Watership Down: The Movie

So, I finished watching the 1978 animated adaptation of the book Watership Down.  It stayed reasonably true to the original (well, as much as can be expected for a 101 minute movie, but didn’t really do the book justice.  So many things happen in the story that the movie just ends up glossing over everything.  Events that took place over days or weeks in the book end up taking only a few minutes or hours in the movie’s timeline.  I don’t think any fan of Watership Down is really missing much if they don’t see this movie.
