What do you think? I think it sounds pretty interesting. The topic is definently one that interests me. And on top of that, the special effects team is apparently Weta Workshops. ;)

It looks sorta cute. I saw the book in an Oregon bookstore and flipped through it - it's by Dick King-Smith so it'll probably be a pretty charming story. :)

That does look good. It's about Nesie! Or looks like it... this would be the first time I've heard of Nesie being a water horse... But it looks cool! And the graphics being made by Weta? *can't wait to see it*

Yeah, I've always been really intrigued by Nessie.

It looks pretty interesting, Nessie has never been something I was really interested in, since I think that the legend has been told one too many times. But, I'd probably go see it, just for something to do.

EDIT: The reason that it is probably called "The Water Horse" is because Nessie is often, and still is, described as a creature with the head of a horse, the fins of a fish and the body of a snake. At least thats how I remember it being described.

alex etel (the main boy in it) was in a recent bbc drama, and i thought he was a good little actor. very natural and endearing.

It was pretty good! Not a waste of two hours or anything. I don't regret going to see it, even though it made me cry. :P I might rent it and watch it again when it comes out on DVD, even though it wasn't my absolute favorite movie.

I saw it about a week ago. The effects were really good and it was overall just a FUN movie. :D Especially if you love all the stories about Nessie, you'll enjoy it. It has a lot of stuff worked into it (like famous fakes pictures). ;)

Yup! I just saw it last night! It was really good! Like someone mentioned, it's not my all time favorite movie, but I love it! Nessie is SO CUTE as a little youngster! Adorable! I loved how they worked the legend into real history. Great effects, and awesome music. All in all, wonderful movie.

I saw it for the first time when the library in my town played with on a huge outdoor screen in the park down the street from my house. I was blown away and fell in love with it! I still love it to this day, and I watch it often.
