I saw The Woman in Black tonight! I loved it! Daniel Radcliffe is brilliant.
I thought the movie was really interesting because in a way, it was sort of enchanting and charming while somehow still being morbid.
Just the whole old British countryside with the old train and the typewriter and the lace and tea kettles was lovely. The marsh was actually really beautiful! And I love the fog and the old mansions. The graveyard was really actually very pretty.
Don’t get me wrong, it was still scary and rather horrifying, but it was what I like to call morbidly lovely. I guess I just kind of like eerie, creepy things.
Many people disliked the ending, but I thought it was absolutely perfect. So I’ll let you dwell on that a bit.
The only thing that bothered me had nothing to do with the movie…
It was more the audience’s reception to it.
If you go on Tumblr and look at The Woman in Black tag, a fair amount of it is about Harry Potter.
Or even if you look at the movie reviews online on Yahoo or Fandango or anything, there’s nearly always a reference to Harry Potter.
While I can understand the enthusiasm over Harry Potter and Daniel Radcliffe, I think people seem to be ignoring the fact that Daniel Radcliffe made a movie, Harry Potter didn’t make a movie.
And I think it’s perfectly okay to forever associate Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, as long as it’s among other things like Arthur Kipps and J. Pierrepont Finch, because he truly is brilliant in everything, and he deserves credit for all of those roles as well!
