My screening was during a UK holiday and so the screening was full of parents and children. Half of them were toddlers and the rest were actual 0-1 babies. I saw maybe one child that would have remembered seeing this movie.
Parents take their kids to shit movies because they are using them as a babysitter whilst they play on their phones. It was sad to see this film reduced to a light and noise distraction for the under 5s.
This has been the case in almost even U-12A film I've seen in the last few years; people are almost exclusively bringing babies to these movies.
Brad, I can't believe you didn't like this movie. You are an unpatriotic piece of..........just kidding!!!!!!
I can see why you didn't like this movie. I will admit, some of the goofy moments felt out of place, and the title intro a couple minutes in was annoying (For me, it wasn't much of a problem). Having said that, I'm a sucker for this kind of movie.
World War 2 history is something I love very much, and having worked with a bunch of veterans from that time (One of which is a dear friend/adopted grandmother), I've learned a lot about that piece of history. Granted, this ruins my impartiality, but I sincerely believe that Monuments Men was good. Maybe a little flawed, but a good movie regardless.
Saw The Monuments Men today. Tip to people trying to quit smoking: DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE. So many triggers in this movie, many of the scenes even revolve around smoking and their's nary a frame without a couple burning embers in it. Movie was ok besides that, liked some of the gags, but didn't laugh at any of them. Lack of characterization was a major bummer for me.
I hope The LEGO Movie made it on one of their personal top 5 movies list for 2014. It certainly did for me!
