I used to do movie reviews over on FA but I don't think any one ever payed attention to them there so I'm going to try one here. Just got home from seeing these two movies:
Jack the giant slayer: It was an interesting retelling of the story. Rather slow getting into the fun parts but once the giants were found, all hell broke loose. This is not a good movie for small kids and half of the films features people being smashed, stomped on and eaten. The first scene with a giant had him biting a lamb's head off (while its alive). There's a lot of lord of the rings feel to this movie, but its only 2 hours compared to 3 movies. Worth watching though you could skip the first 20 minutes or so and not miss any thing important.
OZ the great and powerful: Slow and boring, you'd think it'd pick up when he got to Oz as they showed every thing to be alive and magical, then nothing was any more. Just him trying to con and womanize till he ends up having to con the witches into leaving. They should have used some of the money they blew on big name actors on better writers. The only positive for me was the little china girl as I have a kink for micro stuff (nothing yiffy, she was just cute though her personality flip-flopped a few times). They snuck in stuff from the original movie, but you had to look for it. Not sure if this is worth watching or not. There's a good number of times they throw stuff at you so its meant for 3D.
