Just watched Pan's Labyrinth.
My friend told me it was kind of arty and mystical and fable-y. She told me in a way that did not sound like those were good things, but I watched it anyway because I had heard it was really good.
To me, "really good" means enjoyable, fun to watch, and I will laugh at least once during the movie.
I forget that "really good" to the rest of the world means "makes you think" but what they are really saying is it will depress you and somebody likeable will definitely die but the film will be nominated for an award so it must be "really good."
When will I learn to just stick with romantic comedies and sci-fi?
BTW, if you plan to watch Pan's Labyrinth, be warned it is in Spanish with English subtitles so you have to pay attention throughout the entire movie.
