    I don't really agree with some of your points. Also, the video started out fine, but then your bias comes out very hard. It goes from being a comparison video to you just slamming the Netflix version in favour of the motion picture.

    I personally enjoyed the movie but I do feel the show was much better at capturing the unique style in which the books are written. It comes off as really weird and strange when translated to the screen but once you get used to it I feel like it did the book justice while not being a carbon copy of it. The exaggerated features about the adults- mainly their ignorance, their selfishness, their stupidity- are all wonderfully portrayed and really gets the whole theme of the story so well. I do feel that the 'abilities' of the children, mainly Klaus, could have been as exaggerated as in the film but they're still written wonderfully. The thing about the movie is that because it's so short and only based on the first three books of the series, the major plot points of VFD and that entire mystery is not included. Everything about the eyes, the telescope, the fires all remain a mystery to the audience.

    What do you mean Neil patric Harris can’t change from being nice to a threat, HES LITERALLY SAYING THAT HE IS GOING TO CUT OFF SUNNYS TOE! While the movie version is doing a weird dinosaur movement. The books are dark, so should the movie and show and I think the show has portrayed that very clearly

    So, over all I agree. But I do feel like you may have overlooked Neil Patrick Harris's serious moments, which I believe were delivered very well. The Netflix acting always seemed a little off, but it seemed intentional. I'm sure there's a reason for it, probably to make a series of arson, murder, and multiple plots to kill small children to get money a little less dark. While I see what you mean about the 2 snickets, I personally really enjoyed Warburtons part especially considering how well it portrays Snicket as he was in the books. Final note, less important, the rock with an x was a rock violet marked so she knew she was retrieving the right rock. It was a machine to retrieve skipped stones. But, that's irrelevant. I did really miss the book thing that the movie had for klaus. Overall, I think you brought to attention things that I hadn't thought of

      And in would also like to say one of the reasons I'm so biased is because I loved the books. The Netflix series does, of course, embellish and have it's own spin on it. However, the way the books were written, most of the embellishments were acceptable because some of the parts in the book were left intentionally vague

    You have obviously not read all the books. Not to brag (I totally am) but I read twelve of them in a tear. The series is better hands down. If you’d read the book you’d know Count Olaf was indeed not as smart and a bad actor. The series opened so many other possibilities that didn’t change the story completely but were nice touches. Lemony Snicket in the boom wasn’t a mysterious and badly dramatic as the movie, he was much more open, willing to explain, and humorous. He had that emotionless presence that he actor really grasped. Count Olaf was much better in the series because he was arrogant but had a cunning, in the second book Count Olaf knew nothing if snakes and such but you think it’s good that he should cause it makes it more believable...? The whole point was that the orphans were misunderstood and no one really saw through Count Olaf, not that he was a great actor and such. As a kinder note I’d like to suggest reading the books. They’re pretty good and you’d understand what the series is all about. And about Mr. Po. He actually is an idiot, the series portrayed him well

    The casting in the movie was generally better, with a few exceptions. I know you like him, but I can't ever feel intimidated by Jim Carrey. I didn't get the impression that Carrey was trying to conceal his abuse of Klaus from his troop, but rather, establishing what alibi they should tell the authorities, and his motives were humorously transparent. That's the problem with Carrey's Olaf, he's consistently funny, if, at times, in a dark sort of way.
    NPH is just as odd a choice as Carrey, but he can have his intimidating moments. Case in point, when Olaf reveals his identity to Josephine in the diner, he steals her sandwich, and eats it sloppily in front of her, the whole time giving her a look that channels absolutely pure Malcolm McDowell. It isn't hard to imagine someone with that look in their eye next picking up a knife on the table, and slitting the other person's throat, with nary a change to their face.
    I agree that the visuals from the movie were better too, but I have to disagree with the pacing. There are things they could've trimmed down, but spending more time with the characters allows for greater development, and breaking the tension periodically allows them to bring it back up again.
    As far as the ending goes, I much prefer the way the series ended the first season. Ending with Jim Carrey arrested, and given karmic retribution, and the kids finding the letter, I'd say it ends on too hopeful a tone. This is ASOUE. It's supposed to end with a feeling of melancholic ambiguity. The show captures that perfectly, with a somber song played as the children are trapped in an unending cycle of being left with strangers, then uprooted by Olaf.
    I mean, to put this into perspective, you say the show is too cartoony, but on the one hand, you have Uncle Monty's dead corpse staring with wide eyes into the camera, and on the other, you have Jim Carrey pretending to be Olaf pretending to be a T-Rex.
    Anyway, as everyone said, this show only got darker AND better in later seasons. NPH is an odd choice for olaf as an evil figure, but as a misguided loner? He has plenty of experience in that role, see Dr. Horrible. The moral ambiguity throughout, and especially the themes of life and death at the end, they're anything but cartoony.

  • theredheadedgeek

    I'll sum it up for you, acting was much better in the movie, but it lacked the depth of the story. The show was the opposite. Both lacked a bit on the delivery of the entire thing.
    This was only the comparison of the first season and the movie. As the show went on, we were able to see more character arcs grow, we could see darker themes and better acting, and the delivery of everything became much clearer and better seen. The movie was a good idea, and I'm glad we were able to try it with such amazing actors. But overall, they were on the same ground in the first season, but the show shot way farther up in the other seasons.


    But its not over

  • Annika Wiebers

    I personally like the show better because I think the characters are played better and look more like how I'd pictured them (in the movie Violet is goth/steampunk, Sunny is in a huge dress all the time and Klaus has no glasses??) Also they're more faithful to the books in the plot line and add so many more details and really weave the story together with the VFD agent side plots. Also, while I agree that the show is more cartoon-y, I noticed that pretty much everything but the clothes is very muted and often even gray-scale which really sets off the kids' trying to make the best of their horrible circumstances.

    The show just ended, you said the ending was the musical number, that was the first season. The show just ended this year, I won't spoil anything, but it ended on a far far happier note. The movie ended with Olaf having to endure everything the kids were put through, with the kids in Mr. Poe's car. I did hear that some of the info changed from the books into the show, but I liked the more in depth version. But Jim Carey was great as Olaf

    I don't honestly remember the books very well but from what I do remember (and my personal opinion of the Netflix series) I think the books work better as a comic tragedy than as a true tragedy, or perhaps rather, a melodrama.

  • 케이팝나는 스탠 케이팝

    Guys let's just state facts, the Netflix series is much better :") (the movie is good too but I prefer the show because everything wasn't rushed into an hour and the Netflix film had 45 minutes in one episode and 2 episodes told one WHOLE book :) plus I don't think this guy read the books count Olaf is supposed to be dark and creepy and I think Neil nailed it, and I respect y'all's opinion on jim and all, but I think that Neil did a better job on actually playing count Olaf like how he was described in the books.

    In the beginning, he says "a television series based on the books of the same name by Lemony Snicket" A Series of Unfortunate Events is written by Daniel Handler. Not Lemony Snicket, sorry to have to break this to you, man. Lemony Snicket is a fictional character.

    The show could've been better than the movie, but it drags really badly. I have a hard time paying attention to it. They should have spent more time on each story than the movie did, but less time than the show did. Somewhere in the middle of those two would have been good. Maybe we could get a fan edit?

    I liked the series better. Personally I thought the movie was funnier and like you said, crammed the first three books into it. I actually found myself questioning whether Olaf was actually that evil in the series which I believe is the point the writers were trying to get across: nobody is truly noble and nobody is truly evil.

    I enjoy both for different things. Tone, aesthetic and cinematography wise I prefer the movie. Story-wise I prefer the series - though at times it did feel like the episodes dragged on for too long. Casting choice wise it differs with each character -like as a whole we have more time with Niel's Olaf but I agree with your point about him seeming less frightening. As a child, I was always I little miffed that the movie didn't get a continuation and I am at least content with this longer adaptation.

    I like both. The show is more fleshed out and ridiculous (meaning humorous). Now when it comes to the movie, I am a little biased not only because I grew up with it, but I thoroughly enjoy dark movies. The actors and actresses really made the movie memorable. Also, you can't beat having Billy Connolly as Uncle Monty (sorry, Aasif Mandvi 😭).

    The show does a much better job of capturing the dry, sophisticated humor of the books. The film felt juvenile in many ways and geared toward a younger audience. Lemony Snicket's wit was very much missing. I think Neil Patrick Harris's performance is much more specific and detailed than Jim Carey's..... he is so immersed in the role that you can really see Count Olaf underneath all of the disguises. Also, the boy who plays Klaus in the series is terrific

    I know you said in the beginning that adaptation from the books is not the important thing, and yes this is true for how closely the story is followed. However, the tone and characterizations should be followed as laid out by the books. The show just nailed this a bit more in my opinion. The books were dark yes, but also comedic in their presentation because it was fantastical, none of what happened in the books would ever happen in real life. The children are bland in the books and we never are offered much in explaining of their abilities we are just told they can do it and then they do, olaf is a bit of a bafoon and he isn't supposed to be a great actor, and most of the adults are indeed dumb and never listen to a word the children say.
