A faithful adaptation?

A faithful adaptation without Brendan Fraser?

Brendan Fraser makes the movie, imo. Okay, so I haven't seen it yet.

I'm just a shallow, squeeing fan girl. :D

Seriously, though, I like the idea of the movie, so I'll probably check it out when it comes out on DVD.

I just want it not to suck. Brendan Fraser has done some nice work. IMHO, though, he's not nearly old enough for the role. At least, not how I saw him in my head. In my head I saw someone older, with a more resonant voice, like Liam Neeson or Gerard Depardieu.

The trailer was really weird to me, because I think the book is mostly about the little girl, but the movie seems to be all about her dad (Brendan Frasier). I dunno, they might just be trying to emphasize the BrendanFrasieriness of the movie...

BrendanFrasieriness Word of the day.

collection of reviews. it only rates 36% but that means nothing. critics look for different things and have totally different requirements but they often talk about main aspects of movies which are nice to know.

It's gotta be better than Monkeybone, right?

Yeah, but that's like saying, it's gotta be better than sitting in a hot tub full of donkey mucus.

Inkheart's not bad - involving enough that I got a little teary at the end.

I haven't, however, read the books.

My wife and son, who have? Not impressed.

In fact, my nine-year old son's response was "I hate the liberties they take with adaptations."

It's odd to hear your own voice coming out of your child's mouth.

When I saw the trailer, I basically went.

"OH MY GOD THEY'RE MAKING A THURSDAY NEXT Mo...oh...wait, no, no...its not The Eyre Affair."


And then I was sad.
