Well, only one movie this week. Maybe that’s a good thing. I had wanted to see The Boxtrolls way back when it came out in September but life intervened in a sucky way. It got put off. It didn’t happen. Sad. But I finally got the chance to see it this week and it’s a pretty cute little movie. Though I’m glad I waited to rent it instead of jumping the gun like usual and buying it.

I’ve been catching up with my movies thanks to some well-timed Christmas gift certificates & these were two I really, really wanted to see in the theatres but just didn’t get around to. So available on ITUNES? Sign me up! I really have no patience to wait for rentals either. I really should work on that. Both these movies play into my kick recently of wanting really strong female characters though I’m not sure there the right kind of strong female characters.

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies

thehobbitthebattleofthefive-ps-10I keep wanting to call this Return of the King which it’s not it’s Battle of the Five Armies the final movie in the Hobbit trilogy which I drove two and a half hours to see with my friend earlier this week.For me I thought it was the best of the Hobbit movies even though it had problems that stood out more to me. I had more of an emotional reaction to it if that makes any sense.

On a rating scale 6/10 and the good, the bad and things I’m still trying to figure out…
