Man, I have the complete opposite opinion. I thought the Hobbit and dwarves were done really well in The Hobbit. In the LoTR, you could tell the hobbits were either children or CGI when you saw them with the other characters. And Gimli the dwarf was a disaster. They used funky camera angles to make him look short and the few times you saw him from a distance, you could tell it was a different actor. The fact that they also made him the comic relief instead of the great warrior he is in the book was just icing on the cake.
