Hobbits and Barricade Boys, and heartbroken girls

Standard

I’m in the mood to recommend movies at the moment, so I’m going to recommend two that I’ve been watching repeatedly lately. πŸ˜€

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Being a Lord of the Rings fan thanks to my dad, I definitely didn’t want to miss a chance at a return to Middle Earth! And when I did get that chance, this movie did not disappoint. Now before I get into more detail, let me say that I’m not a hardcore fan, am not declaring to be so, and have not read the book. I just didn’t want anyone to think I was raving about it and pretending to be someone who’s been a fan from the start and has read the book. πŸ™‚ ANYWAY! I loved the familiar start, with old Bilbo and Frodo talking. It felt like a welcome home. πŸ˜€ I’m not gonna give away much spoilers save for those in the trailer after this, to spare those who haven’t seen the movie. The dwarves, as seen in the trailer, each have different personalities and stand out in his own way. They are an amusing bunch especially in the opening scenes. My three favorites would have to be Fili and Kili, and Bofur. I don’t think Fili and Kili have to go with an explanation, I’m a girl after all and look at them. HAHA. πŸ˜€ Bofur however was an endearing dwarf with a good sense of humor and a comforting presence. He cared a lot about Bilbo and everyone else and I liked that. He had a big heart. πŸ™‚ There are also other familiar characters like Elrond, Galadriel, and Saruman. Anyway, the movie as a whole was enjoyable for a LOTR fan, and relatable for someone who hasn’t read most of the books.

The Hobbit

Les MisΓ©rables

This movie I just saw yesterday with my best friend/sister Mia and her sister Maryose. It was very emotional, awe-inspiring, and breathtaking for me considering that I didn’t know the story or much about anything else in relation to it before yesterday. Some actors in it like Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russel Crowe, and Eddie Redmayne, I had no idea could sing so well! They were so good and made their roles come to life so seamlessly to me. All the raw emotion and pain and love were definitely felt. The children in the film were also especially amazing! So talented and so young! The character that moved me the most though was Eponine. Her tale was so tragic and to some extent I could relate. I’d recommend this film to people who have never seen or heard about Les Miserables before but want to, to true fans of Les Miserables (since Mia, a true fan from the start, really enjoyed it!), and to fans of musicals in general. I think they did it justice, even from the perspective of a Les Miserables first-timer. Teehee. πŸ™‚ Oh and btw, if you’re thinking of watching this, have tissue or a handkerchief ready! πŸ˜‰
