It is “Inconceivable!” that anyone would dislike this masterpiece. The novel: delightful. However, the film leaves the viewer feeling as if his or her needs were answered with, “as you wish.” ❤️

“E.T. home, phone.”
I cried hiding under the seat of the theater when this film originally came out. Soon, my friend’s mom quietly, gently, settled me in her lap. I will never forget the lessons taught to me that day by an unreal alien on a screen that made the reality of life all too real.
“He was looking for a Canadian quarter in the grass. Is that what you’re looking for?”
No Becky: it’s not what I’m looking for at the end of this film. I am looking for an answer as to why that key was like ‘my precious’ from LOTR.
Acting: Actor Lulu Wilson (Becky) played a decent ‘Kevin’ from “Home Alone” meets ‘Jason‘ from “Friday the 13th”. Kevin James, however, I just kept seeing ‘Paul Blart’ trying to be a mean guy,…
“Eragon”: if you look into the history of this word (title), it literally means ‘era gone’. As for the film: it was a fun, cute film that would be good for a family film night.
However, what was most impressive was that the film was based off of a novel written by a fifteen-year old. The amount of research this young author invested into this tale was unreal especially in the area of linguistics. Overall: Worth watching at least once.
