Subject: RE: BS: Saw The Hobbit during the holidays
Hehe! I hated it so much I could hardly speak about it after we'd left the cinema :D

Why Frodo? Why any of the changes? They completely fucked with the narrative, ripped the guts from the actual story and slapped a huge fat predicable Hollywood 'action movie with wizards in' hand all over it. Aaarg!

I hated Radagast, who wasn't a ridiculous comedy figure, but wise and humble, unlike Saruman of course. Indeed, we see a glimpse of Saruman's ultimate fall from pride in his dismissal of Radagast, who - by way of contrast - Gandalf actually respects highly.
