Sorry guys, been a while. Life and stuff made it so i don't get to the movies as often, but also there haven't been that many movies i have wanted to review to be honest, though this summer that will change, so much good stuff on the horizon!
Well since today is the release date for it: The Hobbit
This story will always have a special place in my childhood, and now the movie will hold a special place for me too, i got engaged on the day i went to go see it! I have to say that the intro to this movie that gives you all the back ground to set the stage is one of the best parts, nearly 10 minutes long but it sucked you in and gave you a bit of action before sending you to the shire for a bit of down time and comedy. After the shire it is just one encounter after another, it really made me want to go back and re-read the book to see if everything was done that fast or if they were cramming to get stuff in the movie. They did add somethings to be sure, but stayed pretty true to the story. Being the first of three, it is just the tip of the ice berg and look forward to the next two movies.
Next up we have: Oz the Great and Powerful
Not gonna lie, i went into this movie wanting to see it but being kind of meh about it. I was totally blown away by how much fun i had watching this movie. I will also suggest something i have never suggested in this thread: go see it in 3D. The 3D had the normal gags with things being thrown at the screen and such but they also use the 3d effect in times when its just scenery, whether it was fog or something floating in the air in the fore ground it just made a lot of the scenes pop, and give you that whole magical land of Oz feel. The original film was and still is one of my favorites, i used to watch it every year it was on TV until they stopped doing that when i was in high school and i was sad then about it! This story explores a lot of different parts of OZ and a bit about the witches, though somethings are still a mystery. And in yet another surprise all the women they got to play the witches, kinda hot not going to lie. At the end of the movie all i could describe it as was fun, it really was fun to just sit and watch this movie, so kudos to them to pulling off, if not a successful follow up to the wizard of Oz, at least it wasn't a flop or let down.
