Psyga Burns Some Bridges
Hilarious call-back there.
this is an odd movie to hate on
It may be odd, but given what I've read on it and having watched it several times thanks to an old video-store job, I can understand the hate.
@Robbie: Yeah, I know, though keep in mind that this was hatred from when I was a kid, and while the hate seemed to have died down (as you can tell from my constant giving of mercy points), there are some points where hate can be seen... Though I don't want to say too much, since I have the rest of the parts already written and will be uploaded on their regular schedule (daily).
I liked this movie when I saw it, though I'd been told the trailer was a lying liar beforehand. My at-the-time crush on AnnaSophia Robb may or may not have had something to do with it. I must say, though, I was terrified watching Moonrise Kingdom that it was going to end the same way. Thank goodness it didn't. I also thought that movie was much better.
Yeah, his little bout of "amnesia" is him coping very lousily with her death. Being forced to bottle his emotions hasn't exactly been healthy, and this really didn't help matters. Also I racked my brain trying to figure out how a single punch from him could send another kid flying all the way to the back like he took a punch in a shonen anime.

I tend to think of this film as being a faithful adaptation of a beloved children's novel and a powerful portrayal of love, loss, and imagination through children's eyes.
i think the big issue her as the marketing . they made it out to be a cliche fantasy, when it's really not. it's a pretty cool film with good characters. oh, and there was tv movie version from like the 80's...check that one out.
For a bit of fun I decided to run Leslie through the Sorting Algorithm Of Deadness to see how she'd score, given that she's practically the archetypical Death By Newbery Medal character and all. She's pretty dead (3.21) but I was amused by some of the characters who are more dead. They include Albus Dumbledore, Fred Weasley, Jiraiya, and hilariously, Maria Ross.
