This was a very good movie. I never heard of this movie so i was watching my tv,lazy day so i left this on my tv and i was really interesting movie. I will give a 9 out of 10
Most people have probably seen The Lovely Bones by now but I will keep the spoilers to a minimum. This film will always be remembered as the breakout role for the incredible Saoirse Ronan. It will also be remembered as one of the most controversial films ever made. People tend to break off into two camps: Team Salmon or Team Harvey.
It starts off innocently enough: a boy-crazy teenage girl in the 1970s is crushing on a man at school. It seems that he is interested in Susie too and despite the disparity in age, she falls for his charms, mostly due to his exchange student allure and suave accent. As the film progresses, it becomes clear that another gentleman is also interested in the nubile teen. His name is Mr. Harvey and he lives in Susie’s neighborhood. Unlike the man from school, Mr. Harvey puts in a tremendous amount of effort in an attempt to win the love of Susie Salmon. He builds her an amazing underground clubhouse, complete with all the stuff young people from that era loved. He had beverages such as Coca Cola that he selflessly shared with Susie as they hung out. It became clear that Mr. Harvey, while having great taste in females, was a bit awkward around them. His nervousness around Susie Salmon was evident and she picked up on that. Girls prefer a man with confidence. I also feel that maybe she was turned off because the Coke that Mr. Harvey gave her was warm. I didn’t see an ice-filled cooler in the clubhouse anywhere. So I think these factors all led to Susie Salmon losing her patience, which erupted in an unfortunate display of rudeness. Mr. Harvey only had one rule in the clubhouse: Be polite. Susie Salmon broke that rule and the series of events that followed spiraled into one great, big, unfortunate chain reaction.
There are no bad people in The Lovely Bones. True, Susie Salmon came off as being a little narcissistic and immature but she was only 14 years old. Mr. Harvey was socially awkward and made some unfortunate choices in life but he had a deep desire to be loved and respected. Despite his talents and generosity, it seemed nobody opened up their heart to him.
The Lovely Bones is a film that will force you to take sides. Whether you end up on Team Harvey or Team Salmon, be prepared for an emotional ride. There are great performances all around. 8/10.
a lot of dream sequences
Although this isn’t really a horror for me still it’s classified under horror. I can understand that some people will find it gruesome due the subject but I must say that it had no drip of red stuff in it. Not that that is important, just look at Texas Chainsaw or Halloween, they were bloodless too. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this creepy flick. It reminded me a lot of The Loved Ones somehow, it must be the use of slow motion and the score. On the other hand it also reminded me of Heavenly Creatures by the way they used the dream sequences. It’s a special flick coming from the hand of Peter Jackson. Knowing him for splatter and gore in his earlier days this could be a let down for some but I really liked it the way it was shot and the use of CGI didn’t bother me at all. Not for everyone but if you can stand weird flicks than this won’t be a problem for you.
An interesting film despite its flaws
The opening narration by fourteen year old protagonist Susie Salmon tells us that she is going to be murdered; this doesn’t take away from the drama it adds to it as there is a sense of dread as she goes with a trusted neighbour to the place she will die. Even though we know she is going to die it initially looks as if she has got away from the man but it soon becomes apparent that something isn’t right; she runs through almost empty streets and the few people she sees don’t appear to notice her. By this time she is late home from school and her parents are starting to panic; it is only a matter of time before the police find her hat and a large quantity of blood; there is no sign of her body though. As time passes her father finds it harder and harder to move on; constantly calling the police with his latest theory as to who might have done it. His wife can’t take it any more and moves out shortly after her mother moves in. All the while it looks as though the killer is taking an interest in another potential victim; Susie’s sister Lindsey. All the while this is going on Susie is somewhere between this life and an afterlife; another girl, who calls herself Holly Golightly, tries to guide her onwards but she isn’t ready; not until her family have come to terms with what has happened.
I had heard fairly negative comments about this but thought I’d give it a go as I’d enjoyed Saoirse Ronan more recent performance in ‘Hanna’ and while it had its faults I thought it was a good film. I really cared about the characters and thought the depiction of the family’s reaction to their loss was very believable, equally I thought the depiction of the killer as a rather bland person rather than either an obvious monster or a charismatic charmer was realistic. The acting was solid throughout; Saoirse Ronan brought an ethereal quality to the role of Susie and Mark Wahlberg put in a suitably emotional performance as her father. The film wasn’t just an emotional drama; there were also some genuinely scary bits such as when her sister went into the killer’s house and it looked as though he would catch her. Those are the good things; on the negative side the depiction of the afterlife with its vivid colours and copious CGI didn’t work for me. Over all I think it was better than I’d heard and is well worth watching despite its flaws.
