Wargs done properly!
I was quite fond of the LOTR Wargs. For me this big bad wolves thing is a step back.
The original production make no secret of how disappointed they were in the Wargs of Two Towers. Both in design and ina ctual use.
Actual use because they never properly planned out the Warg battle, I don't remember what it was about the design but I have read several things mentioning the design element of it as well, and that might also be tied to the quick we have to get these done, and we didn't actually plan it out like most of the rest of the larger sequences.
They had a few other scenes like that in the films, but most of those had some modifications done in pickups to polish them up, I don't think they did any pickups for the Warg sequence.
