I watched Eragon with two good friends at a late hour last night. Fortunately / unfortunately I have read the novel beforehand.

Travesty! Travesty! It felt like the whole movie was a parody of the novel. Everything has been changed/butchered! Really, really changed! The scenes felt rushed. It was filled with really corny lines. By my friend's high standards, it's only saving grace was the CGI animation.

LOL, of course, you need not take it negatively. As a friend of mine puts it, a crappy movie makes good conversation fodder and is more memorable. And you need a substandard movie now and again to make subsequent good movies more enjoyable!

Maybe I'm being too biased. Well, don't take my word for it. Watch the movie and judge for yourselves. Then we can all joke about it later!

ok. we can always take it from virgoan critics. They'll dice and butcher the reviewed work until there's nothing left. :P
