    Steve . . I was hoping you would say one good new twist about the 2018 Remake . At the movies end, the CGI Sandleford blends in to the real Sandleford. A young lad is running and carrying a little kit. When his mum shouts. "Richard Adams , what have you got there ? " . .

    Thank you for the review! I enjoyed it. Admittedly I haven't watched all of the remake because the pacing, music, animation, and muted contrast and other elements I wasn't too thrilled about. Also I agree about Hazel's relationship with Fiver was more important, especially since Fiver was doubted so much (like Cassandra in Greek mythology where the author took inspiration from) Also Bigwig was my favorite and he was so abrasive in the remake. I watched the original when I was really young and it gave me nightmares the first viewing, but I had to watch it again because it was an intense and emotional adventure and that really spoke to me. Also read the book, which for me was really immersive and offered a lot of insight into the story.

    Personal opinion: I actually like how it looks in the remake. It is cheap but in a good way. It looks like it was watercoloured a bit and I like things that way. It gives it more creativity which makes it more lively than the uncreative and cliche realistic style. I’m pretty sure bbc intended to make it look like that

    Watership Down will always have a special place in my heart. I saw the original on TV as an evening special broadcast. I was so moved I cried, my mom explained to me that there was a book, and we spent several weekends scouring used bookstores till we found a very nice used copy that I hold dear to this day. This seems to me to be one of those things that really didn't need a remake unless they were really going for broke to do a perfect book translation....

    Watership down was a movie made for what it was back then. Back when we were not so offended by our own shadows. This film made in 1978 would not make it today from all these snowflakes who want to watch a movie but criticize it if it isn't like some pg-13 cartoon movie. I have seen it when it came on TV when I was young and had no problem with the movie but, today's people can't watch anything that shows any kind of death or action.

    I've loved the book since 6th grade. I just watched the '78 flick--pretty good, for being so short. I haven't seen the series & don't want to. That's some robot uncanny valley shit, there. The '78 one has a better script because it sticks pretty closely to the text of the book, which is brilliant.

    the thing you missed is that the series is not a remake of the old movie. the movie is not "the original". they are both animations based on the same book - the book is the original. And it looks like you didn't read it because a big portion of the plot and character elements you didn't like are simply adapted from it. and it also feels like you are kinda nostalgia biased about those.

Making Holly useless for the 1st half is a great idea as obviously you want someone in charge at the end who was useless for for half the movie. Hahaha damn stupid.

    Bro. bro. You need to consider several key points that you completely neglected in your video. 1) Watership Down is a novel, and not just any novel, but required high school reading for easily 100 million Americans and Brits spanning decades of curriculum. Consider Tom Sawyer. 2) Besides the novel, for which there's naturally an audio book, there is also a BBC radio play. 3) And I'm guessing you missed the 3 season cartoon which ran from 1999 to 2002, adding an additional 15 hours of legend and lore? Oh yeah, and scads of "Tales Of" books that rounded off the collection. If you're going to do a comparison review, and go right into the lore, character development, and scene splitting... you're not going to impress me until you have fully absorbed all of the above. I am not impressed. You can't even carry a competent conversation about the subject that is Watership Down. (I mean yeah, sure, the remake arguably sucks.)

    I think the reason they said that bucks “can’t” dig is because in the original book, Bigwig (I think; it may have been one of the others) says that digging is “for does”. Then Adams side notes later that bucks only scrape when they need to, while does do a lot of the digging for their kits. So, they didn’t make it up, they just used it as an excuse so they didn’t have to mention “reproduction” in the movie. So, still a dumb reason 😂

    I just finished reading the original book, and if you'd like a bit of context, the original movie follows the book more closely. The 2018 remake probably wanted to add more female characters to what is essentially a rabbit sausage fest. The book is entirely about the male rabbits' journey and struggles. Clover even mates with a rabbit that's NOT Hazel, even though Hazel broke her and others out of the hutch. The male rabbits dig their own warren, despite how unnatural it is for males because they don't know when they'll get females who are better at digging warrens. (This is just true to rabbit behavior, females have the instincts for protecting babies) Also they really did butcher Bigwig and Kehaar's characters, fuck them.

      It’s a movie & remake based on a book. It’s about rabbits, looking for a new home after a prophesy drives them from their old one. They encounter all kinds of dangers, mainly from other groups of rabbits with their own agendas. The author served as a soldier & it’s hard not to imagine his own experiences influenced his stories

    Nice comparison. Haven't never seen either version, I watched the original recently. It was so refreshing to watch something that didn't follow a generic story line, and the imagery was so captivating. After watching your review of the remake, I would have no interest in watching it. It's sad that they try to fit everything into the same cookie cutter mold.

    The original movie is not the original story. PLEASE read the book before complaining how the remake changed from the original. I think you'll find that many changes were made to increase accuracy to the ORIGINAL BOOK SOURCE. It is a GREAT read, you won't be disappointed.

    So.... The original movie took the time Hazel was shot out of sequence and so of course Fiver was the only one who could have found him because they didn't have the does by that time in the original film. They used the scene as a way to show how the brothers had a special connection. So of course you'd complain when it changes from original movie to the remake, but in essence it is not accurate to the book anyways.
