I don’t get out to see a whole lot of movies. I haven’t even seen the new Hobbit movie and I really want to, if only to see the dragon scenes.
I mean, the scene where Bilbo praises Smaug? That’s a tightrope of a scene there. And when it comes to Smaug’s voice? I understand that they got Benedict Cumberbatch. As someone who grew up with Richard Boone, I can’t help but wonder.
Then again, maybe a British Accent will improve the dragonness.
In any case, I still haven’t wandered over to the theater to catch that one. Maybe this week.
The movie that I’m downright antsy to see, though? She. No, wait. Her.
This is pretty obviously Oscar-bait but, in this case, it’s Oscar bait that is in harmony with my neuroses rather than dissonant with them. (Red Flag: it’s Spike Jonze. Mitigating Factor: while it’s kinda true that I don’t exactly have a good relationship with his other movies, it’s not like I couldn’t see what he was going for.)
In any case, those are the two movies eating away at me currently.
What are you reading and/or watching (or just daydreaming about seeing eventually)?
