Last night we rented the movie Inkheart. Before I start raving on about how brilliantly awesome it is, let me just add that this is one movie where you don't have to have read the book to understand.

(fantasy action, scary moments, & brief language)

When Mo Folchart accidentally reads some potentially menacing villains and a bitter fire-eater out of a book, he has to protect his daughter at all costs. Twelve years later, they find him, and threaten to hurt those he loves unless he reads out the worst villain of all-The Shadow. Filled with love of the written word, magic, and an awesome character named Dustfinger, the movie grabs you in from the beginning. It begins with a secret...and who doesn't love those? (Personally, Dustfinger's my favorite. I just love characters with sad histories and a little fault.)

Edit: However, I forgot to mention that while Paul Bettany was an perfect Dustfinger, the movie was a bit more of a magic kiddie show than the Fantasy Epic that the book is.


I Am An Otter

You're an otter, mate! Another good friend of Redwall, you are a natural swimmer and a deadly fighter especially with a long bow or javellin. Camp Willow is your home, just as Redwall is your second home. You have a good heart and a strong sense of loyalty. You absolutely love Shrimp and Hotroot soup, living by the motto "Ain't nothing 'otter for an Otter!".
