Saw Bridge to Teribithia today.

Really liked it.

Terrible, terrible job of marketing.

Worse marketing than even Serenity. With Serenity you just had no clue what it was about, with this movie they actually convince you it's something that it's not. From the commercials you would think it was The Chronicles of Narnia or Lord of the Rings. I'd read the book in 4th or 5th grade so I knew what it should be about but after seeing the commercials I was certain they had screwed it up. Were it not for the critics' ravings I wouldn't have even bothered with it.

Saddest movie I've seen in theaters since The Green Mile.
