I only watched 1/8 of this movie, because a CERTAIN THEATER which shall remain unnamed, had a film jam, and the film melted. It was alright, because I really wasn’t enjoying the movie anyway. The one word that could sum it up: dramatic. It was sad and depressing (The saddest part being when the film melted all over poor Cosette’s face). The part of the movie I watched was bad, but you should let me know what happens(I still don’t know)!
This movie has not only a great story, but amazing visual effects. I literally felt like I was flying over middle earth. Yes, I will admit that the movie is geeky, and not exactly something a normal girl would enjoy watching. It was a bit too long, but Peter Jackson used every second. The whole book is not shown in this movie, and I look forward to the sequel.
The Rise of the Guardians was much better than I expected. It was a heartwarming movie about figuring out who you are, and in essence, what you are. Although it was a bit of a little kids movie, it was still good. I was extremely glad that this wasn’t a sappy holiday movie. Some people may say I’m a grinch, but after waiting 15 minutes for a cab, in the freezing cold, with the salvation army guy and his bell giving you a headache, you wouldn’t be in the Christmas spirit either. My only problem is that all the magic in this movie was represented by sand. Black sand, Yellow sand, and light blue sand. Way too much sand. Overall, I give it 4 stars.
