Seem They Added Some Extra Steamyness This Time:

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Mrs. Hudson (the younger) and I attended a showing of this film yesterday, and indeed there is much to make steampunks drool (just pretend you've never heard of CGI).

One should decativate one's purist gland before viewing - other than somebody called Alice passing through mirrors and there being various queens and Cheshire cats and differently-brained makers of hats on the other side there's not much of Lewis Carroll in there, but it's not a bad story and looks wonderful.

My purist gland was able to handle all this, plus it not being called Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, but I did have trouble with a certain dragon-like creature referred to as 'the Jabberwocky'.  It's the Jabberwock, dammit; the poem is Jabberwocky.

Ahem.  Sorry, got a bit carried away there.

Anyway - entertaining film; worth a look.

Whatever did we do before retro-futurism?
