    The book mentions that there are black people in the southern part of the continent if I remember right.

    Well, I suppose that you could argue that there was magic involved with breaking up the rock ledge that cast the fiery demon with the whip (and himself) into the sweet by-and-by. Either that, or he's a geologist who knows right where to hit a stone that causes an avalanche.

    Well, you know what they say - a good driver hardly uses the brakes.

    But there is also: the water horses, butterflys, the torch inside Moria, disarming Aragorn, Gimly and Legolas in the Fangorn forest, etc.

    Yeah, and there was also that time he cast a bolt of lightning in the book, but whatever. I still use more magic than that guy. Think about it: the sum total of The Hobbit and LOTR is about 1800 pages, and we can count the instances of him using magic on the fingers of nearly two hands.

    Its very pro gay! Legolas and Gimli are such a happy couple.

    Lets stay on the film, please. In the book Saruman has quite a different fate but we are discussing the film now. Thanks.
