I thought he was a little odd, and kinda struck me as like the hippie wizard :lol: The way I had him pictured in my mind from the books wasn't quite like he was in the Hobbit movie, he was stranger in the movie than what I pictured him to be!

That's what I thought although he is intelligent he may want to hide it

My favorite part is when The man (i have momentarily forgot his name) shoots Smaug with the black arrow in his only vulnerable part.

I think they made Radagast a little too crazy... He's a maiar for goodness sakes! They also gave him too much screen time.
@mani that really has nothing to do with the subject but his name is Bard

Yeah, I thought he was a little too strange as well... same reason as Elfqueen4... he is a maiar after all!

And also thought he had a little too much screen time. I know the online game LOTRO is not the ruller but they did him in there and I loved the way he was. He was still all about the animals and all that but he wasn't so weird and such.


I did love his rabbit sleigh in the movie, though.

I also think he is stranger in the movies than he is in the books. But I don't mind. The rabbits are funny.

I think we all agree the rabbit sleigh was pretty awesome but I still think they could have made him a little more serious or at least a little smarter.

Yeah, the rabbits are pretty much his signature from the movies. lol

I think if they would have just altered a few things they could have kept a little of the crazy but given him a semblance of ability as well. On a harsh note they almost made him seem as though he was a bumbling individual with mental problems. Though I realize he is not.

I didn't really mind him that much in the movie, I just thought it was a little too much.

*nods*


Has anyone else by chance played the Lord of the Rings Online game to know what Radagast is like in the game?

In the movies he`s interesting, but I think Tolkien wrote that he was not fulllfing the task he was sent for.
I don`t hate him, but he is a bit disappointing.

Hm... I will have to keep an eye out now when I read through the hobbit for what it says about Radagast. I didn't realize he wasn't fulfilling his task the way he was supposed to.

You can find that in Tolkiens "Unfinished tales" and more about Istari.

Ah, have not read those yet. I will have to keep that in my line up after we get through the hobbit, trillogy and then silmarilion. We are trying to read those in order as a family... it's likely to be slow going. :P
