Finally, FINALLY I can say I liked one of Burton's recent movies. Alice in Wonderland was a major disappointment, so to see him return to this was a relief. I would go see it in theaters while you still have the chance. It brings Burton back to life for those who remember the original concept and any of his old animated movies (Nighmare, Corpse Bride).
"Gleeful violence?" Are you kidding me? Within the first twenty minutes, there's a heavy load of violence, language, and nudity. This is Hollywood at it's worst, in my opinion. Strong cast, great acting, but there's so much violence. I'm not a "pansy" or whatever they call those people who don't handle violence well, but this movie is just too much blood, burning people, guns, and death all around. It's like going to see people killing other people randomly. Many people left the film at the same time we did, probably for the same reasons. Why do movies these days have to have so much gore and blood to be in good standards in the entertainment business? Quite honestly, I would suggest to go see The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but that's just me. That's what I call a perfect, flawless movie. And guess what? No guns! Not a comedy. Really not funny at all, despite the dialogue.
Logan Lerman needs an Oscar for this. The movie needs tons of Oscars for this. Perks of Being a Wallflower is by far the best book to movie adaptation I have ever seen. The acting is amazing. The storyline is as fantastic as it was in the book. I absolutely love it. It's one of my favorite movies now. It deserves every penny and every award it will earn in the future.
