The critique about Depp doesn't make sense because his song/scene is rife with innuendo.
It seems like I viewed a different movie than this reviewer. Some comments are a bit valid (Depps performance of Hello Little Girl) but others comments just seem like a bitter person who was ready to hate the film no matter what he saw on the screen. In my opinion that is not way a reviewer should do. Review the movie not what you WANTED it to be. My review of you is: you suck as a movie critic.
I buy my hiking boots at Summit Hut. Very knowledgeable folks down there! Read the book, it was outstanding will see the movie soon.
Hope you like it, Ricardo.
"The Babadook" started out creepy and atmospheric enough, but by the midpoint, it telegraphed its punches so clearly that I knew both (a) what was going to happen in the second half, and (b) not to worry too much. Maybe the "child in peril" angle scares parents more than it does those of us who have opted to remain childless. It's a *good* movie all right, mostly thanks to Essie Davis's performance, but I was expecting more based on the critical hype it received.
Just finished reading the book, Wild. Excellent entertainment and sure to be an American classic decades from now ... similar to The Man Who Walked Through Time ... although Wild is written by a better author, a wordsmith. Good job, Cheryl Strayed. I am looking forward to the movie tonight at El Con. Seeing Wild is my 68th birthday present from my wife. We're taking my adult granddaughter.
This movie is probably bad (haven't seen it yet), but some of the comments in this review are as stupid as the movie.
So one of the gripes is that a caveman kills a mammoth because it's an "endangered species" - even though it obviously was not in the era this movie takes place in (not to mention that CAVEMEN had no concept of endangered species - they hadn't even invented the wheel yet). And killing an animal is "murder" now? Seriously.
It sounds like this review was written by a member of PETA.
