I've heard some vague comparisons to Excalibur, as it's been a long time since we've had a good dark R-rated fantasy movie. I'm really looking forward to his. I love Dev Patel as an actor.

Oh, you know I will.

waiting on you Chap! This movie’s reviews were so ridiculously out of this world that I’m super curious to hear if it comes close to living up to the hype.

So ok.

What a movie. If you go into it thinking it’s going to be like Lord of the Rings you will be disappointed. This is an art film that amazingly got mainstream marketing.

Beautiful film but a bit slow and long, like art films tend to be. The supernatural aspects of the film are part of the world, so they don’t really concentrate on it to say, “Hey look at us! We can have great CGI!”

Acting and direction is great but there are 2 main strengths: cinematography and sound design. The sound was spectacular.

I think this film has a good chance of being a big player at the oscars.
