Audience Reviews for Hogfather

  • Jun 06, 2009
    Based on a novel by Terry Pratchett, Hogfather is an excellent fantasy film. Michelle Dockery as Susan was an inspired choice, played her role brilliantly. I rather enjoyed how they took on the challenge of personifying Death, the voice over by Ian Richardson, was the best choice. I was very impressed by the performance of Teatime, played by Marc Warren, with his sinister laughter, weird, oddly paired eyes and strangeness. Excellent screen play. I also enjoyed observing the setting for Death's residence, the Toothfairy Castle, Hogwash etc. It was detailed and carried on the air of magic that was needed. Highly saturated with myth and folklore and that complemented the work of Terry Pratchett well. Not a disapointing adaptation at all. If you havent, do yourself a favor and read the book before watching this-makes a hell of a lot more sense. The film adaptation is divided into two parts, each being close to 90mins long, so expect to spend a total of 3 or so hours getting through this. Not a bad adaptation. The producers did the best they could and they did a good job. So dont complain about how hard it was to follow the storyline because you were not aware of Pratchett's work before. You should definitely take time out and see this. <b>Oh, and HAPPY HOGSWATCH </b> <i>Death: Humans need fantasy to *be* human. To be the place where the falling angel meets the rising ape. Susan: With tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Death: Yes. As practice, you have to start out learning to believe the little lies. Susan: So we can believe the big ones? Death: Yes. Justice, mercy, duty. That sort of thing. Susan: They're not the same at all. Death: You think so? Then take the universe and grind it down to the finest powder, and sieve it through the finest sieve, and then show me one atom of justice, one molecule of mercy. And yet, you try to act as if there is some ideal order in the world. As if there is some, some rightness in the universe, by which it may be judged. Susan: But people have got to believe that, or what's the point? Death: You need to believe in things that aren't true. How else can they become? </i>

    If you liked the Terry Pratchett books, you will like this. I have seen much worse mainstream sci-fi movies than this movie release straight to DVD.

    A quirky mix of characters and a sometimes bizarre plot <i>(Probably intended? - I haven't read Pratchetts books)</i>. This had a similar feel to it as <b>City of the Lost Children</b> which I didn't particularly enjoy. I did like the characters Death, Albert & Susan. Death taking the role of the Hogfather and embracing it was quite good. However, Mr. Teatime just grated on me - he was almost a copy of Johnny Depp's Wonka with that hideous vioice!! Very hit & miss, not advisable to watch this in one sitting because it seemed to drag on & on - I wanted to like this more than I actually did.
