Chicago

Chicago was probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I think that musicals are just a bunch of music videos put together. The songs get in the way of the movie and it gets tedious and boring. Musicals are just all in all pointless.

Badlands - Rebecca

I really liked "Badlands" especially Martin Sheen portraying the ever iconic James Dean. I liked this movie because of all the action I mean almost everywhere Kit went he killed at least one person it was great! I wish the ending was a little better I didn't like how subtle it was compared to the rest of the movie. Anyway it was still pretty good.

To see a side-by-side (top-to-bottom is more precise) comparison of a scene from Ray's classic and Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox click here.

Badlands

I thought Badlands was a very good movie, and  it was just like Bonnie and Clyde, two lovers meet each other and ended up living a life as criminals. A part that was confusing in Badlands was when Kit shot Holly's father, and he was just laying on the ground with a bullet wound. Holly was just standing there looking confused not realizing what has really happened. The reason I think Holly didn't do anything was because she was too young minded to understand that her father had just died, also she must have never seen someone get shot before.

Badlands

I think this movie was very similar to Bonnie & Clyde because it was like the same plot girls meet boys and fall into their criminal passages . They just decide that they are going to follow that boy and do what they say .. the only difference to me is being that holly was so young minded she hadn't really had the chance grow into an adult she was always lead by her father so once kit killed her father its like he assumed that role . Although I think she shouldn't have went off with him to begin with ... over all I think the movie was pretty good . I wish it wasn't so close to bonnie & Clyde I would like to pull away from that .

Badlands

Holly lived with her father in a country area. At the age of 15 she meets this guy named kit, who she begins spending a lot of time with. When her father finds out he puts her in more music lessons so he can fill her schedule and she wouldn't have time. Kit wanted to be with her so bad he went to her house and ended up killing her father right in front of her face. Then he sets the house on fire and begins to run from the cops with the young girl. After being on the run for awhile and killing people on the way , he gives up and takes all the blame! She later married the lawyer that took care of her case.
