What's so reportable about this thread? Sure, it's a little strange the english, but unless it has broken a forum rule, threads should be given a chance to live.

AT LAST!!!! A thread in which to rant!!! You brought this on yourself:

Eragon was the worst drivel I've ever read in my life!!!He just ripped of loads of other, better fantasy writers like tolkien,eddings and feist. The only reason he got published is because his bloody parents are publishers! The book was full of words that were out of place, words that he obviously just stuck in because he thought they sounded good so he looked them up in a dictionary to see where he could inject them in.

Also, the bloody fainting!!!!
He faints like a gazillion times in the book!!!!

Fainting is a very poor cheap thing that crappy authors use to have a quick transition from one scene to the next, it requires very little effort, and it was so annoyingly obvious!!


...didn't watch the movie. I have it though for some reason, but I don't think I'll be watching it. If I do I'll be back to rant some more

talkingtaco5 said it all
i'd just like to add that the movie was even worse. not only did they cut half of what little there was in the book, they jumped around so much it was just a crappy series of unrelated scenes.
good special effects but special effects don't make a movie.

I loved the book but hated the movie. The casting was horible (with the small exception of Jeremy Irons) the acting was awful, the costuming looked like trash leftover from Mardi Gras, the scriptwriting workedlike a fifth graders compatsition, and the CGI was not really used to it's potential. It seems the people who wrote it ignored most of the plot, character descriptions, and growth in the book and opted instead for what they thought was cool. I was most disspointed with Arya. The actress seemed too flirty and airheaded. Actually the only acting I saw was attempts by Jeremy Irons to get into the character of Brom which were ultimatly surpressed by his insipid lines. I just hope that the Golden Compass doesn't turn out the same way.
