Just got home. I read the book before and all I can say is wow. The story is streamlined just enough so the movie dosent drag (there are a few slow parts) and the actors look like they came right out of the book. It has a lot of references to the book and might lose people who haven't read it before. I'd say a 4of5 for people who read the book before and a 3of5 for those new to the story.

Just wanted to make a note that this is truly an adult movie, some of the most memorable and disturbing scenes from the book made it into the movie. Not something I'd take a teen to, but then some teens are more mature than some of the people who were in the theatre last night. I may be going to see it again tonight, a friend of mine wanted to go last night but couldnt due to work this morning. Still just kinda in awe of how it the movie came out and the visuals.....leaves an impression.

I saw it last night and it was excellent, some stuff different like everyone says but overall very enjoyable. I like the graphic novels ending better though.

Mmmm. I still want to see it.

My friend says there is big blue dick in about 60% of the movie.

...That's not why I want to go or anything, but...

Uhh...I heard it was good.
