Yesterday night after coming home from a long car trip, Hubs and I settled down to watch a movie that he picked out for us last week. It’s way over due. The movie he picked was The Road . . . DO NOT watch this film. It was the saddest most depressing movie I have ever seen . . . And I’ve been to film school . . . and had to take feminist film . . . which was pretty gross and depressing.
When I say that this was the worst movie I’ve ever seen, I don’t mean it from any sort of artistic perspective. There was nothing wrong with the normal things that go wrong in film. In fact the acting and some of the shots were brilliant. I just don’t understand why anyone wanted to make this film. Why anyone would want to write this book. Usually in films there is at least some moral or up lifting moment . . . not in this one. If there is a son or father in your life for the love of Pete, do not watch this movie. I wish I had been warned.
And Hubs movie picking privileges have been revoked.
