| My retort to all the bad reviews
After reading all the bad review's and not reading the book I went to see this film with not much expectation other than it would most likely be a visual feast and I was not let down. Wow it was glorious, stunning, beautiful etc. I didn't notice everything else that most of the people's bad reviews thought about it yes maybe a little sappy but it is a story about a young girl who gets killed before her time, before she has even had her first kiss, a fathers love for that child.. yada yada THAT IS VERY SAD. I thought that the CGI sequences flowed nicely from reality and back I wonder if some people have a chip on there shoulder about Peter Jackson because of his success from little old New Zealand when they just can't get a break even after years of film school yall must be very annoyed. I guess that had I gone in expecting one of the greatest films of all time I would have been disappointed but I was not at all unhappy with the film it is an enjoyable piece of art if anything maybe to many big name actors that I could not get past there previous roles (Stanley Tucci) possibly studio execs putting there clammy hands in the mix to maximize the box office, shame on you studio shame on you.
