Well, if there's one thing I can say with utmost confidence about the The Dark is Rising movie, it's this: it doesn't make sense. At all. Also, it sucks.

It was on TV so I was watching it with my sisters and it left me feeling like I had to defend the book. Neither of them had read it. I couldn't even explain what was going on because I had no idea what was going on. I couldn't even tell which sibling was which (which one was James, I ask?) and the acting was, uh, pretty bad. And where's the mythology? And what the heck is with the spirals?


Whoever it was who warned me away from watching it at the cinema -- I think it was [livejournal.com profile] bottle_of_shine -- you have my heartfelt gratitude. XD


I shall commence re-reading the book to get rid of the icky feeling the movie has left me with.
