MOVIE REVIEW THREESOME: The Hobbit 2, Frozen, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Hi everyone! I'm still enjoying my Christmas/New Year's break and haven't really gotten my writing/blogging mojo back just yet—but I wanted to post something in case people thought I got eaten by a shark or something.

So what have I been doing recently? Just watching a shitload of movies.

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG
Peter Jackson directing what is easily the best sequence of the whole movie: the barrel escape.
I'm a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings movies (I own 33 discs worth of the trilogy) and these Hobbit movies just ain't living up to the LOTR standard. They're good, but just not great. And with this second Hobbit film, you really notice how little plot there is as they did after all—stretch a 200-300 page book into three movies. Money-grabbing at its finest!

MY RATING: 8/10

FROZEN
The snowman's musical number about how he dreams of living in "summer" is genius. Hilarious stuff!
What's more delightful than a Disney-animated musical? You tell me because I thought this was superb. The musical numbers are just plain brilliant and I have to admit this: I cried from sheer joy—and it's also quite an emotional film. I think it's my favorite animated movie of 2013!

MY RATING: 9/10

THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY
Ben Stiller should just stick with comedies. I also wouldn't mind watching a Zoolander 2.
I had no clue this Ben Stiller-directed movie is a remake of a 1947 movie. I wonder if the original is any better because this Ben Stiller version is slightly on the shitty side. It's a pleasant enough movie and features gorgeous cinematography (especially the Greenland/Iceland scenery) but it doesn't knock you out and become an all-time classic like it should be. It's a bit limp.

If you want to check out another movie that's similar, go check out Sean "Ballpoint" Penn's Into the Wild, which is a million times better.

MY RATING: 7/10

Thanks for reading!

Until next time, something wonderful awaits!
