Quoted for truth.


The books were amazing, and the movie sucked terribly.
I went to see it with my friends, we laughed and yelled at it so much, that people complained about the noise and we were almost kicked out of the theater.  Undecided

*Agrees with this site*

I thought the book was terrible. No offense to anyone who likes it though. And for you lazy peoples too lazy to lazily look around the site...

Story Outline of Eragon/Star Wars

A boy of foggy origins lives with his uncle in a remote place of a vast empire headed by an evil Emperor and his right hand man, who was once prominent in an ancient order of guardians with mystical powers.

Through fate or luck, depending on your point of view, this boy comes into the possession of an object vital to a rebellion against the Empire; this object was inadvertently sent to him by a princess in the rebellion, who had attempted to send said object to an old man who once belonged to the same order of guardians as the Emperor’s right-hand man.

This boy seeks the old man to learn of the ways of this ancient order, but eventually has to return to his uncle’s farm, which, the boy finds, has been destroyed by fire, and his uncle killed. The boy then sets off with the old hermit, who also gives him a sword which belonged to his father. As they travel, they train. The boy meets up with a rogue who is full of surprises, but turns out to be fiercely loyal, for all his proclaimed selfishness. The boy also begins "seeing" a beautiful woman imprisoned and in need of help.

The boy decides that he needs to rescue her, even though he doesn't know her; further, he thinks of her only as beautiful (Luke's first words are, "Who is she? She's beautiful?" Eragon can't stop thinking about her beauty). Long story short, the old hermit dies to protect the boy, the boy and the rogue help the beautiful damsel escape.

They then set off to the rebellion to give important information and return the object which the princess had sent the boy. They were followed by the Empire, and prepare for a giant battle that will either save the rebellion or annihilate them.

The boy proves his worth with heroics during the battle, but his crowning achievement is his destruction of a noun of much power that has the ability to destroy lots of things. The boy is aided in this by one of his friends, who arrives at precisely the right moment.
The boy is lauded a hero.

The boy has a hallucination of a powerful master who can teach him more of the ancient order. The boy travels to the powerful master to learn the ways of the ancient order's mystical power. While there, he grows very powerful. While he is away, the Rebellion regroups in a new area.

Just when the boy is on a roll with his training, and has grown very powerful, he has a vision of his friends in great danger. He decides he must go to help them. His master warns him not to go. The boy promises that he will return. He leaves.

He finds his friends just in time and is able to distract the enemy so that his friends will remain safe. He finds out that his father was the right-hand man of the Emperor--his father was the one who betrayed the ancient order and helped kill them.

The boy is shocked and ultimately defeated, but not killed. He finds out that someone dear to him has been taken by evil people, and promises to find this person.

Now, is that the plot of Inheritance, or StarWars?

I agree with JEI that it's not the world's most original story.

Doesn't stop it from being a great book.

I loved both Eragon and Eldest. Great books.

The movie....god the movie sucked. It failed not only as a book-to-movie translation, but if we ignore the fact that it was based on a book, it's still a terrible movie. I mean, they could have screwed up the book-to-movie translation process and still had a decent movie, but they didn't even bother to do that.
Oh well....at least the CGI Saphira looked cool.

The dragon was the only decent part of the movie.

My only problem with the books is that the elves annoy the hell out of me.

And why didn't Arya have pointed ears in the film? She just looked human.

And what the hell was with casting Joss bloody Stone as Angela?

This book was good, but not the best ever. All Stephen King books are much better.

Fix'd

Murtagh nicked Eragon's sword at the end of Eldest, didn't he?

Who else reckons that Roran is going to get the third dragon egg?
