Following my rather poor review of the Lego movie (and angering cousin Laurette with that negative review in the process),  Uncle Frank cheered me up by letting me watch Vampire Academy.

My review: Well, its no Twilight, but this movie beats the pants off Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Southern Vampire Mysteries/True Blood by leaps and bounds (and that’s my evil personal opinion, which can never be disputed no matter what). But my main issue is that they try to make the girl strong, and I have an issue with “strong” female characters.

Other than that, if you’re 15 and older, DON’T watch the Lego movie. Watch this movie instead; you’ll be happier for it.

Just because I’m currently in Russia doesn’t mean that I’m not telling you about the latest movies and such. (Well, the opening ceremony is happening right now, but don’t worry, you can watch it later)

Anyway, I have previewed the Lego movie (no thanks to Uncle Frank’s tablet, and all I can say is that it was a total letdown. There was nothing remotely entertaining about the movie at all and I wonder if this is the future of animated movies.

If animated movies are all disappointments, then I won’t be letting my kids watch them, no matter how much they whine.

That’s an hour and a half of my flight to Sochi that I’m never getting back.
