| Should I be sad or angry?
First of all, this movie is nothing like the original book. Secondly, it's nothing like the original movie either. It is a fantasy movie with a completely different story? So why did they use names and symbols from those originals? Now, everybody has expectations and are going to be disappointed. They created new characters and new stories. They should have used new names.

Looking at it as a new story, it still is quite bad. Basically the story is too random. Too many things are happening without a cause or reason.

If you're looking for a deeper lesson or meaning, like in the book: there is none.

I'm sad this movie is not the new fantasy world it could be. I'm angry the makers used an original piece of art to sell their garbage.
