So just to continue with the old movie theme here I had to work my posterior of to the bone, but now I have all those movies I want to show you and we're going to start with this thing from Nicholas Ray .
New kid in town, needs to find friends and stuff, find some criminals, gets into trouble, falls in love , and all that you could find in the Bible. So the plot is not something that would fold your socks and put them in the drawer of excitement, but there are some point that do shock you and makes you wonder why in the name of Abraham Lincoln did the director do that ? Surely you could have made it through without doing that . But hey, that makes it even more fun. Also criminals, or what ever would you call these kids ,look so funny trying to act "cool" and all. I mean, sure, it's 1955, but those gangsters are just a little on the "mama , help me be a bully " side. And there are even more things that are to fake, but that's ok.
There is a thing that I really like while watching this. It's the way they show parent and child relationship. Yes it might be outdated and all that, but there is something to analyze there . Few examples of bad parenting getting better in the end, some people could learn from that if they would pay attention. Actually , hate to spoil the fun in figuring it out yourself , but the main thing here is the family, and you should see that in the oh so sad ending . Yeah, sure, it is some what sad in the end, but not as sad as the scene where Ash gets turned into a stone in pokemon movie, now that's sad.
Just to sum everything up, kids don't call each other "chicken", call crackface of adopted-freak-of-nature .
