The Colour of Danger?

I just watched the last half of The Colour of Magic (2008) movie and just could not get past Rincewind sounding like Danger Mouse. Not that I mind guys sounding like Danger Mouse, but there were moments when I wasn’t really focused on the screen that I really had to stop and think about what I was watching – Danger Mouse or Pratchett? 

I would comment on whether or not it was a faithful retelling or not, but it has been a very long time since I read that particular Pratchett novel. It felt like a pretty good retelling. And Tim Curry’s in it, so it gets a thumbs up for that. Now if only they’d do one about the Night Watch.

Oh ick Penfold, indeed.
