Movie trailer


@Gnarly @Gnarly my son had it in school, I have the book and saw the movie. Really good movie, as good as the book!
Just read the book in school, this was amazing! I guess im gonna watch the movie then :)
Yeah, so I had this great scheme where I was going to write this totally bitching entry about how I read To Kill a Mockingbird and watched the film and saw Capote and it was going to be about Truman Capote and Harper Lee and how having perspective is really super great and killing people is not great at all.

That was in, like, October, and most of what I remember is that Gregory Peck is really dignified and Truman Capote is not. So I'm afraid this is all you get.

To Kill a Mockingbird (Robert Mulligan, 1962)
Just say no to racial prejudice, kids. This movie has some of the best names, it can't be denied. Unless you're "uppity," that is. 8/10

Capote (Bennett Miller, 2005)
This got a Best Director nomination? All right. PSH, who has great initials, was very good, Annie Proulx. 7/10
Probably Gegory Peck's best preformance.
To Kill a Mokingbird: My dad introduced me to a lot of the old classics. He's my movie source and I'm so glad I took the time to sit down and watch the movies he suggested. My favorite times with my dad are watching movies that he loves with him. His face just lights up and he seems his happiest. This movie touches me, it frustrates me to see such hate in the world and this movie was so brilliant in exposing that. I haven't read the book but this movie is so utterly fantastic that the book must be as well.

It's a Wonderful Life: This is one of my dad's favorite movies. I love James Stewart and he does such a wonderful job of his role George Bailey, a movie that reminds you that no matter how insignificant you think your life is you are in fact touching and shaping the lives of all those around you. It's a good reminder of something that we often forget that we are only us because of those around us and when you feel you're not needed anymore you should really stop and think about all the lives you'll change if you are no longer there or were never there at all.

Vertigo: Another wonderful Hitchcock film with my beloved James Stewart. I had no idea what was going on in this movie and it took me for a wild ride. The ending really surprised me, but then again I don't like to try and figure it out I'd rather be surprised.

To Kill a Mockingbird
Here's another film rating.
Gregory Peck is brilliant. The direction is also top-notch. This film is captivating and quite powerful. Highly recommended.
Critics are right when they say Atticus Finch is Peck's best role of his career, because in this film Peck portrayed such a tender and devoted father that has inspired people around the world and made him win a deserved Oscar, although O'Toole was great also in Lawrence of Arabia; we must admit the voters had a tough year. I think this aspect is the major achievement of this film; although the defense of this attorney is compasive and professional in every way because Finch lost friends and earned enemies but he was loyal to his principles and defended an innocent man who was victim of racism from the jury and from the judge, Harper Lee makes a critic to the unfair system of that time. The performance of Scout was funny and full of realism, Mulligan's direction is careful and effective and Robert Duvall is also great without pronouncing a word.
