re: Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

Not long seen the tv trailer for this myself (kept missing it, for some reason). It looks very good! Can't wait to see it, and I don't say that about many films.

re: Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

Been looking forward to this for several weeks; and I can't find anywhere local that's showing it! (Fylde coast, Lancashire, UK) Stupid multi-national profit-centred multi-plexes... (that I normally praise as having plenty of choice!)

Went to see it yesterday. A very good movie I thought, with some very memorable scenes, although now I'm trying to work out how much of it was 'real'.

Jonathan Ross reviewed the on Film 2006 recently, I would really like to see it. I love anything like this, the music, effects and storyline sound intriguing.

We only have an Arts Theatre near us, so we get the Films about a month later unless they're really big box office hits. We won't get Pan's Labyrinth until the end of January

re: Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

I saw it and loved it, absolutely wonderful, something that really inspires I thought.

I did not know it was sub-titled until I got in but that was no prob.

It too was not shown widely in my area, maybe to much of a 'specific crowd puller', not a dead cert to pull into the cash.

You gotta love the non-mainstream stuff, lol.

We just saw it today and I loved it too. Beautiful, but not in the meaning that most people use the word in. Very strong.

It didn't show in the "regular" cinema, but there is a place which shows more "independent" things and they ran it.

re: Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

Don't bring along your kids on this one, even though it at first might appear to be a robust family movie. I found some of the scenes very strong.

A beautiful but horrible movie.

The trailer is rather misleading, I think (just apart from that awful Trailer Voice). It's not a Fantasy movie, the fairy-tale plot sometimes falls completely into the shadow of the real-life plot. The trailer also failed to reflect the brutality found in very many scenes.

Still, a great movie, if you can stomach it.

re: Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

Wow you thought that it was a brutal film? I would not have said so myself, just normal sort of violence, considerably less than what is mostly out there I thought.

What was certificate of it anyways?

I'd say the violence was rather different from what you'd see in mainstream movies. It was perhaps the same amount, but not the same sort
First, it was neither humorous, nor were its effects understated, as normally tends to be. Second, the context intensified it all greatly. Most of all because of the Capitan character and his frightening, cynical sadism, but also considering that the protagoist was only a little child.

SPOILER:
That said, the clear view of humanoid fairies having their heads bitten/torn off by the Pale Man didn't make anything better. Normal sort of violence? Not for me.
