Hogfather – the Movie

We recently had the pleasure of watching the Hogfather movie. We were excited, because it was a funny book, very Quotable. The other Pratchett movie we saw, The Color of Magic (haven’t read the book), wasn’t very good, though it had some funny bits.

Hogfather is more realistic. Death is perfect. Susan is majestic. Nobby is too funny with his grinning. Mr. Teatime is as creepy as expected. Certain of Pratchett’s quotes were left in.

In a special features interview Pratchett says that he did a bit of consulting for the movie. And the director listened to his advice.

All in all a successful rendition of the story. Here’s hoping for more Pratchett movies done as well as this.

On a side note, we are preparing for our first Hogswatch this year, with a party at the public library and a viewing of the movie.
