I’ve been a slacker. Here’s what I’ve watched in the last month.
The Lorax: This is from the same animation studio as Despicable Me, so the actual animation was incredibly beautiful. The way they use color is just fantastic. It might make me a terrible person, but I actually have read or heard the story before so I didn’t really know what to expect from it. It was good, but I always think that the movie adaptions of Dr Seuss books kinda lose a little bit of the magic in the lengthening process. Fell a little flat for me.
Blackfish: OMG. I watched this after work one day and was in tears by the end of it. It was incredibly sad to watch everyone involved, whales and trainers both. I used to go to Sea World all the time as a kid when it was still in Ohio and I remember being so scared of the whales. Turns out my fears weren’t quite unfounded. Poor, poor Tilikum.
Clueless: So I have never seen the whole movie all the way through to decided it was time to do so. It was cute, I like the young Alicia Silverstone. And Paul Rudd of course!
The Lego Movie: Holy toledo this was an amazing movie. For being a “kids” movie about Legos, this movie almost had no business being this funny. I was laughing out loud throughout and the twist at the end was much appreciated. It put the cherry on top of an already terrific film.
Girls Just Want to Have Fun: Young Sarah Jessica Parker. Dancing away. I wish 80s dance moves were still popular today.
Arbitrage: Missed part of the beginning. But it was very annoying. I hated Richard Gere’s character. And that there wasn’t really any resolution at the end. This was a movie that I wanted the main character to get what he deserved and that didn’t happen.
Life Size: Cute. Typical, I really have nothing else to say about it. I didn’t really like Jane Levy’s character. It was like her Suburgatory character taken to the next level, and that’s a level I didn’t really want to see. The little kid was cute though.
