The Runaways Movie

Image from IMDb

This movie started a little slowly, but once it got going I enjoyed it very much. Some of the camera angles and editing interfered a little with the story for me. Great sets, great styling, great casting! However, someone needs to give Alia Shawkat her own movie - she's awesome and needs to stop being relegated to best friend or side-kick. A great biographical movie, but unfortunately I couldn't really get an emotional connection going with the characters. Still, highly enjoyable, great music and great acting! Kristen Stewart even managed to drop the lip-biting that annoys me so much about Bella! 7/10


  1. Since I refuse to watch Twilight, I'll have to take your word on Bella's lip-biting :-). I think both Kristen and Dakota pulled off very mature performances - maybe the latter could actually make a transition from kiddie movies to adult roles without falling off the rails or looking completely contrived like so many before her!

  2. I think Dakota is definitely one to watch. She seems to be doing very well transitioning from child star to adult actress.
