Sooo, I didn't see any other threads about this when I searched.
Has anybody else seen this movie? Absolutely amazing. I'm shocked it didn't win Best Foreign Film at the Oscars, but I hope the one that did win deserved it, because this movie was AMAZING.
Graphically, storyline, characters... so well done. The two storylines worked really well together, I thought-- and I loved the brief outside pov on the Fairy world we got (ie, the little girl talking to nothing).
:D So good.
Amen!!! I absolutely loved Pan's Labyrinth and feel it was ROBBED at the Oscars! It was probably my favorite movie of the year (save for maybe the departed). I loved how the fantasy and real worlds blended together... and how the ending left things open for interpretation.
I saw it for the first time last weekend and while I really enjoyed it, the film hasn't completely blown me away like it did for so many other people. I thought that the brutal violence really helped to keep a 'fantasy' movie very well grounded - and that Guillermo del Toro must have a crazy imagination to have come up with it all!
I'm still not quite sure I really liked the ending, but that's very subjective and a matter of opinion. I'd definately recommend it to people, but I wouldn't say that I'd be desperate to see it again very soon. Maybe in a few years I'll return to it again and see what I think with heinsight.
oh my god!!
i love the movie...
This movie completely blew me away. By the end, I was crying - and not just the stray tear or two that I always get during movies. No, I was bawling and after I left the movie theater I was still shaky for a while.
Now, if a movie with that kind of power isn't worthy of an award, I don't know what is.
I'm crazy to watch it, by its art direction and cinematography.
Since I already watched "300" (my only 2007 obligation... hahaha), now it's time to check this ackward (in a good sense) title.
The trailers are misleading at first you might though it was a straight out fantasy but youre wrong. Youll be more surprise of what it was, I somehow thought it has a hidden meaning.
