Review for Thor: The Dark World

Here is a review. A bit overdue, but here nonetheless!

Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, language and some suggestive content

When Thor is faced with an enemy that seems undefeatable, he sets out on a quest--his most perilous and personal one yet. One that will bring him to Jane Foster and one that will force him to sacrifice everything to save mankind.

Despite what most people say, I loved this movie! I thought that it was very intense, was well done and had tons of humor. I thought the visual effects were amazing and liked all of the twists and turns. This one made me like Loki even more than in The Avengers, as before when I first was introduced to him in Thor, I didn't like him very well. That changes in Thor 2. The humorous scenes between him and Thor were absolutely hilarious!

Consensus: Thor 2 kept my attention from beginning to end. The visual effects are breathtaking, transporting you in between multiple worlds. Not short on humor, sure to make you laugh way more than once.

Review for The Croods

Here is a review for a movie that I loved!

Rated PG for some scary action

 Nicholas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds lead the voice cast.

The Croods tells the story of the world's first family road trip. When their cave is destroyed, the Crood family must embark on a comedy adventure into strange and spectacular territory in search of a new home. As if patriarch Grug (Cage) didn't already have enough to handle, it goes from bad to worse when they encounter an imaginative nomad named Guy (Reynolds.) With Guy's help the Croods conquer their fear of the outside world and discover that they have exactly what it takes to survive - each other.

This movie I have to say, is hands down, one of my new most favorite movies! I didn't expect to actually laugh as hard as I did! (I usually don't laugh too hard at animated movies unless they're really funny.) The Crood family was hilarious and it was a cool adventure story. Very touching at the end.

Consensus: The Croods is a colorful, fun movie the family can have fun watching. Filled with adventure and plenty of laughs to go around, it is sure to entertain the young and young at heart.

Review for Monsters University (2013)

Here is another review!

Rated G

This movie goes back in time, before Mike and Sulley were best friends. It shows how they go from hating each one another, to overcoming their differences and becoming the best of friends.

I have to admit I liked this movie a lot better than I thought I would. It's a good family movie, and it's funny. It was cool to see Mike and Sulley meet for the first time, and how they were before they got their jobs as "scarers."

Consensus: Monsters U is a fun movie that the whole family can enjoy.  It shows that you can accomplish your dreams if you work hard enough, and even more so when you have friends there beside you.
