We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)
We need to talk about a huge disappointment!!!
I had really been looking forward to watching 'We Need to Talk About Kevin' but after watching it I realize that it definitely wasn't worth looking forward to watching. All the glowing reviews in various newspapers and online lead me to believe that it was a movie that gives an important insight into the mind of psychopathic child and his relationship with the world around him. Unfortunately that's not what we get.
Instead we get introduced to Eva/Kevin's mother played by Tilda Swinton whom we see in a multitude of flashbacks and in various stages of despair. At one point shes is traveling the world for a travel magazine and later after Kevin's reign of terror has been played out she is trying to to make ends meet by working a low level job. That's where the problem with this movie lies, we are constantly bombarded with images of Eva trying to cope with having a difficult child and/or a child in jail.
The movie never really bothers to tell us the real story of Kevin and why he ended up the way he did. Its almost as if the story of Kevin plays second fiddle to the seemingly endless scenes of closeups with Tilda Swintons face in various stages of pain,sadness and despair.
By the way i am not trying to be nasty but let's face it Tilda Swinton is not one of the worlds prettiest actresses so it kind of unpleasant to watch all those scenes of closeups of her face.
I have almost come to the conclusion that there must exist two versions of this movie. One consisting of random clips of Tilda's face in agony and another one that is a really good psychological drama about a positively evil child and his relation with his mother. That's the only way I can explain all the glowing reviews.
To be fair some of the actors did a really good job considering what little they had to work with. Unfortunately that is not enough to save this huge disappointment of a movie.

You are going to need a heavy dose of something to minimize the pain from watching this!!
This has got to be the worst family TV-show in the world or the universe It is so bad and awful on so many levels that I dont even know where to start. I mean the actors, the characters, the plots, the bad haircuts and the general message of this show are so horrible that you will wish you had a heavy dose of something to minimize the pain from watching this show.
The oh so good and nice reverend Eric Camden with the nasty combover and his his oh so good and nice wife Annie Jackson-Camden with the nasty hairdo are constantly trying to tell their many children how to be oh so good christian citizens. Thats the ridiculous plot of all of the episodes of this show.
I just cant believe how anyone can like this show. I am afraid that they need brain surgery to correct the illness
