Watched a couple of movies this week - Oculus and Kung Fu Panda 3 and they couldn't have been more different!
Oculus was on Shomi and I don't usually go for scary movies, but this one seemed interesting to me from the description, so I went for it. And I have to say that I really enjoyed it. This wasn't a gory movie, and it wasn't boo around every single corner, so I wasn't freaked out ten minutes in and not wanting to see anymore.
The story was interesting, but even more interesting was the story-telling. It would move from the present to the past as the two main characters reminisced, but the further you got into the movie, the more seamless and mixed together the past and present parts were. It really gave the audience the feeling of not knowing what was real and what wasn't, which was the problem that the two main characters were having. I very much recommend it.
I also watched Kung Fu Panda 3 which had just come out on BluRay and it was totally cute and charming as I figured it would be. And Master Ugway was back! Funny how the turtles are often the Zen dudes in animated films - the other one I'm thinking of is the turtles from Finding Nemo.
The one thing I totally loved about this movie was the music for the bad guy. It made me smile every time it came on.
I will also admit that, like most animated movies, about twenty minutes in I had a nice little nap. Oops.
The Secret Life of Pets opens this weekend, and I just might have to make a trip out to see it.
