When i first watch this movie it thought it was pretty boring, partly because i didnt fully understand what was going on. After i understood the plot better and had a chance re watch it the whole thing made a lot more sense to me. but as to how i felt about it and how i felt while watching it, it is a weird one. Every now and again i read or watch something and just have no emotional feelings about it and just dont feel any connection to it at all. Sleep Hollow was one of those for me. im not sure why but i just found it uninteresting and not engaging to watch. It does have an interesting story in there but you really have to work to find it interesting.
