It's been a LONG time since I read PC, so maybe it really is as lame as Frederica Mathewes-Green (whom I respect) says it is. But the movie didn't move me either. I wanted to like it and expected to enjoy it (it's gotten good reviews) but found it boringly predictable. Sorry. I felt like I was watching a remake of "The Return of the King" (LOTR #3) with details changed to protect the innocent. Great photography and entertaining enough in its own way, but definitely a movie I'll quickly forget.
But what do I know? I also saw Evan Almighty this weekend (which got HORRIBLE reviews) and found it to be cute and enjoyable. Maybe it's just a matter of expectations.
OTOH: FM-G thought that the LOTR movie trilogy was better than the print version, so what does SHE know?!
