And owch, banana....


French are out (needs strong accentuation of the letter "R". I'd probably suggest German or Austrian or something like that.

How bout we just make it a movie like the Incredibles. All computer animated? That way we can make the characters as we like. Just need to find voice actors then!!

Here's what I said on Movie Call....


Yes, I have to agree. I metioned this type of thing on another forum and someone replied and said that I would likely get banned from here.

I'm sure it would be cool to have a live action version of the books, but doing an animation would make...it easier.

The characters are so hard to match up with real actors. By doing it with animation/pixar/whatever type stuff then we could have the characters closer to their actual descriptions. The action sequences could be more easily done as well as creating any of those hard to imagine characters.

Just my two cents on that...Please don't ban me!

Lets wait and see I guess....

Somehow Drizzt came up in a comic book fight in the Comic Book vs. Forum. So I advertised this thread...

Well, hello all, I'm just forwarning you, I skipped right to the end of this post. Since this apparently started as a 'Where are all the Salvatore fans?' thread I'm going to stick with that.
I have to ask, am I the only one who liked Drizzt best as either the Hunter or doubting himself? I mean, he was always too smug about 'acknowledging' himself, and being right, it was almost sickening. Now he realized, or should have, there is a demon inside him, and that is what I like. emotional angst inflicted upon oneself

Hmm, I see. Well, they are making Homeland into a graphic novel. Or I think that's the one they're doing. My resource is the message board on his site. Which by the way, I have not been banned from. wink

I don't have a fav "Drizzt". I personally like reading the books to see what kind of new character development will be done. Drizzt is a growing character still, and I fell in love with him from book one!

I actually liked younger Drizzt the best. The loner/rebel in Menzoberranzan, but not the Hunter yet. Though I dunno, the fights are always better with the Hunter, but Emo just pisses me off a lot, so...

I didn't mind "defender of justice" Drizzt. That side of Drizzt is always very set into his ideals. The first Hunter experience was out of necessity, which I thought made Drizzt absolutely badass.

The second time was basically out of grieving for his friends, which was a direct consequence of the strength of Drizzt's ideals from "defender of justice" Drizzt. He was forced to face the end result of the fact that he will outlive his friends, and that, coupled with the pain of failure, scared him into a state of instinctual survival. I didn't like that as much, because part of the Drizzt I liked was that he was never one to let something like fear affect him so. In essence, Drizzt was pissed at the world and was going on killing spree until 2 elves showed him the error of his ways.

There you have it folks, my wordy words of wisdom on the Hunter...

As to Drizzt simply doubting himself, that just makes him more human. The huge swings like the return of the Hunter didn't work as well with me, but the littler things, like killing drow and such, were just part of character depth and development. And even in regards to the Hunter, this is Salvatore's character, not mine. And it does make him a hell of a lot more relatable.

And oh yea, my new sig kicks ass, don't you agree?

I suggest starting with Streams of Silver. Though it isn't cronologically first it is the first book published....you get a better feel for all the characters by reading it first instead of just Drizzt in Homeland!

I'd personally start with the Crystal Shard over Streams of Silver, cuz that's the first one Salvatore wrote. It just seems like it would be less confusing starting at the same place as Salvatore intended. Though of course, I started with Homeland and built up my Drizzt fanboyness before even meeting Bruenor and the rest, so...

Oi! Did I make a mistake! Oh dear! Maybe it does go Crystal Shard first....Oh my oh my! I can't believe I did that!

Well, we have enough Drizzt fangirls/fanboys out there so no need to subjugate the world to another :P

I'm terribly sorry for my mistake. I suppose I should have looked at my books to see which came first....I just thought...well, I thought wrong that's all there is to it!

So very sorry sad
