A couple of weeks ago my mum and I were flicking through the pay-per-view movie channels, just as I thought all was lost, we happened upon “World War Z”. I was excited for two reasons, one being my best friend had told me it was the best movie ever and also because the book was pretty brilliant. However, the next two hours were filled with pain, regret and the screaming of the words, “WHAT IS THE POINT OF THE FAMILY???” Even though it featured two extremely talented actors, (Brad Pitt and Peter Capaldi), it was still enough to make me want to rip my eyes out and watch my dog eat them. But hey, at least it’s not the last airbender movie.
Today my Mother, Grandma and I went to watch “The Book Thief”. I have to say it was a job extremely well executed. Personally I found that the beauty was in the way it portrayed the German people, not these horrible things that’s only intention was to destroy (though that was not the same for the Nazi forces), it actually portrayed the public as people with families, and children who wanted more than to just die for the fuhrer on the fields of battle. Mix that with incredible acting by Geoffery Rush and Sophie Nelisse, (as well as every single other character), and what you have my friend is a well written, scripted and acted movie which can appeal to someone who hates the typical WWII movie.
