- 6.The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneyThis shouldn't have been a trilogy, first of all. The Hobbit is a 300 page book that was turned into a cash cow for the studio, and they didn't know when to stop milking it. Now, they made some good movies out of it, but they should've just made one great movie. This is most obviously demonstrated by the first Hobbit movie, whose dinner party scene get longer each time you watch it. This movie includes some great aspects, but too many poor aspects as well. • 7/10
- 5.The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five ArmiesAnother example of why this trilogy should've been one movie, The Battle of the Five Armies seems much better when viewed in conjunction with the others. I believe this feels the most like a Lord of the Rings movie due the the epic battle sequences, however that mainly what this movie is made up of. It's difficult to chose a between this and The Desolation of Smaug, but I'll give the latter the prize for best Hobbit movie. • 7/10
- 4.The Hobbit: The Desolation of SmaugBeing the middle chapter, this film contains the best aspects from the first and third movies in this trilogy, and makes for confident, adventurous spectacle. Although still unnecessarily prolonged in some sequences, this movie is probably the most enjoyable and fun out of the entire Hobbit trilogy. • 8/10
Two years ago today, the How I Met Your Mother series finale aired, resulting in huge backlash from fans. Having recently finished the series on Netflix, here's a (long) list of reasons why it ruins the show.
- •Barney and Robin were perfect for each otherAfter years of character development and an entire freaking season leading up to their wedding, the finale then decides to flash forward three years, and have them get divorced. One of the worst things about this is that all of season nine showed Barney and Robin realizing problems in their relationship, and then getting over them. Even leading up to their wedding, when Barney vows to always be honest to her. This season showed how great they were for each other, and made Ted realize that too.
- •Barney and Robin's divorceSeason nine saw Barney and Robin working through all of their problems and discovering their love for each other meant more than anything else. Then, flashed forward showing they decided to get divorced purely because Barney was getting tired of traveling across the world, and Robin not being around. Oh, and because he can't run his internet blog. Worst of all, Robin seems to be totally okay with this. We never even see the conversation where they decide on divorce, it feels like a cop-out.
- •SunriseThe finale completely ruins this season nine episode, in which, after nine years, Ted finally lets go of Robin. In a, somewhat over-the-top, display, Ted decides it's finally time to let go, and he does. This allows for Barney and Robin to get married without Ted moping around in sadness, and makes it possible for Ted to met Tracy at the bus stop after the wedding. Then in 2030, many bad writing decisions later, Ted goes and asks Robin out again in the last scene of the series.
I'm not sure about the definition of childhood, but these are (for the most part) shows for children. That I thoroughly enjoy. So, here it is.
- •Curious GeorgeOne of my favorite things ever. Sadly, I could still sit down and binge watch seasons of this.
- •The BackyardigansLike 32% of the reason I want to have kids is so I can watch this again without being judged. Okay, that's a little much, but you get my point.
- •Tweety BirdI'm not sure if this was the name of the show, or if this was even a separate show from Looney Tunes, but Tweety and Sylvester get their own mention.
Okay so after my Pixar Movies Worst to Best list was published, this list was requested. As I mentioned in that list, Monsters University has multiple flaws. Now don't get me wrong, I love this movie very, very much and will watch it anytime; but there are some things that stand out. After watching it the first time something just felt... off.
- •OriginalityMost, if not all, Pixar films take a small, thoughtful idea and let it blossom into something so much bigger. One issue with this movie is that I feel it moves backwards, instead of forwards. Clearly, it's a prequel so that's something it's supposed to do, but I'll get into that later. The entire idea of the movie isn't something we haven't seen before: an underdog team who rises up against the odds, and, ultimately, fails. I do love the ending, but I feel Pixar is capable of so much more.
- •PrequelNow, listing as a flaw doesn't seem right, I know, but it's certainly something that holds the film back. In deciding to be a prequel, all of the events that take place in the original, haven't happened yet, so children are still considered to be diseased et cetera. One of the brilliant things about Monsters Inc. was its relations between Boo and Mike & Sully, having this film take place in a pre-Boo world takes that option away. It just couldn't be as deep and original without the children.
- •Randall BoggsRandall's transition from innocent, confused monster to the menace we know in Monsters Inc. never really sold me. He gets involved with the wrong people, and upset after "losing" to Sully, but that's pretty much it. After seeing the person, excuse me, monster he was at the start of the film, this path to evil never really felt real to me.
- •Agree? Disagree? Let me know why or why not, below.
This was not easy, and to be totally honest I may change the order of some of these films later, and add onto it.
- 17.Cars 2This is a very not good movie. Not good.
- 16.RatatouilleI didn't really enjoy this movie, something about the rodents.
- 15.A Bug's LifeI didn't really enjoy this movie, something about the bugs.
Already listed the five I would want, now here's the five celebrities I would NOT want to be on my dodgeball team.
- 1.Ben StillerWe all know how that turned out last time…
- 2.Brendon UrieHave you see the Victorious music video? No thank you.
- 3.Steve BuscemiSomething just says, "No. You shouldn't have Buscemi on your dodgeball team." and so I will listen to that something.
My list would probably end up looking just like @imben 's, but I'll make sure that doesn't happen. Here goes, if you can dodge a wrench...
- 1.Chris EvansOr Pratt or Hemsworth, but I'll go with Evans. #TeamCap for the win.
- 2.Scarlett JohanssonBlack Widow. Lucy. Nice.
- 3.Matt DamonYeah this is an absolute certainty.
- •A BackyardagainI don't care which one.
Suggested by @imben. Well for one I'm assuming that there's going to be a television or phone or iPad or something to watch these shows one or else this list would be completely different. Also, I think the title should say "have" instead of "bring" because it sounds like I'm voluntarily getting trapped on this island. Maybe I am, who knows?
- 6.Arrow (Flashbacks Seasons 1 & 2)Okay, I know Ben said five shows, so I'm counting this as a random bonus. Only the flashbacks, from only season one and two. Considering he's trapped on an island for a good portion of time, I might learn a few things.
- 5.LostSeems like this might be useful for something... Just a hunch.
- 4.DaredevilDepending on where this island is, and who or what may be on it, knowing a few martial arts moves is never a bad thing. Also, would be a nice reminder of my faith.
- •ZookeeperThis was probably the longest lasting one, I don't know why and I'm kind of bothered that I aimed to become that.
- •ArtistThis was brief kinda. Not sure why, I enjoy stylizing words and such more now. That sounds odd so I'll stop typing here.
- •NBA PlayerHa. Ha ha. Yeah, wanted to be on the Celtics. That'd be pretty neat- and well paying.
- •Can't really think of anything else I wanted to be... I'll add more if I do though.
