Cookies are for closers. That line from the movie encapsulates perfectly what the experience of watching the film is like. There are some great throwback lines and sequences that will appeal to adults, while still having plenty of fun stuff for kids. My 6-yr old girl really liked it. The first half of the movie is much better than the second half where I think it tries to bite off more than it can chew. The animation is top shelf and I was impressed and admittedly mesmerized by a few action sequences on...

My daughter absolutely loved this and wants to see it again. For me, it felt like a really long 79 minutes but there were some really special moments. It's a nature documentary on five different species of animals living in China's wild. Some of the events filmed are truly remarkable and I could watch a Panda mom helicopter-parent her cub for hours. In watching nature documentaries there is a modern-day tendency to root for the prey, you don't really want to see the carnivores "win." But what happens if one baby antelope would feed a snow...

However you might deny it, there's a comforting nostalgia in games that remind us of toys. Memoir '44 and its box full of plastic tanks and soldiers. The link between the Star Wars games of now and the action figures of yesterday. And now Potion Explosion, which is full of marbles. In four bright primal colours. A shame, then, that they're cheap marbles, chipped and misshapen. To make the game work, they need to roll down chutes and sometimes the chunky ones get stuck. Nothing a quick tip won't fix, but annoying. The marbles sit in...

Well that was a bit of a hot mess. Overall, I would consider it a success in that I was pretty creeped out several times. My heart was racing and all that. It's just important not to think about the movie too much while watching it. One of the problems with putting smart people in space is that they then need to act smart all the time. Having a scary creature in space can be fun since most of the time the protagonists are trying to get away from it and escape. But here, we...

I thought this was pretty good but my six-year old girl didn't like it. Also, am I a total idiot for not knowing this was going to be a musical? How did I not know that going in? People are right that Be Our Guest was outstanding but some of these musical numbers (any of Beast's tunes mostly) really dragged. I thought Emma Watson was very good, but was that really her singing? I loved Gaston and Le Fif Fou. Beast was very good but his behaviour change was a little...
