One of the best movies ever made, if not the best. The acting is perfection. The feel of the south during the depression leaves an indelible mark in the heart and mind. The scenery of an old south town brings back memories of my grandparents and parents as they grew up in a town that could have been the exact likeness of this. Stories and memories from my childhood come to life in watching the scenes, activities, and chilhood games.
I really enjoyed this movie. LaBoeuf does a great job of the insecure young man, but he never really makes the transition to the hardened man that his brothers were, maybe that was the point of the character. I recommend this movie.
There were some really funny parts to this movie, and some laughs that fell short. Some overt belittling and condescension of Christians. But hey the fool has said in his heart there is no God. Did it offend me - a bit - but not enough that I wasn't able to really appreciate the funny parts of this movie.
Wow...??? I can't believe all the high ratings on this. These folks must have been watching a different movie. The CGI - was... un... horrible - it was like watching Team Jacob chasing Liam through the woods. It was boring, lack of any good story line, one of Liam's worst movies, - maybe 15%... Fortunately, I was wearing my 3 wolf moon T-shirt and I felt like imprinting with the wolves up until I actually saw one on the big screen. I felt like someone stole my wolf soul from me. My amber eyes turned red. I thought "brothers - I am embarassed for our wolf nation". (a similar feeling I experienced when I first saw Jacob translate into a wolf). I was really pulling for my wolf brothers to munch on Liam and get "taken" back to the little cubs at the wolf lair, partially alive, ...Here are some Neeson kibbles and bits my little cublings. And then I began to howl when Liam strapped on mini liquor bottles - the anguish was too much. I began to go into a furious wolf rage at the thought of being sliced with broken mini's. I started urinating in every corner of the theater - I wasn't marking my terrority - I was just too lazy to run on all fours to the restroom. Fortunately I looked down and saw my 3 wolf moon T-shirt and my sanity was restored, but not with the movie. It blew chunks.
