Wreck-It Ralph (2012)
I thought this was going to be good... but WOW
To say that "Wreck-it-Ralph" is excellent is an understatement.
This movie is fantastic. It perfectly combines comedy with drama and heart. The comedy comes from the many candy and game references that appeared in the dialogue and scenery. The drama comes from the twists in the plot. And the heart comes from the characters of Ralph and Vanellope.
Adults will reminisce in memories of arcade games, and children will be entranced with this film. Both will love it.
In short, this movie is a must-see for all ages. (In the theater, I probably saw more adults than children)
Loved it!! My new favorite movie!!
I cannot say enough about this movie!
Just by the first preview I saw, I knew this would be a good one. But closer to the movie's release date, some critics were disliking it. Let me tell you something- movie critics are very technical and can never actually enjoy a movie!
By now, you all probably know the storyline. I think this movie is beautifully acted and set up just right. In a time when there are so many remakes and sequels out there, The Odd Life of Timothy Green is much needed.
The ONLY downfall to this movie- the length. A movie like this needs to be carefully drawn out. But at the end, it felt a little rushed. *Another note about the ending- bring some tissues if you are a marshmallow like I am.
The other thing is, I thought Joni's big secret would be much bigger than a birthmark. Based on the previews, I was expecting it to be something like Timothy's secret.
Other than those minor details, The Odd Life of Timothy Green was absolutely amazing!! I highly recommend it.
Oh, Disney/Pixar, What went wrong?
Quite honestly, I was very disappointed with this film. Based on the commercials, I was eager to see "Brave". Too bad the actual film is nothing like the advertisements lead it on to be.
I have a couple problems with this film. First of all, the plot reminded me very much of another Disney film. "Brother Bear". Basically, Disney and Pixar put a feminine twist on the film mentioned above. And instead of a brotherly love, a motherly love was shown.
My second issue with "Brave" is, well, the title. The protagonist, Merida, showed no signs of bravery. In fact, she acted quite childish; sulking and crying when she believes there is no hope of her mother ever becoming human again. If you haven't guessed already, Queen Elinor gets turned into a bear. Anyway.
My third issue with the movie is that Merida is considered the protagonist of this film. To me, the protagonist is the person that changes the most throughout the film. But that's just me. Merida doesn't want to do what her mother wants her to do, so what's her logical solution? Go complaining to a witch and turns her mother into a bear. By the end, Queen Elinor changes her view of what Merida should be, yet Merida is still the selfish, immature, dare I say brat that she was at the beginning of the film. Thus, making Queen Elinor the protagonist.
My fourth and final issue with this film is the advanced action. If I was a 4-10 year old viewing "Brave", then I would be absolutely terrified at some of the scenes. Okay, I'll admit it. I am 13 and still got a little spooked at one part. There is much fighting and many killing attempts in "Brave".
Although there are many down sides to "Brave", and I'm not sure what the message of the film was, (Maybe it's 'if you have any problems, take the easy way out? Or maybe its,"If your parents don't do what you want them to do, just give them potion, or in our society... poison, I guess. Or maybe drugs.") but it provided entertainment and some good quotes. I'm not going to tell you to see it or not see it, that's your choice. But these are my opinions. Yours might be different.
