Dragons: Fire & Ice Reviews
The film is perfect for kids, but also has more than enough depth and complexity to keep adults enthralled. It takes the watcher down a morally ambiguous conflict filled world of strange people, dragons, krystals, goblins and wizards. Only a heart of stone could feel nothing at the climax of the movie, which neatly tidies up one of the most well taught out story lines I have seen in the dragon krystal wizard conflict genre.
In short, if you have kids or you are a fan of great movies this is a must watch.
Next, I had backtracked down the isle and choose a film that was sure to torchure my mate! Nothing like a musical/opera to send a heavy metal drummer screaming for the hills! The couch & remote were all mine for about 2 wonderful hours... It was just me and Gerhard Butler's eyes, and voice. *sigh* The costumes; wow... Minnie Driver as the spoiled actress/drama queen was too funny. But when it came to Emmy Rossum, I just wasn't prepared to hear how good she is, even though I'd seen the 60 minute episode where they showed her returning to her former teacher to prepare for this role, and she sang for about 30 seconds.(the 60 min. segment was about the teacher not Rossum.) Phantom Of The Opera was moving, and I wasn't prepared either for the emotions it stirred for some of the characters (ei. The Phantom). I think it would have been ten times better seen live, and this movie only made me want more and more to someday get the chance.:D
