I Suffer Without My Stone
« on: June 12, 2015, 01:40:30 AM »
Oh yeah. The movie of Eragon is awful. I'm watching it now on HBO On Demand because, well, I can. I actually got a kick out of the books, though I only read the first two.

I know some folks here love Paolini, and I'm cool with that. But is there any room to love this pathetic film? Unless it's just to bask in the cheesiness of John Malkovich. "I suffer without my stone. Do not make my suffering continue." Fantastic.

And someone tell me, did Saphira really quadruple in size in a three minute timespan while flying through a lightning storm?

Fun fact: Paolini was supposed to be in the movie as a bit player; said he wanted to be a soldier that got his head chopped off. Pretty sure that would've made the movie so much better.
