How To Train Your Dragon (2010)

Director:

Dean Deblois

Chris Sanders

Starring:

Jay Baruchel

Gerard Butler

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

America Ferrera

Plot:

A hapless young Viking who aspires to hunt dragons becomes the unlikely friend of a young dragon himself, and learns there may be more to the creatures than he assumed.

Review:

Vikings fighting dragons, this sounds really cool, but for whatever reason I just could not get into it. I liked the idea, but I just couldn’t get into this kids movie lol.

A boy Viking can’t bring himself to kill the dragons, ends up befriending them, and saves them all in the end.

I thought it was cool that he lost his foot in the end. I also liked that there were female Vikings fighting. Other than that, don’t really have much to say.

The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

Director:

Chris McKay

Starring:

Will Arnett

Michael Cera

Rosario Dawson

Plot:

A cooler-than-ever Bruce Wayne must deal with the usual suspects as they plan to rule Gotham City, while discovering that he has accidentally adopted a teenage orphan who wishes to become his sidekick.

Review:

This was definitely a Lego movie first. I found the humor fun at the beginning, but by the end of the movie it wore on me. It was just too many references and snide comments. I’m not sure how my daughter found it entertaining because of that, but she’s three and the dialog is probably the least of her concerns.

It was entertaining and sometimes fun but overall not something I need to see again.

Starring:

Auli’i Cravalho

Dwayne Johnson

Rachel House

Plot:

In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by the Demigod Maui reaches an impetuous Chieftain’s daughter’s island, she answers the Ocean’s call to seek out the Demigod to set things right.

Review:

So I did not get to see this in theaters, I look forward to the time when my daughter is old enough to sit through movies cause I would be fine with going to see all the cartoons. Until then Red Box is my friend.

Moana was a beautiful movie. I loved that she was able to save the day without needing to fall in love and without her parents having to die. I thought that was pretty awesome. I also really liked the music, though I don’t know how much of it I’ll be able to sing, we’ll see.

I’m actually kind of hoping that my husband gets this for our daughter for Easter. I might have to drop some hints about what Mommy thinks she might like. Though, honestly it didn’t hold her attention as much as I would have hoped.

Starring:

Amy Poehler

Bill Hader

Lewis Black

Plot:

After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school.

Review:

Wow that movie was darker than I expected it to be. I don’t consider that a negative it’s just an observation. I really don’t think most children would have picked up on it, though. It was more for the adults.

I found myself crying throughout the whole thing and really wished my daughter was awake so that I could hug her. I’m apparently hormonal right now lol

It was a cute movie, I thought the concept was cool, but I don’t think I need to own it. Definitely watch it if you haven’t, but at your own leisure.

Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure (2009)

Director:

Klay Hall

Starring:

Mae Whitman

Jesse McCartney

Jane Horrocks

Plot:

Tinker Bell journey far North of Never Land to patch things up with her friend Terence and restore a Pixie Dust Tree.

Review:

This is the second movie in the Tinker Bell franchise. It appears to happen shortly after the first, in case you were curious.

It will surprise no one that Tinker Bell has a temper, she’s a tiny fairy that fixes things, naturally she bottles a lot up. The point of this movie was for her to figure out how to control it and grow as an individual.

Since she’s one of the newest fairies and if given too much time will put all the others out of work she’s given a very important task. A task that requires her to create a scepter that holds the MOST IMPORTANT gemstone in Pixie Hollow. Naturally they give it to her while she works, and naturally she loses her shit on a friend that’s trying to help, so naturally the IRREPLACABLE moonstone is ruined.

Stuff happens; it takes her many, many opportunities to learn her lesson and who knows if it will stick. Since this is a Disney movie everything works out in the end and sadly she doesn’t get punished for her screw up. Sesame Street would have been on top of that shit, Papa Bear grounds Baby Bear for messing up and he only got ice cream on his shirt. Tinker Bell ruined the only means of creating pixie dust, so what if it all worked out in the end. Kids today are soft.
