Extremely Loud, Incredibly Close

I just got home from seeing the new Tom Hanks movie, “Extremely Loud, Incredibly Close”, that came out tonight. It was a good story, but I guess I expected more to actually happen in the movie. I could and would have added several more answers, confessions, etc.

There were parts that were sad, and that is the main emotion it provoked. Sadness. That was obviously the overwhelming emotion people felt on 9/11 and for quite some time after, which is what the story line was related to.

The boy in it, named Thomas Horn, was an amazing little actor! He had to remember so many lines, and showed extreme acting talent. I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of him in the years to come.

Sandra Bullock had a lesser role than she usually has, but was still good as usual.

Brianna was absolutely bored to death with it. Not sure why, but oh well.

I believe it was advertised as Best Movie of the Year. I surely wouldn’t go that far, but it was ok.
