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.
