Movies and Such

The Order of The Phoenix - I have watched all of the the trailers, listened to all of the podcasts and watched the filming clips during Prizoner of Azkaban and The Chamber of Secrets. I think the OTP is going to be excellent. The casting was great - so happy to see Gary Oldman back as Sirius Black (after he's had a good wash ;P ) Umbridge, I don't know, she looks sickly sweet - I need to hear her deliver some lines to see if she can bring off truly evil. I do agree that Dan Radcliffe's hair is too short and neat. But he looks great, he really looks like a fifth year.

Eragon - I am just now reading this because I could not balance that humongus hardcopy version. I bought the paperback last week and look forward to starting it tomorrow. I have 20 odd pages left to read in 24 Declassified. I agree with the podcasters on this too - I now shop the young adult section of the bookstore all the time too. There are some really good reads there. The trailers have been really fun to watch, great shots. I like the dragons forms, they look like serpents. I am a Gryffindor, but I appreciate a well done snake.

Eragon is awesome - you'll love it! Then you must read Eldest when you're done! I can't wait to see Eragon in the theatres - it won't be as good as the book, but it should be awesome.

I love dragons. I have to wait until March 2007 for the paperback release of Eldest. I just cannot handle those big hardbound books anymore. I look forward to it though.
