I know my tastes in movies are a little off......
but I really liked this movie. Visually beautiful and a good story without being too Walt Disney( a little hoaky here and there. But edgy here and there too. I will be buying this blu ray for the goergeous artistry. I am watching it a second ti,e now and I have the feeling this film will have long legs. I think I will enjoy something about it every time I see it. (Coraline is another movie like this for me.)

I too enjoyed the movie and will be purchasing the blu-raay along with Avatar very soon; both for their visual effects.

Interesting, I mentioned this to my wife, who is a teacher. She said she has heard lots of negative feedback from the other teachers about this movie. I guess I will have to see it to form an opinion.

I can understand why people might not like it. One reason may be because it is the story from the second book. Not the story that many people might be expecting.

It is a most see for HT lovers though. There are a few scenes with the mad hatter in front of an orange background complimenting his make up and costume that is some of the best blu ray that I have seen.

No, you must form an opinion first and base it off the negative reviews so you can fit in with all the other AVS forum wannabe's ;\)

We should base our opinions on whether or not the stars bathe regularly.

I must say the colors are nice but the film imho is poop. My wife loved it I just don't get it. It was long and boring. But please understand I love lots of movies other people think are poop. I love Willow everyone thinks that movie is poop, except me. I also love gone fishing with Danny Glover and Leo Getts AKA Joe Pesci. I know for a fact Gone Fishing sucks, but I still love it.

I also think district 9 sucked major poop, the whole world thinks its Oscar worthy. I think its poop

Lol! Griff, I loved "Gone Fishing" too, and I watched District 9 the other day...not sure what the fuss was all about...not a bad movie, but certainly not Oscarworthy. Average imo.

Randy, are they grade school teachers? I could see it getting negative feedback because the target audience is children but it's content isn't appropriate for them IMO.

I felt the same way about D9, was much more excited about it from previews then after I actually saw it. I feel great about Book of Eli, I hope it doesn't dissapoint me the same.
