Many others have said that horror and comedy are the two hardest types of writing to do, with comedy being the hardest of all. If this movie is an accurate reflection of the original (and I don't see how it couldn't be) then Kipling was a genius at both. The entire story is an understated comic masterpiece that still manages to be chilling, especially at the end. "Peachy screamed and screamed" gives such a vivid picture in so few words.
More than 4 stars, but not quite "zomgthiswasthebestthingevor", so I couldn't round it up to 5. Still, based on this experience, I'm planning to kiple this weekend at the library.
I started the icosahedron in 9" paper. I got a lot further than ever before and I think the reason is that the Connoisseur book has much clearer instructions. Still, step 12 totally stumped me. Speaking of comic geniii, that step has 8 folds and two tucks (which doesn't even include the folds that must be going on on the other side but aren't shown) with the words "Take it one fold at a time" as the instructions.
Maybe if I compare the two sets of instructions I'll be able to tell what to do.
