The Kite Runner

Last night I watched The Kite Runner. Many of you remember having to read that book as part of the Grade 11 English course. The comments I used to hear back when everyone was reading the book were either “omg I love it” or “wth was the English department thinking?”. Personally I loved the book and I really enjoyed the movie as well. Like all other books that have been made into movies, the movie Kite Runner is missing a lot of little details that the book covers. However overall it is a very decent production. The movie is a rather long one but if you think about the book was pretty think too lol. Some argue that it could be graphic at times but I thought it was excellent. I loved the movie and I’m going to be honest it made me cry or like at least have tears in my eyes in a couple of scenes.

And for those of you who weren’t forced to read the book in school, The Kite Runner is about two best friends growing up together that end up separating for some reasons that I will not ruin for you. My favourite theme in this book/movie is initiation and how the main character, Amir changes throughout the story. He goes from a coward that can’t fight for himself to a confident man that stands up for him self and his beliefs. Another major character is Baba , Amir’s father. None of the actors are famous or known or anything but the actor that plays Baba is amazing. Baba or Agha Sahib’s personality is very unique and inspiring. And last but not least Hassan, Amir’s childhood friend, is a very loyal servant that’s willing to do anything for Amir. Amir in return has a chance to prove his loyalty to Hassan, however he doesn’t, and lives the rest of his life regretting it; which is basically what the story is based on.

Overall , great movie, if you have read the book you might disappointed because the movie obviously doesn’t have all the details and if you haven’t read the book you will be convinced to read it after you watch this movie 🙂

    “The Kite Runner” an awesome book, great attention to details. Every single page made me cry, laugh, warmed up my heart with love, and made me angry… I cried non-stop throughout the book.

    i’m reading kite runner too, made me cry a good couple times, and i almost did on the subway (embarrassing!) but i refused to so i had to close it lol but i thought that the actors in the movie could have been better, and more like the characters. i also felt they should have kept in a few parts in the movie and went more indepth with the characters emotion, but then again, thats the actors.

    The ending was very un-satisfying, if you ask me. Kinda cheesy, and .. well, very cheesy, in fact.

    This will require the series to 17 seasons – quite an achievement.
    During the course of the series, he discovers he’s part African-American and has been proven to have Spanish, Mexican, Scottish and German ancestors. These boxers can be found in a wide variety of colors and you will find yourself planning to possess a laugh if you use them.

    This cartoon face is memorable for his muscled physique,
    and capability to clean dirt. The violence showed in these cartoons was more offensive than regular adult movies.
    Due on the fact of Bart Simpson becoming portrayed as a rebel who induced difficulty and obtained away with
    it fingers no cost, many parent groups and conservatives became upset with the Bart Simpson
    character due to the fact they deemed he would be a poor part
    design to kids.
