    I know I'm a little behind on this, but is this the same story as that Labyrinth movie with David Bowie(same story, just not done the same way)?

    Or am I just being an idiot?

    Well that's not fair. All the movies I want to see aren't even playing near me at the moment.(Labyrinth, curse of the golden flower, etc.)

    I guess I'll just illegally dl them from a torrent site

    There was a long line waiting to get in at AFI. But I still got a choice sit.

    Innocence Has A Power Evil Cannot Imagine.

    Everyone was fantastic. :up:
    I didn't really think it was going to have such graphic,gruesome war violence. :csad: Such an incredibly well told story. I wanted to cheer when Pedro came to rescue Mercedes. I had a hard time holding in my joy. :O
    I loved Ofelia,one tough little girl. Almost makes me want to give birth,almost. Very tragic how the mother became involved with the Captain. Mercedes telling the Captain his son wouldn't even know his name was perfect, the only thing to really get to that ****er before execution. :up:

    I forgot to place my opinion on the film. After almost a year of waiting for this movie, my expectations were exceeded. I knew it was going to be great, but it was better than that. What a fantastic piece of cinema this is.

    Saw this yesterday and it is my favorite movie this year (2006 included). The story was amazingly well told with an incredible mix of fantasy and horror. The acting was also outstanding, and I'm quite glad they didnt choose to dub this and instead went with subtitles because dubbing would have taken away from the emotion of the performances. Overall simply incredible movie. 10/10.

    well, it's actually pretty different, seeing as there is no religious message at all, and a lot of people that I saw it with intrepreted it a different way.
    it's overall a good fantasy film and if you have seen any of the other Del Toro Movies ( he is not "the master of horror" as others have suggested) something like "the Devil's backbone" you'd see that its a good progression, prehaps a little too influenced by his work on Hellboy, but he was developing "golden Army" as he directed this.
    all over a good movie, If you can. give it a chance. :up:

    Whenever I see blue filtering used in a film I always think of Tim Burton. Influence?

    What an amazing film. I'm still thinking about it days after seeing it. It's really beautiful. Definitely in my top three movies of last year. (If you couldn't guess, I absolutely adored it.)
