Movie Review- Disney Car 2

Like all other families this summer we have been waiting for Cars 2 to come out. We went to see it last weekend at the drive in. My youngest LOVES anything with wheels and I figured he would enjoy this movie as much as the first one. Not so much.

Don't get me wrong it was a "good" movie but like all the other cartoons that have been coming out lately the storyline just does not fit the target group. As an adult I understand when I watch a kids movie that it is just that. I don't expect it to be little "adult saying" in the movie. I have watched so many movies lately that frankly tick me off due to the little adult things they seem to think they need in the movie.

Cars 2 was an ok movie but not as good as the first one which had a great story line and lesson. The story line in Cars 2 was a little to much for the target group. It was about secret spies and an oil politics plot. My youngest just did not understand the oil politics. I also did not like the shooting and exploding of the characters.
The characters from the first aside from Mater and Lightning McQueen really did not have a big part in the second movie which makes me sad because that is usually what make the second movie good is bring back the character from the first one.
On a positive note the races in the Cars 2 were very entertaining and my kids loved them. There were more races in this one and they were exciting to watch.
I can not say do not go see this one but don't expect it to be as good as the first Cars.

This review is totally my opinion of the movie and does not intend to replace your own opinion.

Movie Review- Mr Popper's Penguins

One of the summer best family movies starring Jim Carrey. Our family of four went to see this movie last night at our local drive in. I truly enjoyed it. I am always scared when going to the movies when taking the kids. The movie industry doesn't seem to care what they expose our kids to. I was very happy with this movie as far as the content being child friendly.

Movie Synopsis
Adventure-loving house painter Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey) contends with the problem of having too many penguins in director Mark S. Waters' adaptation of author Richard Atwater's beloved children's book. Shortly after penning a letter to a team of Arctic explorers, Mr. Popper is surprised to receive a penguin in the mail. Later, after making his mischievous new pal a cozy new home in the freezer, the hapless Mr. Popper comes into possession of a playful female penguin as well. Before long Mr. Popper finds himself surrounded by a growing family of the flightless birds, and begins training them to perform in a traveling show dubbed Popper's Performing Penguins. With each new town the show travels to, pandemonium is quick to follow. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

If you get a chance to go out and see this movie I think you will be happily surprised and your kids will love the cute penguins.

For all you homeschool readers, there is a book called Mr Popper's Penguins and a free study unit.
