As embarrassing as it sounds, I've actually been looking forward to this for months after seeing the trailer. I am happy to say it met my expectations. Amy Adams is frickin' awesome (shocking, I know), James Marsden totally redeems himself from being Cyclops, and Patrick Dempsey is effective as the constantly puzzled real-worlder. Timothy Spall totally steals the show every time he's on camera though.
I took my girlfriend to see it, and we both adored it.
During the ballroom dance song, I teared up. It was such a sweet scene.
James Marsden looked like he was having FUN during the movie. And Amy Adams...wow!
(edited by Oliver on 28.11.07 1819) I've seen 17 movies so far this year: Because I Said So - (2*); Borat - (5*); Children Of Men - (4*); Die Hard 4 - (5*); Evan Almighty - (3.5*); Fantastic Four 2 - (4.5*); Hairspray - (5*); Harry Potter 5 - (4*); Knocked Up - (4*); The Last Mimsy - (4*); Mr. Brooks - (4*); Resident Evil: Extinction - (3.5*); Shrek The Third - (3*); Simpsons Movie - (3*); Spiderman 3 - (3.5*); Superbad - (1*); Transformers - (2*)
Adams himself always said that any movie versions would differ from the book, which differ from the tv series, which differ from the radio play which differs from whatever other versions there are. Most important for me will be the vibe.
