Disappointed...

4 years, 6 months ago at Mar 10 13:50
To be perfectly honest, I couldn't really see what was so good about this film because I thought that there were some scenes in this film that were sort of inappropriate and was really slow and really boring. I didn't really like the story because it was just a story that was obviously emotional but was a story that I didn't even have a clue what was going on. The only thing I actually knew was th... read more

A good movie

Since I have never heard of this flick before, I had really no idea what to expect but since there was a pretty nice cast, I thought I should give it a try (there was also something quite mesmerizing about the title). Eventually, I thought it was surprisingly good and I actually really enjoyed this movie. Indeed, in my opinion, it displays one of the best performances delivered by John Travolta si... read more

A good movie

“Since I have never heard of this flick before, I had really no idea what to expect but since there was a pretty nice cast, I thought I should give it a try (there was also something quite mesmerizing about the title). Eventually, I thought it was surprisingly good and I actually really enjoyed this movie. Indeed, in my opinion, it displays one of the best performances delivered by John Travolta since 'Pulp Fiction’, maybe his best one (alright, he was pretty good in ‘Face/Off’ as well…) . Indeed, he portrayed here a rather eccentric and enigmatic man and he did a great job. Furthermore, I thought that Scarlett Johansson was pretty good as well and they both had some good chemistry here. Furthermore, the movie was quite well directed and first time director Shainee Gabel managed to ” read more

"13.4. 2010 Songs in "A Love Song for Bobby Long" have warm feeling in them and they are also supported by stylistic cinematography. Sadly, most of the time this movie works only on an emotional level because the story is way too calculated and it also cannot be said that the biggest twist is all that surprising. A young woman Pursy travels to her old home after her mother has died. Many people at this small town seem to know her mother very well and all of them seem to have something positive"

“To be perfectly honest, I couldn't really see what was so good about this film because I thought that there were some scenes in this film that were sort of inappropriate and was really slow and really boring. I didn't really like the story because it was just a story that was obviously emotional but was a story that I didn't even have a clue what was going on. The only thing I actually knew was that Hominy lived with Bobby and Lawson and they both were good friends with Hominy's mother. I thought the story was quite boring and was pretty much a dull story to watch. I couldn't really feel anything personal in this film but there were some scenes in this film that I actually lived.
