Coming Soon: Eragon

by Jen

Since as long as people have been able to imagine, there has been a sort of love affair with dragons. They have captured our minds, and our spirits and have been beautifully brought to life in countless stories, books and now films. One of the latest incarnations is Eragon. Based on the book by Christopher Paolini, it tells the story of a boy named Eragon and the events that are set in motion when he discovers a beautiful blue…dragon egg.

Now, you’d imagine that finding an egg that would hatch into a fire-breathing creature that can fly might be a bit of a challenge. You’d be right on the money with that, and soon Eragon discovers just how much his life can change with the arrival of a new friend.

This movie will be one worth your time if you liked the Lord of the Rings series, The Chronicles of Narnia or even Harry Potter. The trailer for it looks absolutely breathtaking, and the special effects are outstanding. Created by the teams behind Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, you will feel like you’re riding the wind on a dragon’s back and in the midst of the battle. Oh, and did I mention the story’s awfully good too?

Eragon arrives in theaters on December 15th.

I was looking forward to this movie as I’ve read the books and the previews looked good. My wife I were quite disappointed, they tried to put too much into too little time. Some of the shortcuts were ok, but the movie ended very quickly without a lot of explanation. If you’ve got to see it, try a rental first, otherwise this is a pass. Chronicles of Narnia was much better and Eragon doesn’t even come close to comparing to any of the Lord of the Rings series. JUNK!
