    Neil Patrick Harris is a better count Olaf I do say so myself, my reason being is because her just seems to Fit into the part better and seems more comfortable with his character/role in the show

    My roommate and I were both big fans of the book series when we were younger, and I really loved the movie too in spite of its short runtime. We were excited when the Netflix show came out, but only ended up watching the first three books (six episodes).
    It just...wasn't funny. It TRIED to be funny, but wasn't. The performances in the Netflix series weren't as good as the movie's, and the pacing was so strange. I wasn't a fan of the weird colour direction, either, and a lot of the humour was just rammed in there with no regard for the tone.
    As funny as the books could be at times, to me, as a kid, they were grim mysteries first and foremost. Seeing them played as a joke with fourth wall breaks and silly asides just pulled me out of it. It really wasn't for me.
    I like the musical numbers and I appreciate their sort-of-loyalty to the books, but watching the Netflix series just makes me long for what might have been if the 2004 crew had reprised their roles.

    i personally like the tv show more (I haven't actually watched the movie but I dont really need to the video sums it up) while the first season is a bit more comedic the last 2 are pretty dark besides the bullshit fucking ending on the island- and I would suggest making a new comparison but having 3 seasons vs 1 movie that only has content from the 1st season doesn't seem fair enough

    The movie was an unfinished story. Having existed any sequel and it would have been a better match for a comparison with the show.

    I like both, but I like the movie a bit more. Jim Carrey made the movie for me.

    The series was so faithful to the books and they did not skip a beat on a single detail. I must say though, the tone of the movie is what I needed more of in the show. Don't get me wrong - the book had a lot of campy humor which I feel the show had captured. But the movie really captured the emotional depth and the darkness of what was really going on. Jim C terrified me as Olaf. For some reason even apart from his comedic approach, the way he portrayed Olaf made him seem like he could snap at any moment. It was great. And visually, let us be honest - the movie's atmosphere was superior. If the movie was able to extend out into multiple films and they were given more time, I really feel the overall feel of the movie would have been better fitting. I appreciate both for what they are and we were lucky to have even gotten two interpretations.

      I agree so much! I love the show and I'm happy the books are adapted so well, but movie Olaf was terrifying.

  • Milena Letic

    I love the series I think that Neil Patrick Harris actually plays Count Olaf better. In some parts of the series the kids hint that they are a little jealous of one in other like in the submarine with Fiona where Violet tells Klaus that she doesn’t trust her after they start flirting
    I also just finished watching the whole entire tv series and the whole concept is darker than the movie. The one absolute thing that bothered me was Mr.Poe’s coughing. How utterly annoying. I actually liked the whole concept of the tv show more than the movie and that the children went other places and the triplets they met and the trouble they had gotten into and.....I’m writing to much. But the “Lemony Sniket” was a funny guy even though I had a tough time wondering was era the whole thing was in. I’m genuinely surprised that I have written this deeply about a tv show. This is BY FAR the best Netflix series and I don’t care what people say it’s my opinion. I haven’t seen anything this good in a while.

    The series because when a series is longer with more humor more sorrow and lasts so much longer, yes I hated to see that it ended very sad for me I loved that series, but it brings me to love it more for its length and detail and the other key components

    The movie was what made me watch the series.I remember the movie had all those great things like being dark and the book thing with Claus.But the series series was funny and the narration was epic.I believe that it is not quite the movie and the series you should be looking but for the story which is illustrated differently in both the TvShow and movie.

    I haven't read the books but what I heared, the series make a way better job of showing the theme of the books. Still, I prefer the movie because of the way they dealed with it. Everybody shits on it because it is not the same as the books, which is just unfair.
    They had three storylines and tried to press it into a movie. Where is the problem that they made their own theme to it? I think it fits.
    A series of Unfortunate Events works as originals and it also works with the movie's adaption.

      just because the movie didnt replicate or try to match the books perfectly doesnt mean it’s worse than the netflix series. i personally enjoyed the movie because of the realistic human quality, and the interesting cinematography

    I've thought about this when comparing Hannibal the movie verse the TV show, and a friend pointed out the fact that with the TV show that there can be more nuance. After watching Hannibal the TV show, Anthony Hopkins looked cartoonish... but the first time I saw Anthony Hopkins I thought he hit the nail on the head. You do point out some great differences, but there is also the fact that the tv show has... well, time. I liked the musical number. I read the books and thought the series was more in keeping with the tone of the books but that the movie... yeah, it was good too. Movies have less time, they have to be punchy-er.

    The show is a lot better compared to the movie, because at least in the show they didn't have Beatrice and Bertrand be the leaders of VFD, rushed adaptations (except for The End), have Olaf be a non-threatening villain, the characters' outfits being so de-saturated that you focus more on the background than the characters, and the entirety of the train scene.

    the way each character acted, like Mr. Po and Olaf, really annoyed me throughout all of the seasons in the tv show, but something about it made me always want to watch another episode and see what happened next. In the end, I feel like something is missing in my day to day life, and I sometimes think back and wonder if I should go back and rewatch the tv show again. For the movie, I was very young when I saw it and I never really understood it. Did anyone else have this same experience?

    *I SWEAR I WAS SO DISSAPOINTED WITH THE MOVIE! I LOVED THE SHOW SO MUCH MORE THAN THE MOVIE!* s just because I was so confused in the movie! And I thought they would have at least 15 minutes for each book? I also prefer Neil Patrick Harris's Count Olaf because he was a better fit for him. And I think Uncle Morty didn't die in the movie? Which I was very confused on. Like wHuT and I was very disappointed when they ended with the first three books. I wanted to see Esme and Carmelita!

    The movie is miles ahead and does a well job and compressing the story. The series feels cheap and as if it’s trying to be satirical and absurd but misses the mark of comedy with that. The tone also feels lost and pointless there’s no subtlety no beauty and is more enjoyable to children as oppose to the mix audience that could enjoy the film

    I would suggest watching the last season of the Netflix show. Once you completely finish it then I assume you would have a better review considering there is so much more to compare. For example the show doesn’t end with the musical number, it ends with Lemony Sni -e̶n̶d̶i̶d̶i̶s̶u̶e̶g̶e̶b̶j̶d̶i̶i̶x̶u̶d̶v̶-

  • Super Mario Blake SMB

    The actors in the show are better, especially Klaus because in the movie he doesn’t even wear glasses. But the movie was more like what Lemony Snicket probably wanted, it’s more dark and unfortunate, but what’s the title called! A series of UNFORTUNATE events. They are not supposed to be lucky, the kids are always unlucky thanks to Olaf.

  • HappyPills

    I personally think Olaf is better in the show, he has the sad satyrical vibe like ice king from adventure time, making him feel like an emotional flip switch that makes the audience feel uneasy while easily being able to feel sad at the end of the show. The show covers almost every problem you’ve encountered with reason and interesting plot direction. Over all, the show is very aesthetically pleasing, well shot, with good characters and a satyrical but melancholic plot the leaves the viewer anticipating every episode on the edge of their seats.

    The show is more like the books and in the books the resteraunt was in the books but I do agree the forth wall breaking is bad and lemony in the show is wayyyyyyyy to introducing but I like jim curry in the movie but I hate neil patrick because he is more evil. And the monty killing explanation is pointless. Also the henchmen in the books are mire evil

  • Kathrine  Novalight
    Kathrine Novalight 19 days ago

    In my honest opinion, i think both are great HOWEVER, the show nailed it for keeping every detail of each book in each episode, which is why they are longer and more lengthy than the movie. The movie could've added more depth and time into the movie but they only took three book and mashed them together. The movie had the feel down as the tone and the right kind of attitude towarsa it, however their setup for each scene is what made me most irritated, considering that they set it up as first book, second, third then back to first. Then they decided that they were just gonna stop the movie there, which is fine but it wouldve been better to have the detail like the show does. The show goes through all the books instead of just three and it sets up each plot in the way it was suppose to be, sets up each character to how they are (except mr. Poe's wife, elenor was suppose to be mr. Poe's sister, not the wife.) And stuck tk each book accordingly. But as far as where my likes are, i wouldnt be able to decide either or, i loved the movie first and i love the show now, so i love them both equally. That's just my look on things.

    VFD wasn’t even mentioned not once in the film, which really killed it for me and why I prefer the series better, because the whole book series revolves around the schism in VFD, which is the whole reason why the entire Series Of Unfourtunate Events happens at all. If you don’t mention it, what’s the whole point of the movie? The movie shows the plot as some random fire that just so happens to ruin like everything else, however the Netflix series actually elaborates and gives reason to all plot scenarios and explains why things that happened happened. And personally, I think Netflix Olaf was a better adaptation completely, nothing against Jim Carrey of course, I simply think Carrey is too lighthearted and funny for such an evil solemn character such as Olaf. The Baudelaire’s in the Netflix series are represented much better, not only that but Klaus actually has glasses in the series, which I think was a big part of his character, and I believe that the movie completely killed the vibe that’s supposed to be ‘dreary and solemn’ and the Netflix series is just way more similar to the books. I respect your opinion, but I have to agree to disagree.

    I'll admit that while I don't hate the movie, it was a disappointment to me. It stayed pretty true to the source material but there is a very distinct feeling, an emotional experience I still don't really have a name for, I remember having when i read the books for the first time as a child. Honestly at the time I just figured that it was the result of the maturing I had done in the years separating when I first read the books and the movie coming out or maybe I had just romanticized the feeling I had when reading books, there were a lot of really complicated really fucked up things going on in my life at the time and those books were my escape. Regardless of the why I just saw it as one of those things and I enjoyed the movie even if it wasn't what I desperately wanted it to be. And then the show came premiered and it elicited that not quite definable emotional response the movie lacked, everything about it brought me joy and entertainment and a healthy dose of nostalgia. For that reason the movie could never hope to compare to the show, but that's for a deeply personal reason and I realize anybody who didn't have the exact relationship with the books that I did may feel quite differently and that's ok

    The movie wasnt bad. But could've definitely been better. They greatly suffer the authors voice by trying to slam everything into one movie.
    The TV show may move way slower in comparison. But it definitely covers the authors voice better. Part of that is because the author had complete control over the scripts. If wanted something changed they did. Another thing is that even if it doesnt seem important it is. Most of the dialogue is taken verbatim from the books.
    As someone who read the books and watched both movie and tv. The TV is one of the best book to screen adaptations of anything I've seen. Went back to read the books after watching the show and realized how close they adheard to the authors vision.

    everybody saying the series is better cause there is more things in it and it follows the book closer, as if that is a priority. The tone, characters , cinematography and color choice is far better in the movie, there is just less things crammed in . The series almost never had the feeling that olaf was a actual threat.

    The Netflix series wasn't trying to leech off the success of Harry Potter like the movie was trying to do.

    Being darker in nature doesn't guarantee quality much less superior content. Being darker in nature guarantees that you'll attract misguided fake gothic teenagers to make crappy AMVs that they post to TVclip with the trailer shots of your movie to sweet sounds either Linkin Park's In The End or Evanescence's bring me to life.

    The movie mashed 3 different stories together and messed up the wedding scene by placing it after the Wide Window, poorly executed and Streep seemed like she was phoning in most of her perfomance, possibly after she learned that this movie would be met with no award nominations, I don't blame her; this was an fine movie when there were no adaptations of the works of Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate events to speak of. However another movie mashed 3 different stories together and was publicly derided for it: Spider-Man 3 and rightfully so. These aren't HORRIBLE movies by any means, but they can fall back on much better stories from their own mythos, especially since Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events has a long form episodic TV show fall back on.

    Don't get me wrong, the movie was good, but the series was better.
