The Life of Pi, Rise Of The Guardians

Once again, Wadsworth's Inverse Law Of Film Reviews holds good.

The Life of Pi got four and five star reviews, we went to watch it yesterday and it is of course a load of vacuous drivel. It's not even about his life, it's about a few completely irrelevant childhood experiences and one adult experience which might or might not have been hallucinations. Duh. The only good things I can say for it is that there were lots of pretty colours and it wasn't quite as bad as Black Swan.

While we were watching that, three of my kids went to watch The Rise Of The Guardians, and they all gave it a big thumbs up.

So now you know.

My 3 movies of the year were Skyfall, The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. I can thoroughly recommend all (which might of course mean that you think they're rubbish).

JH, no, the heroes are Santa Claus, Jack Frost, Easter Bunny, The Sandman and the Tooth Fairy.

TS, I only saw Avengers, which I thought was quite good fun. I've no intention of seeing the other two anyway.

Did anyone notice in Skyfall how the villain was Julian Assange?

Thanks for the heads-up Mark. I was just about to blow sixpence down the Odeon, shan't bother now.

You ought to do a regular post on the cinema (hint).

Mark Wadsworth said...

RS, nope.

JP, I do a post every time I've been to the pictures, it's just that I don't go to the pictures very often.
