They definitely dumbed it down for the kids, I think it would have done just as well if they stuck more to the source material. But such is the way of most movie adaptations.Yeah, I made the mistake of seeing it after I read the book, was TOTALLY disappointed. This was his 1st book, I heard his 2nd wasn't as good. I'd be interested in a sequel novel.
Yeah I've hear the Peregrine books are pretty good.
They're worth picking up.
The new Dune adaptation should be interesting
