Odd Thomas : review

Movie Thoughts and spoilers!

If you feel like watching this movie do not read this since it contains spoilers!
So the movie is a comedy/horror/romance with the main character being Odd Thomas. Yep, Odd is his name. Anyway so this Odd has special powers by seeing things others can't. These things he sees are dead people and creatures that come to a place where they sence death to come. The more of these the larger amount of dead people. So on one day loads of them appear, so there is trouble to come. He has a dream hinting how to solve everything and so he tries to save the day.
Ending SpOiLeRs!!:
So the thing I was going to write about. Odd's girlfriend Stormy was a great and strong character whom I really liked. At one point of the movie, where danger was near, Odd made sure to get Stormy out of troubles way. While she was riding away she told herself to not look back. She said this to make Odd feel stronger while going towards the trouble. At the end of the movie Stormy got shot. Now since Odd could see dead people he didn't realise she died. He was home with her eating ice cream (stormy worked at an icecream shop...). Friends of Odds came to say the funeral is starting and then he realized. Stormy was in the room, dead but looking normal, even though the others couldn't see her they was from Odds face she was there. Odd needed to let go and let Stormy pass into the world of the dead.
The thing is she seemed so strong and confident assuring Odd that everything is fine, eventhough it wasn't. When he was ready to let go and she started walking away, she turned her head to look back for one last time. She kept strong with her sure movements but she looked back. It showed us how much she loved him. I found this very touching. She looked back for goodness sake! She kept strong while showing not only caring while also accepting the fact that that look would be the last thing she would see of him. And also the last impression of her for him. All those good times to end but carry on in the heart.
Strong main character women in books and movies are portraied to have strength and to show that women are not dependent on men. The latter was true and not in this movie, but the ending showed that that it can be a good thing having a partner to go through everything.
