The Hobbit movie review

Okay.... I kind of put this one off until yesterday instead of opening day since I was told this one is boring. But I went anyway. IT IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN LOTR!


How can it be boring when it starts with a dragon destroying a city, then the dwarf pack being attacked by trolls, then attacked by orcs, finding the elvish city, falling through a mountain to be attacked by goblins, meeting Golem, etc.... It is not boring!

Go see the movie, I did in 3D and the panoramic shots of middle earth (new Zealand) are beautiful!

It is a 2.5 hour long movie, so go to the bathroom before it starts!

Life of Pi. Movie Review

All I can say is WOW! The nature scenes are so vivid and dramatic. The imagery is beautiful. The explanation/twist at the end had me reeling and I was almost in tears. The great thing is that everyone will enjoy this movie, I am sure that my 6 & 7 year old brothers will love this, they might tear up at the end, but in a happy way!

I was listening to people talk about the movie while exiting the theater and they all seemed to love it. If you get a chance to see this movie... Do it! This is one that I will be buying as soon as it hits DVD, and I will probably go see it in theaters again! It is THAT good! Oh yeah, I saw it in 3D so the imagery was that more impactful.

Hint: when you see the island in the movie, look closely at the shape the island makes!
