A Great Movie ?
« on: December 07, 2007, 11:06:05 PM »

The best Book I think to make a Movie would be Into The Dark Realm,,as it doesn't go into
that much for People to enjoy,,seems to cover everything ,, and if it's not done CHEAPLY
and cuts-backs like Eragon was,, I think it would be a great Movie

i'd love to see RoaDK as a movie the most out of the feist books, ofcourse they'd have to make the other 2 movies first but still, that'd be my choice. it'd be sweet if they did it beuwolf style, although the movie sucked the characters looks pretty good not so much the monsters but yeah i think the books would work great with something like that

As a series id like the serpent war to be made into films, is love to see the saaur. But an individual book would have to be ADAS, to see the city and dragon lords at the end would be sweet.

I don't think Into a Dark Realm would be a good movie just because it is in the middle of an central story and would be very confusing, though I admit the settings in the book would be very nice to see on the big screen.

I agree that the best books to be made into a film are either Magician (2 films) as the first part of the Riftwar series or the Serpant War Saga.

I disagree. I think the Darkwar saga will/would be very screen worthy. Just the thought of seeing the Dasati world on screen would be immense. The IaDR book itself would work out well, but not on it's own as a single film. All of the books after Magician would be better suited as a tv series, I feel.

Would anyone apart from us get it though? It starts off with about a thousand suits of armour that walk around, discovered by an asian man who likes oranges and a short wizard with a dark robe, where they are suddenly plunged into an adventure with a man who has the shard of an evil god in him, where they go to an alien world where nothing can be killed easily by them, where they meet an alien who claims to be 'Macros.' I mean, who's Macros? They would ask.

PS. I don't remember the finer points of the series.

Well, if you're going to do the thing you'd have to begin from the start and do it chronologically to save confusion.

I think the serpentwar saga series would be best for a movie,because its so freaking actiony.I understood all of it when I read it ,even though i had just read only the riftwar legacy,so noobs would understand it as well.

I fully agree, they were intensely readable, and the flow of action was non-stop. I wish someone would make a feist movie!!!!! I love the characters. Calis and Bobby, Erik and Roo. need i say more

Hmm, old thread, but why the hell not...

If a movie is made that is not based on Magician, then it should be Prince of the Blood. There is little in the way of magic, so you won't be having to draw on the budget for expensive effects and there is little in the way of a continuous and underlying storyline, very little happens in it that had any effect on the later novels and there is nothing to show that the one god has anything to do with it. It is the one book that is most like a regular story, it introduces us to the established characters (now all grown up), and Nakor as well. It was the first book I read and it wasn't confusing in the slightest, for the most part because the story follows a mostly new cast of characters rather than the old. It and its eventual sequel (which would of course be The King's Buccaneer), would appropriately set us up for the Serpentwar.

Indeed that is what it was meant to do, much better than throwing an unwitting public into Midkemia at the brink of war. It would be confusing for those not yet introduced to the setting to start that far up.

i suppose that is why i had to read TKB.... so lets say PotB and TKB are the first movies, then everyone will  want to know more and then my epic adventure series of the Serpentwar will kick in.  :dragon_red:  I just really love all Rays books, but the characters of that series is what really did it for me! I would love to see how it plays out on screen and what the characters would look like in person.

Its depends on whether or not this discussion is about what book would be EASIEST to make into a movie, or which book would make the BEST movie.

I reckon its probably Magician on both accounts, but youd have to do a a couple of movies just to fit in the key elements of the storyline.   I think, if converted into scripts, that all the feist books (by themselves, not just as part of a series) would be cut down alot just to fit the story into a 2 hour time frame, just like all book to movie endevours.

I dont envy any editor or script writer who would undertake such a mission, as fanboys like you and me will never be fully satisfied, and are bound to find fault with anything they produce. Mainly as no Book turned to a movie has ever really been done justice on conversion.

Having said that, I would love to see POTB as a movie.

They could always split Magician in two, Apprentice and Master. I can already picture the ending of Apprentice: the scene where Pug gets caught by the Tsurani and the Great One giving him that speech, telling him that stupid people don't survive, and really smart people don't have a better chance either... blah blah. Still, I kinda agree with you, if you wanted to fit EVERYTHING in, you'd need two 6 hour movies :P (maybe even more).

Magician is indeed a good choise (if divided in 2).
you don't have to explaine very much,
but it should be directed by a very, very good team (like LOTR, or even better) or else it will be the same as eragon...
