I know you have all been eagerly anticipating my movie reviews. I have a few to review, Sushi and cookie went camping with our church this last weekend and so I got a few redbox and there have also been a few I've seen in the theatres. So, here goes, starting with the one I know you have been waiting the most for
Barbie as the Island Princess- I let cakes pick a movie and this (surprise!) is the one she chose. It was a huge hit with cakes. I think she watched it about 5 times in an evening and the afternoon of the next day. It's basically barbie as tarzan, she gets shipwrecked on an island and can talk to animals, a prince rescues her from the island and they end up married. A real original plot but great for a 3 year old little girl.
The Forbidden Kingdom- I actually really liked this one. I took sushi because I knew he wanted to see it and I enjoyed myself! It was great, really fun, it didn't have ten minute long fight sequences, it had a plot that was fun, the characters actually grew and changed by the end of the movie. Well done.
Juno- One of my choices that I kept hearing great things about. While I didn't appreciate how crude it was sometimes and I didn't love the teenage swearing I think this was so well done. I think this captured all the emotions involved in teenage pregnancy as well as adoption. Having had a very small glimpse of infertility I could completely understand where the adoptive mother was coming from and I was so proud of Juno for making the hard choice to carry and do what was best for her baby. I loved the family dynamics of Juno's family and even though they were far from perfect they loved and supported each other so well. Sushi even liked this one. This one had me laughing and crying throughout the show. Highly recommend this movie.
Stardust- If you are a fantasy fan you will like this one. It involves a wall that separates two dimensions and what happens when their worlds cross. It was fun, you do need to be into fantasy to enjoy this though, otherwise I think you'll just think it's another stupid fanatasy show.
Indiana Jones and the crystal skull- SO FUN, you must be a fan of Indiana Jones though, it's pretty much more Indiana Jones. Nothing really plausable and far from the truth but just fun. If you don't like the original Indiana Jones you won't like this one. However, if you are a fan you will love this.
Well, that pretty much sums it up. Let me know whether you agree or disagree with my reviews. I still need to post pics of the new furniture that Uncle Sam paid for. Mabey tomorrow. Today the family is all getting new shoes. All our shoes have holes in them. I guess it's time.
