Yes, Texas Chainsaw Massacre was banned for a long time in Germany, but this is not a reason for not knowing it! That a film is banned, doesn't mean that nobody talks about it, y'know. Sorry, Marcus, aber mit dieser Aussage hast du dich ganz sch

Germans: They only people that can approve of mass genocide, but not a movie based in Texas. I guess things must have changed by now, and german guy above how'd you get that spiffy umlout over your 'O', ?

seriously. it's too soon for a fat naked man to be wrestling someone on film. i can't take it.
July 22, 2006, 4:50 a.m. CST
Keep it in your pants. The way you were describing that wrestling scene, I thought I was reading a Danielle Steel novel. Sounds funny though.

With effects the way they are, with all the talent currently known and waiting to be tapped, the movie they want to make is fucking "Eragon?" One of the most wretched books to come out in the last decade?
July 22, 2006, 4:55 a.m. CST
nothing primes me like the anticipation of hot hairy fat foreign man on man action.

who got to be in the same room as Borat. Sacha Baron Cohen is a genius.

1. I felt like I WAS reading something written by a gifted teenager when reading "Eragon". Though I still enjoyed it. 2. I'm crossplaying Durza. :P 3. Where is that trailer going to be attached? I was a little disappointed when I went to see "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" and the only new trailer I saw was one for Eric Bana's new movie. 4. I love "Reno 911!" and will see this movie. 5. Sasha Baron Cohen is NOT FUNNY. Just my opinion.

Typical women. Can't take a joke...Kidding! ;) But seriously- Borat is the most hilariously sexist man ever!

Not trying to pick on a 14-year-old prodigy or anything, so I'll blame his editors, who should have pointed out hundreds of problems to be corrected before the final draft was accepted. A movie that follows this book can't possibly be good.
July 22, 2006, 8:30 a.m. CST
...had me laughing big time. The actual movie is going to kill me.

He is 23. When Eragon was published, he was 20. No publisher picked it up, so his rich parents just published it themselves, and now we're all being force fed his little fantasy shit. Complete with shitty Hollywood movie. We've gone from Tolkien to this poser.
July 22, 2006, 10:59 a.m. CST
It's a shame that took it down. And it's a shock that nobody had captured it when it was up. Nobody has a link?

I read an review on a preview screening (it might have even been on AICN) that explained that Pathfinder was entirely PG13 material - and gore-free. If this is rated R with top notch Viking-Indian brutality, I'm fucking SOLD.
July 22, 2006, 12:16 p.m. CST
There were at least 2 reviews from test screenings that said the film was PG-13 material all the way and essentially sucked balls. Maybe they tested it in a PG-13 version, found out that people were less than thrilled with it and now put the gore back in to make up for the other terrible crap in it - like the sled-chase down that mountain. Or maybe they cut that shit out as well even though it was in the trailer.
July 22, 2006, 12:22 p.m. CST
Where is that unrated DVD anyway? The R rated version is so obviously cut in a few scenes (Pepper's death, what's-his-face gets legs sawed off after impalement on lamp) that it's funny. Every other crappy horror film and even every crappy comedy gets an unrated release so why not this one too? What's New Line waiting for?!? People would double dip the shit out of it!

Why the fuck is a white guy the god damn hero!? God forbid the make the hero a native america. such bull shit.

I read both the books, and thought they were decent. The first book left me with a greater sense of anticipation than the second one did. If I recall correctly, someone already pointed this out in an earlier talkback that mentioned Eragon, but the books straight rip off Star Wars in plotting and characters.

I think it was in Entertainment Weekly of all places, but they suggested a remake of the Alexander Loyd series with Jamie Bell and Evan Rachel Wood. Not sure about that casting, but a remake could be great. I'm kind of a sucker though for 80s animated fantasy. Loved Dragon's Lair, and I still want a movie based on the Dungeons and Dragons TV show (which BTW kicked the live action movie's ass). I can't see Eragon changing anything. Read the book and yeah, it's a shameless Star Wars rip off from start to finish. I have no doubt in the sequel Eragon learns that the Evil King or the Shade bad guy or some other villain is his dad or uncle or other relative. I can't see that source material making a good movie. I still say it'll feel like Dragonheart meets Willow only not as good as either of those bad movies. And again, this from someone who remembers the Black Cauldron fondly!

if i ever see the kid who wrote that pile of poop in real life i've shank him! hehe just kidding, but seriously, to all you folks out there with your unpublished masterpiece growing dust beside your computer just get your parents to publish it for you... and watch the retarded americans flock to read some kid's drugged out cocaine addled fantasyfest.
July 22, 2006, 6:59 p.m. CST
from Eragon my mind went straight to Dungeons and Dragons. This is one I'm gonna skip.

is alright for some teenagers work but as someone above pointed out, it is very unfocused, he changes antagonists 1/2 through the book, and his original quest is never fully settled. I never saw the Star wars ripoff but man I can see it now, clear as day. A buddy of mine, his wife read it, she's into Harry Potter, etc, so I read it on his recommendation and I was "it's alright"...read the sequel and it's a little better but yeah, Star Wars ripoff, anywaysI have no idea why I'm writing other then to comment on this book

I've felt that way ever since he was in that Madonna video. I'm baffled as to why he keeps getting work... Anyway, I was reminded that Irons did way too much overacting in "Dungeons and Dragons" and hopefully he toned it down. And yes, now that you all mention it, "Eragon" does sound like SW. But it's ok because I love SW and that copied a lot of influences as well.

It's showing at the Traverse City (Michigan) Film Festival on Aug 4 + 5. This sounds hilarious and I can't wait! The director is supposed to be at the showing - not sure if he's going to have a discussion about the film or not. I've got an extra ticket - anyone want to buy it before I put it on eBay?

Each their own, I guess, though. And WTF is this ERAGON shit? Sounds too much like Aragorn if you ask me.

He did. Not the emperor, but his right hand man that he convinced to turn against the Dragon Riders is his dad. At the end, the guy who had been his friend but disappears reveals that they're brothers and that he was their dad.
