Who would have thought that RISE OF THE GUARDIANS is the best film this holiday season? It was low on my list of films to watch despite the fact that it has an original concept of mythical characters who banded together as superheroes to fight evil and protect the children. By the end of the movie, the entire room gave it a clapping ovation. That’s when I realized I just watched something special that appeals to kids and adults alike.
I also watched LIFE OF PI and its exactly meet my expectation, a decent and beautifully shot movie that’s slow paced with prolonged philosophical musings. It also offered two versions of the endings for the audience to choose which one to belief.
