Ever since I first heard of this movie, I really wanted to see it but I didn’t want the movie theater experience with a bunch of noisy kids. Instead, I finally received the DVD of it as a birthday gift and was ecstatic. Disney has done it again! Instead of the typical “here’s the bad guy; have to defeat them,” you end up completely floored by what actually happens. And let’s face it, the non-talking Disney animals are adorable and pretty much make the movie. In this one there’s a reindeer named Sven. There’s also a talking snowman who is hilarious and annoying at the same time. Frozen has such a wonderfully passionate cast that you almost forget that it’s animated. This movie will make you go through a rollercoaster of emotions without ever slowing down, and let’s face the fact that we all love that about movies. Watch this movie On Demand or buy it. I don’t care how old you are; you’ll love it.
Who else thought that the commercials for this movie were amazing? I did too and considering that the first movie was pretty good, I assumed that the sequel would be just as good. What do we all know about assuming? “It makes an ass out of you and me.” This movie certainly did after what the commercials implied. The good parts were in the commercial. That’s pretty much it. Loki had a few other sarcastic remarks throughout the movie that made watching the entirety of it more bearable. Everyone’s acting just seemed off by a yard and it was obvious that the focus was on graphics and fight scenes. When the third Thor movie comes out, I probably will not bother to see it. Another Avengers-like movie would be great though.
SPOILER WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T SEEN THIS EPISODE.
Carol and her group finally find a house and it’s really the perfect place for them to stay at. But Lizzie has to go and screw it all up. Who else was really pissed off about that? Yes, Lizzie is just a kid and all but she should be locked up in an insane asylum. Considering that that isn’t possible, she’s a liability. Everyone had to come to terms with that the hard way when Lizzie kills Mika. Tyreese and Carol realize that they can’t trust Lizzie with the baby and they can’t exactly leave the girl out in the woods. So using the calming phrase that works on Lizzie, Carol takes her out into the grove and tells her to “look at the flowers, Lizzie” before shooting her. If this had been done a long time before, Mika would be alive and their new camp wouldn’t have been compromised. Instead, now Tyreese, Carol, and the baby have to move on and decide to go to Terminus. Gradually all of the characters will come together again in Terminus but if the guy running it is worse than the governor, personally I’d take my chances out in the wilderness. But that doesn’t make much of an interesting story to keep an audience on the edge of their seats.
Definitely a steam-punk film with a decent cast and strange twists. As most of us know, Greek myth tells us that King Midas ruled the country of Phrygia and lived a rich life along with his beautiful daughter. However, he was extremely greedy so when an opportunity came, he got in the good favor of Dionysus and Midas was granted a wish for anything that he wanted. Midas chose to have the power to turn anything he touched into gold. At first, Midas believed it was a wonderful thing but it quickly became evident that it was a curse when he accidentally turned his daughter into a golden statue and could not eat food without turning it to gold. So the Midas Box is said to give the possessor the power to turn anything into gold. Naturally, someone wants the box for their own selfish reasons so it creates the conflict for this movie. Be warned, it is definitely a kid movie and they will absolutely love it. As the adult watching it, you may feel the movie is a bit lame and lacking in some areas but overall it will be good. I recommend this movie for a family.
Finished Chapter 20 for Book Two the other day and that’s when I realized the ending of the entire book had changed. So currently a new chapter and what was originally the beginning of Book Three has been added. The goal is to get 50k words at the least since the first book is around 75k. Still quite a way to go but I will have it finished by May.
