Warning spoiler if you haven't read or seen Eragon and if you are planning to do so....


Spoiler:
Well I had gotten the all the books (that have been released as of now) from a friend... Before I had only read Eragon and had not continued to read the Eldest and Brisingr... And its been some time since I reviewed my memories of Eragon...

So i thought I'd read the first Book again just so as to be able to understand what was going on in the other books...

As of now I reached past-mid, and have reached the part where Eragon and Murtagh escape with the Elven princess. So i finished reading the part that Described the Shade...

Descriptions (over here-earlier in the book it was said that he had wild red eyes too)said that the Shade had wild red hair and an was very very fair... (This I think in my head I translated as white rather than just plain fair)

So when i did make up a picture of a shade while reading, I changed the existing picture of a shade in my Head to that of a clown that had gone Nastily BAD.... Hence now I'm stuck seeing the image of Heath Ledger playing Joker in the Last Batman Movie... Now I keep getting the image of JOker(as mentionned above) whenever I see "a shade" in this book...

Comments????

People who worship Ledger because he played the Joker only show their sheer, mindless ignorance of film.

Playing a comic book villain is possibly the easiest role in any movie.

The character is one-dimensional, predictable, and a stereotype.

Him playing The Joker did not show a single ounce of acting talent.

A nutless monkey can play the role.

If you want to see Ledger be good at acting, watch The Brothers Grimm. Him and Matt Damon put on an outstanding performance in an unappreciated movie by an unappreciated director.

I don't know how you could get the two mixed up. They are very different.

@ Dhampy.. Yeah I know.. I've watched that....I connected my image of shade to that of Heath Ledger not because I felt he's the Best actor or anything. it was just because I felt he played the part of JOker better than anyone else uptil now...

@ Noble.. I think Because the fact that the book Described the Shade as a Character Having an In-humanly wild RED hair.. In the place I live you nearly never see Red-Heads... Its more-or-less like one-in-a-million kinda thingy. Or atleast one in a lakh....
Hence I think thats why I attributed it to that of a Clown. + shade is supposed to be an Evil Guy, Hence the connection to the Joker from Batman series and the connection to heath Ledger because as far as I'm concerned I think he played the Part of Joker better than any uptil now..

I made this thread itself just because I was astounded at the sheer differences and nearly the oxi-moron occuring in my thinking....

I still have no idea how you could the two mixed up.

The shade is so much better of a villan. He even has a cooler name:

A Knight's Tale was actually a good movie. He's an underrated actor. What i mean by that, is he never got enough credit for his other movies, only Dark Knight.

He was overshadowed in A Knights Tale by three things. Rufus Sewell, Paul Bettany, and the fact that the movie was too silly to be taken seriously.
