This movie was well acted and I appreciated the use of colour and light. However, the story itself was rather confusing. I mean, I think i understand most of it, however there are still scenes where I am not entirely sure what really was happening or if what I was seeing was real or not. So its a little bit odd, but not all that bad.
What did this movie teach me? We all have needs.

This movie was creepy - as expected. I really liked Matthew Goode and his character. Nicole Kidman's character was rather annoying. And Mia Wasikowska was interesting, though strange. The story wasn't exactly what I expected, so that was a pleasant surprise. I think the one thing that bothered me most though is that a lot isn't explained - motivations that is. We never really understand *why* the characters are the way they are/do the things you do. In some cases it was little things (like why doesn't he eat dinner?) but other times it was huge plot points that lacked explanation. That irked me. The soundtrack was pretty good - fitting. And there were a few really disturbing yet beautiful scenes. It's kind of an artists film - in the way it's directed/filmed - and not everyone will like that.
All in all, not bad, but not great either.
What did this movie teach me? Don't mess with creepy kids at school, or you may end up dead.
Beautiful. Heartwarming. Heartbreaking. So incredibly moving. This movie touched my soul. The story is so genuine and inspiring. The acting was very well done - very believable. The score was stunning (had me sold not even five minutes in to the movie). The storytelling and the way it was all put together was also really well done. I know that not everyone will love this movie - possibly because of the Christian themes - but for me, it was beautiful.
What did this movie teach me? You are never alone.
This wasn't nearly as funny as I'd thought it would be. Some of the better bits were in the trailer. It was predictable, a little stale, and just not that hilarious. Stephen Merchant's character got annoying really quickly. Minnie Driver was one of my favourites. It did have some entertaining/funny moments, just not that many. All in all, not bad, but not great either.
What did this movie teach me? Even though two people may seem to hate each other, they might actually be in love. (I don't really agree with this, but it's the message I got).
