I also like to think of it not as a new discovery, but as a revelation on a longterm, worsening problem. [In reply to] Can't Post

"Nothing grows there anymore," is not a statement one makes after a short observation. I have and like the notion that things had been going sour in the Greenwood for years, but has only recently reached a point where it is so bad and pervasive that Radagast cannot explain it through anything other than a powerfully malevolent force.

In Reply To
is that we don't know when Radagast's introduction, and subsequent disovery of evil in the forest, takes place within the film-verse. It might be a bit farfetched to place it one hundred years or more before the events of The Hobbit (when they would have actually taken place), but it makes sense to me to think of them taking a few months before he finds and meets up with Gandalf, possibly even a year or so. By this line of thinking, it could have taken Radagast a month or so to find Gandalf and the company, and still make in film sense.


"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."

Something that annoys me is Radagast's timing AshNazg Send a private message to AshNazg Oct 25 2013, 8:01pm
    There's really no point in introducing Glorfindel MatthewJer18 Send a private message to MatthewJer18 Oct 25 2013, 8:13pm
        But how does Saruman know about these "schemes"? AshNazg Send a private message to AshNazg Oct 25 2013, 8:40pm
        I am with AshNazg on Glorfindel, though not for this scene. He should have been in Rivendell, MUCH more so AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Oct 26 2013, 1:07am

    I thought the finding was odd as well, however, he is a friend to all beasts and birds, AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Oct 26 2013, 1:15am
    I'm annoyed by how quickly Radagast travels from one side of the Misty Mountains to the other side on a rabbit sled. Bladerunner Send a private message to Bladerunner Oct 26 2013, 2:46am
