sci-fi

Earthsea (Robert Lieberman, 2004)

imdb

I was in the mood for some sci-fi, so I hit up this dvd of Earthsea that I inherited from someone else’s parents.  I’m pretty sure I’d actually seen it before, and it was better than I remembered.  I’ve read some of the books so I knew the context, which I think helped a lot.  I really liked a lot of the themes in the story, and enjoyed the experience overall.  I didn’t realize, when starting it at 10:30, that it was like 137 minutes long.  But yeah, you get some nice special effects, a dragon, an amulet, and some all-around good fantasy fun.
