Eragon Stills

Some of the character display photos from the filmed version of Eragon are up for perusal these days. If you're anything like myself you're not all that interested. I mean, the movie's bound to be better than the book, but to what extent? Far more interesting to me is the fact that we have both Jeremy Irons (as shown here) and John Malkovich together in it. Yum. Still, check out the girl in the pointy breast corset. Should the costumer later confess that most of these outfits were inspired by Madonna's Vogue phase, you would not find me particularly surprised.

I didn't care for the book at all. Was I the only one? I only liked Saphira, really.

Oh the book was awwwful. Nobody's gonna argue with you there (except possibly hoardes of 12-year-olds). I counted and found literally fourteen of the chapters began with some version of the sentence, "Eragon woke up". Always a bad sign.

I liked Eragon. And I do have the heart of a 12-year-old. Hehehe. I love the relationship between Eragon and Saphira. I want a dragon of my own. =) So thank you for the news/this link to the movie stills. =)

What's with the flashlight lighting? It's weird.

I suspect it was a request of the actors. Perhaps they were hoping they'd look less silly in poor lighting. Doesn't seem to have worked, I'm afraid.

I loved Eragon and Eldest. I'm 18 and really enjoyed the uniqueness of the books. No other book explains magic as well as Eragon and the genius of the Dragons being linked to the Riders is amazing. And they are just trying to make the picture look cool. It didn't work, but who cares about the pictures, the movie is what matters.
