    The Book or movie? Since I´m honestly not going to waste time on the movie either.

    The movie was good. Really enjoyed it and will buy it when it comes out on DVD. Looking forward to the next two episodes.

    Long yes. Boring, hardly.

    The book was much better, (usually is). The trolls and dwarfs in my minds eye were much more fierce than any movie could ever be.

    That’s always the way . . .

    I’ve often used the metaphor of a Mountain when explaining how a “Good” Movie of a book works. You see the Book looks at the Mountain from this side, and a Good Movie looks at it from that side; but both are looking at the SAME Mountain.

    A BAD Movie is looking at a DIFFERENT Mountain. (Like Will Smith’s “I Robot”)

    Looks like it’s going to take more than water to revive Roy.

    Nobody would say that about the book. A common critique f the movie is that IT’S long where the book was short.

    Good Metaphor.

    I actually liked it. Saw it twice. The 3D was fun but unnecessary. What I find is that- while movies sometimes tell the story differently from the book- those changes aren’t always wrong. Sometimes they’re valid- in terms of telling a story on film. Not everything that works in book CAN work on film. And yes, there are always things I might have done differently from what the director did. But in the end, I remind myself: It’s not a replacement for the book. It’s a movie BASED on the book. No more, no less.

    My only critique is you don’t have to put every single page of the book to film. That does tend to make for a long film.
