Movie Reviews

We have seen quite a few movies lately and I thought that I would give you my humble take on them. I also asked Joseph his thoughts on the movie and will type those in green. My man is really a man if few words!

Juno - When we rented this movie I had no idea what to expect (and honestly didn't have high hopes!), but was pleasantly surprised. I thought this movie was charming, thought provoking, funny (there are some great lines!) but definitely not for teens or kids. I wasn't crazy about the ending, but I won't tell you why in case you haven't seen it. I also didn't like all the relativism. If you have seen it, I'd love to know what you thought of this movie.
I thought it was good.

27 Dresses - This wasn't a good movie at all. It was super boring and brainless. The acting was terrible and this movie is definitely not going to find a place in my all time favorite date movies!

Untraceable - I hate movies like this! It scared me and made my stomach hurt. Way too much violence and way too visual for me.
Exciting, but not a feel good movie.

Kung Fu Panda - I thought that this movie was adorable and funny. We took the kids last night and Caleb loved it! Luke, on the other hand, was so scared that Joseph had to leave the theatre with him. There were a few scary moments and Luke gets scared easily. We went with out good friends, for a family double date, and their kids are younger than Luke and they did fine.
I thought it was good.

I loved Juno! It was definitely a different kind of movie, but it was totally entertaining. I sort of liked the ending, though.

You're right, 27 Dresses was boring. I haven't seen the other, but it sounds like Kung Fu Panda may scare my 5-year old. Thanks for the reviews.
