This Is A Great Adventure, Nothing Less

I cant believe that people can watch a film without constant comparisons. Who cares how much is spent or how much a film is "hyped" by Hollywood. This film has quality acting, tells a wonderful story, is flawless in effects and has strong emotional force. I have not read the book which may well be effective, but it inspires me , a teacher and storyteller to read it. I watched the film with great joy and excitement. I highly recommend it to anyone that loves a good tale and can leave their self righteousness at home. I want to ride that bear and I want to find out what happens. The critics probably work for the Magisterium anyway. Don't miss it if you love good stories.
