Have you noticed how many good movies came out over the winter holidays? I usually go to four or five movies over the course of a year (God save Netflix!), but I saw five (5!) over the break, surpassing the norm within a month. In case you haven't seen them, I thought I'd give a quick overview of each.
Megamind: Great for the 3 – 9 set. The phrase, "That was a bad idea," is hysterical to a three-year-old. Adults can sit through it without pain.
Tangled: A perfectly charming way to comb out the snarls. Kudos to Disney for finally featuring a prince equally as important as a princess.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I: I'm a Ravenclaw, and it's all TRUE.
The Black Swan: Odette. Odille. OH, No. Doesn't work as a ballet movie nor as a psychological thriller; save your money.
Narnia, The Dawn Treader: World's Best Sea Monster!
The King's Speech: Brits stuttering are better to listen to than American s not. Plus they can act, plus it has a good script.
Yet to come: Tron and True Grit
