Essentially about loss, guilt and regret, Auburn's film also examines Julia's increasingly unhealthy obsession with her surrogate daughter, which gives it an air of uneasy tension that never amounts to much.
The combination of button-pushing uplift, sundry sweeping helicopter shots and a bombastic score that sounds like it came on a free transfer from a Tony Scott movie proves as resistibly synthetic as the CGI-enhanced heroics on the pitch.
The film's jigsaw construction initially lends an air of freshness and unpredictability, but as the film moves forward the lack of any overarching thematic structure or emotional dynamism becomes a problem.
...one of many reasons to love Junebug is how often it offers us spaces to fill in ourselves, the faith it shows in handing us small puzzles -- Eugene's hand-carved bird, for instance -- to chuckle over or think on afterward.
I just got this in the mail today and it was just the basic edition.. nothing fancy. It was NOT the Universal 100th anniversary collectors series disc, and there was NO digital copy. Just the movie, plain and simple. And really that's all I wanted.. I didn't care about the rest of it, but if you do, be warned: you may not be getting the one in the picture.
I brought this DVD for my 2 year old granddaughter, she loves dinosaurs. I couldn't find it in any stores, so I went on-line to purchase it. My granddaughter means the world to me, she is my best little friend. Since buying the movie a couple of weeks ago, everynight before going to bed, she wants to watch dinosaurs.
This movie is very different from the first one. It is bizarre and weird.. but there's a lot of intense scenes. Some very graphic.\nIt's a good movie overall, let's hope American decides not to do a remake of this one!
