I made the bland comment. I have watched both movies, several times. I enjoy the movies, if you "forget" the books, the 2016 movie is interesting to watch and enjoy.
I think you have to look at the 2016 movie as a cross between Ransome and Buchan, then it is pretty good as a ripping yarn. But if you prefer the books, only in the WDMTGS and GN did AR write ripping yarns, I do not include ML or PD, both are farces.
I am of the opinion that WDMTGS would make a first class picture and if done by a Ron Howard or a Steven Speilberg with a acting team like Enola Holmes you would have a multimillion dollar hit.
