I treated my family to dinner and a movie this Black Friday. We saw the Nutcracker and the Four Realms. I loved it, 5 stars. I thought it was a very cute, clever retelling. Tge production design was positively magical. I also love how much of Tchaikovsky's ballet they used for the score. The Nutcracker captain Jayden Knight was gorgeous, and Mackenzie Foy also very pretty and a wonderful actress. I can't wait to see more of her in films.


This movie is underrated I say. My mother was among those unimpressed like the critics. She is a former dancer and wanted to see longer dance sequences, especially a pas de deux. But I didn't necessarily expect that, I recognized and accepted it as a loose adaptation, creating its own world. It didn't have to reference the ballet all, but it still did in many ways like the solo performed for Clara, and made use of all of the music. That was pretty awesome I thought.

The Nutcracker and The Power of Us were the only movies I have been waiting for this year, so far, so good! If you like Narnia then I think you might like this one.

Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald

It was alright. It was mainly filler imo, setting up for the next film. The last half hour was good though, but otherwise it was pretty uneventful.

Practical Magic. It was good to see again. It was cute. The aunts remind me a bit of my free-spirited mom.

    last film I watched was La Jetée (1962), I'd been meaning to watch it for quite a while, the music video for a song I like (Son of Sam by Elliott Smith) was heavily based on it.

    I didn't really know what to expect going in, since it's some bizarre French avant-garde film, but I had fun. a lot of really unsettling and haunting images which I always enjoy in movies and I've seen 12 Monkeys (which was based off La Jetée) before so it felt vaguely familiar

      Fantastic Mr Fox (2009) - 8.5/10

      Clever. Amusing. Good flow. And stop motion, so enough said! Ash was plain brilliant, and George Clooney made for a wonderful Mr Fox. A very good film.

      Harry Potter, and the Chamber of Secrets. It was fine, not my all-time favorite of the series, those are coming up with Azakaban and the Goblet of Fire, but I still enjoy COS as I enjoy all of the movies in the franchise. Kenneth Branagh as Gilderoy Lockhart is really amusing, my favorite part. I just wish they had kept his appearance at St. Mungo's in the Order of the Phoenix movie.

        Les Misérables (2012) - 9/10

        Can you hear the people sing? Singing how the psyduck awesome this is?
        Graceless levity aside, it has magnificent performances on all sides. Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne certainly shine, but Hugh Jackman is wonderful.

        Mary And The Witches Flower (2018 dub) - 6.9/10

        Enjoyable but flawed. Worth a look, I'd say. Perhaps in Japanese? In English, Mary repeating every second word can get a tad grating on the old ear holes.

        The Danish Girl (2015) - 8/10

        Heavy, powerful, yet a tad polite. Eddie Redmayne gave a truly beautiful performance, however. Any fan of his, or anyone remotely involved in the transgender movement or would like some better understanding of it should watch this film.

          The Nightmare Before Christmas.

          A spooktacular treat to watch for the festive season.

          With top notch talent, writing and passion, it's totally possible to pull of a fantastic Halloweeen/Christmas hybrid movie.

          Favourite character is Jack Skellington, though Oogie Boogie comes very close.

            Today I watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse which instantly became my favorite Spider-Man movie.

                Lizzie (2018) - 7/10

                Interesting account of the Borden murders, doesn't stray too far from the accepted version, but the upscaling of the maid's involvement is novel but certainly not an outlandish theory.

                  Ralph Breaks the Internet.

                  Maybe a 6/10 with some pretty good bits and some not so good...

                  The post credits scene was probably the highlight of the movie

                    I rewatched Big Trouble In Little China. It's a classic, one of my favorite movies. I found cool Hd movie torrent at https://bobtor.com/ and downloaded a few great movies for free. So convy, I'm going to download and rewatch all my favorite movies in the near future.

                    Digimon Adventure Tri: Loss, which was...meh. I've been meaning to watch these films for a while now - just waiting for them all to be dubbed - and now that I am I'm honestly quite disappointed...the only thing they've kept from the Adventure series that I loved are the voice actors, and even half of those are gone. The plot is a messy and boring train wreck, the lack of character development is VERY prominent in movie format, and...eh, Megas for those who didn't get Megas in the TV series isn't that big of a deal.

                    The art style is horrible, the music is half-and-half - you get a remix of the original theme song, then Japanese Brave Heart, what the hell - and the cheesy 90s humour that made Adventure and 02 so brilliant are completely gone. And because they couldn't be bothered to make a proper Digimon villain they just recycled Gennai and made him evil. Why did I even want to watch these movies again?

                    I just watched A Simple Favor (2018) starring Blake Lively & Anna Kendrick. It was a pretty great movie - I'd definitely recommend it to other people.

                    Henry Golding so hot tbh.

                      In terms of enjoyment, 9.5/10.

                      A superficial romp into nostalgia, but great fun nonetheless. Any enthusiast of kids brandishing walkie-talkies and getting inveigled in governmental conspiracies should watch this.

                      Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

                      Hmm...well, I will say one thing - this is literally the only good Spiderman film that has ever been made. But I do feel that part of the praise it has been getting comes from that, because it's basically just Miles Morales' origin story with bits of the Spiderverse comic book storyline - which WAS a very good story, admittedly - added so it's not just another obvious origin story.

                      But I feel this was quite cleverly written - people who grew up with the Ultimate Marvel comics are going to appreciate the references, and people that didn't will have no idea this stuff isn't actually over a decade old. The small minority who actually read the comics and remember Spiderverse will probably appreciate that this isn't plagiaristic drivel like the entirety of the MCU...good job, Bendis. I see your name in the credits and I know the majority of this comes from you.

                      It was...fine. I'm glad they added Spider Gwen, but I wish they'd left out Spider Ham. Noir and Peni...eh. I can think of less interesting Spidermen I suppose, but I would have preferred more interesting ones like Spider-UK or the Superior Spiderman. I hate CGI but it was OK, and I don't really have any huge complaints for once. I'll file this one away in the "good Marvel movies" section, alongside the two Deadpool films, the first two rebooted X-Men movies, and Logan. Not looking quite so lonely in there any more. xD

                          Aquaman. It was hilarious. Comedy of the Year.

                          Last movie I watched was The Wave a Norwegian disaster movie on Netflix. It was pretty good, hit most of the usual disaster movie cliche beats which I couldn't help but notice but the acting was quite good and the obvious similarities to the rest of the genre didn't make it unpleasant to watch.

                          I do have to give mad props to the way things were set up during the climax, especially the set design. Some characters made an annoyingly stupid decision but the intensity and pandemonium were well done and that set design.

                            I saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse the other week.

                            It was a phenomenal animated experience. After many generic cartoony movies that fade into obscurity, Sony Pictures Animation created a true animated feature that's most likely going to be remembered fondly for generations

                            Kingpin is a tragic villain pulled off phenomenally, maybe on par with Mr. Freeze, even though I never watched Batman: The Animated Series. One thing's for sure; this incarnation of Kingpin trumps above most sympathetic cartoon villains lately, since they never seem to get karma for their actions.

                              Aquaman. The only decent DCEU film except maybe WW and hopefully Shazam. James Wan did a good job and I hope Superman finally gets a decent film that can reach Reeve Superman's level of character.

                                Bird Box. 9/10.
                                Loved it.

                                Completely different from your ususal start, middle and ending films. I notice a lot of American reviews are slating it because it's doesn't wrap everything up nicely.
                                THAT'S why I liked it so much. Very brave for them to do that these days.
