Movie – Beasts of the Southern Wild: B

Artistic certainly, but not quite engaging, or even beautiful. I liked the auroch imagery, and there were several great scenes but the roads between them were bland, like a stretch of country interstate. Or perhaps the fact I think a stretch of country interstate is a negative thing points to why I didn’t enjoy a film encouraging enjoyment for the small things in life.

  1. I’m not convinced you feel very strongly about that “B”! My review would read the same, except it would end with a grade lower. I went in expecting the movie to be more fantastical, and instead, got sleepy during this poetic movie.

    I hate poetry.

    • Perhaps I wanted to like it more than I did. It wouldn’t be the first time. (I’m still ashamed of my Prometheus review. Excitement got the best of me.) It wasn’t without merit though, so I’ll stick with my B for now. Maybe my poetry tolerance is higher.
