The Hobbit was a nice movie. I have read the book twice but a long time ago. I really enjoyed the movie. Its amazing how they are able to create the fantasy world. I was like WTF, some of the settings are as I have pictured while I was reading the book. Credit to Tolkein and his vivid writing. Like LOTR, the wait is a big no.
Gary Oldman has been cast in the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes; Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Dylan Baker and Meagan Good have been cast in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Surprise to just have found out that there's a sequel to 300; 300: Rise of an Empire. Read more about it here.

New trailer for Iron Man 3:
I've seen Confessions(2010) and the TV adaptation of one of my favourite books "The Kite Runner". The first movie is a psychological thriller that keeps you wondering wtf is going on, whilst the second is the redemption story of Afghan American (it touches topics such as loyalty, friendship, dishonesty, invasion, immigration, Taliban regime and so on). All those interested in drama might like both movies.
I watched some interesting movies and documentaries that I would recommend to anyone, here goes:
1. Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph of Melanin (documentary)
2. The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard (documentary)
3. The Master (movie)
4. The Rise of the Guardians (movie-animation)
5. The Secret World of Arrietty (movie-animation)
6. The Man with the Iron Fists (movie)
A few days ago I watched Oz The Great and Powerful in cinema as part of a double bill. It starts off quite funny, with its black and white small screen look to it, then changes to this widescreen magical wonderland view. The film as a whole feels very long, from about half way through I got the feeling I wanted it to end already; which is never a good sign. The plot isn't terribly complex at all, the acting is next to generic, James Franco is...well, he's James Franco. It's a good family film, if you have any younger siblings, niece/nephews/cousins you want to take, they would really enjoy it. It's good some humorous scenes with the creatures inhabiting the wonderland. 5/10
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was the second film I saw and it was exactly what I expected but I enjoyed it a tad bit more than I thought I would. A really good friday night film, lots of actions and well placed comedy. It's not your award winning film but one that you'd enjoy with friends and could watch at home. Straightforward story, though some revelations are scattered to create suspense and surprise. The duo playing the titled characters (Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arteton) have very good on screen chemistry, which makes their characters quite loveable and their interactions, particularly in moments recalling their childhood are good scenes, I found. 7/10
Trailer for Kick-Ass 2 is out:

Damn the video no longer works.

Jurassic 4 has a director! Not sure whether to be excited or nonchalant about it
Saw Rise of the Guardians, and I didn't expect it to be a bit... um... promising. It had a lot of potential, and you could tell they kind of tried hard, and you could see where they wanted to go, but an hour and a half just didn't permit them to show what the story had to offer. Which is disappointing because I enjoyed it for what it was trying to be.
