Week in Review: 12/28/14

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) How to Train Your Dragon 2 - An excellent follow-up to an excellent movie.  I appreciated that they didn't pull any punches when they tried to go for moments of gravitas and drama; too many movies - especially comic book movies and kids movies - handle moments like that with so soft a touch that they might as well have not even bothered in the first place.  Dragon 2 goes to some interesting and tragic places and is a great movie for it.  I'd give it a higher rating, but I feel like they maybe bit off a little more than they could chew by the end - some of the characters (like Eret) come off as kind of empty overall.  Still, it's an excellent film.

My Rating: 4 / 5

Total: 1 Movie

Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

Nothing.  Regrettably.

The Winner: Movies...

I wish I had more to say for my final Week in Review for the year, but there hasn't been a whole lot going on besides baby stuff, holidays, and a general malaise.  Maybe I just need some time off to get my head back in the game.  Let's see how January goes.
