Inkheart Movie

Went to see the sneak preview of Inkheart this evening and I really loved it! The casting was perfect, the scenery beautifully done, and not too many changes were made. I especially like Dustfinger and Eleanor. Helen Mirren is always fabulous, but at times she almost stole the show.

There were a few small issues, such as Brendan Fraser's lack of an accent when everyone else had one. And they changed a few small things. Really wish they would have left in the bit about Tinkerbell.

One thing I was surprised about was the way they ended it. This was the first movie adaptation I can remember where the writers successfully left themselves with a viable option of either continuing with the sequel or not. They could do the next story, but they don't have to. It was very well done (maybe because the author had her hand in the whole production).

Either way, check it out. Toto is soooooo cute. And there were flying monkeys.....Who could ask for more?

Oh I'm glad you thought it was good! I was really worried after seeing the previews. And luckily I don't think Brendan Fraser's lack of accent will bother me (he narrates the second audiobook so I imagine him anyway, and Cornelia Funke modeled Mo after him).

I really like Brendan Fraser. I'm glad he was good in this. I can't wait to see it!
