The Dark is Rising movie

Is it anything remotely like the books? I really liked the book series when I was a kid.

Yeah, when I first heard they were making a movie I was really excited, but from the previews it looks like they fucked it up. I mean, they gave Will telekinesis and shit. WTF.

Well, the Old Ones did have all sorts of crazy powers.

Yes, but mostly incantations having to do with time and fighting the Dark iirc, not random superpowers (though admitedly it has been a while since I read the books). And I wonder if they mention the whole being immortal thing in the movie.

Well, High King Math et Mathonwy knows no more than I. And I know this movie will annoy me so I will avoid it. :)

Saw it.

SUCK! SUCK! SUCK!

I question whether I should choose between this, or Bio-Dome.

And a great source of factual information it is.

Seriously. I read these books as a kid. I think a more faithful translation would have been better.

I don't like what they did to Merriman, either. I always pictured him as a Gandalf-esque figure, not some old battle-ax. [spoiler]Plus, what is this crap with Will being the Sign of Fire and Tom being alive?[/spoiler]

Nevermind the lack of the Wild Hunt. That was one of the coolest scenes in the book.
