   I really enjoyed what they did with a very druidic character and the great scenes he got.   

I'm happy Radagast is portrayed well, I was worried he was just going to be done comically or something

I heard it was just that they were including information relevant to The Hobbit's backstory that was in the appendices of LotR

   The moment he revealed the blade to Gandalf pretty much was the nail in the coffin for that.

at first i was worried when i saw how they portrayed him, but then saw him    hare-sledding   . Big thumbs up for me. :0)

Incidentally, the never-seen and rarely mentioned blue wizards' names are Alatar and Pallando.

They went to Middle-Earth's equivalent to Africa I guess? :I

Ya, Africa/Middle East, kinda.

They're hardly mentioned at all, we pretty much know nothing about them except that they went over there, that they never returned, and they probably failed the task given to them.

Saw it at the midnight release with some friends. It was as fantastic as it could be. Hate that I got to wait, but I'm eagerly awaiting the next ones.

I did like that this one had a bit more in the way for funny moments too, though my friends are sure that it'll get more serious from here.

I only have one problem with the movie. The entire time I was there, I kept wishing that Lord of the Rings could have been that good.

Just got back from seeing it. Loved it. Well adapted.
   Loved the Bunny sled~   

   Also when Galadriel and Gandalf are having that setting sun talk I couldn't stop thinking of the "Now Kiss~" meme.

Saw it last night. Wasn't anything spectacular for me. But hey, it was paid for.

Re: Stuff: An Unexpected Journey.

Yeah, we got it the first time. You don't care.

BACK TO THE RABBIT SLED

Re: Stuff: An Unexpected Journey.

Tue Dec 18, 2012 8:22 pm

I turned to my friend at that part and said I wanted one.

I turned to my friend at that part and asked for more popcorn.

WELL OBVIOUSLY RABBITS MAKE YOU HUNGRY, AND THEY MAKE ME WANT TO OWN AND MAKE THEM DRIVE MY SLEDS.

YOU JUST WANT TO ENSLAVE THE RABBITS AND FORCE THEM TO DO YOUR BIDDING.

I'd feed them carrots, and love them :(
