Thumbs up I just finished watching Pan's Labyrinth!

My gosh, I don't think I've ever seen a movie with such imagination for a long time! I enjoyed every minute of it! I wish I had seen it sooner than I did. I've become a fan of the movie and plan on watching it again tonight when it gets darker...

Has anyone else on here seen the movie?

No, but I just opened a new tab to go to netflix and move it up on my queue, simply because you said it rocks.

Yes, I saw it in the cinema when it was released here. It's an astonishingly good fairy tale. I can't really talk about it without risking spoiling it for those who've not, but I would totally recommend seeing it.

My brother loved it. some good moments but overall I didn't like it much. Too creepy for that sort of thing for my taste.
LOTR was dark but in a good way.

The same guy is directing the Hobbit interestingly.

Not in the way that film was portrayed. My brother loves it still.

I didn't like it much and I understood every word. I hated the way it ended.

The way it ended is key to everything that went before, It's the kind of 'make your own mind up' ending that you just wouldn't get in most mainstream films now because the makers would be too scared it would hurt the box-office. 'The Mist' is the same kinda situation, great ending, but not the kind audiences want.
