I went in with an open mind. In fact, I have been soooo excited about this movie for like a year now! I had countdowns and my friends and I were ready to see it after school the first day it came out! But the majority of us were soooo disappointed!

A ton of things were done of out order! Too many things were left out or glossed over. I agree, it should've been longer. A lot of the colors were wrong... Eragon's hair is supposed to be brown, Arya's is supposed to by black, I think Brom's is supposed to be white... Then, Saphira's wings looked like feathers; not webbing, not leather-like...but feathers?! Her growing in a few seconds was ridiculous too! And then Arya did not have pointed ears...she's an elf, for goodness' sake! And then, they weren't any dwarves. At least that I could tell, they must have been the height of man! I'm pretty sure the Urgals have horns... The Ra'zac have beaks. I don't even think you know that until the second book, or at least you don't really "see" them, because they were wearing hooded cloaks or something? And then, Arya told Eragon she was the princess of Ellesmera, which doesn't even get found out as a surprising element until the second book. And then, she left at the end...which she doesn't do... How are they going to start the second one, if they make a movie out of Eldest?

So, those were just some of things that made me the maddest. ^_^ Sorry, I had to have my little rant... It just really disappointed me, especially after I had waited so long and had gotten so excited about it!

Estelwen Anduril, you have every right to be frustrated. It should have been better and truer to the book. Films are never as good as the book because the imagination is so powerful, but films can still be a great representation ... but this one wasn't.

Hopefully the DVD will be unabridged.

I didn't like the movie. I thought it kinda sucked and they messed it up with the characters and all.

Yes, unfortunately they cut out Arya's and Eragon's dual. It seems they cut out most things that were too difficult to picturise ... and for some strange reason, they added bits into it like Durza flies on the back of a big black rat spirit with giant teeth, at the end of the movie when he fights Eragon and Saphira.

They spend time, money and effort in areas of this film where they didn't have to, which obviously left their budget stretched in other more needed areas ... so they skimmed over them.

If they increased the fights and therefore the violence, I wonder how many of the people who have seen it, wouldn't have been able to?

You should still see the film and make your own mind up ... maybe you'll see something in it that we didn't ... or maybe you'll just have more facts and figures to contribute to this discussion, or advice on how they could make Eldest a better film than Eragon.

Do you think the cast, crew, producers and directors etc of a film joint forums like these, to read what the "true" fans say?

That would be pretty funny :lol:. I hope they do even though it's unlikely. I hope they see how much they screwed up the best book ever made :x !!! I didn't think it was possible to mess up such a remarkable tale but I guess they found EVERY loop-hole :x , EVERY nook and cranny :evil: to screw it up!!! It's like they tried to ruin it....
In other words, I hated the movie so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
:twisted: :lol: I was laughing at the end when Eragon and Saphira almost died. :lol: :twisted:

Let me just say i came out from seeing the movie right now and i have 3 words for it I LOVED IT. A few months ago i read a lot of negative remarks of peole saying how it was going to suck and stuff and i didn't even feel like seeing it. But you know what i went and i saw it and even though it was really messed up in some parts i kept and open mind and just watched the movie like i had never read thebook and it was awesome. So you go see it and make up your mind about. Maybe later you can come here and trash talk it or say how much you loved it. :D

totally agreeing ova ere lol!!
even when people were moaning b4 it came out about how bad it would be i didnt care and couldnt wait!! i thought some things were bad but i got ova it and decided its just as good as any other film which is based on a book and remeber it was BASED on a book meaning it didnt have to totally follow the whole thing through and through.
