Default Re: eragon

Eragon Bats loves the Books saw the Movie got use to the Dragon ,,but it's a shame the People who did Lord of Rings or Walt Disney ,didn't do the Eragon
they would have done a better job as there a lot of short-cuts I don't think the story was done real cheap ,make-up etc
I know Walt Disney but remember Tron and a little know movie they made
Dragonslayer what special effects and the Dragon was so well done
it was a bit slow then it all came together.
If they make the second movie I just hope it will be done better get the Guys
who did LOTR or Harry Potter.

Bats, it seems according to IMDB, that Eragon filming began in August of 2005, and finished in September that year. though they released the movie over a year later. lots of CGI time apparently.

DragonDance, rumor I've heard, Paolini's parents ran or owned the publishing company his books were printed under. the "selling" point was "look at this exceptional young author"... even though his stuff felt like fanfic stuff.

Temeraire: Oh. We call them whores in England.

I read the first one when stranded waiting for AAA--my friend had two books he could loan me to read while I could wait, "Dragonsblood" or "Eragon", so I went for the crap I HADN'T read. It was about five pages in I started going "HEY! This is a lot like Star Wars! If Tolkien had named all the characters!"
