So I saw the movie tonight... it was kind of a disappointment. The costumes were STUNNING, but they took out pretty much everything that made the book so enjoyable for me. They also changed the plot DRASTICALLY. Really, the only similarities were the title and characters. I don't want to give any spoilers, though. It was just OK. If you haven't read the book, you'll probably enjoy it a lot more than I did, but for fans of the book who, like me, have read it several times, it's probably going to leave you feeling a little disappointed.

*Sigh.* I really wanted this movie to be great! Natalie Portman was good, Scarlett Johannsen was just OK, and Eric Bana was virtually a nonentity. I don't know-- I wouldn't say "don't see it," but just don't go in expecting the same experience you'd get from the book.
