5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect DVD
Not only do you get one of the great films of all time, you also get the documentary about the film and its impact on the general public. The film is about a man's priciples to defend a black man who is accused of rape during the Great Depression. The film is also about growing up and facing lifes realities. This work is truly beautiful and has held up every bit as...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as great as the book.
This movie was ahead of its time. I really enjoyed the introductory sequence featuring Scout coloring and humming. Gregory Peck was amazing as Atticus Finch, bringing much, but not too much drama to his role. However, I do feel that this movie was overall too dramatic, very unlike the book. It lacked the book's subtle humor, and replaced it with exaggerated dramatic...

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD To kill a Mockingbird,
This review is from: NEW To Kill A Mockingbird (DVD) (DVD)
What a great film, so far ahead of it's time. Really wish the author of the book had written more. The characters are strong, the story still rings true in this day and age.

Who doesn't love this movie? The book is my favourite, and the movie sticks right to the story line, which is rare for most movies based on books!
Excellent quality, looks exactly how it was meant to be. Loved it.

Wonderful movie and wonderful story. Gregory Peck is great as always. I saw the movie years ago and it was even better than I remembered it.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Masterpiece Indeed!,
This review is from: To Kill a Mockingbird [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I've seen this great masterpiece a dozen time ever since I saw it in high school, which I also read the novel itself as well, and it still echoes within my heart as one of the best drama movies of all time.
The racial injustice and discrimination, the dilemma and trials that Atticus Finch and his family keep facing during their lives really resembles to the world today, where we have to dig deeply within our souls in order to find the right answer in such tough time. It's been also inspiring me to be brave, assertive, kind and firm with my own disabilities and environment.
Overall, this great classic deserves 5 out of 5 stars in my book. Well-Done!
