This week's movie was Frozen. Yup. Finally saw it. I'm not really certain what to say. I guess my first thought after it was over was, "Why on earth did this movie become a cultural touchstone?" I mean, it's not that it was bad. It just wasn't nearly as fantastic as people have made it out to be. There were a few plot oddities. A couple of good plot twists. The music was lovely. But overall, I'm just not sure what the big deal is. I suspect I would have enjoyed it much more if I hadn't gone into watching it with the knowledge that it has become so popular. I was expecting a lot more, and I think high expectations kind of ruined it for me.
DCBS comic books that I've gotten around to reading and reviewing, sorted by the original shipping date:
- Mar 12th
- Justice League of America #13 - As I suspected, but I'm really getting tired of this storyline and how long it's taking to play out. Just finish already.
- Green Lantern Corps #29 - And, once again, everything ramps up a little more with another revelation.
- Justice League 3000 #4 - And so the brutal secret comes out. And everybody is in danger yet again. Whee.
- Smallville Alien #4 - So the Smallville universe is headed toward the Crisis on Infinite Earths. Whee?
- Astro City #10 - There was no way I could predict the ending, because there seemed to be no way out. I'm pleased with what happened. This is a great book, one that nearly brought tears to my eyes yet again.
- Beasts of Burden: Hunter Gatherers - Oh man. I wish this was the first issue in a new mini-series and not a one-shot! Especially since it ends on a part-cliffhanger. Excellent as usual, well worth getting if you like paranormal stuff and our furry friends at all.
- Spongebob Comics #30 - I had a feeling that opening story was going to end that way. The usual stuff.
