Movie added to watchlist – MUD

17 Jun

Mud

Mud is an adventure about two boys, Ellis and his friend Neckbone, who find a man named Mud hiding out on an island in the Mississippi. Mud describes fantastic scenarios-he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper, who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him.

    I saw Mud and really liked it. But I wished it had less action, and stayed realistic all the way through. The first half was very literary and reminded me of my teen years, but the second half, when they added the action, reminded me of cliche Hollywood.

      I read that it’s a modern day Huckleberry Finn story so i understand the “literary” and “reminded me of my teen years” comment. I love this kind of film.

      But it’s disappointing to hear about the action parts although not surprising to be honest. Most of Hollywood’s productions just try to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

      It’s encouraging that in spite of this you still liked it so i’m still optimistic about it!!
