Pan's Labyrinth


New post time. Ahhh, Pan's Labyrinth. Personally, I love this movie, although I realize that not everyone will. This is a foreign film from Spain, so yes, It is completely done in Spanish, by spanish actors, with english subtitles. The reason everyone won't like this movie is it mixes history with fantasy. A young girl moves with her mother into the home of a Spanish general who is currently fighting the rebels. Turns out the girl is actually a princess in some alternate world. She is approached by a creature who presents 3 tasks for her to accomplish to prove that she is still the princess. It has some pretty scary/thrilling moments which make it very intense at times. Anyways, as long as fantasy doesn't completely turn you off, you should enjoy this movie. It even won a few Academy Awards. Highly Recommended.
B+

i loved this one too (we own it). i have a love-hate relationship with rated R movies because there are some i've given into watching that i've hated and have been offended by and there are some that are among my favorite films (like this one, and Changeling, the Matrix, V for Vendetta...the list goes on).

we watched one last night that i was in love with from the beginning; Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (why had i not seen that before?) you should review it! i also recommend The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Coraline. And for classics, Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder and Rear Window. happy movie watching!
