Spin-off of The Caker Baker's list.
With the Letterboxd crew having recently added the feature of sorting films by rating,…
In his homeland of Alagaesia, a farm boy happens upon a dragon's egg -- a discovery that leads him on a predestined journey where he realized he's the one person who can defend his home against an evil king.
I've always had this belief that if you start a film you should see it through to the end no matter the quality. I've stuck to that fairly rigidly over the years with very few exceptions. A couple of days ago I was broken after twenty minutes of The Internship by Vince Vaughn being Vince Vaughn and the cloying product placement of a certain web browser. Half an hour into this and I was toying with the idea of the off switch, but two failures in a couple of days would be embarrassing, so I persevered.
Now I normally really enjoy watching the likes of John Malkovich and Jeremy Irons who usually elevate even the dodgiest of films. Unfortunately for…
terrible is too kind
A message from 2012 to the future:
If you ever start liking this bullshit, you are forbidden to use computers for a whole year and you can only read Lewis Carroll, Tolkien, Monteiro Lobato and L. Frank Baum.
With all my love,
One star for the cool Saphira design and Cate Blanchett's voice. Other than that... god, why.
To be completely honest with you, I don't really remember wether I read the first Eragon-novel, but I doubt it. But I certainly remember the hype about it at the time, a lot of my friends spoke well of the book and when the movie version hit the screen, I remember it being very high expectations. These expectations was found in me too and when I sat down to watch Eragon, I expected something along the lines of other great fantasy novels at the time.
But much like a wounded dragon, all that went crashing towards the ground when I watched the movie and the underwhelming feeling was enormous. Now it's been a few years, so I decided to give…
1 star for Jeremy Irons. the rest is shit.

mi ha stancato troppo
The first half of this movie sucks to an epic level, with horrible performances and a very bad looking dragon thanks to painful special effects. The second half tries to do an average action movie, and it alsmot succeeds. It's not as bad as the first half.

"A young magician...how quaint."
One star for the hilarious placement of an Avril Lavigne song immediately after the cliffhanger.
