    I hope ” Divergent” does well, they’re working their asses off to sell this film!

  • Living in a box

    I actually look forward for this film, and it would interesting if this film fail. Vampire Academy failed miserably at box office.

  • Phoebe

    I don’t know what it is but Shailene Woodley is already beginning to irritate me. Just. Like. Jennifer Lawrence.

    Overexposed with all her interviews and her next 5,000 films coming out soon.

  • Miguel Balandran

    I am hoping Divergent will be good. I have read the book and hope the movie will be just as good. If it fails, I would be surprised.

    Thanks for your comments Debbie. I think the cause of your disttsisfacaion with the movie maybe is perhaps your expectations? And not the film itself?I did a quick search on Google and was happy to find I wasn’t the only one who thought that this was Clooneys best performance. Here’s how Movie Score’ rates Clooney’s performances based on critics and audience voting:1. The Descendants (2011) 87%2. 86%3. Up in the Air (2009) 84%4. 83%5. Michael Clayton (2007) 82%6. Out of Sight (1998) 82%7. O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) 81%8. Ocean’s Eleven (2001) 79%9. 78%10. The Thin Red Line (1998) 77%I found your comment that the movie failed on a human or emotional level quite staggering. I remember vividly the emotional impact of the film and was so emotionally devoured by the movie I had to wait until the next day to do the review. I remember one scene in particular, involving Robert Forster, where Payne brilliantly builds up tension and anger in the audience, by making out the father in law out to be the baddie. This anger then melts away like ice under a blow torch when Clooney leads his daughters out of the hospital room and, through a crack in the door and under the watchful gaze of Clooney and his daughters; the audience gets to see the obstreperous old man deliver a tender kiss on the forehead of his dying daughter. A touch of pure class from Payne and painfully realistic. The big event’ you seemed to be waiting for happened right at the start of the film with the speedboat accident, the rest of the movie deals with the aftermath. I think what makes this a great film is what Payne didn’t do rather than what he did do. Sometimes silence is a language in its own right and this, together with subtlety, reserve and understatement are the keys to this film. Making realism dramatic and watchable is indeed a difficult art, which Payne makes look easy. The film is much more than an academic study of relationships; the main characters are developed sufficiently to match the inch perfect pace. There are a few technical flaws to the movie which you didn’t pick up on: namely the score could have been much better and, overall, so could the cinematography although I thought the stunning landscape shots from the airplane and the subtle metaphor of the peninsular and islands representing the family and its generations was simply superb. Given that the preservation of nature was the main sub-plot of the film, I felt that nature went under-represented; I don’t remember a single close-up of any land- or sea-based wild creature. Maybe you are too connected to the subject matter? I would be interested to hear which other re-establishing connection’ movies you are comparing it to? The only one that springs to mind is American Beauty (1999), which isn’t really the same thing…
