If you do not intend to pay money to go watch this film,
then please never return to this blog ever again.
I just watched it today, and boy, i regret nothing.
No spoilers as I'll just try to describe to you with not much detail on how amazing this film is so you'll go watch it and then you may come back here and prove me right. This film has Yeti's and elves, eggs with legs and baby teeth flying all over the place! Please, everyone, contain your immature excitement. No, it's okay, I'M JUST KIDDING. PLEASE SHARE MY JOY.
It has been a very, very long time since I've watched an animated film and have that warm fuzzy feeling inside. The very best of fuzzy.
The film is basically about the big four, Santa who is now Russian and has a cool nickname 'North', the tooth fairy 'Toothania' who is half human half hummingbird, the easter rabbit 'Bunnymund' that has an Australian accent and an attitude to go with and last but not least the Sandman, 'Sandy' who is mute but compensates this by being so out-of-this-world adorable. Of course, there is Jack Frost the lead and bad guy Pitch Black aka The Boogie Man (who I dislike very much due to my hatred towards the dark) Animated films these days have got to have the cute 'minions' like those in Despicable Me, and trust me ROTG does not disappoint.
That fuzzy feeling I mentioned is such a rare emotion to have. The Rise Of The Guardians seems to be answering all my childhood questions that Disney had yet to satisfy me over the years. So well done DreamWorks! Santa was cool and fit, not the chubby red cheeked we grew up with. HE HAS SLEEVE TATTOOS ON BOTH ARMS AS HIS NAUGHTY & NICE LIST FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. It's everything but conventional and it blows my mind.
(he's so bad ass I think I need to watch it again tomorrow)
These radical changes turned my world upside down, such new perspectives were exactly what I have been looking for in these myths and legends. I truly do not understand those who refuse to watch animated movies and I don't think I ever will. I pity those who can no long enjoy a film because it's animated. What difference does it make? Be a kid again, don't get so caught up with being mature and all grown up. Guurrrll, please. How long has it been since you lit up that tiny remaining spark of your imagination? I think it is absolutely crucial to keep the child inside of you alive. To be honest, I'm not really sure why myself. At least, keep him/her alive so that you can go watch a movie like ROTG and escape reality to fantasy even just for a couple hours. There might be tears, or there might be people in denial from all the cuteness going on and there may possibly... most likely be a lot of bliss. Pure, beautiful bliss.
If this movie doesn't send you home smiling, I don't know what will.
on a side note, I just made YouTube partner. HOLLA!
