    she still WAS an innocent adolescent. what else do you call a 17 year old virgin who's not even a senior in high school yet? a lot of parents struggle with seeing their children grow up. liam's character wasn't unique in this aspect. his backround of being a CIA agent, or whatever he was, i don't think the movie says anything specific other than he was a "preventer", played a large, no, all the role in him initially not wanting her to go overseas. of course a parent wants to see their child have fun.....safely. not even being a father i can totally commiserate with his not wanting her to go.

    Hence him trying to pull strings so she could live out her tween fantasy of being a singer as well as her virginity being a thematic focal point of the film.
    pull strings? he asked for advice dude, that's it. he was brushed off, saved the life of the singer, who then offered liam's character lessons for his daughter. that's not pulling strings that's the singer reciprocating the best she can for what was a heroic act that was done expecting nothing in return. that wasn't him trying to relive her (even) younger years, he was just thinking of his daughter :dunnodude: fathers do that you know

    i'm not arguing that the film was superb or questioning your review based on scenes that actually happened. i highlight actually because your last post is a whole lotta speculation about a characters motives that are based primarily on cliches. your reading into things that really are what they are at face value and nothing more.

    That will be just as a fullfilling movie without those pesky subtitles.


    I meant that the subtitles themselves were hard to read, not that i dont like subtitles. Sometimes they would have them the same color, green titles on green background, and they were small too so it was hard to read.

    Movies are rarely what they are at face value but, again, I was joking about him actually wanting to fuck his daughter. I'll argue my point on their strange relationship later.

    true. but saying he was "enamored with his daughter when she was an innocent adolescent" based off of the fact that he bought her a karoke player (hey, he was an uninvolved dad, they make several points of saying this. he probably knew very little about his daughter, the one thing that came to mind was that she loved to sing, so, bingo, karoke player) is a bit of a stretch.

    also, saying he pulled strings to get his daughter in with that singer is also just wildely inaccurate. it was offered to him, just as the gig to be security at the concert was. he wasn't doing any of it for his daughter, only being thoughtful when he realized he was in the presence of a singer and that's what his daughter wanted. unless of course he only saved the singers life so she owed him one

    The Wind that Shakes the Barley: Interesting film and great insight into the Irish independance war. Cillian Murphy was pretty good, but overall the film felt a little bland given the topic matter. I liked the way they showed the IRA started fracturing into groups over what people thought was independance, and how that brought fellow members to square off.

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Our new DVD. I don't get a lot of the criticism of this film, mainly because people don't get ScFi.

    We Were Soldiers (Once): I like this film, especially the juxtaposition with the situation of the soldiers wives waiting at home. I've been trying to find the book to read, which hopefully has less American patriotism.
