What is there to say about Seth Rogen and James Franco’s new movie? There was an extensive back and forth over the release of the film. Between Sony hacks, Cinema back outs, and Obama’s condemnation of Sony’s initial decision to pull down the film entirely, a lot has happened since the November announcement. At the end of the day, the controversy has stirred up enthusiasm in all camps over this rather unworthy film.

The most recent and final addition to “The Hobbit” is the greatest one yet, in that it brings with it the end to Jackson’s uninspired drivel. “The Unexpected Journey” was a bad start to a highly anticipated trek back into the Lord of the Rings universe. Featuring twelve cardboard dwarves with less character than their cousins in “Snow White,” audiences spend more than half the “Journey” watching flashbacks. In the “Desolation of Smaug,” we depart from the source material and ruin the fantasy world that was once so consistent.

“Big Hero Six” is an alarmingly cute and enjoyable movie with a focus on inspiring kids to seek higher education in STEM, particularly robotics. The protagonist is a 13-year-old and 14 minutes into the movie, he goes from wanting to be a delinquent who bets of fights, to aspiring to follow in his brother's footsteps and go to "nerd school," otherwise known as college. This movie name-drops science babble like it's going out of style.
