Overlooked by most of the Oscar voters, except for me, "The Book Thief," is in my Top Ten movies of last year. A great story, well written, well told and well acted. Newcomer Sophie Nelisse gave, in my opinion, the best performance by an Actor 21 years and under. Because of its historical value, this is a must for your home video library. Buy, don't rent!
If you enjoy folk singers from the 60's, you'll enjoy this movie. If not, don't waste your time or money. John Goodman steals the movie. A bit dark and depressing at times, but overall a movie worth seeing. I suggest you rent, not buy..
Very gritty! Very dark. Very depressing! Great cast, but not good enough to save this downer. If it were Christmas time, I'd say "Bah Humbug," you'll probably like this movie, if you're into blue collar drama. But not enough to buy, I say rent.
An excellent mixture of animation, action, adventure and comedy for the entire family. I'm betting your kids will want to see it twice. I kind of like Sherman, as he looks like I did in junior high. Need proof? Check out this page for a side-by-side look.
