LOL So anyway. My thoughts... I liked it, definitely, and I laughed out loud to a lot of things. However... *gasp* I wish there had been more of Papa Lazarou, Tubbs and Edward... and less of that weird old English thing, LOL! But I cracked up at the visual effects on the monsters...
I would like to see an alternate version now with Bernice, Pauline and Chinnery as the "heroes" instead Speaking of Bernice and Pauline... Woo! That was a close one LOL!
But yes. Overall I liked it a lot, but there were things I didn't think were as good as they could have been (in the same vein as the Stella Street movie)...
I liked it a lot, and I think the like will creep into love over a period of time, like some movies tend to do with me!
It was different to what I expected, inasmuch as I was expecting something really REALLY dark and gothic, a bit more in the vein of the Chrissie spesh - so yay, they surprised me in that respect! (Though more dark/gothic would have been very welcome!)
I thought David Warner was enormous fun (I have enjoyed him ever since he played Dr Necessitor in The Man With Two Brains - one of my fave movies ever) doing the baddie thing. I thought he was a little Snape-ish even! I laughed v. hard when he was cooking up the Homunculous, and wearing a pinnie to keep clean!
Lots more to say, but don't want to be a thread hog just yet!
(*whimper* A little cameo by Judee would have been nice...)
