Eragon

We saw the movie two nights ago and I have to say it was even worse than I expected.

If you read the book and enjoyed it, don't bother with the movie. If you like movies that are a quick jaunt from point A to point B with no character development, than you will enjoy this movie.

They left out major characters and events, more than was necessary to condense the story for a movie. It was like watching the third Harry Potter movie, but not even that good!

What a disappointment...

Thanks for the warning! The Artist has been asking about the movie. I prefer to have her read the books first and we have not gotten a copy from the library yet so I have put off reading reviews of the movie.

I totally agree. I finished the book right before the movie came out. I found myself filling in the blanks and telling my companions about the discrepancies. Have you read the sequel, ELDEST? If you haven't, would you like a copy?
