ok yesterday i watched pan's labyrinth. lemme start by letting you all know......... this movie is in spanish!!!!! it has subtitles. i was soooo eerked when i found that out. they coulda said something on the commercial or something. i was all set to watch this and fold clothes but i couldnt cause i had to read the movie. but this movie is about a little girl whos mom marries a very evil military man. they are on a mountian and there are good guys living there and he is trying to kill them all. she (ofelia) hates this place and her pregnant mother falls very sick. she then finds out she is a princess but in order to return to her world she must compleate 3 tasks. her first task is to save a special tree by crawling in there and putting some stones in a frogs mouth and bringing back the key. she does this but destroys the dress her mother made her. she then helps make her mother better by putting mandrake root under her bed. next her 2nd task was to draw a door and go threw it and do what the faries tell her and not eat anything. well she did what the faires said and she got a dagger from a little door but she ate 2 grapes waking up this baby eating monster and then her door closed so she drew another and got away. however she broke the rules and was told she can never return to her kingdom. then she was going to feed the mandrake root (2 drops of blood a day) and was found by the captian (her new step dad) and her mom got mad and trew the mandrake root in the fire thus killing it. in return she instantly went into labor and died. but had a healthy baby boy. the house keeper lad is the sister to one of the good soldiers living in the woods and decided to go live with them. and was gonna take ofelia with her. but they got caught. ofelia was locked in her room and the housekeeper was about to be torchered. but she kept a knif in her dress just in case so was able to cut her self free and hurt the captian pretty bad and get away. but was surrounded and then the good guys shot all but one of the bad guys. the bad guy went and told the captian there are more good guys and they are outnumbered. all the while ofelia is in her room when she is given another chance to becom a princess. all she has to do is draw a door and get her baby brother and go into the labrynth. she does it and drugs the captians drink in the process. he catches her before she can leave but due to the drugs she has a chance. so he is chacing her trying to get the baby. she gets to the laberynth and is told she has to cut her brother to shed innocent blood on the portial for it to open and she will not do it. so she is left in the laberynth to never be a princess. he father catches her and takes the baby. she tell him to give her the baby and he shoots her too. when he leaves the laberynth he is surrounded by all the good guys and the house keeper he hands over the baby and they kill him. then you fine out the real final task was to sacrifice herself to save an innocent. and she did so she did become a princess. the end.

it was a good movie but i doubt i will ever watch it again. i am not a fan of subtitles. i give it a 3 outta 5 stars
