I got to go to a special advance screening of The Hobbit last night thanks to my mother-in-law. It was some sort of official thing put on by this company they contract with, so there was some pretty sweet swag we got.

Overall, LOVED IT. I haven't actually read the book (I know, I know), so I can't really compare it to that. But I thought it was great.

Some general things:
1) I don't know if you heard, but after the New Zealand premiere, some people were complaining about the 48 fps causing migraines and physical illness. I didn't notice any of that, but there were a couple scenes where the camera was moving very quickly and cutting sharply at time. That did cause me to have to glance away a couple times.
2) The running time is about 2:45, so make sure you pee before the movie starts. ;-)

And now, a couple movie specific things aka spoilers, unless you've read the book )

Saw Pitch Perfect this afternoon. I enjoyed it a great deal. Went and downloaded the soundtrack when I got home. It's fairly predictable in the standard Hollywood-fair way, but I still liked it. Rebel Wilson is HILARIOUS. Skylar Astin reminds me of a Zachary Levi in some ways. Which is good. I like Zachary. 4/5

My little car passed 75,000 miles today. With any luck, I will have a new car by the end of the month. *fingers crossed*

ETA: And I saw the Google Maps car today!! Drove by it and everything. So, in a couple months, my car could be on Google Maps! Hehe.

Hubby and I went out on a double date last night to dinner and a movie. We saw This Means War. It was awesome. It was also completely ridiculous, but it's a movie that is aware of its ridiculousness so that makes it awesome. It was entirely predictable, but still quite funny. There were several places where the whole theater was laughing out loud. Including my husband and he is very picky. So, yeah. Definitely recommend it. 4/5

We've also started watching a Canadian TV series through Netflix - Slings and Arrows. It stars Paul Gross as an actor who takes over as director of a large theater festival when the current director dies. A young Rachel McAdams is one of the costars, too. It's fantastic. Weird and kooky and everything Canadian TV is. I wish we got more Canadian series down here. Seriously, they're fantastic.

I also watched the livestream of "8" last night when we got home. For those that don't know, "8" is a play that was written by Dustin Lance Black that is a dramatic retelling of the trials that led to the repealing of Prop 8 in California. I say "dramatic retelling" because it's highly condensed, but it doesn't seem like it was overly dramatized into, like, a Lifetime Movie of the Week thing, if that makes sense. It's definitely worth watching if you can find the two hours to spare. It's up here on YouTube.

With most TV shows being on their winter hiatus, I've finally managed to make my way through some of my Netflix queue. Here are some reviews of my recent watches: Horrible Bosses, You Again and Morning Glory.

Let's all go to the lobby... )

So, yeah. That's it! :-)
