Whilst I wouldn't care to be examined by a telepath, I doubt that my passing thoughts are quite that nakedly self-incriminatory.

I thought that the prospect of spoilers wasn't fearsome given that I had little intention of seeing this anyway, but I'm definitely not now.

Is the Alt text an intentional Pratchett quote?

Saw it last night, was bored, and totally vindicated in my original impressions. They didn't even manage to have any halfway decent witty dialog in between the extended (oh boy, were they extended) song and dance numbers.

I have watched the trailers for this and then been baffled by the near-hysterical anticipation it has generated in others. It looks pretty as hell, but like a triumph of style over substance. I guess now I'll go see it for the ending, on a cheap day.

"For" as in "because of" - see #4 here https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/for . Also quite an interesting discussion here http://www.waywordradio.org/discussion/topics/you...
Note that this phrase dates back to at least 1564, so it's not so unusual that it might sound a bit odd to modern ears.
