Just saw an ad for The Seeker -- a Dark Is Rising movie? o_O

My parser is still broken from The Golden Compass being turned into a movie. And that Calvin totally wasn't redheaded in that TV movie version of A Wrinkle In Time.

Dang it, stop ruining perfectly good books by turning them into movies. Hell will freeze over before I buy a movie-cover paperback of any fantasy series.

edit 23 SEP, 1633: here's a detailed list of differences between the book and movie: http://community.livejournal.com/authorblog/5880.html

A quick turn to the IMDb boards made me want to weep. Reading The Dark Is Rising sequence as a little burrito was my first exposure to Arthurian fantasy.

Apparently the actress playing Maggie Barnes stopped reading the series after becoming confused because they were so different from the script (source). At least she didn't pan them as boring or dense, but it's sad.
