What does Woundwort say when...
« on: February 05, 2012, 01:58:51 PM »
in "Prisoner in Efrafa" after Vervain asks to kill Pipkin? I couldn't make it out but it sounded like heeiter said "I'l tear him apart myself" but as I listened more closely, it sounded like "I'd be killing apart of myself". This really interests me, what dos he say?

Either way, with this line alone this Woundwort is a hell of a lot more interesting than the one in the movie, maybe even the one in the book (ok, maybe that's going too far)

He said "I'd be killing a part of myself" since he and Pipkin both lost their mother to a weasel.

I hear: "That would be... like killing a part of myself".

And yes. Woundwort has more sides to him than plain villainy, hasn't he? :)

^ At least in the series he does because they can flesh it out more.  The film was a more strict adaptation of the book.

True, the series certainly had an edge (character development wise) since it was, well, a series. And to be truly honest, I think following the book strictly is the movie's main flaw, especially with only an hour and a half to do it.

I don't think, that following the book is the movie's main flaw. I think, the movie made the best of the story.

The main flaw of the movie is the fact, that it is a movie. It could've been much better, if it has been a trilogy.

Luckily, the series has more character development, so Woundwort is a really interesting character with a sad past.
