Mirrormask to open in Madison!

Mirrormask, a movie based on the book of the same title by Neil Gaiman, is set to open in Madison on Friday, October 21 (two days from now) at Marcus Westgate Art Cinemas! I’ve been really wanting to see this movie. It’s gotten great reviews, the author actually likes it and felt it represented his vision well, and it looks really really amazing in all the previews. The book is really cool. I haven’t gotten to read it completely yet, but I have scanned through it some at work. It just looks so neat! A co-worker of mine commented that it would have been nice if the book had been bigger, like some of Gaiman’s picture books, and I agree. I understand why they decided to do it this way (at least, the most likely reasons), but I generally think putting marketing reasons ahead of design choices in cases like this is stupid and short-changes the work and the author. Oh well. At least I get to see the shiny shiny movie! I’m really excited! Yay!
