"napapaadmit nga ako na, "nah, LOTR isn't really the best""
(I had to admit, LOTR isn't really the best)
As fantasy? I don't think so. Try EB White, try CS Lewis, try, heck, try Homer.
"and you say it's a faithful movie. naku, kung ganun ba (if that's the case) it has failed twice?"
I thought it failed three times.
"but yeah, it really is hard to turn a book into a movie especially if it's a big thick one"
I think a filmmaker has to forget trying to please fans, come up with a vision, stick to it, and hope it's a good vision. That's what Boorman did with Excalibur, and to a lesser (but still successful) extent, that's what I think happened with Cuaron here.
