See a movie at the right age and you will love it forever. I don't remember exactly how old I was when I saw this movie for the first time on the big screen, but it sure made an impression on me. Sure, it's got it's flaws, but it's so weird and bizarre that it's many charms overcome them. It's so much fun!
I've documented my love of the tentacled monster, the first kraken to be animated, before in this blog, and he's not even featured in the trailer, which made his appearance in the movie a pretty cool surprise.
