WOOHOO! It's finally here! Hannah and Emma (and 20 of their closest friends) dared the midnight showing, Joe and I waited for the matinee $5 movie.
I've read all the books, loved this book (#7). The movie pretty much followed the book, I wasn't disappointed. I've read some critical reviews from FOX NEWS, don't listen to that critic. Obviously he didn't get into the whole Harry Potter life like our family does.
The movie was intense, not too bad because I liked it. It did have one slightly off seen where Ron is being showed lies to make him not do something (can't tell... have to see), Harry and Hermoine are kissing, no clothes, nothing shows but we all know there nothing can tell it's also a dream-like state shot.
It's a fun movie, if you don't like snake scary scenes, take someone with you that's seen it so they can tell you when to close your eyes. I'll go if you need someone.
Would I let a pre-teen go? Have they read the books? Then yes. Anyone under 7-8? probably not, too scary. Would I see it again, maybe. Buy it? I'll buy the complete set when it's out.
Out of 10 pairs of Dumbledoor bifocals, I'd give it a 9...... 1 off for the racey scene that didn't need to be there.

Interesting topic, Matt Damon stars, Clint Eastwood directs, Steven Spielberg produces...sounds like a winner? Don't waste your money.

It took about 75 minutes for this movie to start coming together, for for that first 75 minutes, your watching 3 movies, one is in subtitles. When it finally comes together and ends, Joe's quote "Well there's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back." My quote was "Do you think she could invest in a brush?" The co-star's hair was a mess by hairstyle choice.

We were all quite disappointed, knowing what we know with the subject matter, it could have been explored more. The title says HEREAFTER, but really that wasn't the subject or plot of the movie. They didn't treat the hereafter with the reverence that it deserves.

One F-Bomb was dropped, no nudity but there was a scene where the woman was dressing and you saw underwear (it was very pretty and lacy!)

If you decide to go and waste your $$, take some Kleenex, there are some sad scenes, because the movie does talk about death.

Out of 5 Disani Water bottle caps, I would give it a 1. 4 off because Clint Eastwood should have consulted with someone who knows a little more about the HEREAFTER.

Despicable Me!

Despicable Me.....
Appropriate for ALL ages. No inappropriate scenes. Well, there was one nudity part. It was where the Minions were sitting on the copier, photographing without pants on.
But, you've probably seen that on the commercials already.
Mr. Gru (played by the Office guy, Steve Carell) a sinister evil man who wants to top all other sinister villians and steal the moon. To do this, he adopts 3 little girls to help him break into another villian's home to steal a shrink gun.
These 3 little girls are soooo adorable, they soon turn his heart into mush and they have him wrapped around their little fingers. And they quickly win over the love of the minions, and the pointy toothed dog, Kyle.
The main character is extremely funny, but also pay attention to the other characters, they are just as funny, and can hold their own.
I really want to find the book about the three kittens, if anyone has seen it. Very cute!
I can see many one liners coming out of this movie!!
One of the many funny lines... "It's SO fluffy!" and the Unicorn song.
Would I see it again, YES! Would I rent it, YES! Would I buy it, YES!
Out of 10 Burger King Eclipse Cups, I would give this movie an 11.
It was that good.
