Fuck sleep.

Went and saw Mirrormask. Ran into taucross, eldogo, and poopoo102075.

Hard to tell my reaction to the movie. I could glimpse the Gaiman influence in it, but the visuals were so intense they were kinda distracting. Cool, definitely, but distracting.

I didn't find the story all that absorbing, either. I kept wanting more: more detail, more depth, a sense of urgency. It was close, but felt like it missed.

The visuals are at times stunningly beautiful. It's kinda like Gaiman on Acid, but without the depth that I want.

But it could have just been me.

I am purely interested in seeing it for the visuals. I love, love, love Dave McKean's style!!! I've not read the story by Gaiman. Maybe I should do that before hand so I understand the movie better. It won't open here until next Friday.

It's written directly for the screen; so I don't know how much you would enjoy ruining the surprises for yourself. There's a storyboard book with a full script, and a smaller childrens'-style book as well.

I doubt that you would need to read the story to get it any better-- it's pretty simple. It might be a better experience though.
