Movies I Have Recently Seen

It’s a rare occasion that I go to the movies, so the fact that I have been twice in the last week is quite rare. Both movies I saw were amazing, although you might say they were, well, slightly different.
The first movie I saw was Get Him To The Greek. To say it was hilarious would be a minor understatement, but with comic geniuses Jonah Hill and Russel Brand in it, it’s what you go in expecting. I really only went to see my future husband Tom Felton’s cameo, and even though he was literally on screen for thirty seconds (if that), he was perfect. Sigh. One of the reasons I liked the movie so much was although it was a stupid comedy with easy laughs, it had some really deep moments in it too. Moments where Russel Brand’s character questioned his party hard lifestyle. Moments where he pondered what was really important in his life, and not in a jokey way. It just added another depth to the film, and that depth is what sets it apart, in my opinion, from other films in it’s genre. I laughed, I cringed and I was certainly glad my parents weren’t with me. Go with friends, or alone, but do not take parentals with you, under any circumstances. It takes the word inappropriate to a whole new level, but I guess, looking at who’s behind it, it’s what you expect 😛 
Then, this afternoon, I went to see Toy Story 3. It was amazing. Beyond amazing. Totally awesome. An epic win. Just…perfect. As someone who has grown up with the films, shamelessly crying bittersweet tears as the film ended meant it was everything I could have asked for as an ending to one of the greatest film trilogies of all time. It perfectly encapsulated growing up and showed what is truly important at the end of the day. The only thing that annoyed me was the cinema was filled with under fives. I get that it’s a G rated cartoon, but…they haven’t grown up with it. They don’t know the stories. They’re too young to get it! To us, it showed everything that we will soon be facing. A perfect metaphor to the crossroads we teenagers are all approaching at which we must finally part with our childhood and face the adult world, even if that means leaving behind some of the things that were once most important to us. Andy is each and every one of us, and to me that’s why so many people have reported leaving the cinema in tears. He’s more than just a character, and I think that’s why the movies, especially this one, have been such hits. You need to see it, trust me. 

What movies have you seen lately?

  1. The last part was perfection. It was enough of a close but there was still room for wondering. Great finish for the franchise! So glad people are talking about it more than Twishite Eclipse.I haven't seen any other movies recently, but I tend to catch up on movies in my holiday time.

  2. I went to see Toy Story 3 today as well. It's probably one of the best movies I've seen in a while. I very much loved the ending. I'm wondering why I was the only one of my group of friends that was close to tears near the end…

  3. Toy Story 3 was ah-mazing!I just had one problem with it!I really wanted the gang to find Bo Peep on the way! I mean, everyone else gets a toy mate!!! What about Woody?lol.xx,~Abby~
