''I wasn't lost, or frozen, or gone... I was alive; I was alive in my own perfect world.''

--I remember seeing lots of trailers on t.v. for the film, never saw it in the theater, yet I was determined to see it. Peter Jackson does a Phenomenal job directing this wonder. I honestly thought I was going to hate this and yea..proved me wrong.

--I'll admit I teared up during this film, it's obvious as to why and I won't give anything away. CGI wasn't great and rather some was d... read more

A Standout Role for Tucci and an enjoyable film.

I love the actors in this film, and I feel overall it was a really nicely put together film - but all of the parts about the realm of the in-between seemed really imagery-central and didn't really seem like the girl's character was doing very much that was very meaningful or influential there... I don't think the bond she had with the living world was strongly enough established - itsort of seemed... read more

"Katsottu: 3.4.2014 DVD:ltä Susie Salmonin (Saoirse Ronan) naapurissa asuva Mr. Harvey (Stanley Tucci) murhaa Susien ja tyttö siirtyy taivaan ja maan väliseen tilaan, mistä hän pystyy tarkkailemaan perhettään ja tappajaansa. Elokuvaa katsellessa aika kului nopeasti ja näyttely oli hyvää. Mark Wahlberg (Taistelija) ja Rachel Wiez (The Bourne Legacy) näyttelevät surevia vanhempia ja Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise) isoäitiä. Susie"

Movie Reviews (part 12) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It touches upon some hard taboo issues like child murder and how violent deaths touch other people. Saoirse Ronan is excellent as the murdered girl who tell the story and Stanley Tucci steals the show as an unrecognizable serial killer. I like the surreal after-life presentation. The Downs: Saoirse Ronan doesn't get to do that much the last half of the movie and her character arc consist mostly of seeing action. The ending doesn't wrap everything up neatly and give it a satisfactory "

Failed Oscar Bait Movies (50 movies items)

"It did earn a nomination for Stanley Tucci as Best Supporting Actor, but the movie was slammed for its abrupt tones between horrific violence and mawkish sentimentality."

Even more Horror (39 movies items)

"A 14 year old girl is murdered by a local man and her ghost seeks to stay connected with her grieving family This was basically a cliched story of a killer but its taken from the victims point of view and at no time do we get to see or experience anything that unexpected - the killer is some nerdy loner, the victim is an innocent sweet girl, the cops are useless, the father seeks revenge... The fantasy bits are excellent and there is a real sense of joy and otherworldliness, and there are mome"
