Goofs

At around 54 Minutes into the Film, Michael Shannons character Cpt. Beatty speaks to his men with a megaphone. This scene is completely mirrored, as Beattys Leathercoat has his Button Row now on the left side, and the 451 on the Fire-Truck is mirrored, too. See more »

Quotes

Clarisse McClellan: Who do I always make you nervous?
Guy Montag: You don't.
Clarisse McClellan: When I see you burning up Eel's lives, you don't look nervous.
Guy Montag: That's because I'm very good at my job.
Clarisse McClellan: Hmm. Have you ever thought, even for one second, why you do what you do? You should try reading before burning.

Ironic
23 June 2018 | by dan_aamotSee all my reviews

If I could insert the "ironic" meme that uses Palpatine from the Star Wars prequels, I would. Ray Bradbury's classic book was about how media dumbs down the populace and how books were censored to keep people from thinking freely, which is exactly what the makers of this movie did. They dumbed down the themes of the source material and put them through the PC spin machine to create a film that exemplifies exactly what Bradbury warned about. It only got more than one star because of the great visuals and acting from Shannon.
