Title: Did anyone see Elijah in The War?
Post by: girlie on January 12, 2003, 08:53:37 pm

The other night, starring him (Elijah) and Kevin Coster.

I think he was about 12 and he was so cute!! And such a good actor, i got gripped to the film as it was so good so i ended up watching it till nearly 2 in the mornin!

Post by: Gecko on May 15, 2003, 02:42:52 am

I've just seen it yesterday and it's a good movie also if it's not the type of movie I like usually to see coz I'm more into action or humour movie but I've to say Elijah is really talented in that movie! He really impressed me so much that at the end of the movie I couldn't stop cry! One of the best interpretation I ever seen in all my life of Elijah! And of course he's so cute too in this movie...

Title: Re:The War: Elijah as Stu.
Post by: Gecko on May 30, 2003, 02:30:17 pm

Anyway I just watched again the movie in the original language this time and i've really to say Elijah is so talented in that movie also for the brilliant country accent he does not easy to understand for me that i'm Italian... I've to say I'm gonna see all his movies in Original language coz he's the most talented guy in the planet! And coz I love his voice when he's acting!
And last but not least I think that for a boy like him with divorced parents like me it wasn't easy to act a part of a child who has this special feeling with his father coz I read that Elijah didn't heard from his father for years like me and it's quite sad...
Anyway I wish to elijah to become more and more talented every day coz he deserves it! He's a fantastic guy! I love him so much!

awwwwwww i just love that movie! it has a really good moral to it, and I love how Stu is the nice yet feirce rebel, ya kno? and its really sad... he always gets beat up and i just wanna kill the stupid blond headed punks, but in the end they solve their differences. I stayed up untill 4 in the morning watching that movie, i cried myself to sleep :'( but oh how i just think the accent is the funniest and cutest thing ever! here is a little saying i made up of Elijah after i saw that movie.

ELIJAH WOOD, SO TALENTED...

I just happened to be sleeping in my sisters room that night, and i asked her if i could watch it for a little whiel, and she said not for long, [she doesn't like him] but we were both hooked completely until the end! It was a good film in general, along side the fact that Lij was in it! I recommend it to the film fans! ;)

Post by: Skara Brae on January 10, 2004, 11:33:53 pm

First of all, this is one hell of a good movie and Elijah Wood gives an Academy Award worthy performance. This boy can hold his own up against anyone in Hollywood, age means nothing, talent is everything and he has it nailed. I've heard about how good he was in The War, how incredible he was and boy, did he deliver. I do not as a rule, cry at movies but Elijah did it to me this time, he is a pro at showing powerful emotion convincingly. Nothing hollow of fake about what I saw tonight, Elijah deserves every bit of praise that he gets. He acts with his soul and really puts himself into his characters lives, he was Stu, he is one of the best actors out there, guaranteed.

I agree with you, I like watching his movies were he is not so quiet, I thought Huckleberry Finn was great too, especially at the beginning talking to his dad and says "maybe I is or maybe I aint" The way he said it is soo cute. Saw him on SNL last night, he is so talented you can tell.

Post by: Addictive Entropy on February 02, 2004, 02:57:07 am

Ai! I went over to my friends birthday party thing and her little brother was watching this movie and the instant Elijah came on screen I was like 'What movie is this? Oh... I should know what movie this is' And only until after it was all over and I got home and looked up on the internet (of his movies, because it wasn't here (http://www.tv-now.com/stars/elijah.html") where his tv appearences are supposed to be) and I was very glad that my friend had her birthday! Heheh... even though I missed the first half hour (or maybe more... I don't know when it started) I was sooo happy.

And he was such a cute li'l kid in that movie. (That's the "correct" wording, right? Don't wanna sound like a pedophile at 15... x.x) Heh...

I don't think you can be a pedophile at 15.

Maybe if you tried really hard.

I dunno.

I've never seen it. I'll keep an eye out. Ouch.

Title: Re:The War -- On Chan 13, Jan 31
Post by: curious bout efans on February 02, 2004, 04:12:42 am

Wait...was he younger than ten in this movie? Is that it? If not...I wouldn't worry about being a pedophile.

Heh, you say 'gah'. That's excellent.

So this is an old movie - that's probably why I don't remember it.

Jes, I`ve seen it.
He`s just a kid and plays so extriemly good.

The movie is agressiv.All the kids are agressiv. Is this normal in USA?
I dont know this so much in Germany.

I like to see Eli playing but I can not see the agressiv kids once more. So I will not see it again. They are soo stupid!

i loved the war. it reminds me of all the hot summers i spent in alabama visiting my grandmother. we did things like that all the time, so it's a bit of nostalgia for me.

Hi Birgie,
I wouldn't call the film agressive. I have seen far more agressive once.
The War is one of my favorite films. The story is touching.
The kids act agressive ok, but remember they never had much love from their dad. There is this scene when Kevin buys the little ones some sweet and you can just feel they are uncomfortable with this situation.
Also, I do believe we do have agression like that in Germany.

Oh,I saw that movie! At first I was just flipping through channels looking for something good to watch.I stopped when I saw 'Lij.Only,I didn't realize it was him.So I kept on watching and like 5 minutes later i said "Oh! That's Elijah Wood! OMG!" I got all into the movie and everything.It was a good film though.I cried,and laughed,and said "Aaaww" practically every five minutes.Lol.

i loved the war. it reminds me of all the hot summers i spent in alabama visiting my grandmother. we did things like that all the time, so it's a bit of nostalgia for me.

--> I love the War too. One of my favourite movies. I think it's great that you got to do all of these things :D, you know what my fav bit is? Apart from any scene involving Elijah ;D it's the one where the three girls sing that song about love being an itching in their hearts which they can't scratch. that was soo good! ;D

elijah had me speechless when he lashed out about his dad dying. he was so incredible there. good work lij! :)

[color=Blue]--> yes me too. the tears come everytime :'( and also when he saves the little boy :'( Incredible acting! I always forget for a second that it's not actually real.

It's funny that this thread is alive again because just this morning I was going to ask a question about the movie.

You know in the classroom when the teacher puts down Elvadine (not sure about the spelling), they are discussing a book called "Why my life is like a bowl of cherries.." What does that phrase mean exactly? Thanks. :)[/color]

"love is like an itching in my heart" by the supremes...or is it diana ross?
::) ah, same difference.

yeah we did things like that while in alabama. we built a fort as well. not as good as they did in the movie, but we were proud of it.

i think life is like a bowl of cherries means even though life looks sweet, it can be full of pits! ;D

I watched that movie some years ago and it is one of my favorite Elijahīs works. He is so talented... and so young, it is very impressing.

I, too, loved this movie. I have all of Elijah's movies, even back to the one with his first bit part ("Back to the Future II" as a kid at a video machine.) I think he was an exceptional child actor. "Radio Flyer" and "The Good Son" are my favorites (where he's a child) and "The Bumblebee Flies Away" is my favorite as a teenager.

I saw The War on TV a while back. I'd like to buy the DVD.

Elijah's performance made me cry. I don't cry often at movies. Of course, I have a son about the age that Elijah was when he filmed this, and I couldn't imagine him losing his Daddy. Elijah's performance in this was amazing.

I cried whilst watching the War, too. I saw it so long ago that I can't remember most of it now. I do recall liking it a lot, and Elijah was such a good actor, not just for his age, but in general. :)

[/quote]I agree, Kathrin, the best is yet to come. Just wish someone would come up with a dynamite script, top flight director and a film that would give him a chance at an Oscar. I'd LOVE to see him do a film with Ron Howard as director. Bet they could really relate to one another.

I just saw The War for the first time today. It was on TV and I just happened to catch it. I think I missed the first half hour of it, but I saw the rest. I just have to say I was very impressed with Elijah in this movie. The character he played had so many dimensions that Elijah was able to portray even at such a young age. I was very impressed with how well Elijah was able to play into the lifestyle this movie required. And what I mean is that this movie definately had a date to it. Its setting was right after the end of WWII and no child born after that time could ever imagine the torment people went through during the war. Elijah was able to play the role of a war child and make it feel so real. That really impressed me! His emotions, tenderness, bravery, and way of staying true to his word during this entire movie were all so typical of Elijah and I think thats what helped make this a great movie. The casting for this film was perfect! And I really want to see it again, the whole way through this time.

Yep. Terrific movie. One of Elijah's best in my opinion. Glad you got to see it.

i saw it, oh my goodness he did great. At the end i couldn't stop crying. It was so sad, excpecially since I lost my father(not the same way, he is alive, he ran off for another younger woman, which i am happy to say he is now living alone :P or so i hear) and i have not seen my father in 6 years. The feelings, the tears he were emoting were so heartfelt. He is one amazing actor.

In my opinion it's one of the best roles of Elijah, or even the best. He was amazing there, he was a kid but he was able to play perfectly all these emotions. The scene when he gets to know taht his dad died is just.. incredible. I'm always crying there...
Generally, I love all the movie, not only because Eli plays there

Hey you guys!! Guess what? A couple days ago I was in Wal-Mart when among a box with a pile full of B and C movie DVDs on sale, the first DVD that met my eye was The War!! It only cost five bucks!! I have this movie on DVD now, I'm so happy. ;D

The special features are a total bust, but that doesn't really matter. For the first time now I've actually collected an Elijah movie that isn't LOTR. :D

The movie starts playing immediately instead of going to menu, but if you press disc menu on the remote it takes you to some kind of menu with ugly strange art. All they have are typed biograhies and a dumb picture for each actor and the director. *shrugs*
