During the school holidays I decided I wanted to ride my bike as much as possible and to try and see as many films as possible. I have made a lot of films since I was 6 and I really enjoy learning about how they are made. My dad always tells me that by watching more films I will learn more about making them.
This Summer's Films so far...
I have quite a big DVD collection but there were quite a few that were in the cinema this summer that I wanted to see. Transformers 3 was really good, but I didn't like the 3D version as it hurt my eyes. I really enjoyed it though; Bumble Bee was my favourite car and I really enjoyed watching the men fly across the tall buildings. My dad helped me to understand how they did that bit and I read about it on the Internet. I also went to see Harry Potter, but I decided not to watch that in 3D so that my eyes wouldn't hurt! I really, really enjoyed Harry Potter!
The Smurfs... A bit ancient?
Last week I decided to see The Smurfs. My mum says that they have been around since she was little, which is a very long time. It made me wonder if it was going to be any good, but looking at some trailers it looked like a modern film so I decided to go along and see it.
I went to see The Smurfs with my grandparents, to the normal Showcase cinema in Derby. I had some sweets and a drink, one of my favourite parts of going to the cinema - the treats! I don't want to give too much away, but I recommend that people go to the cinema to watch it.
Realistic Animation Vs Realistic Acting
My favourite part was when Gutsy showed his I 'heart' New York pants! My least favourite part was the bit where Gargamel was trying to kill The Smurfs. I didn't like that and thought it was really, really horrible. The animation was really clever. I have not yet learned about animation, but I understand it a little bit. The only bit I found a bit unbelievable was when the actors, who had been filmed, held the animated characters in their hands. It seemed a bit unnatural as if they were advertising the character on a fizzy pop advert! But the rest was really, really COOL! In fact it was fantastic.
The Smurfs were really cute and blue. They didn't look too old either considering my Mum used to watch them!
