It was pretty good. Quite gross in some spots though.
It's not a movie I'd let a child watch.
aww, heck no!! going back and watching the trailers to 'pan's labyrinth' after you've seen the movie, you realize that the american distributors really had NO idea what to do with marketing this movie...sell it as a gritty war drama for adults? nope, sell it as a fairy tale for adults! well, that was the plan anyway, but lots of the trailers just get across that fairy tale idea, and when we went to see it, there were a few people there that had brought kids that were obviously too young to be seeing this. fortunately, the subtitles drove out most of the kiddos before the gore set in. and i liked it a lot, myself.
watched 'the sisterhood of the travelling pants' last night, expecting it to be a fluffy kiddo chick-power kind of thing. oh, no, guys, it was an unexpectedly good movie, a real coming-of-age tale, a lot closer to a teenager version of 'the joy luck club' than some silly lindsay lohan thingy. pull up some margaritas and bond with your chick friends of any age.
