Hi all,
    Finally had a chance to see the Eragon movie, and went with family, two of whom 
had read the book, and one who had not.  Those who had read the book were 
disappointed, and the one who hadn't said it was apparent even to him that too much 
was left out.  And that seems to be the crux of the matter.  The movie was barely 
over 90 minutes -- why on earth didn't they make it longer, and include much more 
of the plot from the book?  It would have been a much better movie had they taken 
the time to more fully develop the plot -- and they had the time to do it!  And 
agreed, the special effects were very well done.  As it is, given the disappointing 
reviews, we'll probably never get to see the rest of the books done as film.  It's 
really too bad.

"Teachers aren't paid to love children.  Loving children is what teachers do for 
extra credit.  It's not the main assignment - but it's more important than the main 
assignment.  Extra credit is done of your own free will.  Work and love given of 
your own free will is always more joyous, better quality stuff."  Sahara Special,
