I'm looking forward to this Guillermo Del Toro movie-it's about a girl's escapades in an imaginary fantasy world she dreams up to escape the misery of living under a facist regime Spain during 1944. The teaser trailer has finally appeared online:

"The movie asks us to care, to some degree, about the plight of a young girl who is the lost princess of some faerie-like realm."

Yeah, but she is also subject to the cruelty of her adopted father.

*SPOILER*

"What was the point of the maid giving the guerrillas a key to the storehouse, if--as someone in the movie rightly points out--the guerrillas could simply have used a bullet or a crowbar to unlock the door? (Answer: the whole point was to expose the maid as a rebel agent, so del Toro could film another person being terrorized, brutalized, and killed.)"

Yeah, I kind of wondered about this too. Otherwise, I think maybe the guy is being a bit picky. Sure, it has it's flaws but the film is not a history lesson.

some things don't hold up as well after thinking about the film.. but i think that guy is missing the idea Del Toro was going for with the whole fantasy world.



jamming good with Weird and Gilly

Finally saw this, bought the DVD the other day and watched it last night. Thousht it was great, , gripping, creepy, imaginative, dramatic, well acted, beutifully designed and surprising. It's amazing to see such a great performance from a young girl like that. Also watched The Host today, that was pretty good.

I went to see it again last week. Still pretty good. I appreciated more the actors that second time. The only thing that bothered me was the omnipresence of the music (which is a thing I usually dislike in movies).

Stupid the one who decided to include the phrase "From the director of Hellboy and Blade II".

It's an amazing film. I loved it. I'm to tired to start gushing now, though. I will say that Doug Jones was a hoot to meet, though. He seemed so excited to be there and chat with everyone. It made the film that much more of a unique experience.

I'm very excited. I have a ticket to a showing of this tonight. I have been waiting a long time to see this. A nice bonus is the fact that Doug Jones (Pan) is going to be there doing a Q&A after the film. I'll be sure to post something on it when I get back.

i thought DEVIL'S BACKBONE kind of licked sac

MIMIC was a solid horror film though.. still haven't seen CRONOS



at least that's what your mom said
Carl Posted - 01/05/2007 : 10:49:14
Never saw that, or The Devil's Backbone, which is also supposed to be really good.

Newo Posted - 01/04/2007 : 05:40:01
I might go see that. Cronos was cool.

i'm sure this'll be a shoe-in for Best Foreign Language Film, but you'll find that out when i win the oscar pool

I went to see it yesterday and I liked it a lot. As good as I expected.
Ivana Baquero and Sergi Lopez are great. The directing is almost perfect. Maybe I wish there was more "fantastic" scenes, but it's still really great. As good as The Devil's Backbone IMO.
