So I finally got to watch this <- movie, City of Ember. It was ... good. Yes, I have found out that my expectations were a little too high, but that's just how it goes.
As everyone says, "The book is always better than the movie." In this case, that wasn't the whole truth.
From the beginning of the movie, I knew it wasn't going to be the same as the book which put me into a mood. The mood: distracted. The whole time, the book was going through my head and the only thing I could think of were all the things the directors and writers did wrong.
It was nothing like the book.
So I looked at it in a different angle.
Both movie and book were great, really, but just didn't go together.
The only things that were the same were a) the characters b) the setting c) the plot.
So, as you can tell, I have a lot of different feelings towards these subjects.
What I want to know is:
Did anyone else see the movie or read the book?
If not, what other movies were "distracting" because you read the book before you watched it?
