I am, too. I hope the horse doesn't get hurt! I wonder what the red wing like part is? Would it be a cape that the knight is wearing? I thought it might be wings on the horse, too, but the knight wouldn't be able to ride the horse, if so. Why would a knight have a cape on, if he's in full armor? Just wondering:)
Yeah, that would be a cape. I wonder if those suits of armor are cold in winter? I would think they would leech the heat right out of your body. Brrrr..
Ah, good reason. If he wasn't fighting dragons, he'd be riding along with the cape wrapped around his armor. Yeah, I can see it!By the way, You've been tagged.
Are you planning on seeing 'Eragon'? I haven't read the series - but the film looks to be great. Frankly - I have been wondering when someone like Peter Jackson would begin filming the ‘Pern’ series. In my mind it’s the best compilation of books about dragons there is. You know - I always wanted to be the one directing a film version of the Pern saga. I felt such a connection to McCaffrey – we both sing; her opera, me musical comedy. She began her career as an actor – so did I. And we’re both Irish! I even had it cast; though that has changed through the years. My original Lessa was Kathleen Beller - with Christopher Tabori the perfect F'Lar. I, believe it or not thought that I could play Kylara – my red hair notwithstanding. Flamboyance is something I have always done well. Now I’d do better playing Mardra – an old broad who doesn’t fancy getting grey hairs. Today were I to cast a film version I’d pick the marvelous Mia Kirshner for Lessa. Mia stars in The ‘L’ word – and amongst a cast of brilliant actresses she shines like a star. For F’Lar – believe it or not Colin Farrell. In between dissipations he’s a formidable actor – amongst the best of his generation. Ah well – unless several million dollars suddenly falls from the sky that particular dream isn’t likely to be fulfilled. Wonderful dragon picture, my dear. You always find such stirring images.
I just love the dragons. I would really love to see the Pern series filmed, if done well. Hey, it only took them three or four tries to do the Ring Trilogy justice, and The Pern novels are such a natural for an R rated series of movies.
