The first five minutes of The Lovely Bones!

Jan. 14, 2010by: Mike Sampson

While I have yet to see THE LOVELY BONES, I haven't heard many positive things about it. In fact I've heard it's a big ole mess. I'm not entirely surprised as it seems to match what I had heard about the film dating back to earlier this summer. But while it may not have been the critical success that Paramount was hoping for, there's still a chance to make some money off the endeavor. The film finally opens wide this Friday after a new marketing campaign began pushing the movie towards teenage girls.

To help give the film a little extra oomph headed into this weekend, Paramount has released the first five minutes of the movie online. From this clip things don't actually look that bad. Check it out for yourself to see what you think!

UPDATE - Was just contacted by Paramount who informed me that they, in fact, did NOT officially release the first five minutes of the movie. I was told how it leaked online and it's definitely far from legal and we'll just leave it at that. So unfortunately, no soup for you. It doesn't look like they have any intentions of putting the actual first five minutes of the movie online so I guess you'll just have to make up your own mind on the flick.

Extra Tidbit: I read the book on the way back from Comic-Con this year and couldn't keep my eyes open. Or was that the Asahi still coursing through my brain?

Coming from someone who still believed this would be amazing despite all of the bad reviews...this clip was a complete mess. Again, coming from a huge Jackson fan, everything about this seemed completely amateur. I almost don't want to even believe its real.

I saw it at the Arclight and it has good parts and bad parts. The good parts: Anything with Stanley Tucci was amazing and to me was the strongest part of the film. Also thought Marky Mark was really good too. The bad: Some of the heaven stuff is kind of...boring I guess and felt like it was dragging on. It was trying so hard but not quite making it if that makes any sense. It's also very artistic and it will be a difficult sell to a mass audience. Not the best but not the worst either...that's

Crap.

Yeah, this movie really did suck. I don't know what Jackson was going for, but he failed miserably. The worst line is "My murderer didn't know how much a father could love his daughter" because it has NO RELEVANCE to the outcome of the story.

Book was bleh....

I'm with Sampson, I understand the book was a huge bestseller, but I found it somewhat boring. Not sure how the movie is, but I'm not rushing out to see it.

I saw this last year and it's not very good at all. I could care less if it's Peter Jackson, the movie is flawed like a motherfucker.

Without a doubt, one of the worst movies I've seen this year.
