Along with 30+ other bloggers, I've just completed week two of the annual movie challenge. As much as the challenge is about the movies - as it should be - I have to say that I really enjoy getting to provide the rest of the group with feedback on my opinion of the movies and have a group discussion of a few of them.
I wish I could say that I made as much headway this week as I did in week one!
What IMDB says: When Tony Stark's world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution.
What I say: Confession...I am a total Marvel movie (and TV) geek. Give me a marathon of Agents of SHIELD, The Avengers and movies that feed into it and I am a nerdtastically happy girl. I couldn't tell you how I didn't watch this movie sooner (I'm blaming the fact that I keep watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier instead). I really liked this movie (obviously), even if Tony Stark is the most arrogant character known to man.
What IMDB says: A pair of former high school sweethearts reunite after many years when they return to visit their small hometown.
What I say: A sweet movie and I would watch it again. I was disappointed in the ending though... It just didn't deliver what I expected of Nicholas Sparks. However - I didn't read the book, so I don't know if the movie deviated from the original story.
What IMDB says: After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.
What I say: I really like this movie! Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have such chemistry! It was a believable approach to a character rediscovering themselves after a mental breakdown...and it's easy to root for two flawed (but loveable) characters to find joy.
What IMDB says: Sam Witwicky leaves the Autobots behind for a normal life. But when his mind is filled with cryptic symbols, the Decepticons target him and he is dragged back into the Transformers' war.
What I say: It's an action packed movie, that's for sure. While nothing was wrong with it per se - Megan Fox kind of annoyed me.
