In the movie? Yeah, that annoyed me, too. I forgot to put it in my post. A DRAGON DOES NOT GROW UP IN ABOUT 3-5 SECONDS!!!!!!!!! THE DRAGON BARELY LOOKED ACCEPTABLE!

I hated that too, I don't expect them to make half the movie about Saphira growing, but a dragon simply doesn't grow up in 3 seconds. I still say, what were they thinking when they made Eragon blond?!!! And Arya... aren't her ears supposed to be pointed and elvish? The only character I liked, I think, was Brom. Better than the others, anyway.

I always pictured him as being blond. :?

You did? I think the description in the book says he had brown hair... Here's proof:

"Physical appearance
Originally, Eragon was human of average height, intense brown eyes, dark thick eyebrows and brown hair. Eragon was described sometimes as smallish or more lithe than average. Roran described Eragon as having a slight build in Eldest. He attended the Blood-Oath Celebration in Ellesméra, where he was transfigured into an Elf/Human hybrid by the dragons' magic. His face became more angular, pale, and smooth. His eyes became slanted and his ears became pointed. His speed, strength, sight, touch, smell, hearing, and taste were all augmented to Elf-like sensitivity. He did retain some human qualities, including thicker cheek bones and the need to shave. Most importantly, he was completely healed of his accursed scar on his back.

After punching a soldier in a skirmish and dislocating his fingers, Eragon used magic to grow thick calluses on his knuckes, similar to the Dwarves' Ascûdgamln. This enabled him to punch hard objects with little or no consequence to his hands."

I copied this from http://inheritance.wikia.com/wiki/Erago ... appearance

The thing I didn't like about the movie, was that it seems that they are not going to make a sequel.
I like the books very much. I'm sometimes looking for books, that are about dragons. Maybe anyone has suggestions.
I haven't finished the fourth one. It's in English (my friend sent it to me) and a bit too hard for me to read. I read like hundred pages before I gave up. So I have to wait until Inheritance gets translated.
