I won't throw it any spoilers but in general at was a very good adaption from the book. some changes were apparent but not huge and no made up scenes like the previous film.

Cut off point actually worked as well.


How awesome was the animated sequence?

Still seen it in full just the once - think seeing it again on Friday. Seen lots of it in bits at work, though.


I wondered how they were going to do it in the film and was well impressed. It was like samurai jack at its best only better.
Death looked brilliant.

On a side note what about the guy playing Pius Thicknesse as a good call for Vetinari.

Saw the film today. Brilliantly done, excellent acting, effects, in fact all of it. They did take the story for the first episode much further through the book than we, friend & I, expected though.
Looking forward to the DVD & the next film.
Best wishes,
Tiff

I like him, he has charm, something few actors have, he was the stand out from the first feel, damn funny.


In my opinion anyway... :wink:

I liked him in Driving Lessons as well as the whole HP thing. I can't imagine Ron as being in any way different to him. :D
Bloody Mail for the review Dave :roll: Ah well more will follow. Got my tickets booked :D

I haven't seen any of the movies, yet, and I won't go to the cinema to watch HP 7.2 probably because I don't think I'll manage to watch the first 7 parts before it's out of the cinemas again.
I plan on watching the film eventually, though.
Chances are I won't like it, since most times I can't stand films of books I've read. And since I like the HP books very much (to think that a year before now I wouldn't have thought I'd ever say that, let alone thought I'd once have read them all) the movies will have a hard time convincing me.

I loved the books and have to say that overall the films are quite good. Occasional blips yes but overall worth watching. :D sometimes adaptions can work very well :D
