This movie isn't a new one and maybe most of you have seen it by now, but after seeing "Monsters vs. Aliens" I didn't care to see this movie. (No offense to anyone who liked Monsters vs. Aliens"- I didn't think it was all that funny). So when Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs came out I had low expectations. But it was SOOOO FUNNY! I loved it! Bill Hader does the voice for the main character and he does such a great job. I was surprised by the creativity of this movie and how fun they made it. It is a little long and there's one part at the end that is pretty "out there" but overall, it was a good movie!
I heard so many good things about this movie. And it really was a cute story... except I didn't really like the type of bad guy the went with. I know in that culture, black magic is really popular, but do I really want my kids to see that? Voodoo stuff and creepy spirits? It was a little too "dark" for me on that end, but I really liked everything else about the movie. It was a fun love story and ended well. So with saying that I give it 3 stars!
There's a lot to say about this movie. Todd and I just went and saw this on Saturday. If you don't know what its about, it about a 14 year old girl who get murdered and how she waits in the "in between" (between heaven and earth) trying to reach back to her family and help them solver her case. It gets a little disturbing because she's the narrator and you know from the very beginning that she is going to be murdered, so when that time comes, your just hoping it'll change. Its definitely a movie that keeps you interested the whole way through and has some parts that put you on the edge of your seat, but it leaves you feeling a little... disturbed, because there are real people out there like that! It also makes you think a lot about death. But I thought the main girl did a GREAT job at acting her part. The ending doesn't leave you with a lot of closure but it still ends well. It took me a while to decided how much i liked this movie and if I would recommend it. So I'll just say this, if you find stories like this interesting and you like different perspective movies, then you should go see it. I know I'd see it again.
I give it 4 stars!
So there you have it. We still want to see Sherlock Holmes and Avatar, so stay in tune for that.
Thanks for stopping by! :)
