So today I went with my family to see Epic, based on a book written by William Joyce, and I had a good time. Dad said that it had a weak storyline, and I agree mainly because I find the concept of secret-world-with-little-people a regurgitation of Arthur and the Invisibles. However, it was really great to be hearing the voice of Josh Hutcherson for the whole movie and I liked the romantic intrigues.
The movie did succeed in having me thinking, "WHEN IS EVERYTHING GONNA BE OKAY ALREADY?!" Needless to say I was absorbed into the movie and was sufficiently entertained with suspense and humor at the same time. I laughed my head off several times, mainly due to the slug and snail. For me, the animation gets a resounding ten out of ten - seriously, the animators should get an award. The scenery of nature was absolutely beautiful, that's how well they nailed it. The ending was really sweet, since everything is wrapped up with a reconciled father-daughter relationship. Though I wouldn't necessarily describe the movie as totally "epic," I give the movie an overall score of an eight out of ten. If you want an excuse to get out of the house and have a nice time, I recommend seeing this movie with your friends. Later, bloggers!
