Things I Like: Paddington (2014 Film)

Paddington Bear has been a classic children’s book character since 1958. I actually had never heard of him until very recently. I suppose he’s more popular in Great Britian than he was in America. Now there is a feature film for Paddington, and I decided to see if I would like the ol’ bear myself.Continue reading “Things I Like: Paddington (2014 Film)”

Things I Like: Australia (2008 Film)

Australia is a movie I had never heard of back in 2008. Though in the last year or two I had heard about it, and I was surprised to see Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman play in a movie where they play Australians like themselves. Except I later learned that Kidman’s character is actually BritishContinue reading “Things I Like: Australia (2008 Film)”

Things I Like: Cold Mountain (2003 Film)

I somewhat remember when Cold Mountain came out in 2003. I knew it was about the Civil War, but not much else. Now over a decade later, I decided to see it.

Things I Hate: The Golden Compass (2007 Film)

Movies based on books often are good, but my feelings are little mixed. Like the novel (from what I hear), the story is setContinue reading “Things I Hate: The Golden Compass (2007 Film)”

Things I Hate: Bewitched (2005 Film)

I liked the TV show, but this was just awful. It’s basically the same plot of the show. Except the movie is about them making the TV show, except the witch is really a witch. All I can really say is that the film is just plain boring and dull. I can’t believe I satContinue reading “Things I Hate: Bewitched (2005 Film)”
