I picked up The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Owls of Ga'Hoole from the $5 bin at Wal-Mart. Both are subpar adaptations from books I love, but hey five dollars...

I went with my wife and her sisters went to see Frozen last week, just before Christmas.

Such a good movie! Cute songs, great character design. Kristen Bell can sing pretty well (I had never heard her sing before).

I did not see the plot twists coming, and the ending was amazing, and spoiled below.

Also, the snowman Olaf was cute and funny. I thought he would be really annoying (from the trailers), but they used him just enough that he didn't get on your nerves. Also, he had a great song about wanting to do go to the beach and swim in the ocean and do "whatever it is that snow does in summer".

We went to see "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" at 5:00 PM Friday evening. It was good, but not as good as AUJ. You can really tell it's a middle film.

Trailers for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", "The Amazing Spiderman 2", "Teen Wolf", "How to Train Your Dragon 2", "Instellar", "Jupiter Ascending", and probably one or two more that I've forgotten screened before DOS.

I'd love to see "Winter Soldier" and "Interstellar." "Jupiter Ascending" looks like it might be good too, though I have absolutely no clue what the plot is about. I'd have to see the original "Spiderman" and "Dragon" before I decide if I want to see the sequels.

I finally watched the Ewok movies. Ewoks: Caravan of Courage is kinda bad. The kid in it is less likable than Anakin Skywalker. Very kiddy movie.

However, Ewoks: The Battle for Endor is pretty good. The annoying kid dies right at the beginning of the film (huge payoff), there are big Ewok battles, good special effects, and Cyndal, the main character, is likable. I really enjoyed it.

We have a theatre where they play the movies that are no longer in the cineplexes, but not yet on DVD/Blu-Ray. The screens are smaller and the rooms are smaller, and it's significantly cheaper (and they have a Toonie Tuesday deal, where a movie on Tuesdays costs only a toonie).

Anyways, I went there yesterday to see Thor: The Dark World again. I liked it better the second time, mostly because the things that were illusory, I knew to be that way going in, and I felt better about them. For example:

*whispers* What's a toonie?

I'm about to watch Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. It looks absolutely terrible.

We have those cheapie theaters in the states too. They are usually called "second run" theaters. That's usually the only way I see movies, you can get two people, popcorn and a drink for about ten dollars, compared to about 30 dollars it would cost at a first run theater.

I believe a toonie is a Canadian 2 dollar coin.

Wouldn't be surprised if Lionsgate dedicates one or both Mockingjay films in Philip Seymour Hoffman's memory.

My mom texted me about his death moments before boarding a plane to Florida. I was unable to discuss or emote, but I was very saddened. He was a fantastic actor and it is a loss to film as well as his family.
