IMO, paradise was too precious. you'll really like that one. :D

child in the night was good too, but it is a made for tv movie and it comes off that way. but you could tell elijah was on his way to greatness.

You just have to get "The War". I love that film.

[color=Blue]"Paradise" is without any doubt a great choice; I havenīt seen the other one...
I do recommend you "The War", "The Good Son" and "The Ice Storm", you wonīt be disappointed...[/color]

'Paradise' is a really sweet film. I think Elijah is about nine years old. He and little Thora Birch have a nice chemistry together. I enjoyed it.

I agree that "The War" is one of his best childhood films and cetainly one of his best performances. He blew me away in this. My favorite Elijah film from this era.

You should definitely get All I Want (USA name) or Try Seventeen in the rest of the world. And The Bumblebee Flies Away is terrific. Actually, you should try to get every film he had made if you can -- except Black & White. It's pretty bad.

Elijah's sure been in some great movies, eh?

My favourites are the War, Chain of Fools, LOTR and Flipper. It's awesome. :)

[color=Blue]Paradise is a wonderful film! :D I never get tired of it. There's some lovely Chemistry between Elijah and Thora Birch. It's so cute! I haven't been able to see CITN yet. :(

There are not that many chances to see some of his older or smaller movies over here, sadly. Bumblebee I got from Ebay and is only available in Region 1, Chain of Fools is not available over here as well as Avalon and until a couple of months ago, even Oliver Twist wasn't available on DVD over here.

I don't even know if something can be done about that! ??? Anyway, Paradise is a great film! ;)[/color]

Hi

Just watched Paradise though it was a really sweet film Elijah and Thora are great together.

Elizabeth ;D

Carina, can your DVD player play region 1 DVDs? If so, you can find all of Elijah's older films here either from eBay, amazon.com, or some of the online dealers that specialize in hard-to-find movies.

I also bought on ebay All I Want, but haven't received it yet (can't wait). my fav Elijah's movie remains Deep Impact, but all thoses you guys said were awesome. I'm trying to get Chain of Fools now and Paradise. I wanted to buy B&W espacially for the kissing scene at the end but i'v heard many people say it wasn't worth it... is it that bad ?

[color=Blue]I havenīt seen "Black and White" so I canīt tell whether it is worthy or not...
"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" is a very interesting movie. It has nothing to do with any film I have seen before. It gives a very particular and original view of love and relationships. Elijahīs character is also quite different, and he is great but I found the role too short...[/color]

Post by: Anna971 on May 26, 2005, 08:27:52 am

yes I liked the movie but as an Elijah fan thought he wasn't present enough hehe !

Yes, it is that bad. The script is bad, the acting is terrible and even Elijah is not convincing.

I've seen a lot of movies but this was without any doubt one of the worst.

If you want to see the famous kissing scene, there are lots of sites where you can download that scene. It's not worth it to buy the movie for that.

I totally agree with Cristiel. It is a pretty awful movie.....and even Elijah being in it can't save it. He really doesn't have that big a part. If you can find just the scene you're interested in, then that's the way to go.
