Just back from seeing it. It was quite a marvelous and enjoyable picture. The effects are visually stunning. Victoria has read the book and says it stays quite close with one exception. (I won't tell any spoilers here.) Johnny Depp is a little weird, though. Maybe a little too much. Sometimes just a little creepy, even. Otherwise, do go see it on the big screen. Great eye candy and very well done.
BTW: Trailers included a new Tim Burton film, Corpse Bride, to be released September. Looks like great fun. Very much in the mode of Nightmare Before Christmas. Also coming is a new Wallace & Grommett feature!
