This is a fantasy movie with comic elements and airship pirates. Obviously, I was going to like it. Although I think I liked the little grace notes (like the performances of the ghosts) more than the movie as a whole, if that makes sense. There were a lot of little things I liked a lot.

I thought it was going to be an empty theater, because I saw it at 12:40 on a Sunday, the week after it opened to what I'd heard were very small audienced. But our theater was almost packed. Weird.

Interesting - I saw it last Sunday, in the middle of the afternoon as well, and our theater was also nearly full. I wonder if this is one of those movies that doesn't make a big splash opening weekend, but lingers in the top 20 for weeks and weeks.
