Helena’s Reviews: The Princess and the Goblin

Helena’s Reviews: The Princess and the Goblin published on 1 Comment on Helena’s Reviews: The Princess and the Goblin

Helena: Written twenty years before Dracula, this fairy tale stands the test of time — and age. By which I mean that a kid will find it magical, but the same holds true if you first read it when you’re much older. (In my case, much, much older.)

It’s intricate and carefully plotted. The protagonists are believable both as heroes and as humans. And though it was written less than two centuries ago, the magic feels ancient.

Seras: Hey, you were right! I read it, and it’s great, and look! There’s a sequel!

Helena: No. Don’t go near the sequel. The plot is simplistic, the magic diminished, and the ending a disaster.

Seras: Why, what happens?

Helena: Rocks fall. Everyone dies.

Seras: That bad, huh?

Helena: No, you don’t understand. It’s literal.

Yeah. If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s crappy sequels to great classics.

Disney stopped making good movies at 2000.

Well they at least got rid of Eisner, and they’ve stopped doing straight to DVD sequels.
