Wild At Heart
I hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas. I got a little sidetracked and forgot to blog yesterday but here is just a small hello and wishing everyone a safe holiday season.
Caught a few very good films this weekend including Life Of Pi, The Hobbit and Frankenweenie. "Life Of Pi" is an amazingly beautiful movie about a young man's bid for survival and finding himself. "The Hobbit" looks gorgeous like the previous LOTR movies but I'm still wondering why the film will take just as much screen time as the trilogy with a third of the pages as any one previous novel. The films runs a bit slow which I know puts a lot of people off but I really enjoy the grand scope of the movies and have enough hope that Smog might finally be a dragon of note (the one from Dragonslayer is still the best movie dragon up until this point). "Frankenweenie" recently won an award for best animated film of the year and I might agree with that. With an added subplot of a science fair at the school involving other kids get on the reanimator bandwagon, this is a welcome extension to the original film.
