I really liked this movie. I was again, fortunate to be able to see it in progress, and seeing it in full, I’m left in a similar state. Sort of out of it, melancholy but also sleepy and pleased.
Going along w Celese from the moment of joining the cult to the ascension, I don’t really realize how much I’ve joined up myself. Then the end hits with info I already knew, but is still hard to accept.
Merlin had that blend of live action and cartoony plot, effects, and acting that I really look for amidst a relatively serious plot.
Miranda Richardson was amazing, I was captivated the whole time. This fairly goofy Power Rangers-like villain amongst very played straight fantasy genre heroes was a good choice.
I’m really surprised I haven’t seen this movie before. I’d like to watch it again.
