Well its catch up time. I have been swamped with school working on my degree so, sorry but I have a lot of reviews coming in February. Starting with The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies. While I thought that the second of The Hobbit movies was good it was still long. This one was not quite as bad and felt like a good length. This film was not bad but like all The Hobbit movies, this isn’t Lord of the Rings. All I mean is that the movies are not as good as they were. Personally the biggest thing these films had going for them were the actors involved. That is definitely the case here because there are some very good scenes that are elevated by the actors. Martin Freeman is a great young Bilbo as he always has been. Ian McKellen is great as Gandalf as usual and while Peter Jackson has a great directing style, let’s hope that he steps outside Middle Earth for his next film. I give the last of The Hobbit films three and a half rings out of five.
FREDDY’s DEAD: The Final Nightmare or A Nightmare on Elm Street 6 was released in 1990 to lukewarm reaction by both fans and critics alike. I personally find this to be the funniest Nightmare film to date and that is saying something. I laughed more than anything else in this film at the sheer stupidity of this particular story, however that being said I thought the back story stuff about Freddy and his family was pretty great and the cameos in this one are kind of cool especially the Johnny Depp one. This film was written and directed by long time Freddy collaborator Rachel Talalay, and one pretty cool fact was that Lord of the Rings Director Peter Jackson was working on a version of this film called The Dream Lover. While I do not love this film I don’t quite despise it either. I give Freddy’s Dead the Final Nightmare 3 stars out of 5.
