Water for whiskey

  • Conclusion: Spot on. It was a watered down version of a potentially heavy weight romantic stunner. It did look great, it was beautifully produced and etc etc but, as with the watering down of the whiskey for the elephant, it just failed to make that oh so important connection that made you really care.

Water for Elephants

  • Summary: The story itself is wildly unrealistic, but Water for Elephants tells it cohesively with fine performances accompanied with rough, heartbreaking scenes of raw emotion.

  • Summary: Thinks its a bit better than the bad review it gets by the movie credits... perhaps wait till it's on DVD?

Really a period drama....

  • Summary: I agree it is kind of old school and much of the charm of the movie was in the costumes and setting representing the bygone era of 1931. As such it was entertaining and I wasn't bored (although at one point in the middle I was almost bored !).

A watchable period piece

  • Summary: I don't get the Robert Pattinson thing so nearly didn't go to this movie, but I'm glad I did. A good adaptation from the book, it wasn't how I pictured it as I read the book and that can be a good thing. I ended up enjoying Pattinson in the role and Reese played her character well too.

  • Summary: Maybe it's because these type of movies are not my thing, but found it boring and predictable. Would not recommend.

I liked it!

  • Summary: I didn't think I could imagine Robert Pattison without fangs and red glowing eyes, so thought that this movie would be terrible. I was happy to proved wrong, and thought he pulled off a great performance in this film. I hadn't read the book, so can't compare it to that.

Which film were you watching?

  • Summary: Geez, Rebecca Barry. "It's not explained why Jacob can suddenly speak a strange language the elephant understands." REALLY? Because remember at the beginning of the film when Jacob is speaking POLISH to his POLISH parents who very soon after die in a car accident?
