So I went to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug today and I quite liked it.
As always, things were tinkered with/added/subtracted etc from the original story but it didn't detract from the experience as a whole.

spoilery chatter )

Now I need a toy Smaug to sit and gloat on my desk. Yes. *skims the toys r us website*

Also saw a preview for a new Godzilla movie. Hopefully it's better than the 1998 version. (Which, honestly, wasn't horrid, I just don't think it should have been a "Godzilla" movie. Random mutated giant monster attacking a city? Fine, I loves me some monster movies. But it's not Godzilla.)

So, I finally got around to watching Fiddler on the Roof, one of many on my list of classic movies that, for whatever reason, I haven't seen yet. I must say I liked it, the music, the struggles of the characters and while not a cheery outcome, it was interesting to see the progression of Tevye through the story.

And so, it begins, yet again. I have yet to grow tired of A Christmas Story. Granted I only see it once a year but, yay.

Well, I just got back from seeing The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and I can honestly say I quite enjoyed it. Although it was nearly 3 hours in length it never felt like that while watching, truly I could have sat there another few hours and been content. I still don't think it's necessary to tell the story in three movies, but was still well done, even with the added on bits.

However, I have two main complaints )

and one geek-squee )

Of course, it ended just as we both figured it would. Still, yay!

So, I'd have to say I enjoyed Skyfall. Nice, creepy villain, some fun homages to previous Bond...institutions, one somewhat surprising death, etc. All in all, a good time. The only thing that I found annoying was the incessant chattering of the woman sitting behind me. She just would not shut up, it was as if she had no filter between brain and mouth. She thought it, she said it, and not quietly either. Blarg.

Just got back from seeing Cloud Atlas. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I must read the book now.
mooncat_chelion: (wandering mind)
So they're planning to make a movie out of Ender's Game? Could be good. Reminds me that I need to read the rest of the books in that series.
mooncat_chelion: (do what now?)
Seriously, Hollywood, what the ever-loving hell?

This is NOT the Lorax. Stop touching Dr. Seuss's work, you're getting it all manky!

This is the Lorax.

Just got back from seeing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I certainly liked it better than part 1. While I already knew of assorted deaths via random spoilers etc, it was still enjoyable and had a few surprises (since I haven't read the book). I will read it eventually, as I'm sure there were lots of moments that were written of more in depth than how they were portrayed on the screen.

I still dislike going to theaters though; little kid next to me kept talking. Bah.

I just watched The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, Rob Zombie's animated film.

I'm not sure my brain will ever recover.

Just got back from seeing Sucker Punch at the IMAX in Atlantic City.

Without giving too much away, as there were a few surprises, I'd have to say I liked it. Visually, it was very shiny, great effects, etc. it's not an intellectual extravaganza by -any- stretch of the imagination, but I'd say the story was pretty decent. Fairly standard 'escape from a bad situation' plot. All in all, it was fun, if a little confusing at times. (the folks sitting a few seats down from us didn't seem to like it, as they left about halfway through) Ah well.

So, according to the car in front of me as I returned from the bank and post office, Judgment Day will be on May 21, 2011.


bah does it have to be a Saturday? It'll ruin my whole weekend. :)

also, Despicable Me was really cute.

and dragons:

So, yesterday I finally got around to watching Alpha and Omega, as it is now available on Comcast On Demand. It was...ok. Predictable story, mediocre animation, some funny bits here and there and the obvious scenes meant for the 3-d version were just that, obvious. I am not a fan of the whole 3-D trend, but hey if others like it, more power to them.

It was basically a "turn off your brain and watch a movie" movie. I might watch it again, but I'll definitely wait until it's free. Next, I think I'll watch Despicable Me. That, at least, looks worth the five dollar On Demand fee.

and a dragon:

Adopt one today!

‘Glee’ Creator in Talks for ‘Rocky Horror’ Remake

No.! Bad Hollywood, bad! *smacks with a rolled up newspaper* Stop remaking things that should be left well enough alone and make some original gorram movies for a change!


If I didn't already have a headache since yesterday, this would surely give me one.

Liam Neeson as Zeus?

and it's in 3-D. Why is every damn movie in 3-D lately!? *rarcomplainvent*

Oh well, Medusa and the Kraken look cool.

New How to Train Your Dragon trailer

Looks interesting. I just wish I could enjoy the 3-D-ness. I never could focus properly on the effects.

Also, today's shirt.woot is hilarious.

Finally got around to watching Up.

Damn thing made me cry.

I liked it.

and in regards to the upcoming disaster flick 2012 I think the following four words will sum it up nicely, though I have yet to see it:

Rocks fall, everyone dies.

Dirty Dancing remake

Oh for pity's sake, Hollywood, get a freakin' original idea already and stop trying to milk past successes into shriveled husks.

Dirty Dancing isn't even a particular favourite of mine, in fact I refuse to listen to the soundtrack (one semester of art class filled with girls obsessed with the movie=that damn soundtrack on near constant repetition. (The teacher let us play our own music a lot)) but still.
