It has a Baron Munchausen-y feel that made me really expect to and want to love it. It’s pretty and interesting and well-made, but it just didn’t do much for me.

    I’m glad you felt the same as I did. The movie is amazingly beautiful with some of the most original images I’ve ever seen in a movie (no computer generated effects at all), and the story was pretty good, but after it was over it just didn’t get me like some movies do.
