Lately I have engaged myself in reading the 'Inheritance' trilogy by Chrisopher Paolini. Halfway past the last book, it sprang into my mind that a while ago, a movie was made from the first book. Curious as I was, I ran 2 miles to the videostore and rented the dvd named 'Eragon'. As soon as I got home, I dropped myself on the couch, dimmed the lights and turned it on. I was filled with expectation as well as anticipation for I had gravely enjoyed the books. However, I cannot recall ones dissapointment to have ever been greater than mine. I mean... COME ON!!! Flabbergasted is what I was.
It all seemed to start quite well, but in only two minutes the movie destroyed every single trace to the book. Now does that make it a bad movie per se? No. But it still was. Anyways, I am furious. The people who made this one probably didn't even read the book and it appeared to me as if it was made by a bunch of incompetent inbread pigs with their heads stuck up their own arses. For example; they didn't even get the dragon right. For god's sake it's what the movie's all about. They could've just made Saphira look as she is described in the book, but no, it was like they took a used tea bag from the litter and made tea with it only to pretend that it would still be the same tea just because it came from the same bag. At first it seemed that they had twisted some minor details but in fact they diverted the whole story. Including some pretty major parts.
In whole, the movie sort of rushed through a lame recap of the story. Since this is my first review, I find myself having trouble with giving good argued critisism, so please everyone, find out for yourselves.
For those of you who have seen the movie but not read the book, please do so, it is actually a great story. For those of you who have read it, please don't watch the movie. It'll piss you off endlessly.
For those of you who haven't seen the movie nor read the book. Read the book, leave the movie. Or watch the movie and agree with me. For those of you who have read the book and seen the movie, you will find yourselves not being able of doing anything but agreeing with me.
I propose we execute those who have so shamelessly raped this beautiful story.
With kind regards,
