Me 2012

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Saturday morning, Lut and I went to see The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

I had very high hopes for this movie. I love fantasy, Alan Moore -- who wrote the graphic novel on which this film was based -- is an excellent writer, I have a great fondness for 19th century literature, and, as lady_anne put it: "Personally, I'd pay to watch Sean Connery read the labels on cereal boxes".

On the whole, the film was enjoyable and worth seeing, but I wasn't as happy with it as I'd hoped to be. It was, however, at least as good as "Terminator 3" or "X-Men 2". (Or X-Men 1, for that matter. Not as good as, say, "Terminator 2", though.)
