Voyage of the Dawn Treader

I liked this movie! I haven’t read the book in a while, so forgive me if I say anything dumb, but here’s what I thought was great about the movie:

It was a different kind of movie from the first too. Now, I know the movie makers aren’t to credit for this and it was C.S. Lewis’ plot. But during the battle scenes in the first two movies, I couldn’t quite help thinking “Well, it’s not really Lord of the Rings is it…” In this latest release, that wasn’t a problem cause there were no large battle scenes. The climax of the story was something else. And that’s great! Continue reading

Tomorrow When the War Began

I went to see this today. And I was surprised! It wasn’t the best made film ever, but it was good! It’s been a long time since I read the books, and I only read the first three (there are seven). In fact there was a scene the movie where one of the girls was reading a book and her friend asked her if it’s better than the movie. To which she is given the answer yes, and she says that’s always the way. Whether that was a bit of self-deprecating humour or an apology, I’m not sure, but it was funny regardless! And the movie was pretty good. Continue reading

Alice in Wonderland, 3D

Got to see the movie this evening, courtesy of my family.

Certainly it was better than the reviews I have read. Tim Burton isn’t my favourite directory, I don’t think it’s one of my favourite movies. I’m not a big quirky movie person really. But it was good. The 3Dness was cool, and used well. Not gimmicky, but still fun.

The plot was… well I can’t remember the book. But maybe that’s for the better. Cause I enjoyed the twists and turns. I enjoyed the characters developing throughout the movie. Well Alice in particular I guess, the other characters were more or less the same throughout. Slightly creepy and detached, but also friendly. But yes. I found the movie to be pretty original, well thought out. Quirky and enjoyable. Not my thing, but surprisingly cute even though it was quirky and often dark in atmosphere.

It was good to see some familiar faces, or at least hear some familiar voices. There’s the obvious ones like Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway. But there was also the guy who plays George McFly in the Back to the Future movies, can’t remember his name. I really liked how Alice was portrayed.

Anyway, that’s some disjointed thoughts. Good movie worth seeing at the cinema :) Oh and the dance at the end rocked :)
