I was actually marginally irritated when I saw how good a job they did with the opening sequence of the new Hobbit movie where the dragon comes and wrecks shit because I thought people might draw comparisons with this dragon-based story I did. I actually took a lot of inspiration from David Wenzel's graphic novel adaptation, which is really nicely done.
I think the best dragon stories are the ones that show brains (or at least dexterity) winning over brawn, and as with a lot of fantasy J. R. R. provides a pretty good archetype for this. As for my story - think The Hobbit meets... Inglorious Basterds or something. INTERESTING HUH?
