Meh. Min of the later series of the book sounds like one I'd fall for.

Min is ok when she is being supportive of Rand. She's certainly more likeable than most of the other manipulative female characters in the series. I like her now that she's not such a tomboy.

I was pretty sad when that Queen who liked Mat died.

Hahah Matt is like my favorite character, next to Rand.

Yeah, Mat is pretty cool. Rand is my favourite, as well. I like Perrin, but he lets Faile control him too much.

I hope they make it into a movie.

Yeah Faile wears the pants in their marrage. I'm sort of hoping they don't make it into a movie. They might mess it up like they did Eragon and theirs so much detail they would have to add in. i'm just not sure...

Eragon was a trainwreck before it got to the screen, or even the screen writers typewriter. I'm only reading the latest book out of a morbid fascination with how awful it can be...

I'll read it if I can get it from a library, but there is no way I am paying money to buy it. It was a dodgy, modernised LOTR, and I can't even pronounce the author's name. Plus Eragon wasn't even hot!

I'm thinking Wheel of Time could be alright if it were made into a series of films or shows, not just one. the only thing that would be hard to do would be the channelling scenes. How would you do the threads of elements, etc? It would be weird if the audience could see them but not other characters in the films.

Yeah my thoughts exactly, not to mention there would be like more than four movies even if they put books together, and you know how sequals usually turn out...

So . . .

What would happen if Rand Al'Thor and Luke Skywalker had a throwdown?

so tru, Yahtzee said something friggin funny on the subject fo Luke's lameness

something along the line of (and Im paraphrasing here) "Dude off SWFU can pwn stormtroopers for breakfast, and Luke can only move his lightsabre an inch if he squints at it hard for an hour!"

I think Wheel of Time could work really good as a tv series. As long as it doesn't turn out like the Sword of Truth series.*shudders*

I haven't seen that series. I'm guessing it's not any good.

A pilot for A Song of Ice and Fire (execellent series, well worth reading) in production. It looks promising.

It's not, in my opinion anyway.

And apparently Universal Pictures has an option on the rights to do The Wheel Of Time movies. Link
