Yeah...if Eoin is still in charge of writing the script, it can't be too bad....

I agree with artymon and Meova. I mean really, Eoin wouldn't want to mess up his own books, right? And plus, even though the Harry Potter movies and Twilight movie weren't very true to the books, they were still awesome if you look at it from the "Let's not compare it to the book, let's just look at how good the acting and special effects and things were" perspective.

We'll just have to wait it out and see.

I disagree. An author writing the screenplay from their own book is not necessarily a good sign. Sometimes their attachment to particular things in the book, or their biased perspective from having written it, can negatively affect the movie. The movie Stormbreaker was written by the author of the book, for example, and the movie was pretty bad, in my opinion, and made barely any money.

To be honest, I expect them to mess it up, and I expect the movie to do badly. I'm still looking forward to it, and I want very badly to be wrong, but the signs aren't good.

Hrmm. Acting and special effects. You can make a movie as good looking and get the greatest actorss of all time in it, but without a good plot (and if its based on a book, FTTB (Faithful To The Book) plot,) no-one will like it.

It's going to suck. Look what happened with Eragon.

*vomits* When I saw Eragon for myself, it was immediately an increment to the 'pile of half 4rsed motion pictures of popular novels.' Two hours of my life wasted.

Unless they make the movie five hours long, it can't be a FTTBP movie. Because Eoin made every small detail count.

Honestly, if a film tanks, it's generally because it's not well made. If that's the case, then you just gotta have a sense of humor and laugh at how bad they messed it up. No matter how good a movie does, there will always be at least a few unhappy fans because it didn't fit the image in their heads, but that's ok. For example, the graphic novel was kind of like having my soul punched in the face given how badly everything matched up to my own expectations, but that's me.

As far as building up a fanbase, I'd say we're doing pretty well for ourselves. We have a group that isn't as large as others, but is much more loyal and indeed, witty. :awesome: and anyway, do we really this to turn into another group of raving fans like twilight, no offense intended. But I would say that if they're gonna do this, it better be done well, I'd hope.

I absolutely swear It Gets Better

"High school is one of the most difficult times you'll ever live through. At that age, you're expected to act like an adult while gaining none of the benefits of adulthood. You are criticized for virtually everything you do by just about every adult in your social and family circle. You're expected to start holding up responsibilities, but under their rules. It is terrifyingly hard. Some people don't make it through. You will.

I wouldn't mind if they messed up a bit - movies that start out as books aren't as good as movies that start out as movies, in terms of the plot. The plot always gets messed up.

But, god forbid, if they mutilate it, I am going to get seriously angry. Messing up is one thing Mutilating it is another.
What? I am so not psycho.
