    Pelle the Conqueror

    ★★

    My parents used to love watching all those famous book adaptations. You know the ones, the BBC's adaptation of Wuthering Heights or a PBS Charles Dickens movie. Movie's that are only really engaging to people that have read the book, because they are just 1-to-1 book-to-movie adaptations without any real thought.

    The Place Promised in Our Early Days

    I don't have anything redeeming to say about this. The plot was confusing for the sake of being confusing. The characters seemed to age without the plot really explaining what was happening. The whole thing was driven by exposition and even then I still didn't really understand. Overall, this is a crap movie that has a useless plot, 1 demential characters, and no themes at all.

    Screw you Ryan, Cavin, and Nathan.
