cocoa, I noticed you haven't seen this yet. Did you plan to keep platinum on the FotW-list? I know you want to. It's only 551 minutes. :P

Bad Armoreska!

I really liked it. I probably won't re-watch it this week, though.

Run time is not a turn-off for me. I'll watch it on Friday if I don't have time to complete it on Wednesday. I just can't do it now because of final exams on Monday and my last week of internship on Tuesday/Thursday.

I bought the DVDs last week, but I don't think I'll rewatch it right now. Great film though. :thumbsup:

I liked the middle section of the three in the movie. The first and last... not so much. 6/10
