I haven't had a chance to see the movie yet. What didn't you like about it?

Honestly, it was too long, had a story too thin (though my ex said the book was way better on this point) and i think i spotted a few technical mistakes*.

*But i won't bother looking at it another time to confirm or deny.

I enjoyed the movie. Although I will say that my one complaint is the predictability of the movie through overuse of foreshadowing. I felt like they told you what was going to happen far too obviously before it did. It kinda takes the drama out of it all. But it was still a good movie; it's worth watching.

It seems like it'd be hard to make into a film. The book is sort of plodding without a huge dramatic arc like most movies have. Then again, some of the best movies ever (e.g. Godfather) have had that sort of flow. I'll have to check it out...
