Following the disaster of trying to see City of Ember on Friday, Moonlet and I tried again Sunday. This is what we got:
That really is about as exciting as 99% of the movie got. The action scene at the end lasts about ten seconds. This folks, is NOT what you want to take a fidgety five year old boy to see. He asked questions and changed seats all through the movie trying to keep himself occupied while the movie just drug on from one boring scene to the next. It has a lot of adult issues and fairly complicated plot angles. This just doesn’t do anything for a pre-teen, and needless to say, if the kid’s not happy at a kid movie, neither is the parent.
Skip it. Take your chances on High School Musical 3, it’s better. As an adult, you won’t enjoy either to any degree. However, at least with the latter, the kid will be occupied for 90 minutes or so which to me is worth the matinee ticket price.

Zombieland is all that I expected it to be. This movie had to have been written especially for Woodie Harrelson. He honestly seems to enjoy this role too much. Now, based on the trailers on th...

I liked this one. I really did. Some movies move well from child to adult, this is not one of those. This is purely child stuff. It's light-hearted, pleasant, fun. It's creative, and a littl...

The Green Hornet is bad.
The Green Hornet is a movie made for Will Ferrell, but Will Ferrell's not in it. It's a movie that thinks sexual harassment in the workplace is comedic f...
