Two Fun Films

Gentle Readers, lets wrap the week !!!  Not very much going on around here.  Our car "issues" were fixed, I guess money does buy happiness!!  I think we'll hold on to the old clunky thing for a few more months - and start looking to replace it towards the end of Summer.   At 16 years old I think its time to get a newer model!!

I thought today I would mention a couple of films I have seen recently that are really entertaining...

First up is "Brave" - 2012 - from Pixar Animation Studios, this computer generated animated film was good to really good throughout!!  Good story and good visuals.

Although I have read some not so good reviews, I enjoyed just about every minute of it - and would totally recommend it!!  I loved the witch, I usually like the odd characters, and the witch is lots of fun!!  At 93 minutes it is not long, so give it a try.

The other film is "Hotel Transylvania" - 2012 - from Sony Pictures Animation - another computer generated animated feature, that was also a fun flick.  Fun story and an interesting take on famous monsters from film and literature.

Both films suffer from computer animation, and are not nearly as good as a classicly animated film, but these are the times, CGI is less expensive to produce than hand drawn.  Aside from that defect, I enjoyed them both and would encourage you to give them a look.

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again.  Have a super weekend!!

Take care,

Wow, I hope our car can hold out as long as yours! Ours is like 12 or 13 years old -- and we need it to hold out for a while longer. lol! I was slightly disappointed in Brave, but I still loved it. Haven't seen Hotel Transylvania, but I hope to. Have a good weekend!

We watched "Brave" for the 1st time a couple of weeks ago. Dan & I liked it, but it was too intense for our three-year-old granddaughter. She was worried about the "mommy bear" if you know what I mean!

My husband and I went to see Hotel Transylvania and both loved it! We also now go around "I do not say Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!" LOL It's one I'm hoping to add to my collection.
