Shadowgoddess, we had fake guns in a play we did several years ago and cared more about gun safety than he did! We would never know if Columbine would have been prevented if one of them accidentally got shot.. maybe we would have heard of Dylan as "that poor kid who accidentally shot his friend in the head"

I was disappointed that we didn't see the whole "hey it's a house" They're being all angry and crap and Dylan makes a little house out of toothpicks. SK said he was quite skilled at making miniatures. It's such a contradiction.

Seriously, those kids were totally unaware of how close they came to death several times in that one video. I think Duran was the only one who was like "OH shit man let me get out from in front of you" as Dylan was trying to load the shot gun, this was a few seconds before Dylan aims it at his own stomach. Haha

My heart has been so badly broken and mended again. Stronger than ever because of its dreadful wounds that I thought it could never break again. But at the sight of his face, at the knowledge that he was taking his leave forever, beyond death, it shattered.

Being no stranger to amateur or near-amateur film myself, I understand the constrictions tehse guys are dealing with. I mostly have to commend the whole setup with props and the mess in the room and the airmchair etc.

It also had some nice moments. I found the "Do not think we are trying to copy anyone" segment to be decent enough.

On the other hand, the "Go Romans!" segment - the way they speak doesn't really match the parts of the actual audio that went public. Neither the intonation, nor the whole manner.

The major problem they have is the bane of many non-professional actors who go by a script. In a lot of moments it does feel very strongly like they are reading from a script, struggling more with remembering the lines than with presenting them in a believable, emotional way. The actor playing Dylan in particular is having a hard time.

I'm not saying its easy, but this makes the film often feel like a high-school play where the actors didn't really want to star in.

The actor who played Eric had a few really good moments. But the actor playing Dylan didn’t capture anything about him. And I think he did like a fake Nazi salute which Dylan didn’t do it was Eric during bowling. But I do appreciate the little moment that they found from that one interview of Dylan almost shooting Eric
