Hellooo guys! 😀 As I’ve mentioned in my come-back post not long ago, I went to the cinema a lot last month and I thought it would be a good idea to share my opinions on these movies! (Once again I warn you….I might be the black sheep…)
1. Thor: The Dark World
Okay, to be honest I didn’t expect much from this movie but I wasn’t really impressed either. Some parts were interesting but some were “meh”, like for example the final battle. I thought it would be more epic and dangerous and blood-pounding but I was disappointed because it was just like THAT?!?!? And I saw that final twist miles away.
On the bright side, Loki was awesomely hilarious!! Me and my friends were totally in love of his character xD Overall, The Dark World was decent for me, but I guess fans of the first movies would find it more enjoyable than I did.
2. Ender’s Game
I know I broke some kind of unwritten bookish rule because I haven’t read the book but HOLY COW?! This movie was amazing! Right when the movie started I was already grinning like a fool and I was like “wow, this is totally my kind of movie!” xD Despite the confusing physics, I thought the visual effects were really cool and I thoroughly enjoyed Ender’s Game.
My friends thought the ending was horrible and unsatisfying, but I was okay with it. Didn’t love it much but considering the whole story line and how thrilled I was for the rest of the movie, Ender’s Game was still an amazing entertainment for me.
Yeah, I broke the unwritten rule again xD But ehh, truthfully I had no idea how I feel toward Carrie. All I know is that I was constantly disturbed by the mother’s psychotic behavior. Who the heck would secretly scratch themselves with a knife while talking to another?! I think my main issue with this movie is the lack of explanation to the main character’s background that I found Carrie very…weird in the beginning. I mean, WTF she doesn’t know that girls have period? And considering how old she is…yeah x_x The message was well-delivered though, that everyone has a limit to their patience, that you shouldn’t treat other people badly as they might explode and that won’t be pretty.
4. Catching Fire
A couple days prior seeing this movie, I was very eager to watch this movie. Eager is an understatement since I usually don’t want to go anywhere a few days before major exams but I decided to spare my time on Saturday to see this. I mean THAT TRAILER IS SO PERFECT ASDFGHJKL:HGFDFGH
When the movie finally started I was so ecstatic I could barely contain my excitement. But as the story progressed I was like hoaammmm what? Yeah, I dozed off since nothing actually happened. The best things about the first half of the movie are Katniss gorgeous wedding dress and the costumes and Capitol people make-up. I think they were done really well! In addition, the choices for the cast were perfect! Most of them looked similar to how I pictured them while reading the book.
Despite the great characterization, I couldn’t get over how disappointed I was with the arena. I mean, the contestants are victors so no matter how old they are they would still be powerful and skillful. But what did I get? The arena seemed like a child play… There weren’t enough battles between the Tributes. The arena was not as brutal and violent as I had expected. 🙁 I don’t know why…I loved the book so much in fact, Catching Fire is my favorite book of the series. But the movie wasn’t as good as the book. :/ As for the second half, the only thing I loved was Johanna <3 She was bitchy and she wasn’t pretending, wasn’t two-faced (?) The other victors expressed their disagreement subtly but I just LOVE how honest/blunt she was.
Overall I was disappointed with Catching Fire but luckily there were few redeeming qualities. I think I am the only one who wasn’t really satisfied with this ><
I haven’t actually seen the trailer and I didn’t intend to watch this either but then my friend said that Frozen was fantastic. So the next day, when my aunt asked me to accompany her, I didn’t refuse.
The story line might seem ordinary at first but once you’ve seen the whole movie, you can’t help but to appreciate the uniqueness Frozen offers. Unlike the usual Disney princess movies, I think familial relationship becomes the main theme, which reminds me a bit of Brave.
Overall, Frozen is the best movie I saw last month <3 EVERYONE GO SEE THIS ONE!!
