I was robbed! Christian Bale has a more complete vision? I think not. I can take Houdini, Tesla, Gandalf and Merlin (of course, Merlin, of course. Who would think anything but Merlin in that spot.)

Apparently the authors are the second most “insensitive warts I have ever had the misfortune to meet.”

How does Merlin have a greater ability to execute, and more complete vision, than Gandalf?

Also, wasn’t Gargamel an alchemist, not a magician?
