Last night me and my mom had a movie night and caught up on them both.
We started with the LEGO movie.
I liked it!! I wasn't absolutely blown away, but it was definitely entertaining! I loved Princess Uni-Kitty, she was adorable. She makes me think of Ink a lot, what with her endless sparkling rainbow joy, cloudcuckoolander attitude... and deeply repressed emotional issues...
Their take on Batman was pretty funny as well.
"I'm Batman." "I hate this place." "What are you two losers doing?"
It was great!! XDDD
And then came How to Train Your Dragon 2.
There will be spoilers ahead, just so you know...
This was very good as well. A lot more serious than the last film, but still had a lot of funny moments. Loved the animation of course. As soon as it started up, I looked at my mom and was like, "YAY, time for some stomach dropping flight scenes!! 8D" She hates those (she gets motion sickness pretty bad) and sure enough, not five minutes into the film we get some. XD
Anywho, I was pretty stunned by the character deaths.
Surprising I didn't gasp at the BIG one, though I gasped at the death of the White Alpha. My theory is that the goring of the poor White Alpha dragon left me desensitized, so by the time (REMEMBER SPOILERS)...
(pauses to let you leave)
...Stoick dies, I was just, "Oh, okay this is that kind of movie huh? Sure lets add ANOTHER on to the pile... 8(" Didn't upset me as much as it seemed to upset some fans though. But I was never super attached to the characters of HTTYD so it wasn't a personal blow.
Though GOD, that scene right before with brain-controlled Toothless... YEEEESH, SCARY!! Though I got super pissed after seeing some people mad at Hiccup for being mad at Toothless. He was in friggin' grief!! You have a person you love get shot dead in front of you, see how rational YOU act.
So yeah, both really good movies, super happy I finally got to see them. Cannot WAIT for Kung Fu Panda 3. That my DreamWorks property of choice. XD
