Just watched Saints and Soldiers with my mom. I enjoyed it a lot!
I also recently watched Disney's Hercules, just 'cause I needed to watch something fun. "I Won't Say I'm In Love" is still one of my favorite Disney songs. :)

So I feel like the only person who didn't read the book for Ender's Game and still effectively hated it.

I've seen The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in theaters twice now. I detest the completely unnecessary and stupid love triangle they constructed, but love everything else. Smaug is ald;kgja;sldkjgsd;flkjsd;lk :dance: Can't wait for the next one!

I also rewatched Ink twice, because it's just that awesome, saw Monsters University again, and showed Much Ado About Nothing to my family. Good fun.

Then I watched Salt, which is just another action flick about a secret agent. I was a little disappointed with the way it ended up, because it was much less surprising than I thought it would be, but it was worth a watch.

I also saw Solomon Kane, which was...interesting. It was cool for fantasy action fun, and had a nice dark antihero kind of feel, but I'm still not quite sure what to make of it. Especially when SPOILER: Highlight text to read: Solomon gets crucified towards the end. Not exactly sure what they were trying to say with that symbolism.

Most recently, I rewatched Court Jester, which is just as fun as ever :lol: "The pellet with the poison is in the vessel with the pestle...."

And the flagon with the dragon has the brew that is true.
That's awesome! I'm glad somebody else enjoys this movie. Seems like nobody takes time to watch the gold nuggets of the past anymore.

Watched The Croods with my parents and grandparents, which was an enjoyable family film. Nick Cage plays a good mid-life-crisis caveman. Perhaps it was typecasting?

My sister and I were discussing this, and we had a hard time feeling like he fit the part. Then we realized that, in live-action or animation, he virtually always plays a really smart/educated/researchy character.

I watched the newest Wolverine movie. I can't remember what it was actually called. I just remember that I completely hated it.

Yeah, I wouldn't watch it again. The only reason I watched it in the first place was because it was set in Japan, which I thought was awesome. I had fun seeing places and people and being like "that's totally Japanese looking, awesome!" and listening to the Japanese voices and loving it. But overall, I kind of hated it too.

Aw, I liked The Wolverine. Completely unnecessary, but fun.

Anyway, I finally got around to seeing The Nightmare Before Christmas for the first time, and I really liked it! It's absolutely gorgeous claymation, and the story was fun and unique. I'll probably have my kids watch this if I ever have any.

I also got around to watching The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey Extended Edition. There weren't a whole lot of extra scenes, but it was great to see it again. My favorite extended scene was the one with baby!Bilbo attacking Gandalf :n_n:

I saw Ender's Game in the dollar theater last week, and was very impressed. I was expecting a mediocre adaptation of one of my favorite books, so I was delighted to discover that they did justice to the spirit of the book and kept in all the important points, only cutting out what they had to for time's sake. I was especially glad that they kept in the mind-game parts, because that's possibly my favorite part of the book. I thought for sure they'd deem it "unnecessary," but they recognized how vital it is for character development, and kept it in! I thought all the acting was excellent, especially Asa Butterfield. Definitely going to keep an eye out for him in future movies! My only regrets are that they cut out almost all of Peter's scenes (though it's understandable, since it's not directly relevant to Ender's struggle, and they'd have to jack up the rating if they had his squirrel-molesting stuff), and they portrayed Petra wrong, if memory serves. She seemed a lot more kick-butt in the book. Or at least more practical and less "pretty girl who is only not the love interest because we're like ten years old." But yeah, other than those minor gripes, I thought this was an excellent movie.

I saw that new Lego movie in theaters. Not entirely bad, but not very memorable in my opinion.

The Machinist - An absolutely stunning, beautiful movie. It reminded me a lot of Memento in the way the story was told, almost-but-not-quite backwards, and really hard to tell what's going on and who's telling the truth. It was also extremely painful to watch, because the main character is a severe anorexic and insomniac. I was greatly impressed and a little aghast at what Christian Bale was able, and willing, to do to his body to pull off the part. (He did it under the guidance of a nutritionist, thank God, but still....) I definitely recommend this movie, though potential viewers should be aware that there is some pretty foul language, one or two disturbing moments of gore (I had to look away), and a sex scene with female nudity afterwards. (Yikes, all that makes it seem a lot worse than it actually was.... <_<) None of it was just stuck in there to make the film more "edgy" or whatever; it was all in there for a reason.

Just finished Ender's Game. For the limited amount of time they had, they covered all the important points, still portrayed some of Ender's agony, and cut all the other characters short. Oh well, can't have everything. I thought it was pretty good!

Does anyone besides me find a lot of resemblance between Ender and his crew and Mustang and his crew? (FMA)

Just saw it last night myself. I think it survived the adaptation surprisingly well. All the high points are there, battle school got severely condensed, command school got moved to coincide with the location for the epilogue. I would have liked to see more of the details from the book make it but all in all it was a good movie and exceptionally faithful to the source material.

My parents, who have not read the book, also thought it was good.

Finally got to see Frozen! I thought it was really well done; I prefer Tangled, and kind of wish they'd been able to update the animation a bit so the people and horses don't all look the same as Tangled, but at least the music was a step up in Frozen. I loved that they focused on sisterly love rather than romantic love for once, and got quite a few laughs out of the characters' antics (especially Olaf). I really liked the way they designed Kristoff, especially.

Wow, this thread was lost there for a moment. Found it! lol. Anyway, I watched Iron Man 3 the other night and it. was. EPIC! Man, Pepper was so awesome! I'm very interested in seeing The Avengers 2 now. I also watched The Prestige today on TV with my mom. I really liked it. It reminded me of The Illusionist and my mom said that they came out a few months apart from each other. Now I'm wondering if they were written by the same person/people considering how similar they were to each other.

Recently watched Haunter, with my older brother.
I have really mixed feelings about this movie D: It really wasn't all too bad until SPOILER: Highlight text to read: They attempt to explain why Edgar killed all these girls in the first place, which was just a scene of him killing his parents. But they never tell you why he killed his mother and father (though I assume it had something to do with the bible his father was holding?They liked focusing on it, at least.).
It was an interesting concept, but the pay off was just meh :T

Just finished Wolf Children, like, three seconds ago. I loved the actress they picked for the mom, Coleen something. (Riza for Fullmetal fans). It really brought out the difference between Eastern and Western films with the lack of music, but I really liked the way it ended.

I also watched Summer Wars yesterday, it was kind of humorous but with some good spots. Shows that you can't dis math and that the internet isn't as safe as you think.

Pacific Rim - I was originally going to stay away from this, because it looked like nothing but mindless mecha action, which isn't really my thing. But to my surprise, I really liked it. It's really shiny and pretty to look at, of course, but what really clinched it for me was the strong relationships they showed. I didn't even care about the characters themselves; I just loved the relationships they showed. And they showed quite a surprising variety of relationships, too, not just sticking to romance like so many movies seem to do. (And on that note, I found it very refreshing that the main characters never actually kissed, even though it was obvious from the beginning that they'd get together.) The father-son duo even got me crying at one point.

Oh, and I also rewatched I, Robot because my roommate had never seen it. That movie never gets old :cool:

Rewatched Bolt for the umpteenth time. Such a good movie - full of laughs and cool moments, and always makes me tear up a little about Mittens. But of course, the best part is Rhino ;)

Just got back from The Winter Soldier. Pretty solid movie, though I wonder what's going to happen now that SPOILER: Highlight text to read: SHIELD is gone.

It also snowed at some point during the movie, frozen ice crystals covering everything outside like it was Christmas Eve. Not cool.

I didn't really like IM3. Pepper was the best part of that movie IMO, but most of the movie felt drawn out and boring to me.

We went and saw Divergent in the theater a couple weeks ago. It was pretty decent. My wife says if you read the books, the things that happen in the movie make a lot more sense.
