In retrospect I think [url=http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0423524/:uh9uwks0]Alejandro Jodorowski[/url:uh9uwks0]is the right man for the job. His movie "The Holy Mountain" clinched it for me. Plus he made a movie called "Tusk"!

He also wanted to direct Dune. view post

I started reading the WoT last fall, and god help me, I was hooked. I'm living in Taiwan, so the selction of english-language fantasy books was pretty scarce but still...
I really liked alot of elements that were in the books, but around the seventh book or so, something awful started to happen. The spell was just broken for me, and by the time I hit number ten (god help me) I felkt like a soap opera fan, who watched out of comfort, not for any redeaming artistic quality whatsoever. Anyway, my biggest problems were,
1. Pacing. Perrin is looking for his wife now for, what is it? Two books? Three? He's found the Aiel? Two books to find em? Oh for christs sake...
2.Just a general childesness. I'm not looking for erotica or anything, but how long did it take for anyone to get laid? Rand is running the wrold, and until the last couple books, I could count on one finger how many times he got laid. Not my biggest issue or anything, but this kind of kids book behavior can really make a book unbelivable to me.
3. WAY to much description of things that don't matter.
"Egwene hurumphed and smoothed her skirt. She seemed angry.
Nyanaeve(?) tugged on her braid. 'Is Egwene angry?' she wondered?
She continued tugging on her braid as she looked at the beautiful dress Egwene was cloaked in. My, how beautifully Domani silk suits she she mused. Suddenly Egwene began brushing her hair, her expression seemed paind. Nyaneave wondered how she was dealing the pressure of these dark, dark times..." continues like this for 23 pages.

I feel ripped off. This is like Jar Jar all over again for me...[/quote:2chju9fj]

Well two thousand amazon dot com people can't be wrong. I started reading CoT , like many others more out of habit, like watching a car wreck. It's not that its not a good book - it never really was - but at least it was a good read to begin with. This is Stephen King level, not Tolkien level.

I for one won't be reading the rest. Life is way too short. view post

That was another one I was thinking of. Fitzcarraldo is great! view post

I've been thinking of writing a PoN parody - what do you think would be the best title? view post


Okay so the People have spoken! posted 27 June 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionOkay so the People have spoken! by SymeonHaecceity, Peralogue

People would really rather have an enema with Mountain Dew than read Robert Jordan's next book according to our scientific poll.

'Bout freakin' time!

I just knew that Tom Cruise had dark Jedi powers - how else to explain a successful acting career with no acting abilities whatsoever.

Nobody can explain Keanu Reeves too me, tho. view post
