Some Movies Worth Watching

Some movies we have watched lately that I recommend;

Beautiful Creatures

Now out on DVD, it was a lot better then I expected. I really didn't have much interest in seeing it, but watched it with Mom and Dave last week and was really surprised! Certainly one to have in the movie collection. I would qualify it as a chick flick, and at times the acting wasn't great, but I still really liked it. Excited to start reading the books, but bummed to find out there are like 4 or 5 books, and they made just one movie and didn't really leave it open for more.... Oh well.

Iron Man 3

How long has this been out in theaters now? Like forever? Well, we finally saw it. From the trailers I thought it was going to be a bit more doom and gloomy, but it was really good. Great twist! I love Thor, but I think Iron Man is my favorite of all the superheros, but probably only because Robert Downey Jr. does such a grand job in the role. Bummed that Stan Lee had such a short cameo! 

The Great Gatsby

I know I have already talked about this one already, but it's good enough to be mentioned more then once. I have seen it twice in theaters and would be very happy to see it for a third time. Now, I am a HUGE Baz Luhrmann fan, so keep that in mind as his directing style is unique, but I love it with all my heart! Seriously, go see it. The soundtrack is so grand! Bravo!

Monsters University

So well done. I had my doubts. And I half wish it was a sequel, rather then a prequel, but they did a great job on it. Not nearly as good as Monsters Inc, but worth seeing. 

Man of Steel

Meh. I really liked the cast of this movie. The effect were over all really good. Although it wasn't directed by Christopher Nolan, he was a producer and you can certainly see his hand in it, moody, dramatic, rough voiced villain. But all in all, it's a good Superman reboot. Although there was one seen that I thought was kind of odd, when Superman goes to talk to a priest and is talking about whether or not he should sacrifice himself, artwork of Christ is positioned directly behind him in the scene.... I dunno, I just kind of thought it was odd. Although, I guess from the original comics, Superman is meant to be a some sort of Christ for Earth to save everyone, seemingly human, but better then any mortal man.... Worth seeing.
