5. I'm really astonished by the idea that you view fidelity to the exact details of a book as the only way to judge a movie.


Its also not an idea, its a fact.



That is not a fact, it is (in fact) your opinion. And an incorrect opinion in my own estimation. Alterations made in making an adaptaion can be either good or bad (or inconsequential for that matter). Turning The Three Musketeers into a steampunk movie was a bad idea (in my opinion). So was tacking a happy ending onto The Scarlet Letter. On the other hand, Akira Kurowawa's adaption of King Lear into the samurai-drama Ran was brilliant.

                                        A good movie can be a bad adaptation (and sometimes vice versa). AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Feb 13 2013, 10:03pm
