Django Unchained (2012)

This was great great great great great up until the handshake scene.  Then it just became a gratuitous grindhouse feature.  It might have even been noble to leave it with the handshake, but I guess that wasn't in the cards.

First Tarantino movie I have no desire to ever see again.

Rise of the Guardians (2012)

Rated: PG - Runtime: 97 min
tesg's Rating: Two stars (out of four)

So basically Santa (complete with Russian accent, one of several accents I'm guessing is designed to pop the foreign box office), the Tooth Fairy, the ugliest Easter Bunny you'll ever see, and the Sandman are a guild of guardians who protect children from harm.  Suddenly, the Man in the Moon appoints Jack Frost as a fifth guardian, which causes some questions.  They all team up to take on Pitch Black, aka the Boogeyman, who wants to take away the Guardian powers through the power of disbelief.


Why'd I go to this?
