...Just finished watching 'Treasure Planet' - yet another adaptation of the classic Robert Louis Stephenson "Treasure Island". Not bad, some funny bits, overall watchable, but SO wrong. I mean, the things they dismissed as unimportant blew me away - they just... ignored something that would have made them all rich beyond their wildest dreams. Can't tell you what without spoiling it. The 'secret' of the pirate captain - his method was far more valuable than all the treasure he accumulated. *sigh* Oh well.

Of course the pirates go for the treasure, etc etc etc and it all ends badly etc etc etc except for Jim and the other good guys. Well, mostly.
