The House with a Clock in Its Walls

Released 09/21/2018                              Rated: PG When I first saw the trailer I was like “What is this? This looks awesome!” A kid’s movie, but awesome nonetheless. I’d never heard of the book before, and didn’t even realize it was one until … Continue reading

The Santa Clause

Released: 11/11/1994                              Rated: PG The definition of a family movie is one that is entertaining across multiple generations, and this one hits the nail on the head. This is another one of my favorites, and if you somehow haven’t seen … Continue reading

Practical Magic

Released 10/16/1998                              Rated: PG-13 This movie has been labeled a romantic comedy, but I have not tagged it as such because I do not believe that label is justified. A rom-com, as some people like to shorten it, is where … Continue reading

Harry Potter 7.1-2

The Deathly Hallows Part 1 Released 11/19/2010                              Rated PG-13 Very few points I wish they’d done with Part 1. The first is the fact that things important to the story here at the end have either been altered or cut … Continue reading

Bewitched

Released 6/24/2005                              Rated: PG-13 I’m not the biggest Will Ferrell fan. I feel like he oversells his comedy, and it definitely shows here. I find him ten times funnier in his SNL skits than in the majority of his

Frozen

Released 11/27/13                              Rated: PG Disney did it again. This movie was better than I expected it to be. Pretty much the only thing I saw on this was the teaser trailer of the snowman and the reindeer trying to cross … Continue reading

Now You See Me

Released 5/31/13                              Rated: PG-13 I was so disappointed in this movie. The trailer made it look so much better! (Big surprise, I guess.) I wasn’t really all that impressed. I felt no reason for me to figure it out or … Continue reading

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Released 12/14/12                              Rated: PG-13 I personally don’t think this film is up to par with the previous trilogy. If you’re a purist, you’re probably going to have issues with it. A few things were changed and moved around, as always, … Continue reading

Rise of the Guardians

Released 11/21/12                              Rated: PG Okay, everybody either loved it, or hated it to no end, so I’m going to have to call this one a see-it-for-yourself movie. Personally, I loved it. I thought it was great, it was creative, it … Continue reading
