It looks amazing! But it reminded me quite a bit of the anime Princess Tutu: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHZqxecCukg (this is just a super-awesome amv of it)

I'm surprised no one ever talked about this. I saw it but didn't really like it. It was probably really good at what it was doing, but I just didn't like it.

I actually really liked it. Definitely tense and suspenseful--least for me, anyway.

And it had Natalie Portman in tight-fitting clothes.

...ok, I kid.
......about it being a draw, not the tights. KF

Yeah, I agree. But that was really all it had going for it. I felt completely on edge the whole movie, but the amount of tension seemed to be out of proportion to what was really called for. We get, Natalie Portman's crazy (why else would she have been in the prequel trilogy?). Anything else important going on here? Okay, just keep showing Mila Kunis pop up at suspenseful times.

Again, I think I can understand where it's coming from artistically. It's just not something I can really enjoy, though.
