I've FINALLY saw it too. And I'm very happy i got the chance to see it after all. Cause it never appeart in the German Cinemas. well..
I've read the book as well,and i thought Bruce did a great job, putting it into a movie. I totally loved that whole location and the feeling,which was in the movie too. Great,GREAT soundtrack,very fitting. And loved all the performances!!
And his Ichabod Crane face, too, Amp! The scene where he's cowering in fear in front of the voodoo priestess, reminds me exactly of when Ichabod Crane freaked out over seeing that spider in his bedroom. I was waiting to see if he'd faint in TRD after she blew that frog out of her mouth and he almost s**t his pants!
