An Unexpected Skyfall

Finally saw two great movies this week–and right in a row!

small caveat: I was really proud I found two movie posters on tumblr but then I noticed The Hobbit is way shorter than the Skyfall one. Then I realized: IT’S THE HOBBIT. HOBBITS ARE SHORT. GET IT?

I’m funny.

But seriously, these movies are totally worth it.

Exhibit A: Daniel Craig and Martin Freeman.

Exhibit B: EXCELLENT STORY TELLING

I love a movie where I’m thrilled to watch it the entire time. I felt that way throughout Casino Royale and the entire Lord of the Rings series (you can fight me on this, I’m a huge nerd, and I was not bored when watching). Skyfall was a ton of background story for both James Bond and M as characters and it felt “more like a Bond movie” in the words of Curtis. The scenery and casting and just EVERYTHING were awesome.

The Hobbit–I was afraid I was going to think it was just okay. I couldn’t figure out why that book had to be made into three movies. I mean, if you’ve read it, there’s not much going on. A dragon takes over a mountain and Gandalf gets Bilbo Baggins to join a group of dwarves to get the mountain back. There’s a ring involved. Swords, trolls, whatever. THERE AND BACK AGAIN. How is this three movies?

Let me just say I was not at all disappointed. The dwarves are lovable, the side plots are thrilling and I was reminded of just how much of a giant nerd I am. In junior high I learned everything there was to know about Middle Earth and I still remember most of it. Mithrandír help me.

Anyway, great films. If you were on the fence about seeing them, I highly recommend them! DO A DOUBLE FEATURE! :)
