Now this has been made into a movie, i was wondering what you guys thought of the books.

Ive heard good things so far.

 

EDIT: Sorry just realized this is on the wrong board, could a moderator or admin please move it for me.

Read the post title and thought "oh no, not another Eragon bashing" - turns out its not :lol:

 

Well, i've read both books (several times), there sitting on my book shelf right next to WoT, so i guess that means i like them

 

Actually, i'm quite looking foward to the film(s) (and the third book)

i can't find anywhere with the trailer. anyone want to link it? all i found are production photos. and it looks like jeremy irons gets to be brom. that can't be too bad, can it?

it reminded me a bit of the harry potter goblet of fire one. the way they tried to super dramatize it. *shrugs* i am sure i will have to see it good or bad.

It looks identical to the crappy Dungeons and Dragons film they made a few years ago with subpar visual effects, corney dialouge, horrendous costumes, and head scratching set design.

 

In my opinion anyway.

I liked the books, but I agree with Kadere on one thing. For everyone who haven't read the books, Varden are supposed to be armed resistence housed for safety in the kingdom/home of dwarves. And in the trailer they have them dressed like insane jamaicans(no racism intended)! I mean really, who goes to war in long orange, green, leopard, and blue robes??????

Those books are somewhere in my top 5 list, and I'm all kinds of excited about the movie. Especially after seeing the trailer. Of course it won't be EXACTLY like the book... No movie ever is. What matters is if the director's interpretation of it makes a good story. December 15 is a long time! Bah!

i still have issues with certain things in the books, but i wont go into it here

 

however that trailer does look good! Minor problems being I cant stand the English Public Schoolboy accent thats running through films at the moment (Narnia, Stormbreaker and now Eragon)and the likelyhood it will dissapoint like so many others

 

however, film = publicity, and that cant be bad for the genre as a whole

 

 

now where is that Eragon bashing thread?
