Thread: God in the Movie
And Saruman looks so Good (non-evil) in those gorgeous cream robes of his. I think that shows how evil can look Good and decieve even the wisest of people.
'...You have frightened me several times tonight, but never in the way that the servants of the enemy would--well, seem fairer and feel fouler, if you understand.'
'I see,' laughed Strider. 'I look foul and feel fair. Is that it? All that is gold does not glitter, not all those that wander are lost.'
Saruman was evil in the movie from the beginning, cos when Gandalf went to see him for advice, what did Saruman do again? Right, he tried to convince him to join the evil willies, and when Gandalf refused, he was locked up on the pinnacle of the tower. No need to recall that, I think...
But in the book, I think it took him much longer to become evil. Since Gandalf always spoke of him as the wisest of the council, and to Frodo he even said sth like: "I'll ask Saruman for advice, and he'll know what to do, so don't worry." (with stress on "sth like that", cos I really can't recall his exact words).
And since we know that in the old days, Saruman was the wisest man of the council of wise (that is why they appointed him as a leader, for a start) there can be no doubt that he was TURNED evil by Sauron through the Palantir. Through which Palantir, I leave that to you...
Saruman called Gandalf"friend" which means that at some point of his life he was GOOD(Gandalf could not be that fooled)and after that Gandalf says:Tell me FRIEND....so I got no idead what the h*** am I talking about
