MURDER! SACRALIDGE! SLAUGHTER!
OK, so maybe that’s going little bit too far but you guys get the general gist of what I am saying.
(actually I am considering changing this blog to shewhoisdifficulttoplease.blogspot ;) what do ya think)
Yoooookaaaaay. I umm…I am sorry but this film totally mushes up, murders and pulverises the book. It does! Completely turns it inside out and on its head. I mean, as a standalone film his would probably be fantastic for those that haven’t read the book. But as I had the book going through my head the WHOLE time I was watching this film it wasn’t quite at the level I had hoped for.
First – Ellie’s dreams. I don’t remember Ellie having dreams?
Second – Will as the Lady of the Lake. Puleeeeze.
Third – some randomer from Ellie’s class as Merlin.
Fourth – since when is a random teacher Mordred.
Fifth – (this isn’t really a plot point) I would totally go for the guy with the attitude problem over the pretty boy Will. Just saying.
Sixth (and worst) – Ellie isn’t even Ellie! I know right! Ellie is ALLIE. Of course she is…
Will was supposed to be Arthur NOT the Lady of the Lake!
A teacher who was a member of ‘The Order of the Bear’ was supposed to be Merlin!
Will’s brother was supposed to be Mordred – yeah, that makes sense!
Name change! Ahhhhh.
I went hyper when I found out about this film (thanks to another book blogger) and I zapped over to YouTube and very nearly did a happy dance around the house at seeing it there. Aaaand then I started it…
So my vote for this on is the book over the film.
