You know, I often hear about kids being stupid, but aren't kids supposed to be more open to gay people & people of different races?
@DesertPunk ...no it's Norman Reedus from Boondock Saints & Walking Dead. You still might be crazy though.
I was bullied all of the time in elementary school as well as through high school. I was a low middle class black kid who attended a predominately white elementary school. I was called monkey boy, monkey face and porch monkey. They made monkey sounds every time I sat alone at the cafeteria, and they stuffed my desks with bananas.
The main person who was doing this was a white girl whos father was a lawyer. So I knew if I put my hands on her in any way, I would've spent the rest of my life in jail. My teacher knew this was going on,but didn't say anything about it. It was hell, but somehow I survived it.
Gotta say, im really hating this film trend of "Awareness is Enough" No viable solutions or ideas to the problem presented in the film. Im I mean im aware of alot serious problems that affect the world, but in film or a book just saying there is this issue and .."YAY! We are all now aware!" shows the the laziness of the film makers
Am I crazy or does the man under the player look like the biker from The Walking Dead?
You have a really good point, there, Leon: "Chronicle" IS the best anti-bullying film out there! I saw it weeks ago, and I thought "Well, that was pretty good. Not perfect, but pretty good" and kind of forgot about it. Then I listened to your review, and talking about the aspects of the film, and all I could think of was "Oh yeah, just like in "Chronicle"... yeah, like in 'Chronicle'... crap! It's all like 'Chronicle!' Oh my God, that poor kid in 'Chronicle!'" And now I can't stop thinking about 'Chronicle!' Weird how that happens!
As far as bullying goes, well, I was never bullied, and I attribute that to having wonderful teachers and good friends. You have good friends, you can survive anything. However, if teachers are now too scared or lazy to respond to bullying... that's just terrible. My teachers, from Elementary school to High School, were always there for me, and teachers everywhere should always be there for their students.
So from what you guys are saying: this movie wants to address bullying as a whole but doesn't have the balls to address the things that stem bullying or come up with any real solution to the problem.
This sounds like a waste of time and celluliod.
I can really appreciate what you guys do with this movie review. I've been bullied, but not to really a damaging level and I think from the real analysis to give this film, that I wouldn't want to see it because it doesn't have the balls to really give a message. Because let's face it, any answer to this would be incredibly harsh and someone would really lose in life. I don't agree that our culture is obsessed with schadenfreude, but I think it's more of a fear with lawyers and how people have to deal with harsh realities more because so much more information is out there. That's why I bet a lot of my generation doesn't want to be teachers, because there's so many negatives to keep it from feeling noble.
I think the one thing that could solve this, would be discussions with the bullies with how they feel or more about what the parents could do to help out. I think talking things out with kids is a good way to solve problems. However, if a kid is psycho to the point of "I am devious and insane enough to cause so much harm to another human being for no reason" then the kid must be identified. As Co-Host pointed out, that part is really heartbreaking because people don't want to assume bullies are crafty enough to abuse the system and it feels like the victim will lose more than the bully when even the authorities come into play.
So I do really appreciate this review for being honest about the issue and pointing out flaws with the film, because if you are going to make a film as controversial and gets people so mad, that it needs to really have some sort of outlet.
When the bullying turns to outright violence, parents NEED to take that kid out of school. When their kid comes home, day after day, week after week, in tears and in need, parents NEED to take that kid out of school. When the victim has even gone to their supervisors and recieved little to no assistance, the parents NEED to take that kid out of school.
When the parents are dumbasses who tell their kid to just man up and deal with it, that kid NEEDS to be able to leave the system, without being labelled a dropout for the rest of their life. And when the bullies are slamming people's heads against walls, they don't need to be suspended- they need to be ARRESTED.
THAT'S what fucking should be done. It's not rocket science.
