So I haven’t had a chance to see it yet, but I’ve heard some interesting stuff about Gnomeo and Juliet. I’ve been trying to talk my 5year old into going but he’s just not interested. Despite the fact that he’s obviously a gnome aficionado. He keeps telling me we should just buy it on dvd – I’ve trained him well.
When I first heard about it, I had mixed feelings. On one hand if it’s good, it might make the demand for gnome-related entertainment go up (I know, how can it get any higher, right… we’re in a gnome renaissance) which can only help gnome-themed comic strips. But on the other hand, if it sucks it could potentially put people off of our pointy-hatted friends. After thinking about it a bit, the fact that decent money was invested to make a movie about gnomes has to be a good thing. I’ve heard mixed reviews about it, but it seems like a fun story… even if they got a lot of the facts wrong
So I’m looking forward to checking it out. If anyone has seen it, I’d love to hear what you thought.
