Star Wars: The Force Awakens. IN THEATER. And yes, it was totally awesome. Scores more points for NOT giving me a headache like Battle of the Five Armies did.

I think Battle of Five Armies gave everyone a headache...just because it was a pretty terrible movie in general.

Well at least it was better than the first two Hobbit movies.

The only thing that made The Hobbit movies worth watching was Martin Freeman. A perfect choice for the role of Bilbo, I believe.

I watched August Rush. The music was pretty.... That's pretty much it. :anxious:

It was waaaaaaaaaaay too long. That was the worst part of it. I think, personally, that the first one was the best.

I thought Kili was quite enjoyable. :twisted: And Bard...I want a whole movie about Bard and his children. Like, an epic quest to....something. Whatever. I don't care, so long as it has them in it. :P

I just got back from Zootopia, and I adored it! It was such a great movie, such a great story and moral too. <3

I saw Zootopia for my birthday. It wasn't quite as cute or emotional as previous Disney Animations Studios movies, but it was still really good. I feel like the story got lost in it's metaphors though.

I can't wait to see it. :)

I watch The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey; Extended Addition. We got it for Christmas! It's A LOT better with the extended. xD More of Martian Freeman's face. :yes:

Martian Freeman's face just makes anything better.

I can't recommend Zootopia enough, my roommates and I are going to see it again, we liked it so much.

So, who all is excited to see The Young Messiah? The movie about the books in the Bible that, ya know, talks about Jesus' years from 12-30.

I thought it was about Jesus when he was 7 years old? :?

I watched August rush last night. It was such a sad sweet story. And since it is about music, of course I lived it!

That movie was very strange, but the music is gorgeous! I was expecting Robin Williams to break out in a joke the whole movie... O.o

I watched Zootopia for the second time with my mama. It's a really good movie. :) I highly recommend it.

Whale, I just got back from Captain America Civil War. It was my first marvel movie ever, and I didn't know who most of the characters were, but for someone who doesn't like action movies, I did enjoy it for the most part, but I'm still slightly confused about some of it. :P

I liked it, for the most part, but I'd definitely recommend seeing The Winter Soldier, which, in my opinion, is a better film—not only in terms of characterization and streamlined plot, but also in terms of the political themes that it addresses. Civil War almost gave me the feeling like I was watching two different movies, one with political themes and one with action hero themes. (I also heard that there was some executive meddling on this film that didn't occur during TWS, so that may have something to do with it—if it's true.) I'm thinking of writing a lengthy review on ye ol' Tumbles, but I don't know if my thoughts are organized enough yet. (I do know that I'm still Team Cap, though.)

Awesome Belle!
Yes, you do sorta have to watch the other movies to understand the plot, there's a bit of references to previous movies.
What confused you?

Well, having never seen any marvel movies, I didn't really know much about what happened before this movie. Only stuff I had seen on pinterest.
