Ripley's movie review

I mentioned to Newt recently that it had been a long time since a movie made me say "wow".

Truly magical with a fascinating, well-told story. I liked the way they switched between reality and imagination and the costumes were great. Depp and Winslet were good, Highmore was outstanding, and Christie was perfect. Hoffman was a bad casting decision but he had a small part and was easily ignored.

As both Ice and I said when it was over... wow.

Newt's movie review

It's fun, has sad bits and unhappy bits, and was deserving of its Best Picture nomination. The music was excellent, the costumes extraordinary, Depp's accent was good, Winslet was great, but Freddie Highmore was amazing. See this one.
