This one was probably the biggest surprise of the year for me so far. I really loved the set pieces and the backgrounds for being as dreamy as the fairytale itself. I loved that they added little bits of story to make the fairytale transform into a 100 minute movie. Even Nicholas Hoult (Jack) gave a wayyyy better performance in this film than he did in Warm Bodies. Stanley Tucci was also amazing (as usual) playing the bad guy. The Giants were also amazing looking and not too overdone by the CGI like most films can do. Some of the things i didn’t like was the dragging at times in between the bigger parts of the films. I know it’s customary for most films to do this, but i just wish they would cut those parts all together. I am ok with an 80 minute movie as long as it’s mostly entertaining. I also didn’t like the way the giants had to respect who ever carried the throne. THEY ARE GIANTS!!! They’re stronger, bigger and they follow no rules. Other than that though, it was a great film. I definitely recommend it if you liked stories like this growing up.
