Random Views 2

A few more quick View reviews from the last little while.

I thought the first 2 movies were pretty good and my kidlets all seemed to enjoy them.  KnightJester even went through a phase of having to watch them daily.  Toy Story 3 on the other hand is not one my kidlets can all watch together.  There are too many negative and scary parts for the little ones…and I honestly don’t think the older ones would even want to watch it.  Very disappointing.


Had my doubts about this one, but because Netflix has taken the guilt away about returning movies unwatched, we decided to give it a try.  I was surprised to find that I kind of liked this movie.  It’s not one I have any great desire to add to our video library, but it’s not one that I’d ban either…which has been rare lately.


We love Backyardigans around here…though my older kidlets would probably deny that fact.  🙂  This is one of my particular favorites…but I’m kind of partial to dragons.


I don’t remember a lot about the first Tron…but if this is anything like it then I’m kind of glad.  The special effects were pretty good…but that’s about all I can say good about this one.  Way too much violence…particularly for a Disney.


My sis recommended this one…particularly because I have a house full of Scooby addicts.  Definitely very silly and simplistic and corny…but that’s Scooby.  🙂  It’ll be a while before my younger kidlets will be able to watch it…because the special effects of the ghosts is a little too real for them…but the rest of us had fun watching this one.  Can’t wait to see the second one…and hope they continue to make more.


Even though I didn’t think this one was too bad…a bit of bad acting and eye-rolling moments…I’m not happy with the reliance on violence to move the action forward.  There are so very few good sci-fi/fantasy movies out there…I was hoping to rate this one a little better.
