What Brave did right and what it could have done better

Posted by nightphoenix on June 29, 2012 in Input, Screen |

Like many, I went to see Brave this last weekend. It was an enjoyable movie, although I don’t think we will be taking our six-year-old. This is the child who decided that Arrietty was too scary; thus, I don’t see him coping well with the bear scenes. Some of those scared me a bit. Warning: […]

Last night

Posted by nightphoenix on September 25, 2010 in Screen |

Um. It is not wise to go see Legend of the Guardians, and then finish the last book in the Percy Jackson series in a single night. Unless you want some really strange dreams. (I’m pretty sure there was some Rah Xephon mixed in there too. 😛 ) However, Guardians is worth seeing for about […]

Inception and the Matrix

Posted by nightphoenix on August 14, 2010 in Input, Screen |

As you might guess from the title, the hubby and I finally got our chance to see this movie. It was well worth the wait. I think the last film I saw starring DiCaprio was Titanic, when I was what…12? 13? It’s not that I don’t like him as an actor, although there is a […]

Wisdom from Ice Age

Posted by nightphoenix on March 2, 2010 in Input, Screen |

There’s a particular exchange from the movie Ice Age that I think rather illuminates why intimidation does not draw people closer to God. I know…deep, right? Here’s the actual passage: MANFRED: You…check for poop. SID: Why am I the poop-checker? MANFRED: Because returning the runt was your idea, because you’re small and insignificant, and because […]

The Lightning Thief

Posted by nightphoenix on February 23, 2010 in Input, Screen |

Yeah, yeah, I know it’s Tuesday. Deal. The hubby and I saw The Lightning Thief last Friday. Now I know what Debra Dixon was talking about, that you’ll never be able to watch a movie again without picking it apart. Gah. I was GMCing all the characters AND trying to determine where the hero was […]

Hopefully it really will be this good…

I just happened across a new trailer for The Last Airbender (M. Night Shyamalan’s take on the awesome Avatar series that Nickelodeon put out). Looks pretty cool, though I worry that Aang looks way too serious.

Well, if I’m never a *famous* writer, I’ll settle for this…

NORRINGTON: “You are without doubt the worst pirate I’ve ever heard of.” JACK SPARROW: “But you have heard of me.”   Jack Sparrow is one of those characters that makes me want to be a writer.

Avatar, quick-like

Posted by nightphoenix on December 22, 2009 in Screen |

Saw the movie Avatar on Saturday night. I suppose I could go on for hours, googly-eyed, about the special effects and the world and pretty, pretty stuff…but I think the movie critic community has beaten me to it. Never mind the CG; we all know it’s new and state-of-the-art and whatnot. The world Pandora itself […]

Twilight: New Moon

Posted by nightphoenix on December 6, 2009 in Screen |

Well, the hubby and I finally went to see New Moon…only about two weeks past the hype. First of all, whoever they have directing these movies definitely knows how to capture the general mood of the books, which I appreciate. Even with movies like Narnia and LOTR, there was an initial period where I had […]

The Knowing

Posted by nightphoenix on August 11, 2009 in Screen |

Last Friday night, the hubby and I watched The Knowing. Here it is Tuesday, and I’m finally getting around to writing down my thoughts. Efficient, Nightphoenix. Very efficient. Oh well. I had seen previews for this movie in the theaters, and thought it looked mildly interesting. Only somehow it didn’t seem to stay in the […]
