I saw CP today too. I really wanted to like it, but... Well, don't get me wrong, it wasn't terrible, and I agree that it was probably better than the reviews said. Still, I felt kind of underwhelmed throughout the movie. I dragged a friend along (she's not a fan of TH, or of any other actor in CP, for that matter) and she got bored halfway through. I, of course, had the disadvantage of seeing the trailers and reading a couple of reviews, so sort of spoilered myself and take a part of the blame - maybe I would have liked it better if I haven't.

Those CGI ghosts were really ridiculous. After the movie my friend asked me if I understood why they looked the way they looked (I won't be specific to avoid spoilers if anyone hasn't seen the movie yet). You see, she kept waiting for the explanation of that in the plot and got none. All I could do is shrug my shoulders and say that the creators probably thought that they would be cooler or scarier that way :)

On the bright side - the visuals were beautiful. I loved the spooky deteriorating mansion, very atmospheric. TH was pretty.
