Smurfs and Vampires

We saw The Smurfs today! It was so much better than I expected! I've been a Smurf fan for a very long time, and the trailers didn't exactly fill me with anticipation.  I was so pleasantly surprised.

Hank Azaria (Gargamel) was fantastic aaannnddd Anton Yelchin was Clumsy Smurf!

I think the only qualms I had with the movie was the lack of Vanity, Handy and Harmony Smurf and the fact that Grouchy Smurf seemed more like Sarcastic Smurf than Grouchy... But I think that was just George Lopez.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon of Smurfiness!

I seriously love Katy's dress.

I saw Fright Night (in 3D) on Friday. Oh wow. The Doctor and Charlie Bartlett on the same screen.

It was kinda crazy.
Peter's Russell Brand-ish type character was just hilarious.
 I'm not usually a big fan of horror/supernatural/thriller type movies, but this movie was so much fun! David Tennant was hilarious (as expected) and Anton was just fantastic as usual.
I have a feeling both of these movies will make their way into my DVD cabinet...
Have a good night!

  1. I had a friend who said the Smurfs movie looked like it would just be another version of Enchanted; was it?

  2. Eh... You can draw parallels. Animated people from a magical land ending up in NY... But other than that I wouldn't say there are many similarities. They weren't as focused on sticking to/ re-creating with an "edgy" twist the classic fairy tale. I think Smurfs was, oddly, less kiddie friendly than Enchanted.. Lots of ball jokes. It was weird.
