I saw The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies
Some thoughts from the trailers:
Latest in the ongoing saga of remaking perfectly good movies because we have better special effects and must use them gratuitously, we have a new Mad Max
. I like Tom Hardy, it's a shame this movie looks so stupid. Just because you can make a thing look realistic in your movie doesn't mean you should
.In the Heart of the Sea
: I don't even know what this is, but seriously since when did Moby Dick come from a true story? Maybe it did- I'm just saying I've never heard that before, and this trailer had a very "As we all know..." tone to it.
Then there were two trailers for films already in my theater, the new Night at the Museum
movie and Into the Woods
. Movies take so long to come out now; it's surreal (and sad) when a film comes out with an actor who passed away some time ago as with Night at the Museum
. I doubt I'll see the movie itself. I actually saw the second one recently and found it more entertaining than I expected to. I did learn from the trailer that the guy I was calling Not-Tom-Mison in my head based on the poster is meant to be Sir Lancelot, but he would still be improved by being played by Tom Mison. I doubt I'll see Into the Woods
either; I've never been a fan of that musical. It was a well-made trailer, though.( And my thoughts on the film )
It's interesting how well post-BOTFA fix-it fics hold up now that the film is out. I mean, I haven't read The Hobbit
in years, but the one I wrote is still pretty valid. I may post it sometime soon, but that'll require typing it up. Meh.
