I have to say I haven't seen any of the Sky films with David Jason even though I like him very much as, for Rincewind, he's just not right at all as per the book.Tonyblack wrote:Well said!Conspiracy Theory wrote:Got my copy on DVD today.
I'm about 1/2 way through part one.
I have the following to say:
Yes, there are plot deviations.
People don't look and sound the same way they did in my head.
It's a fun story.
Getting lots of laughs.
As far as pure entertainment value goes, it would be difficult to top.
I intend to watch it again, and again, and again.
I am looking forward to anything else coming out on DVD.
It would be impossible for the film makers to produce a movie that satisfied everyone. If people really want to watch the movie that's in their heads then they need to read the books.
It's hard with the book to movie transitions if you really love the book and know them intimately. My sister is also an LotR freak (worse than me actually) and she still refuses to watch the Trilogy. In a way she's right as the last 2 and especially No 3 really don't cut it at all with all the deviations and omissions but I'm glad I saw them (and in the cinema) as the bits they did get right and especially the locations and set constructions were really breath-taking at times and several times reduced me to tears.
I may watch all of Hogfather and CoM soon - I have seen a little bit of CoM part 2 and that was OK so I'll get to it eventually - bit like reading the Tiffany books
