A great entry for Tom Hanks and crew for the Oscars! I’m glad the film took its time with getting to know the characters and their issues just as the real Mr. Rogers would.
I guess the thing that I disliked about this movie the most was its blunt and cynical approach to philosophy. The story suggests that a person must choose between belief systems like it is a matter of good or evil. They paint the concept of being an ‘atheist’ as antagonistic and the profesor even shows a dictatorial supreme ruling over a poor Christian kid. (Refresher: If he cant convince the class that God exists, then he fails the course). Obviously,…
It’s actually a pretty fun idea for a film... but I think it has one very large flaw. There’s too many things and not enough development happening. All the added stuff makes it hard to concentrate on what’s going on. The movie just kinda throws a bunch of ideas and characters at you and it doesn’t seem like it’s all tied together very well. ...Also, I’m pretty sure Robert Rodriguez threw his kids into the film cuz he couldn’t find a babysitter or something
