One Sentence: I am still covered with emo. 

Well I am surprised to see that the running time of this movie according to IMDB was 94 minutes, becuase the movie I saw felt like 3 hours.  3 Long, rage and whining filled hours.  The unchecked rage and emotion of a 9 year old, blended with a slow boring story, and oozing with a non-stop hipster soundtrack made for a movie that was the complete opposite of the timeless classic book this movie was based on. After getting out of the theater I felt bored, and glad the movie was over.  It didn't provide me with anything that I felt like was innovative, thoughtful or interesting.  All it provided me with was anger and fear with a lot of slow parts in between.  The end of the movie did not resolve any of the issues of the beginning of the movie and I just really disliked it.

I think this could of been the movie I have liked the least this year.  I can't think of another I disliked this much, so I think it goes without saying that I do not recommend this movie for rental or to go see this weekend.  I think this movie is a huge pile of trendy crap that will never be in the same room as the book at which it is named.

    Wow, harsh! I was really looking forward to this movie too. Was it really that bad?

    • Thinking back about it now, I still think it was the worst movie I have seen this year, I asked monkeyjenn what she would have given it and she said. “A 1, and that is only because I thought the CG was good, if it wasn’t, a zero”
