The battles where predictable, and I cannot say that I cared about them. This movie contained too much deus ex machina for my taste. I saw noThe battles where predictable, and I cannot say that I cared about them. This movie contained too much deus ex machina for my taste. I saw no new interesting art work in the film apart from the other films. I can only conclude that they re-used assets (ie. 3D models, sounds etc.) from previous films to cut cost as much as possible.… Full Review »
Let me start with the good points: Jamie Fox did a nice job of playing Stacks, the new Warbucks. That almost sickeningly cute Wallis kid wasLet me start with the good points: Jamie Fox did a nice job of playing Stacks, the new Warbucks. That almost sickeningly cute Wallis kid was just that. Hard Knock Life was a well done musical number. There were a few funny cute moments that made me smile.
Now for a longer list. Cameron Diaz was not a good Hannigan. It was pretty much unwatchable any time she was on the screen. The acting in general was terrible. They really should have done a lot more singing, because at least then things were tolerable. That being said, the musical numbers weren't good. Not over the top enough, but subdued just enough to be awkward and weird.
On top of that, the movie never addressed the key point of: Just where are Annie's parents? I feel bad for this movie Annie...she's going to live her life with the rich Stacks and never know if here parents are alive or not. In the stage production that is address.
Save you money. Watch it at home if you watch it at all. Or better yet, look up Hard Knock Life on YouTube and just watch that.… Full Review »
This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The only epic moment in the movie was the Star Wars:Force Awakens trailer in 3d.
So boring scenes and a very poor CGI was in the movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed Unexpected Journey. The Desolation of Smaug turned me off( I rated DOS 6/10.) I was not looking forward to the final installment of the Hobbit. I, of course, was going to see the movie no matter what. This was a blessing. The reverse of expectation. Instead of expecting something special I went in without high demands. If you start to compare this movie to the beloved book your experience is doomed. If you want a three hour roller-coaster ride thinly based on the book your in for a treat. I saw the movie on Imax. Of all three movies you would expect this movie to be the best for Imax, it was not. A good sound system, a comfy seat, go for that, not 3D. I am a fan of the higher frame rate. The fact that it makes the scenes with practical effects look like a BBC documentary do not bother me. The fact that we get added scenes of high fantasy(elf on dwarf love) while leaving out touching fantasy like talking birds and wargs from the book do not bother me. This is not the Hobbit, this is the battle of the Five Armies from the director of King Kong 4.0. I had a blast, well worth the price of admission, the series will be missed. I also feel that practical effects will make a huge comeback due in part to this movie and others, and that is not a bad thing either. I shall look back on these Hobbit films fondly, for what the are, for what they lack. I did not get the sense of awe as I did with the LOTR films. I had no vested interest in Bilbo or the Dwarves this time around, and maybe that's for the best. I will re-read the book. I will watch Fellowship on blue-ray. The trilogy ended with a big smile on my face, no tears, but no regrets. A solid 8/10 for movie experience.… Full Review »
The whole movie is awesome, from the scenery and the community the whole story is put in, to the monstrously gory practical effects. TheThe whole movie is awesome, from the scenery and the community the whole story is put in, to the monstrously gory practical effects. The ending, though, along with the musical score, brought tears to my eyes. Brutally, unabashedly melancholic. The Canadian answer to "Donnie Darko".… Full Review »
