I've not seen KA2, but its very existence does kinda suggest they missed half the point of the first film.
Is now a bad time to mention that there will be a Kick Ass 3? :P
Under The Skin: 9/10This film is terribly difficult to summarize, because I'm not even completely sure what happens in it. It's abstract, beautifully shot and scored, and it will really make you think (unless you don't like it, in which case you might fall asleep).
LOLOLOLOLOLOL. I'd love to see that written in an "official" reviewer's article!Now I'm curious and I'll have to watch it to see if I 'get it'. I like movies like that though. They presume nothing about their audience so they don't usually talk down to you. Just throw you into an experience more or less.
I haven't seen Malificent, but from what youre describing it sounds like they are trying to copy what Wicked did in terms of altering your perception of a classic villain. But, it sounds like they failed.Godzilla 8/10. great movie all around. Gets a bit slow in the middle, but ends really well. Great writing, effects and story telling. Keeps the idea of Godzilla as a "hero", which is good.
Edge of Tomorrow - 9/10
I can't wait to see this. Looks so good.Frozen: 8/10After all the hype and acclaim, I had somehow convinced myself that I wouldn't enjoy this. Haven't seen any Disney animated films in years, and I just assumed they had lost their charm. Turns out I was way off, and was pleasantly surprised that Frozen was not just quite good, it was in fact REALLY good, and I loved it. The songs are well written and performed, and there's a lot of genuinely touching moments. I was also surprised by how funny it was. Olaf was excellent comic relief, and his song about life in summer was incredible. Pretty sure there's an Arrested Development reference in an earlier song too, which kinda blew my mind.Glad I gave it a shot finally. Now to watch Tangled and see if that's anywhere near as good.
@Fredclips. Re: Frozen. Notice I didn't "rate" Frozen. Frozen is a well, structured movie. Technically, it's impeccable, visually, it's beautiful. It's target audience will love it! I just didn't like the songs, and, as noted, above, Idina Menzel's voice is physically painful for me. That's not hyperbole or exaggeration. She hurts my ears, and, when 23 minutes of a 90 minute movie is her singing, there's just no way in hell I will enjoy the movie. I did say I liked Act III--which had no songs. :-) I stand by my comment, that Olaf being sentient, having declared his love for Anna, and being willing to die for her, should have been able to save her via True Love... But Olaf never would have thought of that. ;-)I also still think "Brave" did "feminine empowerment" better, but "Brave" lacked catchy songs and comic relief animals and probably didn't play as well to the under-10s.Oooh, "How to Train your Dragon 2" opens this week. My fiancée's cousin, who has been senior lighting director at DreamWorks since day 1 says it's, "by far our best movie ever." He also warns to bring tissues. Something very very horrible happens to at least one major character, so be warned.
Will be seeing How to Train Your Dragon 2 soon. Looks good. We all enjoyed the first one. (Even if the dragon look exactly like Stitch.I wanted to like Brave. It just didn't kick in for me. I actually would have liked more actions from the main character.Frozen: I completely agree that Olaf looked like he was showing an act of true love when he was melting... but he did ruin it by saying something like "But maybe not today!"BTW: Just had to dance to that stupid song another 4-5 times... no sign of it letting up yet.I feel like this guy!Watching Frozen for the hundredth time...
