Dialog prediction [In reply to] Can't Post

Elrond or Galadriel: But where is Radagast?
Saruman: Radagast the brown? Radagast the bird tamer? Radagast the simpleton; Radagast the fool.

(well; let's say two out of those four styles)

Not true [In reply to] Can't Post

While he is never specifically named in the Council, it is odd he would be ignored. Why would the Council purposely omit a Wizard? Don't say his advice wouldn't be useful, because Elrond sent his sons to consult with Radagast.

Members known:

Cirdan (who isn't in the picture yet was in ROTK)
Galadriel
Gandalf
Saruman
Elrond

Members that could be assumed:

Celeborn
Glorfindel
Radagast
Erestor

I was under the impression that this was a physical feature that hinted at "evil" in LOTR...

I see the same blue taint on this picture of Orcrist, but perhaps it's just the reflection of the sky

*Squint* Does Galadriel have a new costume here? [In reply to] Can't Post

Or does it just look like that? In the upper pic? The sleeve and the fabric look different.

The Wormtongue effect. [In reply to] Can't Post

How could anyone look at this Saruman and believe he's a good guy? Or is he meant to represent 'good but dangerous', like Galadriel?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Omisions. [In reply to] Can't Post

In terms of making a quality and approachable movie for the casual fan, introducing Cirdan, Glofindel and Erestor into the story not long after introducing the 13 dwarves would be very tricky to do. Tolkein never gave them essential roles in the White Council so it's not surprising they've been omitted.

Radagast on the other hand is more surprising an omission given he's in the film anyway. There must be a good reason. Maybe he'll be protrayed as more 'washed up' than in the books.
