The only villain I like. He’s the only reason this option didn’t get trashed. I don’t generally like villains, but in The Avengers I was almost rooting for Loki. (Almost!)
Tom Hiddleston as a human being keeps Loki fascinating in my book. When an actor turns out to not be so great of a person, it makes it hard to still enjoy their great characters. Hiddleston is awesome. He’s respectable, a gentleman, and great at what he does.
I have to pick the entire musical contents of this movie. I dislike none of the songs, and it’s somehow not quite Christmas without listening to the music from Home Alone (even if it’s just by watching the movie).
Sure, I could have picked any number of songs from a lot of movies for their great scores (such as Spider-Man 2 for every song, or X-Men: First Class especially for “Magneto“), but I have to go with this one.
I don’t even really know why I love this movie so much. It’s definitely a love-it-or-hate-it movie. Normally when I watch a movie with this type of absurdly ridiculous humour, I get angry that someone’s brain spewed such nonsense and called it funny. But here, there’s something about this movie that changes it from an absolute no-no to I’m-just-going-to-dance-around-the-room-and-smile-until-it’s-over. (Unless my least favourite scene is on — then I am angry at the absurdity, haha.)
Maybe it’s the comedic pairing of Oliver Platt and Stanley Tucci. Perhaps it’s Steve Buscemi’s suicidal character whose name is ironically “Happy.” Maybe it’s how all the stories get tied together by the end of the movie. Maybe I just happened to rediscover it at the tail-end of the time in my life when I might consider this sort of stupid humour as actually being funny.
While it’s a mix of a bunch of reasons, I’m convinced it’s mostly the last point. It also wouldn’t have been possible without the first. I love Platt and Tucci as actors, and their characters in this movie are absolutely adorable with their child-like innocence.
I have several favourites, but the only reason this was easy was because I was able to pair my other favourite Disney movies with other topics on this 30 Day Movie Challenge.
As usual, I like each and every character for different reasons, but honestly, I want a Baymax. My very own Baymax. When I’m sick, he’ll know exactly what’s wrong and how to fix it. He’d be my cuddle buddy — like a walking, talking teddy bear. Et cetera.
I’ve admitted it before, but I’m glad that Disney bought Marvel. We’ll cover that in another post.
Another one that won’t sway me with a debate. Yes, each movie has its pros and cons, but overall I think this is the best movie trilogy ever made.
I generally hate sequels — most of the time they’re a huge letdown. I always give them a chance, though, because you never know which ones are going to be an exception.
Back to the Future was meant to be a stand-alone movie; however, with the way it ended, fans demanded a sequel. I think they did a brilliant job of making it work, especially by giving it a feeling of completion at the end of part three.
Just for kicks and giggles, I’m going to leave this here:
I love movies. Unless you’re new here, you know this. I can read all day, but by evening I decide it’s time to watch a movie so I can relax before bedtime.
I keep going back to my post about the 30-Day Movie Challenge and decided I wanted to do it again. I made a new post using the same questions, and had as many different answers as I could, but I wanted something new.
Here’s a fresh list. Most of the topics are compiled from various other challenges while some are my own. It guarantees that I won’t have any options that don’t particularly apply to me, or are just too hard to decide.
I’m also going to do this a bit differently. I’ll leave the list of topics here, but will also do my best to make posts about the movies I watch to suit them. (Movies I’ve already written about will be linked.) I will link my choices to the topics here once they are posted.
