    I went to the cinema to watch Pan's Labyrinth last night.

    WOW!

    Dark, brutal and utterly bewitching - all of the ingredients for a classic fairy tale.

    Saw it on monday night and I would agree that it was good. I could have used a little more of the fairy world, and the story was a little slow, but it was beautifully shot.

    Heard it is supposed to be good. I've never seen a subtitled film at the cinema though, it doesn't distract does it?

    After a short while you don't even notice. It's like being fluent in Spanish! :)

    Really want to see it but can't get anyone to take the time at this time of the year with so many office parties and family & friend get-togethers. Nothing duller than going to the cinema alone...

    Guess I'll see it on DVD.

    I had to drive 2 hours to the neareset cinema screening this a couple weeks back and it was worth every second of the drive.

    Best film far and away 2006.

    Though I did hear enough moans about it from people, it'd been alright if it was in english :rolleyes:

    Can't find anywhere in my area thats showing it so looks like its DVD hire for me. Oh well, another reason to join Amazon DVD rentals in 07.

    I saw this over the weekend, had had no clue what it was about but just agreed to see it to make the boyfriend happy (and shuddup since I wouldn't go watch Rocky w/ him :p). I was impressed.

    It's definitely more the way I "saw" fairytales as they were described to me growing up.

    It's a movie that I'd consider seeing again in the theaters, even with the exorbitant ticket prices.

    I plan on seeing this once it makes it way to the Phoenix area. It looks great, and I heard it was from my friend in LA.
