massive dong.
