One of them was Hans. He *SPOILER* ends up being the villain in a twist. I think I would rather keep him as a good guy. Maybe when Anna is hurt and needs "true love's kiss" he would kiss her and nothing happens and they both realize they just weren't meant for each other. *Shrugs*. Also kind of disappointed that Kristoff played by the uber talented Jon Groff got one song in the whole movie. ONE SONG. And it was a silly one about reindeers no less. What a waste in my eyes. Those were probably the biggest things that bothered me.
Things I liked. Olaf. Everything Olaf forever and ever. I actually liked Anna. She was quirky and awkward and Kristen voiced her perfectly. However, I still like Rapunzel and Merida better as a awkward princess. I loved all the detail in Elsa's blue dress. Just amazing work. I even loved the snowflakes in her hair. Its the little things sometimes that just make you smile. Also, I loved "Let it Go". Amazing song, and loved the scene that went with it.
Overall, I was happy it. Hope it gets a couple of Oscars.
My Favourite movie of the year! Absolutely amazing and even better the… MoreMy Favourite movie of the year! Absolutely amazing and even better the first. Even though I have read the books, those Hunger Games arena scenes were absolutely INTENSE. Like edge of your seat intense. I honestly felt it was a perfect adaptation of the book. Of course they can't elaborate on EVERYTHING, but they showcased the most important things. It was also funny, and touching (I cried during all the "Rue parts" again). It was just all over a good movie.
I really loved everyone out of the cast. Jennifer,Josh,Liam,Woody, were all great as usual. And Elizabeth was great too. Even better than the first because you really get to see her character grow. I just LOVED all of her scenes, cause its nice to see Effie become a little more human. I have to say that I loved the newbies as well. Especially Johanna, who I think stole the movie at times. She definitely charmed the pants off me.
And the special effects were awesome. Especially in the arena scenes. Also, it has got to be such a fun job for whoever made the costumes (and gets to make-up and hair). I always finding out what they're going to do for the Capitol citizens. I absolutely loved Effie's butterfly dress and Katniss's wedding dress. So, so beautiful.
I just love that these characters have such depth to them. These stories always have so much layers to them. I honestly can't wait for the next installment.

Fred Astaire was charming and they had great chemistry together. I know that Audrey was dubbed in "My Fair Lady" but Im not so sure here. Her singing wasn't great. Not terrible, but in reality she shouldnt have been picked for a musical. However, she's a wonderful dancer and the film is worth a watch just for the dance numbers.
The songs were catchy. Though, I didnt care much for the dancing that went with some of them. They felt a bit contrived and too "broadway-esque". It was a bit been there and done that. The solo dance numbers by Audrey and Fred were MUCH better.
Overall, I enjoyed it. But its not my favourite Audrey film.
It was good but not great. Still enjoyed Baz Luhrman's version more.… MoreIt was good but not great. Still enjoyed Baz Luhrman's version more. First of all this version adds scenes/dialogue that was never in Shakespeare's work. Literally the beginning scene takes place at a tournament. So it totally threw me off. For the the first 10 minutes I was like "This isn't Shakespeare...is supposed to be like in modern dialogue or something". The movie wasn't completely like that. I would say that 90-95% of the movie was straight out of Shakespeare's play. But there was little bits here and there that were added in.
Also I felt like the film didn't really hit its stride until Romeo meets with Juliet and they plan their wedding. Everything before that kinda felt forced and almost a bit too theater-y if that makes any sense. Ed Westwick wasn't that great...but holy crap Damian Lewis WAS AWFUL. Remind me to not watch crap hes in. I did really like Hailee and Douglas though. They were really good as the leads. Paul Giamatti was totally awesome and my favourite.
I did get teary eyed once. It was at the end when they are at Romeo and Juliet's funeral. Benevoli goes up to their bodies, and put's their hands in each others. I thought it was a beautiful touch and pulled at my heart strings.
Overall it was enjoyable but not a perfect film.

He is a character with so many layers. I loved seeing him angry, I liked seeing him joke with Thor, I liked him being the mischievous trickster he is. He's got a lot going on this movie.
Also Kat Dennings as Darcy is good. She provided a lot of laughs for the audience.
The movie has a cool little cameo. (NOT STAN LEE). If you dont want to be spoiled then stop reading now. The cameo was Chris Evans as Captain America.
I also really liked the plot. I liked the whole "warping scene" where Malekith and Thor are fighting each other while going through all these warp holes. It wasn't a perfect movie though. Sometimes I felt the humor in scenes were a bit much. Like we get it, dont keep throwing the same joke at us.
