Wow. This was definitely one of those movies that I could TEAR apart the differences between the book and the movie.
The movie was good too. The book was better.
- This movie was quite a bit more scary and intense than the books. I could totally see some younger kids who loved the books be kind of frightened by the movie. (That being said, I thought some of the characters that were digitally created were pretty fantastic.)
- One can read the book, and then watch the movie and get basically 2 completely different stories! While the basic plot frame (like the general idea of plot) is the same, there are few similarities otherwise. Which I can't decide if I like or not.
Overall, I thought it was a very enjoyable movie. I think I'm going to have to stop reading a book then immediately watching its movie counterpart...I spend to much brainpower picking apart the differences rather than just enjoying the experience.
So have you read the book and seen the movie? What are your thoughts? I'd love hear them. Leave a comment!
