Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - DVD (2011)
Hmmm , this one confused me a little bit. I had tried to read the book a couple of years ago, but gave it up after a few pages as it didn't really grip me. I felt the same about the movie in fact, after starting it, I thought about abandoning the movie several times.
For me, it felt like it should have been a little indie movie, but instead we got Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock with old cardigans and unbrushed hair, wow - what amasing character actors they are,
The main problem though, for me was the main character who somehow I thought should have been sad and vulnerable, but instead I just found him annoying and whiny. Is that wrong, to judge a child? I just think the direction on this movie was misplaced, and all the things that could have been a bit of magic were just a bit lost. 2/5
