You knew I was going to leave Chris Evans last in this Hidden Gems adventure I had this year. Though I eventually had to squeeze two in one month, it all turned out well. The choices for December, Chris and Adam (who you read about yesterday, hopefully), were brilliant in terms of viewing pleasure. Leaving Hidden Gems with Chris Evans last was also a good decision. I ended on a relatively good note – that’s what I’m basically saying.
Happy birthday to Mettel Ray! My blog-baby is 10 years old today and I couldn’t describe my emotions even if I tried. It’s definitely a special day! Which is why I decided, due to the special occasion, that instead of just celebrating my blogiversary on May 1st, I’d prolong the celebrations to last for 10 days. That’s right, you’re getting 10 days of Mettel Ray Top 10 lists. It will be all very random, just like me, and the topics will range from movies, shows, music, books etc. First up, probably the hardest list I had to compile because there are a lot of movies I rewatch… but here are 10 movies that I love to go back to every now and then.
Fast and the Furious is one of those movie franchises that I’m familiar with but not too comfortable with. Like, I’ve seen some of the movies, none of them more than once and I think I’ll never watch the seventh movie – even though I watched the eighth. And it’s very unlikely that I’ll ever revisit the entire eight movie either, even though this movie surprised me a lot. That being said, I can’t deny the fact that I won’t seek out gifsets of Jason Statham saving a baby in the near future.
This one I saw like a million years ago, at least it seems like it has been that long. The whole reason why I watched this was because I really like James McAvoy and he was the voice of Gnomeo while Emily Blunt was Juliet. Like the name of the movie implies, the story is about Romeo and Juliet as gnomes – I have to admit, it sounds clever. Gnomeo is the prince of the blues and Juliet is the princess of reds. This is just like in the original story, they fall in love, the families have a long history of feud going on they fight and stuff but the end is a bit different. The end is less tragic and more like happy and stuff – surprise surprise.
It is hard to say anything about this animation because it lacked those unforgettable characters and bunch lines, like for instance I still remember the Ice Age’s “Fish!” moment and Shrek’s “In the morning, I’m making waffles!” – those are some really good moments and to be fair, I don’t remember anything specific about Gnomeo and Juliet. This said, I would think that this animation is quite average and is not as entertaining for adults as for instance Ice Age and Shrek could be. So from me 2 out of 5 for this one and mostly because of James McAvoy’s and Jason Statham’s voices that were like honey to my ears.
