Wintersolstice wants to see the "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" (which we've lovingly dubbed "Sean Connery as Sean Connery in Sean Connery in the Fin de Siecle Sean Connery Vehicle for Sean Connery").

So, erm, has anyone actually seen it?

Winter wants a romp through Victorian England with literary characters brought to life approximately true to the oringinal works.

I've started reading the novelization, and it's really... erm, well, out there. Big plot holes. Characters seem to be written by people who never actually READ the books. Okay, maybe they read graphic novels and watched movies from previous times.

So, it is okay, or is it a straight-to-Rent-One-Get-One-Free-DVD at Blockbuster?

Roger Ebert didn't like it at all and gave it one star. But I've found myself disagreeing with his reviews more lately.

If you only go see one action film this year... Try Pirates of the Caribbean

I enjoyed LXG, I had no back story going into it. The special effects were super rad.

So we will all die of radiation poisening if we go see it. I hate getting super rads. They seem to enhance this growth on my side here.

Don't worry, if you go get the 3D glasses from Spy Kids 3 and wear them during this movie you should be protected from all but the worst super rads.

I didn't like it.
It was a good idea but.... well, it's flawed. I was sickened by how the changed captain Nemo throughout the movie he is portrayed as such a "good guy" although (granted I didn't even read the book, just saw the old movie). In 20,000 leages under the sea he was a pirate and felt no alegence to any one.

Then there's the issue of it always being night time...
