Eragon – The Movie

Eragon: The Movie, or We Have A Feathered Dragon and Jeremy Irons!

Once upon a time, in a galaxy… which happens to be this one, there was a cheesy fantasy book known as Eragon, which combined every fantasy cliche spawned by JRR Tolkien, George Lucas, Anne McCaffrey and quite a few other people.

So because it became pretty popular, they decided to make a movie out of it, especially since the Harry Potter movie series was going on, the first Narnia movie had come out the year before, Twilight hadn’t been made into a boring crappy movie yet, and the Lord of the Rings was already over (and The Hobbit obviously was in production hell).

So is it possible to turn a derivative cheesy fantasy into an okay movie? The short answer is…. no.
