Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal Blu-Ray Review

There have been several live-action translations of Terry Pratchett's Discworld stories so far, and they've really been quite good, but none of them have really captured the essence of the affair like Going Postal. They have largely served as a very good time for those who are already massive fans, but the relation of the splendor has been largely left to the fact that you already read the book in question, and you bring the lion's share of the brilliance with you.

That's still true to some extent here, but it's a much different game. Much of the credit goes to a different style of screenplay translation, focusing more on how to deliver through the medium, as opposed to just making sure the key lines show up. Moreover, the acting, while solid enough in other efforts, including a good turn by Sean Astin, is at a much better level here.
