Lisbeth Salander: He has had a long standing sexual relationship with his co-editor of the magazine. It destroyed his marriage but not hers. He sometimes performs cunnilingus.... Not often enough, in my opinion.
American History X is filmed in a compelling way, bosts gut-wrenching performances (particularly from Norton), and has a story with an important lesson: that human beings are capable of horrific, monstrous things, but underneath it all we are just broken souls trying to survive. Hatred kills, and love is what saves us.
Moretz and Moore give it a good effort, but this film really isn't anything special or necessary. The original utlimately stands as the better film purely because this film just doesn't change up or add enough to the well-known story to justify it being made. Maybe a little more Margaret White backstory and a little less CGI would make for a better film? In another 20 years, I'm sure we'll see...
If there is any film that can be credited to being nearly perfect in every way, this would be the one. Director Alfonso Cuarón's work is nothing short of breathtaking, and it really is a result of a production that is finessed and refined in every aspect, from the gripping narrative to the quite-literally-out-of-this-world camera work. The vacuum of space has never before been quite so powerfully effective as it is in this film. Steven Price's score fills that empty silence with turmoil, hope, and sheer terror. George Clooney turns in a solid performance as vetern astronaut Matt Kowalsky, but there can be no doubt that Sandra Bullock's Dr. Ryan Stone is the star at the center of this film's universe. Whether you end up seeing it, be it in 2D, 3D, or IMAX, this is a film that quite simply MUST be experienced in a movie theater; though it will most likely blow you away even on DVD. Don't take any one else's word for it, just go and see this movie. You will most likely be viewing a milestone in the history of filmmaking. Exceptional directing, unbelievable cinematography and music, along with THE performance of Bullock's career make this film a real masterpiece that is destined to become a classic, with or without the Oscars.
