Within approximately 11 years since that horrifying day in New York on 11th September 2001, there has been a whole new born legacy of stories (both fictional and real) that have been adapted onto the big screen. Following 2006 hits United 93 and World Trade Center that were based on true stories, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close became the first Hollywood film that links the real attacks with a f... read more

Well, I don't have much hate as some critics seem to show about this one. I was intrigued and believed this kid's journey. Liked his process and the torturous elements of it.

Gentle and bittersweet, "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" is the second movie adaptation of "Everything is Illuminated" author Johnathan Safron Foer's novel. Although the movie is littered with stars such as Viola Davis, Tom Hanks, and Sandra Bullock, newcomer Thomas Horn steals the show in a flawless performance as Oskar Schell, a troubled eleven-year-old prodigy struggling with his dad (Hanks'... read more

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

“Cloying in the extreme, not just for the ways it exploits a tragedy but for the myriad of ways it treats its protagonist as a bundle of quirks and not as an actual character, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is the crassest of Oscar bait. Shameless in its extraction of tears and manipulation of emotions, Extremely Loud demands you cry and feel something, all the while presenting its story and images in the sterile, busily edited, dimly lit house style of questionable Academy tastes. Thereโ€™s nothing beneath the surface here, and even the surface is insufferable as it wraps up 9/11 in Leave It to Beaver garments.

" I think I saw this the Saturday after it went into wide release, January 21st, 2012. It was a fairly average January day, cold and cloudy with a certain innocent charm about it. I decided to go see this because 1) I was curious about the backlash it got after getting into the Best Picture race, and 2) I had no interest in seeing the fourth Underworld movie. The other members of my group did however, so we split up, and I saw this while they saw that. After seeing it, I get the backlash. I didn'"
