Movie Reviews

Monday, December 30, 2013

I'm on winter break and sick. So I have a lot of time, but really can't do much. So it's MOVIE time. Here is what I've seen over the last couple of days...

The Hobbit/Smaug: grade: B Good, but the side stories distract from the main story. The middle movie in a trilogy is always a little bit lacking in "completeness".

Catching Fire: grade: B As a teacher, I'm still upset that this is the literature that my students are all reading. Again, it is the middle movie in a trilogy so it never really has a good conclusion, but it has a great set-up for the finale.

American Hustle: grade: D This was a comedy? Is someone punking me? This is the "movie of the year" for many critics? Awards nominations galore???!!!!!! Really? Really??? Someone needs to explain to me why it is so good. Am I supposed to believe that Amy Adams can trick everyone with a phony English accent that never stays the same?

Going to see Frozen, Walter Mitty, and Saving Mr. Banks so stay tuned for more updates.
