Miko Hughes is the second most nerve grating child ever on screen.


I am watching this now. I will admit to loving this film because it is the most creative of the franchise (if you choose to fit it in). My one and only problem:

Miko Hughes is the second most nerve grating child to ever have sucked air on this planet (only because The Shining's Courtland Mead takes the number one spot). But Miko's attempt's at being possessed or evil in any way makes him come off as an annoying brat. I wish they could have found someone better for the role. His very presence makes me want to hate a movie I love. I kept rooting for the cars on the freeway.

After Jaden Smith in The Earth Stood Still.

I have always found Miko Hughes to be a very talented child, artguylarry. He is quite expressive. The problem is not with the boy but his character. Dylan is highly underdeveloped and rather withdrawn. If Heather's son had more depth, then the little actor would have something to show. Miko Hughes just hasn't been given enough to work with in this movie, which is not his fault.

I remember really hating that one kid in The Babadook
