Oz

On my first day back home for Spring Break, I decided to see a movie with my friend since elementary school, Hayley! She informed me that there was a new Disney movie called Oz The Great and Powerful so we went to see it! The theatre was extremely packed to see the movie so luckily we got there early to get great heckling seats since we both enjoy making snide comments about movies together. Yes, we’re those people….

The movie starred James Franco as Oz. It also starred Mila Kunis as one of the evil witches. It is before Dorothy arrives and tells the backstory as to how Oz got his rule over the Emerald City. The plot and storyline were very creative and the cinematography was spectacular. I really enjoyed the movie. Although I have a vendetta against movies longer than 1 hour and 30 minutes, I still enjoyed this 2 hour movie. Needless to say we got irritated looks for giggling and laughing the whole time but it was a great movie, nonetheless! I highly recommend seeing it.

Super Bowl Prediction

The Super Bowl is this Sunday and commentators and analysts have been giving their two cents on who they believe will win. While their predictions may be based on sports knowledge and facts, my prediction, however, is based on random things and which team’s colors I like best. That being said, here are my five reasons why I predict the Baltimore Ravens will win the Super Bowl this year:

1. Their colors are purple and black, which are much cooler than San Francisco’s red and gold!

2. Baltimore is on the East Coast and clearly, as established by Jay Z, the East Coast is clearly superior to the West Coast.

3. Baltimore is the only team I knew for certain was in the Super Bowl until I looked up who their opponent was a few minutes ago.

4. Red and gold are my high school’s colors as well…. *Shudders*

5.  San Francisco is where the show “That’s So Raven” took place which was like my favorite show and now it doesn’t air anymore so the city reminds me of sadness. :(

Twilight Review

On Saturday I saw the new Twilight movie Breaking Dawn part 1 and I actually enjoyed it! I usually watch the Twilight movies to make fun of the horrible acting and though the acting was still kind of bad I thought the plot and imagery made up for it. All of the scenery was really beautiful and really added to the movie. Considering the fact that I’ve only seen the first movie of the saga, the plot was easy to follow along to for a newbie. I look forward to seeing part 2 next year!

Though I thought this movie was good, I am more excited to see the upcoming movie Snow White & the Huntsman. It comes out next summer and stars Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart. I do think the casting of Stewart and Snow White was weird but maybe she’ll prove me wrong when I see the movie!

Kristen’s acting in the Twilight movies is pretty mediocre so hopefully she’ll show more emotion in this movie. Her acting in Breaking Dawn improved tremendously so who knows! Charlize Theron looks so good as the evil queen in the trailer so I’m sure she won’t disappoint!

Here is a trailer for the upcoming movie.
