Fantasy Friday #2 “Legend of Earthsea”

Today’s Fantasy topic is Earthsea. I have watched it at least twice and I am still on the fence on rather I like it or not. I believe that it went to fast for me, there should of been way more time filling in the story line. One day he didn’t know he had magic and then the next day he was a master wizard saving the world. Let’s hear what you have to say.

  1. Honestly, never heard of it. I’ll get back to you on this one.

    What even is this?

  3. As far as I can dimly remember, it wasn’t a total travesty, nor was the book butchered on the altar of “coolness” (Peter Jackson, I’m looking at you!), nor did I slept over it, so I guess it’s okay :D

  4. Yeah, I have no idea what this is. Never heard of it.

  5. Never heard of it.

    Wow, I didn’t think so many people has never heard of it. If you have Netflix I believe it is on there now. It was not that bad of show. You will see a lot of faces on it that are on shows on the Sci-fy channel. It wasn’t that bad of movie, the acting was better then a lot of fantasy shows.

  7. I never heard of it either. Will have to see if I can find it here in my neck of the woods (Brazil) in order to give you an opinion.

  8. Earth Sea, like so many other fantasy/sci-fi series and mini-series, was held back more by the lack of faith the producers/distributors had in its ability to be successful than by a lack of interest from viewers. I watched this show a couple of times and thought it was decent. If the makers of this film had, at every level, determined that they were working on something successful, then I think they would have had a good show. Heck, they might have had a great show! But no, the producers, writers, directors, and even the actors all knew they were only making something small-scale that wouldn’t do anything other than pay some bills for a little while. Anyways, that’s my bit. lol

  9. Still haven’t seen it, but the first three books are classic (the hell with the fourth.) I can’t believe so few people have heard of them. Ah, the perils of getting old.

  10. Wasn’t that a Hayao Miyazaki movie? ( excuse me if i spelll the name wrong)
