This movie kept me wondering what it was about until it ended.

I just finished watching this movie and I wish I could get those 2 hours back, somehow. I'm a screenwriter and I have to admit that after viewing this "scramble", I'd like to spend some time trying to fix it, but I'm afraid that it would take way too much time. My favor character was by far, Scout! She has so much spunk and stands up for herself as I'd want my daughter to do. Mr. Atticka Finch was indeed a southern gentleman and a great lawyer. Unfortunately, in that time and place, (which I grew up in) there was no way a Black man would have won that case. So that much was sadly real and true. The court action started well, but fell apart because it was way too long. I can believe that they took Tom to a different location for his safety and murdered him. That was a common practice in the south. But what happened to the kids in the woods coming home at night was totally confusing. And who was the white man hiding behind the door after the fact? Who exactly was he supposed to be? This movie was very poorly done and I would not recommend it to anyone, even my worst enemy. I hate it when I have more questions about a movie while the end credits are rolling. Don't waste your time.

Why To Kill a Mockingbird is the best movie of all time:

There have been several instances in my life where I am in dire need of something to soothe my soul, I normally recur to the usual things, like going for a walk or perhaps even writing. Other times I simply watch To Kill a Mockingbird. It will draw a smile in me with the first note, and at the last scene a tear.

The reason why to Kill a Mockingbird cures my inside is mainly because of a single word: Innocence.

In this day and age, these dark times. Like the ones we see in the movie, I believe we all need a drop of innocence on us, but we also need to be strong, we need to be resilient, but above all, we must have justice.

In the movie and book, To Kill a Mockingbird means that it is a sin to kill someones innocence/inner peace, because all they do is ''sing'' for us. In a way I have always thought of this as not just that there is a mockingbird in all of us, but that to shoot the beauty and uniqueness of all people on earth has been the one and only sin that we have all committed. This sin may come across in the manifestation of simple thoughts of judgement against peoples actions, personalities or simply physical attributes. Boo Radley is the personification of this situation in the instance of the Novel/Movie.

I am applying the situations in this movie to our present day counterparts and situation to explain my most important opinion about the movie: It is Timeless.

The historical context of the movie is one of desperation, racism and injustice. But also at times: innocent, playful and hopeful. There is an Atticus Finch, Scout Finch and even Boo Radley in all of us. But the Bob Ewell we all have is also at risk of falling in the desperation and injustice, prejudice and a hate for ourselves and the world that sorrounds us.

Atticus Finch brought to life by the one and only Gregory Peck was named AFI's number 1 hero in movie history. A man who will be timeless. His speech at the court is one of the best movie moments in history. Gregory Peck WAS Atticus Finch.

All the actors in this movie are completely the way you would imagine them while reading the novel.

The compositions by Elmer Bernstein are one of the most beautiful to ever touch the silver screen, and delight our ears. It fills the air with beauty, tension and makes us cry.

To Kill a Mockingbird is the greatest film of all time because it isn't perfect, but the message is completely timeless, the world will always go through dire situations because humans tend to be complicated creatures. But there will always be a Mockingbird in all of us, and this movie reminds us of that.

I always turn to this movie to find my inner Mockingbird, and to remind me that sometimes, injustice will be present, but the innocence of creatures and the good in mankind will prevail.

To kill a good novel

I've just finished reading the novel and watched the movie expecting to go through the story again. Now, I know movies based on novels don't always depict stories accurately, but I finished watching this movie with the feeling that it failed to grasp a whole lot of sentiment.

In the novel, there's a lot of inner conflict. The children, Scout and Jem, just don't understant the injustices of the time and are constantly questioning what is wrong with their father Atticus defending a black man and why everyone else is criticizing Atticus for it. Also, when Tom is convicted, the children struggle with accepting the injustice against a man that is obviously not guilty, but black. The children fail to acknowledge prejudice against people of color.

At school, when the teacher talks about the Jews and Hittler persecuting them, the children, mostly Scout, can't understand why the teacher is so moved with the Jew situation but is so prejudiced against people of color. For the little girl, injustice is injustice, no matter who suffers it.

The novel is rich in criticism towards prejudice against race, social prejudice, and gender roles, while it explores those themes from the percpective of innocent children who grow to fear horror stories in books rather than acts of violence in real life.

Moreover, the children grow as they explore the unknown and everything that is foreign to them, such as poverty. The unknown is also represented by Boo Radley, hence "walk a mile in someone else's shoes," quoted by Atticus, as he models an example of parenthood.

The novel is a masterpiece. The movie, in spite of the excellent acting, is not. Very disappointing, actually.
