#thecollinhillTheater #MovieReviews #Spoilers this movie took me years to finally see, but I’m glad I did. The #Watchmen is a great movie based on the graphic novel. It’s all about superheroes, humanity, and morality. No ones perfect, and we should all know that by now. But there’s a fine line between good and evil sometimes.
This movie starts with the murder of The Comedian, a vigilante with a sociopathic personality. After another vigilante known as Rorschach investigates, he discovers The Comedian might have known things that he wasn’t supposed to.
I can’t possibly give a great summary of this movie as there are too many variables. It implements about 3 origins stories (an argument could be made for 4), a war, crime investigations, and goes back and forth from the mid 60s to the mid 80s, plus shows the problems and relationships between all the heroes. That does make it sound chaotic, but I promise you it is very well done.
The thing I love about this movie is what it says about human nature, and the questions it makes you ask yourself. What is right, and what is wrong? If a man murders a 5 year old girl, then feeds her bones to his dogs… How far can you go with teaching him a lesson? Does hacking up his face with a cleaver sound suitable? Or should you simply take him to jail?
I’ve always loved movies that question morality, and this movie doesn’t disappoint. The problems I have is that it’s really slow. It’s two and a half hours but feels almost an hour longer with how the story is told. The other thing I found disappointing is the lack of character development with some of the heroes. I was really hoping they would make a movie all about Rorschach, but that never happened.
4/5 for fantastic acting, a unique story, and interesting characters.

#thecollinhillTheater #MovieReviews #Spoilers When you’re watching the #LegoMovie everything is awesome! The only reason I agreed to go see this movie when it was in theater was because I took my little brother to go see it. I thought it was going to be the longest hour and a half of my life… But the truth is… I think I walked out of that theater loving it more than my brother. It’s just a fun movie. I didn’t feel childish for liking it at all, because it’s actually quite sophisticated considering it’s target audience. Another reason I went and saw it (after doing some research) was because of the voice actors. I didn’t know they had put so much talent into it until the day I went to see it! How do you go wrong with Jonah Hill, Liam Neeson, Channing Tatum, Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, and countless others? You can’t. You cannot possibly go wrong.
The Lego Movie teaches kids countless lessons, and they’re good lessons that I think a lot of us adults forget. Don’t judge a book by its cover, be yourself, etc. I thought it was smart to implement these lessons in to such an entertaining work of art.
The main love for this movie is the comedy. It’s cool hearing Liam Neeson suffer from dual personality and Will Arnett be a total douche bag as batman. Morgan Freeman has some good one liners as well.
This movie also showed a bit of diversity from a few actors. For example, Will Ferrell does not have a humorous role. It’s very serious. I was a bit surprised by that. He also has a part that puts a good spin on the story that I won’t spoil for you. It’s mind blowing!
The story is solid, the movie is fun, it’s teaches some good lessons, has some superior voice acting, and it makes you laugh constantly. I’m a huge fan of this film and can’t see how it wouldn’t be a 5 star film. I suggest you check it out.
