Pans Labyrinth

Have any of you seen it? I've seen the commercials for it and I want to see it so badly, but sadly I live in Southern Indiana where it hasnt started playing yet( and might not even play at all!!!). So for any of you that have seen it, is it good!!! It looks amazing and I would really like to know what you think of it.

I've seen it.  It's much like Del Toro's previous work.  I don't know how much I can talk about it without giving it away, but it is among the best movies I've ever seen.

Pan's Labyrinth, entitled El Laberinto del Fauno in Spanish, is a 2006 fantasy film directed by Guillermo del Toro. The film had its premiere in the 2006 Cannes Film Festival and was released in the United Kingdom on 24 November 2006. In the United States, it was initially given a limited release on December 29, 2006; nationwide release will follow on January 19, 2007.[1] The film has received a strong reception from critics around the world, earning a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, with 106/109 positive reviews.[2] It has also been universally acclaimed on Metacritic, earning a score of 97.[3] The film has been chosen as Mexico's entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 79th Academy Awards[4] and was also nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2007 Golden Globes.[5]

In post-Civil War northern Spain in 1944, a 12-year-old girl, Ofelia (Ivana Baquero), moves with her heavily-pregnant mother and stepfather into a new home in the countryside. Her stepfather, Captain Vidal (Sergi López) has been sent to this remote area to rid it of a small Republican militia. Disliked by the sadistic Vidal, Ofelia, who revels in ancient stories and fairy tales, discovers an immense and ancient labyrinth guarded by a faun (Doug Jones). He tells her she is the long-lost daughter of Hades, the Greek god of the Underworld, and to regain entry to her kingdom she must carry out three tasks. So Ofelia enters a strange and no less dangerous world of fairies and extraordinary creatures such as the terrifying Pale Man (also played by Doug Jones).

It is a very good movie.  Very dark  but if you are even slighty into that then its well worth seeing.

I've wanted to see it ever since I read about it on IMDB. The interminable wait for it is causing my soul to slowly wither away!  :'(

I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

Whoot!!!!!!!!!!

Its finally playing somewhere close enough for me to see it!!!!! I think I'll bring my boyfriend and kill two birds with one stone, going on a date and seeing an awsome movie. I heard it was a pretty mature movie too(rated R for a reason). I really cant wait till I see it, probably this weekend. I cant wait, this is going to be so awsome. I actually yelled "Hell Yes" when I checked the showtimes a minute ago. Once again, so excited.

Yep, its in Spanish with english subtitles. Although I watch a lot of anime with english subtitles so that doesnt really bother me. After about the first three minutes I forget that I'm even reading.

Come to a country that doesn't translate everything. Everything expect cartoons are subtitled.
