So I got these three movies from NetFlix with high hopes. Smooth Talk is based on the short story by Joyce Carol Oates "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been" I loved the short story but the movie absolutely sucked. Even with the potential from some good actors (Laura Dern,Treat Williams and Mary Kay Place)
Its just one of those bad adaptations from a really great story. They totally changed the ending which just ruined the whole story. I'm getting mad just thinking about it and can't continue.
The Fluffer. . . gee what can I say. . . it sucked. I think that sums it up. Only good thing about this movie was that the porn star was great eye candy (until he dyed his hair). This was the only reason I was able to watch the whole thing.
Home at the End of the World was just such a great story. Didn't read the book this one was based on so no comparisons to tarnish my thoughts. I thought it was really good except I though it ended kind of abruptly. But coming from the life I have lived I felt a great connection with the main character and found myself crying on several occations from the emotional similarities between myself and Bobby.
