Enjoyed the dogs, and great to know Paul Walker was a dog person, read up on him after watching the movie. Our dogs loved the film also, if you can count their barking and whining for the entire 2 hours. My spouse didn't stick around, she was too upset to watch anymore, so not a light movie.

I did realize at the time that this was a PBS-produced docudrama with the *driest* script ever, complete with a talking head introduction from real scientist people. It reminded me of something I might have been forced to watch in a high school history class. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

Ashley H (jp) wrote: Apt Pupil is a decent film. It is about a boy who blackmails his neighbour after suspecting him to be a Nazi war criminal. Brad Renfro and Ian McKellen give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Bryan Singer did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama.

Trista J (ag) wrote: While the acting is nowhere near the best it's still an ok film. It's creepy and the storyline holds up well throughout the entire film. I do like Adam Baldwin but his acting needs some work. It's ok to watch but I will say there are better movies out there.
Courtney S (au) wrote: It's almost impossible to watch this film without thinking of what happened a mere year later in France in 1968. First, a note on the actual watching experience: even a political film studies major found it to drag drag and feel at least two hours long and it feels somewhat like a thesis project and not a theatrical film because it is so obsessed with structure and so stagy. I can say that the film is difficult, but worth the challenge to watch. Godard's politics leak out by the end and upon reflection. If nothing else he says that terrorism is pointless and that these people are totally disconnected from the masses they say they care so much about. The only working class character is a woman who feels like a prop they use in their plays and is often seen in scenes doing domestic labor. Yet she is totally alienated from these people who are obsessed with the theory of making a revolution. I found her, played by Juliet Berto, to be the most fascinating and real character. If you think you'd be interested in a film that is beautifully framed and involves a lot of people walking around reading from the Little Red Book like a religious text, this might be just the movie for you! In many ways it is not that different from other New Wave era films. It's plot light and full of scenes where characters have long, abstract philosophical discussions that don't quite make sense. But rather than reflecting on universal life experiences, which makes so many New Wave films almost accessible, this one is about a particular kind of people radical people. Their passion is so great and their experience so limited that you almost pity them.

I don't have time to go into how much I know the facts and certain people of the "real" Charlie and the criticism of NOT REALLY being related to him, so therefor....I think he portrayed him just coming off a much too arrogant and cocky, I think he tried to put to much emphasis n being sly and slick, so forth. Overall though, as of yet. I see NO ONE toping his performance.

Despite realizing in the first few moments of the 'movie' that it was going to be shot like Quarantine I forced myself to endure. I wish I hadn't. Not only was it NOT scary in the least bit, but the main character grated on my nerves to the point of inducing a migraine.You would think she would be over the stair creaking, door moving "demon" if it's been happening to her since she was eight, but no. She needed to get eaten.

Allan C (br) wrote: I was curious to see this after reading Leonard Maltin's BOMB review who deemed the movie only to have been made to offend audiences. Brad Dourif is a smalltime hood in New Mexico who steals a car and later finds out there was a baby in the car, which he then sells to local crime boss Paul L. Smith (who wants to feed the baby to the pigs) and his girlfriend, David Carradine in drag as Pearl. The film then follows Sonny Boy's abusive upbringing over the years, including cutting out his tongue, which lead to him becoming something of a feral murderous criminal. It's really unclear if the filmmakers were going for black comedy, some kind of surreal horror or merely making as a disturbing, unpleasant slice of life. I really didn't enjoy the film except for (SPOILER!) a climactic shootout between the bizarro family and an angry mob of townsfolk, which reminded me a lot of "The Devil's Rejects." Carradine good in these final moments and elevated the movie to something better than the rest of it's general low quality. Oh, and Sonny Boy does get a new tongue at the end of the film.
