Trevor – Suddenly I’m interested in watching this show.. despite Meryl Streep. Ugh, I don’t know what it is, but I’m not her biggest fan. But what I am a big fan of is theater. The first trailer we reviewed didn’t show anything about this being a musical endeavor and I think that’s sad. But I love musical theater and am very interested to see what they do with this show. We don’t get enough like this, so I’ll likely watch this in the theater to show my support.
Tim – I think this movie is going to be huge. A well-known musical as done by Disney for Christmas? C’mon. Now, I’m typically NOT a musical guy. I’d rather slide naked down a razor blade than watch Moulin Rouge. But this one looks good. The cast is great, and I’ll watch Anna Kendrick in anything. And the original show was done by Stephen Sondheim, the man behind Sweeney Todd. I thought that movie, and the music in it, was great. So I think that this is going to be a perfect holiday movie. And what’s up with Trevor not liking Meryl Streep? Crazy talk.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Trevor – This movie looks epic. I nearly ended my review there. The other trailers have looked good, but this one gave me chills. I can’t wait to see this now. An epic battle between the good sides. And the battle sequences look to be more dynamic than those of Lord of the Rings. I’m stoked. I’ll be there on the front row with popcorn. But not literally the front row, cause that’s crazy.
Tim – I’ve like The Hobbit films so far, but I haven’t loved them as deeply as I did The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I don’t know that this one will reach those levels of adoration either, but it looks to be the best of this new trilogy. This newest trailer really sheds light on the battle to come, and really highlights the “friendly” factions, like the Elves, that are coming after the newly acquired mountain of gold. Trevor was right. This movie will be epic, and deservedly so.
Trevor – Having lived several years in the UK, I’m interested. I don’t think I would have been otherwise, but it looks cute and nostalgic for me, so I’ll watch this. I may or may not own a children’s book about Paddington Bear that I brought back to the USA with me. The animation leaves a little to be desired, but I’ll still watch, probably on Redbox.
Tim – I must have watched this trailer at the perfect “dad moment” because I thought it was totally charming. Granted, it looks a little family-friendly-cheesy, but that’s exactly who it’s for. I know my kids are going to love this film, and there were a few parts in the trailer that made me chuckle aloud. When the man growls like a bear and Paddington tells him that he just said something offensive… it was beary funny. (Beary, get it!)
