O.k. it’s not like all I ever do is sit around watching movies but, that’s what I’d like to do because writing reviews about them is cool. As you may know, we watched Mr. Magoriums Wonder Imporium and it was great, I think it’s another one of those movies that get over-looked like, oh, I don’t know. Anways, the kids seemed to enjoy it and it made sense to me so, I thought it’d make a good movie to review. It was crazy though because since everybody’s been working so hard it’s been even harder to get together to watch movies especially since that was all we used to do. Even though the kids kind of played around like they always do when they watch the movie before everyone else does it turned out to be a pretty good experience and it’s a movie I’ll definetely watch again. From what I’ve heard, most people liked it and thought it was an extremely good movie. I just kind of wonder what the kids really thought of it though, I mean have you ever watched a movie and completely disliked it but, for some odd reason your parents did? That is another one of the mysteries of this little planet we call Earth. Here’s a little sneek peek…..
The Jane Austen Bookclub February 23, 2008
What a great movie! That’s all I have to say.
This is one those movies that have a lasting impression.The ending was perfect and you’ve got to see it! Of all of the characters I kept getting the feeling that I knew them from somewhere and even after I looked them up Wikipedia I still didn’t know or really recognize but, a few of them. Anyways the cast was great and perfect for their roles and on top of that the story line was on point. This was one of those perfect movies that you can’t get enough of. It was the perfect blend of comedy, soap operas, and books (by Jane Austen of course) and I think that it definetely should if it hasn’t already, win an award for its originality,even though it has to compete with movies like Becoming Jane ,which I still haven’t seen. The thing that I absoluetly failed to mention is that it has an awesone soundtrack, including Feist! I absolutely loved this movie so, you got to see it!
I Think This Was In The Movie But, I’m Not Really Sure…..
Alvin And The Chipmunks The Movie January 31, 2008
Today, we went to see Alvin And The Chipmunks. That movie was the bomb! If you loved them before this movie makes you love them even more. It was so hilarious! The story line was great, they had the perfect cast (including Justin Long and Jesse McCartney)and the music was on point. Of course going to the movies with my family is always interesting. Take for instance when we went to see Shrek The Third the kids wasted a soda in my lap (good thing I was wearing a skirt and it dried before the movie was over). The extremely interesting thing is that Lolo managed to be eating popcorn (from where I don’t know), switch seats ten times, eat at a different table, and Justin also managed chill in his seat as if he was at home. Other than the usual craziness of going to eat at Flatiron and seeing a movie, we had a really great time.
