Perfume of the Day: Alien

Getting the easy ones out of the way before Arisia. I honestly don't know if I'll get the six Patricia McKillip books reviewed before then, but at least that will be all I'll have backlogged since I'm still amidst a leisurely reread of Madouc.

1/2/11 Sarah McLachlan

This was a very good show. I found the vocals a bit murky in the 'electric' songs, but otherwise the show was professional and well-performed. It all brought me back to writing/reading fanfic in the early 2000s. Just how many Draco and/or Snape songfics were written to 'Fallen'? Or 'Building a Mystery'? I had 'Answer' on my writing playlist. I still have a few of her songs on my writing playlists.

**** Stars.

HP: Deathly Hallows 1

It has been a long time since I saw this. As I recall I had no serious complaints. My biggest one was actually in the treatment of Dudley, of all people. I liked how Harry and Dudley left things in the book. Here it was just rushed through meaninglessly. A little more there and a little less camping would have gone a long way. I know there was a lot of camping in the book, but they could have cut it down a bit more without losing anything important. I also missed seeing Luna's room. Otherwise I found the movie reasonably well done. Hopefully they will pull it all together well in the final movie.

**** Stars.

Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader

We saw this on Christmas night. Unfortunately I was a little too late to see it in Hooksett so it ended up being Concord on a tiny screen. It was quiet, though. The movie was entertaining and fun to watch, with good effects and a mostly well-paced story. It suffered from my being deeply entrenched in the world of Lyonesse, but I had no complaints.

**** Stars.
