Review:

So happy to finally see a good movie. The last two were so bad I was starting to get depressed.

It’s been a while since I’ve read the books and I’ve heard that they changed some things, but I thought that they got the tone perfect. I was properly sad by the time it ended and wished, yet again, that I owned the books so I could read the ending. Though there’s a ton of even more sad stuff to come.

Great addition to the series and really looking to the last installment.

5/5

Review:

I really enjoyed these books and while I thought the first movie was good it just didn’t have the same excitement for me that the book had. This movie, I thought, was much better. As soon as it was over I wanted to watch the next movie. Since I couldn’t I wanted to read the next book.

I haven’t seen any of these movies in theaters but if I can I might try and see the next one.

4/5
