When I stay up to late I get strange dreams. Because really that was weird.
Martin on who will have the last laugh…This is my attitude, if you get pissed that someone says something like this it’s not a spoiler, especially with books that have been around long before films /tv adaptations of it were made, if you want to know what happens read the book first, and honestly reading the book will enlighten you more than the film/tv adaptation cos there are so many emotions portrayed in books that they don’t always show through in films/ the tv show. And 9 times out of 10 the tv show/film change a lot. Either to dumb down for the audience or cos it doesn’t fit to the main plot device. But at the end of the day, it isn’t spoilers if the book has been around forever!!
I say the same thing about people who watch Bates Motel but haven’t watched the original Psycho movie. Like, Norman’s fate is an inevitability. Unless the show decides to do a turn around and just keep him as an anti-hero, disregarding the original lore. But I can see them making him a monster without redeeming himself near the end.
Just a note about dumbing down a book to turn it into a movie that appeals to people. When a scriptwiter/director create an adaptation, they know they only have a limited amount of time to covey they story. While a book has hundreds of pages to explore a multitude if themes, a director has to pick which few themes he/she finds the most important and removes everything else that does not contribute to the communication of those specific themes. It’s about economy, not about dumb audiences. Directors who don’t have respect for the intelligence of their audiences are probably really crappy directors no one likes.
All of that aside. He’s fantastic.
