WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN- 6.5/10

Technically, this was a very well made and acted film. Tilda Swinton was great as a traumatized, scapegoat figure. John C. Reilly showed pretty good dramatic chops as the oblivious, dumbass dad of an oddball, lunatic son.

I guess I rank this lower becuase it was just too bleak and disturbing to be enjoyable. I know the purpose of the narrative kinda but it was overly dark with very little explanation/ insight as to why.

This is an indy film that it pretty evocative and well-done but it just brought very little entertainment value to the viewer.

For a psychological piece, not enough was donw to make me buy the son's personality.

Man, that movie was very disturbing.

It also produced one of the most disturbing gifs ever:

Gravity gets a solid 7.5/10. Special effects were awesome in IMAX but the main character sucked and even the cool 3d effects couldn't make up for the lack of interesting story and characters

Don't you love finding those overlooked movies, expecting something OK, and then it turns out to be awesome? Not much better in life.

Let Me In - 9/10

The ending was great. The director says you can interpret the ending in two ways.

I personally thought Oskar will now become her caretaker. Its tough though as I thought she actually had feelings for him. I think she was both using him and liked him.

Has anyone seen the American one? Is it any good or is it another bad knock off?
