Opposites attract

I watched two very different movies the other day, here are my reviews.


Walking with Dinosaurs.

Great Special effects.  After about 15 minutes I thought I was a REAL nature documentary in the Discovery Channel or something.  You follow an exquisitive young dinosaur through the dangerous time period of days gone by.  He and a group of friends must overcome migration, predators, and 'Love'.  SPOILER at the end, I was nearly in tears, when you watch it, you will know what part I am talking about.  I bought it, and suggest you do to!

300: Rise of an Empire

Loved it, Loved it, LOVED IT!  It was better than the original.  I am a sucker for period movies (fact or fiction) and I really loved the blood and gore!  The strong female leads in this movie were fantastic, the fight scenes were AWESOME.  Of course, seeing the fit guys in this movie almost wants me to work out... almost!  I already own 300, and cant wait til this one is available.

Mr. Peabody upsets the Box Office

Over the weekend there was an upset at the Box Office.  Mr. Peabody and Sherman brought in over $21 Million to take home first place.  They were up against some new action flicks that I didn't pay attention to.

I did go see this with my 2 little brothers.  They loved it, as an older adult (29), I found it a bit boring at first, but it did pick up in the middle.  I can say that this movie does slyly teach kids some interesting facts about different eras in history, just like it did as a short in "Rocky and Bullwinkle"
It has great animation, good 3D effects.  Bottom line, if you have children to entertain or just want to relive part of your childhood, pick Mr. Peabody and Sherman!  You won't be disappointed!

P.S.  It has a heartwarming ending at the end!
