Actually, I'm kind of glad they're not making any more movies. They butchered that one. I mean, that usually happens in the book-to-movie translation, but it was exceptionally bad. The books are FANTASTIC. I think I've read the trilogy about 30 times now.

I have the books..haven't read them yet. The movie was good for being a movie, but I have heard they killed it, much like Eragon.

I haven't read the books.
I really didn't care for the movie... it had great ideas, and a good story line, but it just didn't catch me like i thought it would.

I have never heard of them. I just added them to my Amazon wish list.

liked the books, although the third one, not as much. I haven't seen the movie, and from the above replies, it doesn't look like I should.
