Adaption Review: Confessions of a Shopaholic

 

Title: Confessions of a Shopaholic
Release Date: February 13, 2009
Starring: Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy, Krysten Ritter, Joan Cusack
Length: 1h 44min
Rating: PG-13

 

Pros: I liked that they kept the scarf story. I liked that they kept the sale. And I really liked how the mannequins talked to her.

 

Cons: Nearly everything else. This is so different from the book. It's set in New York City instead of London. She works for a gardening magazine and applies for Success Savings which is run by Luke Brandon, which is not what happened in the books at all. Tarquin doesn't appear to be Suze's cousin, although I understand that change.

Adaption Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events

 

Title: A Series of Unfortunate Events
Starring: Jim Carrey, Jude Law, Meryl Streep, Liam Aiken
Release Date: November 17, 2004
Length: 1h 48min

 

Favourite character: Lemony Snicket
Crush: N/A
Least Favourite character: Olaf

 

Mini-review: I see that some of the incorrect details from the show, like the spyglasses, came from this movie, which is fascinating. Honestly, Jude Law's voice was the best part of this movie.

 

Complaints: Where do I begin? First of all, what the crap was this? It wasn't A Series of Unfortunate Events, that's for darn sure. So. Many. Mistakes. Look I'm not a purist, I was able to accept the changes of the show. But dude, this was as bad as Percy Jackson and the Hobbit. 

The train scene never happened, Olaf never legally adopted them nor did he try to marry Violet before the Baudelaires were sent to Uncle Monty (that's what sent them there), Klaus was blind without glasses. Also, Violet tried to save Sunny before the wedding, not Klaus during. And Olaf didn't burn down they're house with a giant reflector, he's too dumb for that.

Big stuff.

Adaption Review: Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure

 

Title: Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure
Starring: Lexi Johnson, Hayley Mills, William Yelton, Amanda Waters
Release Date: January 17, 2011
Length: 1h 44 min

 

Complaints: Literally nothing like the book (either of them because I think it's loosely based off "Mandie and the Cherokee Legend" and "Mandie and the Ghost Bandits") except for the character names and the fact gold is found in an old Cherokee gold mine.

Adaption Review: The End

 

Title: The End
Show Details: A Series of Unfortunate Events, S3.E7
Starring: Neil Patrick Harris, Patrick Warburton
Guest Starring: Peter MacNicol
Release Date: January 1, 2019
Length: 52 min

 

Favourite character: Klaus & Kit
Crush: N/A
Least Favourite character: Olaf

 

Mini-review: Good grief, this was worse than the book. They said "it's been a year the seawall will flood tomorrow," but Baby Beatrice was born on the day or the day after the seawall flooded. So you're celebrating her birthday on the wrong day. 

And how did the fungus not spread to Beatrice after Kit gave birth. It would still be in the air and she's too young to eat apple. 

 

Complaints: So many changes. Ridiculous changes. Because as bad as the book is, it's still canon. This series was going along great until this one. And what is this crap about Ishmael being the found of V.F.D? The schism was supposed to happen when Kit was four. And V.F.D was supposed to have been around for decades before that. Meaning that like Ishmael should be about 200 years old? DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

Mini-review: First of all, who gave Netflix permission to make the Denouement Brothers so attractive?! This was pretty accurate except character changes.

 

Complaints: So each Baudelaire during their duties as a concierge encounters different people from their past. But they changed who everyone met.

 

Violet:

Klaus:

Book: Klaus goes up to a floor to take Sir and Charles from their room to the sauna.

Sunny:

Book: Sunny takes Vice Principle Nero and his teachers to the Indian restaurant and run by Hal. 

Show: She takes Mr. Poe to the Indian restaurant where Larry works. Olaf shows up, challenges Larry to a duel or some such nonsense in the kitchen. Ernest comes in, they tie Larry up and in front of Sunny boil Larry alive in a soup vat.
