I'm sorry to say that this is not the movie you will be watching. The movie you are about to see is extremely unpleasant.

OK...I really enjoyed the film and I felt it captured everything I wanted it to about the books and more. However, and while it may be an odd thing to say, is that was the best set of credits I've ever seen.
They were beautifully done, well done to whoever it was that created them...the artwork was spectacular and the animation perfectly in tune with the tone of the books.
very entertaining...well done!
