Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Part 1

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
The Grand Theater
Poor- Annoyingly so

Wow, I have never wanted to get up and leave before. It wasn't that the first half of this movie was bad, it was intolerable. It felt like the film makers were trying to be purposely annoying. I mean, we get it the kid has problems but did we have to make him annoying and unlikeable as well? After the first half an hour we got it that this kid was socially awkward. We didn't need to have the point driven home. It was like a nail to the head. The horse was beaten and the horse was dead. And the story didn't make any sense, nor was it believable that you let your very strange child wonder Central Park in NYC and talk to homeless people alone. I'm sorry, I don't buy it.

If I hadn't planned on seeing "The Grey" afterwards I would have left the movie half way through.....
