Best Neil Gaiman Film

I was thinking about all the movies made from Neil Gaiman stories, and it struck me that my very favorite one--the one I truly think is the best of all of them--is the one that gets the least attention. When I see people discussing Gaiman movies, they always mention the decent but not great ones, like Stardust or Coraline, but they never mention Mirrormask.

If you haven't seen Mirrormask, do yourself a favor and give it a try. It's surreal but also gorgeous and amazing.

Today is the day my youngest son turns 18, and we're very proud of him. He was valedictorian at his graduation, and he's off to start Political Science at UMass Amherst this August. He got accepted to Georgetown as well, which he really wanted, but it just wasn't affordable, sadly.

  1. Congratulations to your son.
    Out of those three I would definitely pick Mirrormask. I watched it originally because it was done by Jim Henson Company.

    1. I only stumbled upon it by accident and didn't even know it was Gaiman at first. It sure is amazing.

  2. Congratulations to your son. Thanks for the movie recommendation. My husband and I don't see that many movies, but we are always influenced by recommendations. I'm guessing it's on video.
