That one guy was pretty cute though, not Eragon, the one with black hair. Wasn't that book written by a 16 year old kid or something? or was that something else? I keep meaning to read the books, but it seems like the movie was bad because the story is just bad, but I really have no idea.
Yeah, the black-haired guy (Murtagh) was pretty cute. And even without the movie, 'Eragon' was a BIT of a rip-off of LOTR. I still like it though, because I've never read LOTR. Only watched it.
Anyways, the story was good, but the movie is bad. Why? Did someone want Stephen Fangmeir as the director for AF?! Lord, have mercy of us all! If Fangmeir made the movie, it'll look like Twilight with short people in it! The horror!
I'd like Peter Jackson. Or James Cameron! You don't just direct 'Titanic', "Terminator', and 'Avatar' without potential.
