In the book, Oompa is meant to be an overweight 7-8 year old. See more »
The beginning of the film is supposed to be set in Northern Ohio, within a few miles of Lake Erie. However, with a few minor exceptions close to Cleveland, the Lake Erie coastline is lightly forested and mostly flat. The wooded parks and hills shown exist much farther inland than a tsunami could reach. Lake Erie is also the shallowest of the Great Lakes. See more »
We had The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, St Elmo's Fire, The Goonies to name but a few. Defining moments in movies, defining teenage angst, growing pains and young love and loves lost. Films that stand up today, not just for nostalgia's sake but because of solid acting, amazing characters and good stories.
I despair for the drivel that our millennial's have to endure today in the name of cinema. If you've grown up on good films through the years then you want to avoid The Fifth Wave. Encourage your young-lings to watch something else.
Chloe maybe a good actress, but she couldn't drag the film from the mire of this cliché driven plot line with shallow characters and an awfully banal story of an alien plot to take over the Earth in as seemingly clueless manner as possible.
