Rianna. You are a babbling fangirl go away.



I've been waiting for Legend of the Guardians to come out since middle school. Middle school okay? And this month it finally decided to roll around. It was like: "Hey Rianna, sup? I'm that movie that you kept thinking about :D! GO WATCH ME.

So I watched it. As I expected, they excluded a lot from the books; mostly the gruesome parts, but hey: animated movies are all supposed to be family oriented, it's apparently unspoken law. Or something.
Not that it was bad. In fact I like movie-verse Twilight better than book-verse. (Yes, his name is Twilight. And he was conceived by Lasky before Meyer even had one dream about dem' Cullens. So hush.) The oracle echindna was an entirely new character and he was great too, considering he only had very little screen time.

"HAH I foretold you so!"

And then there was the little eastereggs they stuck in there. Like in the Pelletorium  scene when Jutt instructs the owlets, you can hear him in the background mumbling about the "Forbidden 'W' words"

I was like :D. Because reading about that was loads of creepy for me when I was younger. If you asked a St. Aggies Owl "Who, what, where, when, or why"

- you would be stripped

of all your feathers.

ALL of them.

The only things I was disappointed about were the facts they excluded Twilight's "Orphan School of Tough Learning" speeches, and that they scrapped Skench, Sporn, Auntie, Streak,  Zan, and Hortense from the story entirely.

And the creepy vampire bat song. Oh gosh. I was hoping they'd include that, but they didn't.

And about that last entry: I'm debating deleting it because wargh I can't handle looking at my own spurs of wank. I feel stupid now :l.

wait wait legends of the guardians was book? i didn't know that. yeah and no capitalization here cuz i'm lazy btw lol. so yeah, it was a book? D:

lol i think the really 'inappropiate' scenes from books or in animated movies in general started like ten years ago or something because i remember from really dark movies from disney and other major animators. ff i don't remember the name but there was this one movie about a female mouse who was really ill or something and she wore a red cloak and apparently she was a mother or something and she was looking for some pendant or something and idk it was really dark. :| I watched it as a kid even though it was kinda scary for me. there was blood and everything! maybe it was a Fox movie or something. *goes to investigate*

Yep! The series is actually called "The Guardians of Ga'Hoole", and there's fifteen of em'; the movie only covered the first three.

... I'll have to add this movie to my list of things to watch! It sounds really good the way you described it! Thanks c=.
