was okay. I liked seeing Rupert Grint out of Hogwarts. A Lonely Place to Die
was actually not that bad. I was interested to see if Ed Speelers could act better than when he played Eragon. He was a little better. I watched Rat Race
and Toy Story 3
with my friends. I've never really been that attached to Toy Story but I still found it fun to watch. Rat Race was funny enough. Rowan Atkinson provided lots of laughs but some of it was stupid. I must say the cow hot air balloon scene was equally ludicrous and entertaining
. I've long had a soft spot for Chris Pine so I really only watched This Means War
to see his performance. It was very entertaining and there were some really funny moments. Tom Hardy and Chris Pine played well off eachother.
A Shine of Rainbows
was quite sweet but it was a bit airy-fairy. Young Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) was in it and he was very good. Spring 1941
was actually pretty good. Joseph Fiennes played a man fleeing from the Nazis in Poland (if I remember rightly) with his family. The present day parts were weak to say the least but the 1941 parts were quite engaging. The Change-Up
was predictable and not that good to be honest. Soul Surfer
is one of those films that I get halfway through and wonder why I'm actually watching it. It was nothing special.
I watched Serenity
because I've recently watched Firefly, the TV show that Serenity came from. I'll talk about them below in the TV section. 33 Postcards
was interesting. Guy Pearce plays a man who has been sponsoring a Chinese orphan from afar and when they meet things get a bit complicated. That's What I Am
is a coming of age story about individuality and bullying. It was quite good. I indulged in Puss In Boots
. It was pretty hilarious in places and bordering on ridiculous and crazy in others. It is a great addition to the Shrek universe. As much as I admire Freddie Highmore as an actor I can't say I was very impressed with The Art of Getting By
. It was all a bit too forced and the writing wasn't that great.
