I won't be recommending The Secret of Moonacre, the next time someone asks for a movie rec. I won't even be rushing to watch it again myself.
But, have to say...since I *did* end up watching it, at least once, my virtue was rewarded....the costumes, at least for Maria Merryweather, the heroine, were enough to catch my breath.
Even the undies looked really cool. :p
The rest of the characters, not as much. The male counterpart, sorry, looks like a cross between The Artful Dodger, and that guy in A Clockwork Orange. Except when he was wearing a stripe across his nose, for no discernible reason.
Some of the sets were pretty amazing, too..(You can click all these pics for a much larger version to see the details properly..I really recommend it)
And the gates, I loved the gates! How neat are they??
So, yeah...if you have an hour or two to kill, and want to see some pretty eye candy (better than my lousy screencaps here), you MIGHT wander over to the kiddie aisle at Blockbuster. Just don't say I didn't warn you. :p
