Favorite Wizard?

Post by Ash on Tue May 27, 2008 5:26 pm

Who's your fav wizard throughout literature.

Mine would have to be Raistlin from the Dragonlance books.





he was always at deaths door physically speaking, and yet struggled and struggled inspight of it i... you could never tell if he was Evil or Good.. he was full of inner contention. easily the most mysteriously written wizard I have ever read of too...

Gandalf,
I have ALWAYS loved him.
The part where he falls in the mines fighting the balrog is so beautiful.

Gandalf's cool... he's acutally more than just a wizard too. He's annur or something... I forgot the term... basically an angel who takes on human form.

He actually eludes to this in the movie when he says..


I have lived a hundred lives of men, and still there is no time. --

Raistlin actually becomes a sort of god at the end of his life, an evil god.. who tries to take power from the Greatest goddess of Evil. But at the very end, he sacrifices himself out of love for his brother.. it's such an awesome story.

I am old - I am partial to Merlin. He loved humans and had such faith in them even after being disappointed over and over again.

The Christian side of the story appeals to me as well. I love the story of his conception, his birth, his baptism and how all that tied in to make him so benevolent in his nature.

Man.. I forgot about the Mighty Merlin.

He's no doubt the prototype of the modern idea of wizards.

Raistlin is cool. Blind Guardian has a great song about him called 'The Soulforged'.


And you really need to see the episode containing Wwwyzzerdd... tongue

Seriously, we got to know that Radagast became a total hippie and wandered off somewhere deep in the woods, but not a lot of explanation about the Blue Wizards? Blue Wizard ftw, moreso than brown.

He should have been in the first movie, that's one of only a few complaints I have. Forget Tom Bombadil, he wasn't even original original. We needed another wizard. I think the Moon Moth calling the eagles to rescue Gandalf was to be some kind of allusion to the moth being Radagast, but I would have rather see Raagast himself bumble around some screen time.

Someone made some cards or something in a LOTR style and his picture looks like it came right out of the movie:

Yea.. I'm glad they're making The Hobbit into two films... so they can get more of the details into it... and I'm glad a different company is making it too.


The LOTR movies lost the real magick of Tolkiens world.. because they left out too many of the details and "small" moments in the books.. which are the Best parts and what makes his world real and beautiful.

But adding them all in would have made for a series of movies that were so incredibly, turgidly long as to be almost unwatchable by all but the most diehard Tolkien fans...

and then all of us would have liked it, but the mass market would never have even given it the time of day...

and it wouldn't have made any money...

and bombed completely....

thereby spelling out financial ruin for all involved (probably thousands of people)...

which is not generally the desired result when making a big-budget film.

Ya see?
