Shiny and Chrome

These past two weeks I have seen my share of movies: The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Pitch Perfect 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road.  I also saw that horse show Odysseo, but more on that later.

PP2 Movie buddy Esther 🙂

If I’m honest, my favourite out of the bunch was probably PP2 which I found super funny. And yes Becca is right, Kommissar is really hot. I think Becca’s boss could have had better lines and the whole final show thing was a bit ridiculous (the Germans were better), but it was enjoyable. Perhaps I was just in a really good mood when I saw it.

The Avengers was alright. I saw it in 3D, which I didn’t think was necessary (I’m pretty sure 3D is a scam) and I mean it was enjoyable. They spent a hell of a lot of time saving people though and I never really got Ultron’s motives. I left the theatre with a feeling of “that was really awesome!” and then later when you actually think about it, it was just alright – exactly how I felt about the first one.

Mad Max was what I actually wanted to talk about though (I saw that in 3D as well, smh). I was laughing so much my friend said she’ll never watch a movie with me again. I found the whole thing utterly ridiculous as did the girl sitting next to me – we snickered along together. I know it’s not meant to be anything serious but some parts were just like why?! Why is that man in a bright red onesie playing electric guitar strapped to the front of a big rig, a thing? I also gave up early on trying to understand half of the dialogue. The only names I knew by the end were Max and Furiosa. In the end, I don’t know if it’s a good or bad movie. I suppose it just is what it is. “May you arrive at the gates of Valhalla, shiny and chrome…”

On a non-movie related note, I went to see that horse show that has billboards everywhere in town: Odysseo by Cavalia. It’s a show that combines acrobatics, live music, dance and horse skills (equestrian talents? I don’t know how to phrase it) into one two hour production. While it was entertaining, my brother and I both felt that you need a real love and/or understanding of horses to truly appreciate it. My dad loved it, which was great because he paid for it 😛
