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.

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. 

Badlands

This movie is about a couple named Holly and Kit; it was similar to Bonnie & Clyde. Kit was 10 years older than holly but for some strange reason he was inlove with her. Holly lived with her father and they had a some what close relationship and her mother passed away from cancer. Kit and holly was sneaking around to meet with each other. holly father finally found about her and kit and made her go to extra music classes untli he got off of work to get him. Kit was a garbage truck driver and father didnt like it. kit killed her father since he wouldnt let them be together so they burned the house down and ran off into the woods. They was on the run and everytime they almost got caught kit would kill the witnesses. holly seemed to get tired of all the mess and running and tired of kit. Kit finally got chased by the cops and he gave up and just let them take him. Kit was sentenced to the death pentality while holly was put on probation and married her lawyer.

BadLands

Holly , a 15 year old girl lives her life with her dad in a country area. Her mom had passed away from cancer years before. Holly was living a normal teenage life; good grades , and even playing an instrument . When she met Kit everything went down hill. He was a psychopath on the low . Kit had killed everyone i his path , even Holly's Dad !!! After her dad was dead they had went on these travels together trying to getaway . Times got rushed and the road got bumpy . Kit got tired of running it seemed like and eventually started to give up . At the end Kit died and took all of the charges while Holly only got probation and found her a new man !

Bonnie and Clyde - Ryan

Bonnie and Clyde

Directed by Arthur Penn in 1967
Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) and Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway)

In my opinion Bonnie and Clyde was is a great movie for its time with all the violence it display in the film. I also think the reason why Bonnie and Clyde was were robbing all those banks is because it was the time of the Great Depression and the country was running low on money . 

The part best of the movie that I like was when Ivan Moss, C.W's father, was mad at him for getting a tattoo on his chest and not worried about him robbing a bank (good observation).
