Music:Say Hi to Your Mom - The Forest Scares the Hell out of Me
I saw Mirrormask, the movie co-written by Neil Gaiman. The visuals were amazing and awe-some, and it's worth seeing the movie for that reason alone. The plot, while entertaining, was your fairly typical "i have to find X so I can get home but evil keeps getting in my way" storyline that we've all seen a million times. But still good. Definitely worth $10 and 2 hours out of my time. I really like the lead actress. I hope she continues to do more. She reminds me of a younger Helena Bonham Carter, her look mostly, though that might be influenced by her character being named Helena. I also saw the preview for The Chronicles of Narnia. Looked impressive.
