I Capture the Castle

After I read and enjoyed the book, I checked out reviews for the movie. They were largely favorable, so I rented it, #57 in my movie challenge for the year. Alas, I can’t recommend the movie. It annoyed me, and diminished my affection for the book. Skip the movie; read the book.

    I didn’t like the movie at all. It was a poor adaptation. I was so disappointed. The filmmakers didn’t get the tone right; it was so serious, it was so dull, it didn’t capture the humor of the book. And that guy — the guy who was Buffy’s boyfriend for awhile? Who played Neal in the movie? Aw, man, he just can’t act. He was so wooden. And the actress who played Topaz — so not right! Sad, sad, sad.
