    ★★★★★

    The first time I saw this I was eight years old. Unforgettable. I never understood why she had to go back to get the cat. Until a couple of years ago when I moved in with a girl who happened to own one. So today I'm a cat owner who's scoopin' poop on a daily basis. However, when you're that close to another life-form you really develop a bond. I'd never dream of abandoning that grumpy thing on a spaceship ready to blow with a hostile alien being the only company.

    So now, in my eyes, ALIEN really is a 100% perfect film.

    After eight years, it's a bit of a letdown to find that PAN'S LABYRINTH really isn't a film about any labyrinth of Pan's but rather a film about a Spanish fascist general killing or torturing a bunch of people. In the confused moral landscape of the film, fascism seems to constitute "reality"; so I guess we're all fascists at heart, unless we live in fantasy worlds of course.

    The film is imaginative but I found it to be a bit…
