Great film.

I probably should've brushed up on my Spanish Civil war history. Although the captain was clearly evil, not everyone in the outpost was. I thought the maid was a bit of a traitor for endangering the others.

Fair enough I suppose. But if I'm looking for just a great story I'll read one. But seriously, I honestly understant the fair-tale approach Del Toro took, but I think he might have taken the concept just a bit too literally. I believe he could have accomplished the same goal and came out with a product a little more friendly to the film medium as well, if that makes sense. If nothing else though (even though I do love a ton about this movie), I do appreciate his ambition.

Now folks.

Seriously.

There's just one more thing this film was missing that would have guarenteed this film a spot in my top 20.

And that of course would be:

Definitely, it also doesn't hurt that it's Ralph Fiennes either.

Perfect casting much?

Ralph Fiennes

I'm absolutely convinced that he's the best actor of our time. He makes you hate him in so many roles and then you take a look at The Constant Gardner and watch him cry softly after his wife has died and feel for him so much. The man can play any role to a T.

Enough thread derail:
Pan's Labyrinth was awesome and stuff.
My friend wants a Pale Man costume for Halloween. Keep your eyes peeled for one.

GET IT? HAHAHAHA.

I love dark fairy tales and really looked forward to this film but in the end wasn't nearly as captivated by it as many people clearly were. The cinematography and visual design were outstanding and the whole Pale Man sequence was absolutely brilliant stuff of nightmares. But on the whole the film felt kinda underwhelming and the maid, Mercedes, was the only character who truly engaged me. Yeah, Ofelia is good and innocent and her predicament is sad but she's just not a terribly interesting character IMO and neither was the captain.

Good movie.

It would have been better if it would have had less unnecessary violence.

But very creative.
