An excellent message shells an excellent movie.

I usually don't like films which feature racism as the primary topic. They usually end up being forced emotion and white guilt, but for the ones that I do like, it's hard to leave out To Kill A Mockingbird.

I got the Digibook to this film a few months ago, and I'm not regretting a thing, it was worth every penny.
Although it is a black and white film, it has that feel-good quality that we barely find anymore in films today. It feels like it's in color. It reaches out to you with its characters, dialogue, excellent storyline and all-round execution.
It features the point of view of a child, which is sometimes very important, as innocence is a leading factor of justice and right and wrong need to be broken down.
Gregory Peck is mesmerizing. The dialogue he delivers gives me goosebumps...

Worthy of it's praise

I shouldn't have to tell you that To Kill A Mocking Bird is considered to be one of the greatest films ever to be made. I shouldn't have to inform you that this film is based off of the book by the same name, which is met with an equal amount of praise. But what I say now is important: This film is certainly worthy of all the praise.

To Kill A Mocking Bird is based off of Harper Lee's book by the same name. It's about a young girl named Scout, and her older brother Jem, and their puny friend, Dill. Scout's father, Atticus (Gregory Peck) takes a case to defend a black man named Tom Robinson, who is charged of raping a white woman.

That's really all there is to it. It's a simple tale, but an affecting one.

One of the best parts of the film, is the title sequence: A skillfully ed...

To Kill a Mockingbird review

Gregory Peck does an astounding job as the morally correct Lawyer Atticus Finch. Definitely a memorable performance and the kids likewise did a remarkable job. One of the few film's in its time with dual premises. A black man convicted of murder and the horrific tales of Arthur "Boo" Radley. The score, supporting cast, brilliant screenplay made the film interesting. Peck shines and the quotes are unforgettable. Atticus Finch - "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it." "In our courts, all men are created equal. I'm no idealist to believe firmly... in the integrity of our courts and of our jury system. That's no ideal to me. That is a living, working reality!" "Shoot all the blue...

A classic that deserves to be seen over and over!!

A neglected classic, that needs and deserves to be seen a lot more than it is. No other film or series, with the possible exception of The Waltons, has got as close to the heart and soul of rural America as this one.Gregory Peck, in his finest role, plays Atticus Finch exactly as the book describes him - a good and decent man trying to to the right thing in a society that just will not allow him to do that. The fact that we see how all aspects of the community interact and view the trial of Tom Robinson hammers home the point of how pervasive and common racism was in those days. The closing scenes in the courtroom still give a chill today.The two child actors do an excellent job of bringing Jem and Scout to life, but the other real star to me is Robert Duvall. Boo Radley is the great unhe...
