Sauron used the orcs as well, and later he developed the uruk-hai and the olog-hai. They are both stronger, more daylight resistant orcs, as big as men and fierce in combat. Saruman did not design the uruk-hai (as in the movie) that is a common misconcepcion.
He has taken up with foul folk, with the Orcs. Brm, hoom! Worse than that: he has been doing something to them; something dangerous. For these Isengarders are more like wicked Men. It is a mark of evil things that came in the Great Darkness that they cannot abide the Sun; but Saruman's Orcs can endure it, even if they hate it. I wonder what he has done? Are they Men he has ruined, or has he blended the races of Orcs and Men? That would be a black evil!'
The Olog-hai were bred by Sauron when he was in Southern Mirkwood at Dol Guldur and they were not made from Orc stock but from Trolls.Sauron used the orcs as well, and later he developed the uruk-hai and the olog-hai.
Some held that they were not Trolls but giant Orcs; but the Olog-hai were in fashion of body and mind quite unlike even the largest of Orc-kind whom they surpassed in size and power, Trolls they were, but filled with evil will of their master: a fell race, strong, agile, fierce and cunning, but harder than stone. Unlike the older of their race of the Twilight they could endure the Sun, so long as the will of Sauron held sway over them. - from Return of the King, Part I of Appendix F under Trolls.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but Sauron did not develop the Uruk-Hai, nor had any dominion over them. It was Saruman who made them and was their master. The movies aren't wrong all the time.
