How to begin well I didn't read or hear any spoilers on this movie. You maybe wondering how will anyone who knows me, knows I have a 2 1/2 and 14 month old. With that said the only channel I allow on is nick jr. So I never get to watch anything until late at night when they are sleeping and I never watch live tv anymore.
I knew from the title that this movie was going to have a sadness to it. I am not a emotional person to begin with and it is very rare that I cry although the Notebooks still brings tears to my eyes. But even though I didn't cry the performance of Robert and his little sister delivered the emotion that meant to be. There is so many broken families now days that it saddens me when I think of the lack of communication that is in a household. Robert out did himself in this film. I was never one to even question that man if he was going to always remind me of Edward. Sorry but I had confidence and knew that man had talent and never doubted it.
I really liked the dynamic between Robert and Emillie. I liked how both of them had experienced loss and guided one another out of the emotional burden they shared. It was nice to see the different levels that a relationship can take. And the umm.... bedroom scene well I don't have a pg13 mouth so I guess I can't comment.
Those girls at the private school made me so mad that even though I would love to slap the smirks off their face the way Pierce handled it had a much more of a long term effect.
Normally I am good with figuring out movies which makes hub annoyed at times , that I have to keep quiet so I don't ruin the film however I was not expecting September 11 a part of this movie. Maybe that is why I didn't cry and the way it ended with Tyler's death it didn't bother me. Let me explain I think the whole point of the end was not to focus on Robert's character and how we wished they had a happy ending it was to remember September 11 and what happened that day. Cause when camera started zooming out and I realized his father's office was in a Trade Center building I grabbed my heart.I had the same reaction to the live footage that day. I will never forget the feeling it brought out in me. It was a very deep sadness to those people and their families who would get a phone call when they got home. I remember people jumping out of the building and that burned a permeant image that could never be forgotten.
