You don't approve them OH?
I think that I generally like the books more, with the exception of LOTR, the books and movies were about the same. The Hobbit I preferred the Movies, which is saying something because I read the book three times in a month before seeing the movie... xD
I find that I usually like the movie to book adaptions more than anything else. If you want to know what I mean, read the Fireproof and Courageous books, they were brilliant.
I'd have to disagree with you, Marvin, I don't think C.S. Lewis would be appalled, except for the kiss in the second movie. They captured a lot of what was in the books, but knowing that they would never compare to C.S. Lewis, they changed the stories a bit. I do agree, I wish that they had gone closer to the books, but saying he'd be appalled? I mean, he was a lover of media... I think that he'd dislike specific elements, though.
