January 3, 2014 (Day 3 of the 365 Movies in 365 Days Challenge)

Three days into the new year. Three days into the 365 Day Movie Challenge. And today marks another successful day of movies, along with shoveling 10 inches of snow. I hate the winter.

On to the movies....

The first two days of the year, I chose to watch the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Well, the first three anyway. Today, movie number 4 in the challenge is the fourth installment of the series:

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

On Stranger Tides stars Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow as he goes on a quest to find the Fountain of Youth. Some familiar faces appear: Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa and Kevin McNally as Gibbs. Some new faces join the franchise however. Ian McShane portrays notorious pirate Blackbeard; Penelope Cruz plays Blackbeard's daughter Angelica Teach; Sam Claflin plays Philip and Astrid Berges-Frisbey is the mermaid Syrena. Keith Richards, from the Rolling Stones, reprises his role as Captain Teague from At World's End.

After shoveling snow (still have more to do as my car is surrounded by a huge snow drift), I decided to take in a second movie. This movie fits the theme of the day: snow, ice, freezing cold. The movie is:

Disney's Frozen

Frozen is Disney's take on the fairy tale The Snow Queen. Talent lending their voice to the movie are Kristen Bell as Anna; Idina Menzel as Elsa; Jonathan Groff as Kristoff; Josh Gad as Olof; and Santino Fontana as Hans.

Tomorrow, I will recap the movies watched this week. Remember, if anyone has any suggestions as to which movies I should watch, feel free to contact me on Twitter, Facebook, via email, or post under the comments section right here on this blog!

UPDATE: 5 out of 365 watched so far in 2014. Only 360 movies to go.
