From my favorite movies..
As Good As It Gets
The film creates a perfect balance between action and depth of basic needs, in the midst of an infertile atmosphere.
Actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in this affecting drama.
At first i thought meh, cliché story, bullied boy escapes his reality into fantasie.
But that's partially true, the further into the movie the more i felt his emotions.
When the third story had been told and seeks out his mom, i cracked, i cracked even more when he had to tell the monster the fourth story about "his truth"
It messed with my feelings completely.
I liked the ending very much, it had closure, no guessing, no open ending, everything felt in place.
Well done.The cgi was good, the storyline was good.
You see that this boy struggles to coop with the reality.
Based on a novel of the same name A MONSTER CALLS was criminally under viewed in cinemas, bringing in less than 4 million dollars domestically at the box office - which might be why you haven't heard of it, because it certainly isn't down to its quality. The movie stars Liam Neeson voicing the monster, Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Sigourney Weaver (Aliens), and breakout star Lewis MacDougall. Conor is struggling at home while looking after his mother, struggling at school with bullies, and feeling trapped in his own head - the burdens of his life weighing him down. Until the monster calls. It is important to understand that this isn't a kid's film (I'd suggest ages 11+). The film explores grief and pain through the lens of a child. That child, Conor, whose mother is suffering from a serious illness which is apparent from the very beginning, is played brilliantly by Lewis MacDougall. For people who have dealt with family members with severe illness in the house, this film will be a very tough watch, but beautiful all the same.I hope you enjoy the film as much as I did. While some may consider it to be overly sentimental, I believe it is deeply meaningful and imaginative, with a poignant end.
This was a outstanding movie,I have zero clue why this movie was not nominated at Oscars.First of all,Its tells life of a little kid who was alone and her mother was seriosuly ill,and guy was helpless and tree came to his aid out of nowhere.Why would they call him monster is also another mystery to meIn his nightmare's he saw that her mother tumble down the cliff in a graveyard.Towards to end of the movie he did see that her mother dies in dream.When her mother finally dies tree was behind him , and later on same tree was his mother's friend as she send off her father's to his death.We didnt see that Liam Neelson's acting but his voice made this movie amazing.
This film is simply a beautiful masterpiece. It makes you care for the characters, feel sorry for characters. It has style and looks good. Music on point, acting on point, story on point! I've never cried to a movie, I don't get tears in my eyes. This might have gotten a little tear in the corner of my eye. This movie is just, fantastic. Watch it.
