@mark-kamibaya What’s an indie?
@ethryndal I know. The only thing protecting me now are my dragon instincts….and the fact that I’m not alone. I side with @daeus. 😀
@kate-flournoy Well, about the arcs, one reason I didn’t really see them was because they seemed to happen so fast. It didn’t seem like Cassian cared about anything then suddenly he’s nice. Jyn was really just unrelatable to me. I mean, maybe its a mix of my two Disney dislike/cliches. Dystopian rebellious girl along with Disney orphan… ?
And the theme, it didn’t really seem like anyone had very much hope. They seemed pretty confident that they would lose.

@dragon-snapper no no, you missed it! They weren’t hoping for themselves. They did what they did in hopes that the people who survived them could use it to make a better world. In faith, I guess.
And… I haven’t watched a ton of Disney, so I guess I didn’t have that problem. For myself, I can just say I don’t think I’ve ever related to an entire cast as completely as I did with this one.
I suppose of taste there can be no discussion. 😉June 7, 2017 at 9:50 pm #34439
@holly-nelson-gray @emily-d What’d you think and why? I’m really curious
@dragon-snapper It’s simply a film made outside of maninstream media. So, basically, a movie made without a big budget. And, because of the low budget, they’re usually dramas. Not huge action flicks. Examples of indies: Little Miss Sunshine or Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl. Most Christian films count as indies too.June 8, 2017 at 5:58 am #34443
@mark-kamibaya Yeah, it was really good! I enjoyed it. BUT I like Do You Believe better. And What If. Have you seen them? They’re amazing. (And What If is hilarious. It’s about this millionaire guy who-AND I’m going to stop right there before I spoil the plot. Long story short: it’s hilarious.) Have you seen either of those?

@emily-d I’m not proud to say it, but I haven’t seen either of those. I just wanted to know if they’re worth my time. And I guess, because of your answer, they are.June 9, 2017 at 6:22 am #34484
@mark-kamibaya Yes they are totally worth it. Do You Believe is not a funny movie, but it’s still really good. But I think What If is even better. 🙂

*runs into room* *hunches over to catch breath*
So…I don’t think anyone has reviewed the new Beauty and the Beast movie yet. I saw it last week.
I think they did a pretty good job of fleshing out the characters. Dan Stevens as the Beast was an excellent casting choice. He was gruff and cold, but he had an underlying sadness and hurt throughout the movie.
Belle (Emma Watson) was not quite the lively bookworm we saw in the animated film. She can certainly act, but I feel like she didn’t put everything she had into the role. She has a beautiful singing voice, even if it’s not strong and powerful. Overall, she was simply good, but nowhere near excellent as Belle (and this is just my humble opinion of course).
They also did a great job with backstories. In the animated film I always wondered where exactly Belle’s mother is. You’re given some answers in the remake.
WARNING: the film is rated PG for “action violence, peril and frightening images”. However there is other questionable material. This was very disappointing to me. And it made me really sad about where our world is today. Just FYI on that.
Overall, I think the movie was very well done. The sets were magnificent and the costumes were stunning. My advice: watch it.

@ingridrd Sounds awesome. I was wondering how much they reinvented the film. It sounds like Disney did a fantastic job.October 21, 2017 at 1:12 pm #49179

Hey guys! I’m amazed at how it took me to find this topic!!! My new favorite topic on Kingdom Pen probably. There were too many pages so I had to stop after page five or so, but from what I know, I’ve literally watched every movie their is except for horrors and romance. Even then, I do watch those sometimes. I’ve seen every Marvel movie besides Daredevil, Punisher, etc. (I don’t like the old ones, they’re pretty bad)
I’ve seen a bunch of DC movies, but not all of them since a bunch are pretty dark. I watch most of the animated ones though.
I’m okay with X-Men. And I wish my mom would allow me to watch Logan. I don’t regret NOT watching Deadpool though.
I’ve seen all the HTTYD movies and most of their shows as well as all the books. I’ve since stopped being a fan of HTTYD, but I guess I’ll have to watch the 3rd one that’s coming out in 2019.
As for my favorite movie: I have A LOT. So it really does depend on what type…. so:
ACTION: Pacific Rim or Age of Ultron or Hunger Games
SCI-FI: Rogue One or Godzilla
DRAMA: Real Steel or Sully or the Planet of the Apes series
HORROR: Uh… I Am Legend or Beetlejuice
ROMANCE: Again, I don’t really watch these so… Big or Princess Bride
DISASTER: I’ve watched a lot of these, but I don’t really remember which ones exactly so let’s just leave it at San Andreas
DYSTOPIAN: I already said Hunger Games earlier so… the Maze Runner
Anyways, that’s pretty much it. Great topic!
