Inkheart is SOOOO good. Best movie I've seen in ages. Only movie I've seen in ages I want to buy on DVD when it comes out so I can own it. Unexpectedly good on all counts.
Go. Go. Go.
It is made for book people.
WTF Update: I really and truly don't get this Rotten Tomatoes ranking–this is a really fine movie. I just really and truly don't get it. I hope the word of mouth does what it should.
So, the main complaint seems to be that it's occasionally "complicated" and "hard to follow" — um, no. Yes, it's an unusual movie, particularly in terms of questions like who the protagonist is, but it's very classically structured and anyone who Pays Attention will appreciate that every little thing isn't explained to death. I want to see it again, because it feels like a movie that will reward multiple watchings. Great cast, too, and some truly memorable insults from the fabulous Helen Mirren. It's almost as if even the critics giving favorable reviews were a) too lazy to pay attention and b) afraid to admit they liked it.
