    This Got Me Hooked On Terry Pratchett

    This movie was hilarious and kept my attention the entire time. Death and his cohort made the movie. After viewing this, I decided to read the book. (As we all know, the book is ALWAYS better than the movie.) My thinking was, if the book was 1/2 as good as the movie, it was going to be a good read. Hmmm. This actually ended up being more of a review on the book. Oh wel!! They were both highly entertaining.

    which to do first: read book or watch movie?

    I started reading the book and a little more than halfway thru decided to watch the movie. Of course, like most books gone movie, there are always some slight discrepancies. A few minor characters were missing, the plot didn't unfold quite the same way, but each item that was different, you know why they couldn't portray it the same way. Some things in a sci-fi book are better imagined by your mind.
    After I finished watching the movie, I dove back into the book and was able to have a different perspective. This was the first Discworld movie I had watched and was excited to see how the characters, voices, races, and cities were portrayed. It was exciting to view the details. All in all: if you've read the book, the movie will provide fun enlightenment and spark conversation between readers. If you haven't read the book, it's a very entertaining, unique movie with comedy for both young and young at heart with some references especially comedic for adults (not mature, but just over kid's heads).

    The one con or plus (depending on who you are I guess) is the length of the movie... It is extremely long! But divided into two parts.

    Disc World fantasy come alive.

    This film reaches back into the imagination and gives new meaning to the name Tooth Fairy and adds a personality to Death. The film won my heart when some of the bad guys get what's coming to them via their worst childhood nightmares. The good guys are a bit strange and unusual yet I would really want them on my side. What child or child at heart wouldn't love having a Governess that beats up monsters with a poker? That Death steps in to fill the Hogfather's shoes so children will not be disappointed is so bizarre but caught my attention. The laughs really start because He doesn't really understand the job, but really gives it his best to the dismay of a local store and the parents who brought their children in to sit on the Hogfather's knee. If the parents have any idea of what their children really want, they wouldn't let them near this year's toy store Hogfather. He takes them at their word, literally. This film gives a face to many of the characters my family and I have grown to love in the Disc World books. I loved it.

    One of My Favorites

    This movie made me an instant fan of Terry Pratchett. I watched it on TV for the first time earlier this year and I was hooked. The plot, in a nutshell, is this: the Discworld's answer to Santa Claus, the Hogfather, has disappeared, so Death fills in for him (who better for the job?). Meanwhile, Death's granddaughter, Susan, looks for the missing gift-giver. The characters are fantastic, especially Death. I can't recommend it enough. If you enjoyed the movie, then you should definitely read the book as well. Or anything by Terry Pratchett, for that matter. (I've read about ten Discworld books and they've all been hilarious)

    Hogfather

    The story line was great, it puts a twist on Santa Clause. I really enjoyed the movie I just wish to price was a little lower.

    Terry Pratchett Comes to Life

    I actually read the book by Terry Pratchett before watching the film, although I bought the book because I saw a trailer for the film, so I guess you could say that these are forever linked in my mind. Terry Pratchett is an amazing author. His books are clever, witty, thought-provoking, and exciting. This film adaptation of what I consider to be one of his best novels does not disappoint. The characters are spot on, the dialogue follows closely to the novel, and the film brings Discworld to life for all of its fans. Watch this movie and read the book and you will not be disappointed!

    I LOVED IT

    It was a different take on a classic story, and it kept me watching the whole time. I saw it in two parts on cable and couldn't wait for the next part to air to find out what happens.
