That ending of The Walking Dead was STRAIGHT out of the comics and I loved it. This season is shaping up to be hands down the best one yet.

roooar haha, sweet. I wonder how Azog will die when all is said and done... it'd be a cool little nod if Thorin cuts off his other arm and then decapitates him like Aragorn does to the main orc at the end of Fellowship... I'm sure it'll be different than what happens to him in the book now that he's already come this far

The Hobbit Countdown - 22 Days - Radagast the Brown

Played By: Sylvester McCoy



Who is he?

Radagast is one of the Five Istari (Wizards) sent to essentially watch over and protect Middle-Earth as higher beings of power and knowledge. He's the "weaker" of the five but is mostly concerned in the nature and wildlife of the landscape rather than the musings of good and evil. He's an expert in that area and can communicate with all animals of Middle-Earth as well as being the warmest and kindest of spirits out there (his entire cabin was built AROUND a tree hence it's odd shapes and twisting base). He is another character that was only mentioned in the Appendices as well as The Lord of the Rings but never in The Hobbit, and his inclusion and character design is 99% original work.

What we can expect in The Desolation of Smaug

Radagast the Brown was met with a wide array of opinions from all fans of both the book and the movies with some going as far as to call him "The Jar-Jar Binks of Middle-Earth". Now I'll be the first to admit that when I initially saw the movie I thought he was a bit too goofy for my taste (the bird shit on his head was just too out there) but overall it FIT THE TONE OF THE BOOK. This is a novel that plays more on fantasy and the aspects of that whimisical nature rather than the gritty evil that threatens our heroes in The Lord of the Rings. I've grown to appreciate the character over multiple viewings and I definitely have to say that I am 100% a Radagast fan. This guy gets shit done in these movies since he A. Saved the entire company from a warg pack, B. TOOK ON AND DEFEATED THE WITCH KING as well as escaping Sauron and C. warned Gandalf and the White Council of the impending doom that was on the way.

His inclusion in An Unexpected Journey was tied almost directly to The Necromancer and that will undoubtedly be where he shows up in The Desolation of Smaug. He will be definitely be leading Gandalf back to Dol Guldur where they'll be in search of The Necromancer and the darkness that will be attacking Middle-Earth. I'm sure they'll go into more detail about the sorcery and black magic that has been infecting the wildlife and I do firmly believe that Radagast will have a larger role in decoding that same sorcery.

Stephen Amell breaks down spoilers into two groups on his FB page, spoilers and CAPITOL S spoilers, which I find awesomely true. Too many times people bitch and complain about things that aren't even spoilers or were seen in the trailers and previews for new episodes. I'm totally using "Capitol S Spoilers" whenever I talk about big ones now.. thanks Amell!

I'm finally caught up on Arrow and Season 2 took the show from goofy fun to legitimately awesome. The characters and their arcs have been engaging to witness, the action has been raised to a whole other level with epic fight choreography (Black Canary ftw) and the comic book references have been rapid fire. The League of Assassins and Ra's Al Ghul on top of Black Canary, a potential Red Arrow and more Deadshot and Slade Wilson? This show kicks a ton of ass and has really progressed into a solid hour of entertainment each week.

One more reason I fucking love this man

"Yeah, you know what, I am a bit of a purist! So I love it when Pete finds his way back to something which is absolutely, completely in the book, and the dialogue is from the book, the moment is from the book… I love it. But you know, I suppose the way I see it – it’s like a folktale, where you put it into the hands of another reader, and they’ll tell it in a different way. They’ll use different voices; they may go off on a tangent, talking about a particular character… I know that Tolkien wrote this down, but I think at one point he probably told it to his children verbally, and he may have… you know, it’s like riffing on a theme. I don’t know how he told that story to his kids; but this is just Peter picking up the book and telling the story, and then at times he puts the book down, and he expands an idea. That’s really all it is. You know, he loves Tolkien as much as anybody else; the writers, Philippa and Fran, they are just… Tolkien obsesses them! They will hunt down anything they can find, in the material that they are permitted to look at; any kind of jewels, little nuggets that they can use, because they want this story to be as big and epic as it can be. And working with Lord of the Rings, they had so much material; but with The Hobbit it’s such a simple, small tale; and I think that the chance to go back to Middle-earth, and explore all of these avenues with all of the great characters that come in, each of whom have their own Middle-earth history, that Tolkien went back and sort of retrofitted … I think that Pete’s looking at all of those ideas. And he is inventing some story as well, and some characters, but I think at the centre of it, the book is still very much there. It’s like a spine."

What he said.

JohnLocke2342 updated his STATUS: 11 months ago

Also I have to ask and if you're a fan of him I'm not trying to start a flame war but is Charlie Hunnam always this fucking terrible of an actor? I mean, damn, I thought he was borderline unbearable with that stale delivery and lack of emotion or change in his vocal pitch throughout the entire thing. I don't watch Sons of Anarchy so I have no idea if that's just who he is, if it's his acting style or if he's much better on the show but he was definitely the weakest link for me in that cast.
Cochise
Cochise at 04:02 PM Nov 20

I thought he was fine Pacific Rim, in terms of being a leading man I think he's not the best... but he's just as good or better than an Armie Hammer or a Henry Cavill I think.

Honestly though yeah I like him, and love Sons... but he kind of totally sucks at keeping an American accent, he always slips on it in the show, though I didn't remember noticing it in the movie (though maybe that's just because I was used to his voice so much already lol). So yeah, not the best actor... but he's got the look (especially on Sons... he should just look like that in everything lol)

He has looks, charisma, and presence, but no acting chops. I did like him in Nicholas Nickleby, though.

Thanks erico.

Actually that's the only one I have to make, NGE lol. Well you and Weapon-X know of that series and yet you loved PAC RIM too so indeed there is room for both. I'm merely putting it out there for the folks who aren't familiar that it's something to check out in the giant robot & monster mash-em'up sub-genre of sci-fi entertainment.

Let me tell ya somethin', I am not a fan of this genre. I haven't seen a bunch of the other stuff out there, watched POWER RANGERS as a teenager but that's it. I don't go out of my way to see all these giant robot things because in my mind they usually end up like PACIFIC RIM did and that just doesn't interest me a whole lot. EVANGELION however, I stand by it as a standout work that is unique and worth watching for a multitude of reasons. I think if you took out all the giant robot & monster elements from EVA but kept everything else the way it is, it would still be interesting as something of a human character drama. Somewhat of a stretch probably to say the same about PAC RIM, I'd imagine.

ericodarko
ericodarko at 07:41 PM Nov 21

Well, I have seen everything Power Rangers as well haha wAsn't sure if that counted as a comparison in this discussion haha

I don't think it's quite fair to compare EVA in that way with PACRIM by saying that if you remove the monsters vs robots aspect that it could still stand alone as a drama. One was a multi-episodic anime that had plenty of time to flesh out these human character and built drama around the events while the other is a 2 hour movie that had to split that time presenting the mythology/origin of the monsters, give a historical background is the events that led to these attacks and also present all these human characters. Yes, character development did suffer because Del Toro had so much to present to the viewers that some things had to be sped up but I think he set up this amazing world that would be awesome to revisit in the future/other rmedia

YoshioKun13
YoshioKun13 at 08:10 PM Nov 21

I think anything involving giant robots fighting otherworldly creatures counts. :)

Eh you're probably right, it's not fair to compare them in that way being that NGE was an episodic series and RIM is a movie with limited time constraints. Saying to take away the sci-fi element of giant robots & monsters too would be way oversimplifying it, there are too many factors involved to be able and tell how that would turn out for either.

However, EVANGELION was recently repackaged and presented as a series of movies itself. That's mainly what I'm citing here to put up against RIM, then it's more of a fair comparison. Don't know if you've seen those new Rebuild films erico, but they carry over the same story & narrative in movie format with 1.11, 2.22, the upcoming 3.33, etc.

Del Toro has painted a vivid visual world with RIM and I'd be willing to give him a shot at expanding it with a sequel. I think the black market angle was intriguing, never seen that before in one of these things and the music score was good. Work on the characters, come up with better more interesting monsters to fight and I'm down.

The Hobbit Countdown - 23 Days - The Master of Laketown

Played By: Stephen Fry


Who is he?

He is, as the title suggests, the Master of Laketown which is a town close to Erebor and The Lonely Mountain. He is never given a name in the book but interacts with the company as they enter the city towards the latter half of the Smaug encounter. He's sort of a flamboyantly greedy type of leader but never one who is maliciously evil or angry.. he's sort of like a fat, weak-minded dude.

What we can expect in The Desolation of Smaug

Well we can expect a lot of Stephen Fry being Stephen Fry which is a great thing for the tone and atmosphere of the universe Jackson created. He'll most likely get a ton of sequences with Bard as he did in the book and it'll be interesting to see if they play them against one another or have them show the bond they had (which again, was something only touched on in the novel). He'll most likely be the bombacious, larger than life ruler of Laketown who's comedic timing will be something of a joy to witness. especially with Martin Freeman.
