Thursday Things -- Movie Roundup
The girls and I have been picking away at our movie list for 101 Things in 202 Thursdays. During the last four weeks, we've watched The Wizard of Oz (#3), E.T. (#16), Ratatouille (#29), Monsters, Inc. (#39), and Kung Fu Panda (#90). We also started on our documentary list and viewed Spellbound (#46) and Stop Making Sense (#80).
Here are our (extremely brief) reviews of each of the above:
Wizard of Oz -- Loved the songs and dancing. Wish the "The Dainty China Country" chapter had been included (read the book!) Three out of three thumbs.
E.T. -- A bit frightening in the beginning, but then funny and sweet. Three out of three thumbs.
Ratatouille -- Witty, great story, excellent animation. What's not to like? Three out of three thumbs.
Monsters, Inc. -- Great concept, fun to watch. Roz steals the show. Three out of three thumbs.
Kung Fu Panda -- Cute and entertaining, but not particularly witty or intelligent. Two and a half thumbs.
Spellbound -- The girls loved watching a documentary about kids. They liked each of the contestants and found the concept of a spelling bee very interesting. Three out of three thumbs.
Stop Making Sense -- The girls enjoyed this concert film for about half an hour, then they got bored. I'm a Talking Heads fan, so I loved it. One out of three thumbs.
Told you this was going to be quick. I'm off to bed now -- see you in the morning for the Friday Wrap.
