Remember that I watched The Wolfman last weekend? I am just now getting the chance to tell you about it. All this traveling around is really interfering with my blogging. Boo hiss.
Now, did you ever watch that Sleepy Hollow movie? The one with Johnny Depp? If you did, and you liked it, you will really like The Wolfman too. It has that same "grey" overtone to it. Very dark and overcast in appearance. Taking place in 1891, and full of mystery and intrigue. Legend and lore ruled the talk in the taverns, and anything that could not be explained was attributed to ghouls and goblins. And sometimes. Just sometimes. Those legends turn out to be true...
I enjoyed the movie. I enjoyed it on a Sunday evening, in the comfort of my living room with a fire in the fireplace. I found the imagery to be beautiful. I wanted the movie to end differently than it did. I was taken aback when something is revealed towards the end of the movie. It was not a "MUST SEE", but certainly a "WORTH SEEING" in my book.
So, for imagery that transported me to another time and another place. And for my love of England, and especially England in 1891. And for giving new life to an old tale, and casting characters who I found to be completely believable, I hereby award The Wolfman:
