  • Mood:
I went to see The Hours tonight. It wasn't bad, though it wasn't nearly as good as the book. I was quite curious to see how they were going to do the adaptation, since so much of the book goes on inside the characters' heads. As I'd feared, there was a little too much "telling", especially at the end. That end bit... was not impressive. Poor scriptwriting. Ah well. Generally, it was worth seeing, but read the book first -- I think seeing the movie first would've spoiled the book for me, which would have been a shame, as it has some lovely prose.

And now, to bed with me. Going to try to get myself rested.
