Despicable Me

When a super villain named Gru - through strenuous efforts to steal back a weapon - discovers three orphans (Margo, Edith, and Agnes) who just might get the job done for him. To his initially discomfort, though, in order to complete his task he must adopt the tree girls. As they grow more reluctant to fulfill his order he considers abandoning them. But, as the movie goes on we can see that - though at one point it was tested - their love for each other grows and he soon becomes the father they never had.

I found this movie to be quite enjoyable. It had hilarious moments as well as sad. And even though at times it was predictable, even when I knew what was about to occur, it still came as a shock to me. That is a good quality to have in the movie. And of course Steve Carell gives it a certain flare. As well as having iCarly's Miranda Cosgrove. I must say I was nervous about the role of Margo was cast to her at first but she did surprise me and I think they couldn't have gotten a better actress to play Margo.

I think this is the perfect happy ending movie for a family to see together. You should be Ready2See this movie out on DVD!

Nine-year-old Matty Fitzwalter is being raised as a proper lady, to dance and embroider. But after her mother is murdered, her father teaches her to read, write, play chess and trains her in the art of falconry. Before long, she is hunting for food with her hawks, just as her best friend Fynn is hunting for his family. When she finds out that Fynn and his friends are also helping other poor families eat, she is determined to help her neighbors survive, even if it means hunting on forbidden land. They adopt code names and build treehouses, and soon Fynn is called Robin and Matty is known as Maid Marian. As Matty’s knack for falconry grows she discovers the magical ability to talk to her birds, and when a plot to overthrow King Richard is revealed, it is Matty who hatches a plan to steal the jewels for his ransom. But, all goes awry when Matty is captured by an eerie abbess and tortured so she would reveal the location of the rubies...

I found that this book was excellent in the beginning I really got into the characters. It was interesting from the very start - of course at first it was a bit difficult to understand what was going on. But, I did manage to figure it out not to far into the prologue. Now into the middle of the book everything was coming along nicely and it was a real mystery now. I was aching to know what was going to happen. But, I'm at the ending part of the book and things are starting to get a little confusing.

So apparently now Matty is able to switch bodies with her birds. I truly do understand that this was a fiction book but inside the Matty's world this was impossible yet she wasn't even slightly curious as to how this was so. Of course that was anything wrong it was just odd.

I'd say that this book was exciting and fun with the most interesting ending yet. You should be Ready2Read this book!

Living on her own struggling just to get some food Sintel discovers an injured baby dragon - Scales. As the days pass by Sintel and Scales bond. When on top of a building playing with Scales, much to Sintel's sadness, Scales is snatched by a fully grown dragon leaving Sintel in shock. Through her determination to get her best friend back she embarks on an epic journey. When she thinks all is lost she meets a hermit who gives her wise advice an she sets of once more to find her beloved companion. But once arriving she had not realized how much time had passed. Should she have gone?

I found that this movie being only fourteen minutes felt like a full movie. The plot - though dark - was amazing. The character's determination was nothing I had ever seen before. Sintel passed through scorching desserts and freezing ice lands just to rescue her dragon. But what was most impressing is how much depth was put into a movie created on the program Blender! It just goes to show you that as long as you put your heart into something you can make it happen. But I must warn people that this was the saddest movies I have ever seen. Overall, though , if you can fight back tears or can at least cry freely, please, be ready2see this movie!

(NOTE: Though I do strongly suggest that you support the creators - - if you are unable you can view the movie here:

The Chronicles of Narnia - Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Lucy and Edmund have been staying with their cousin - Eustace - during World War 1. While in their room, they take note of a painting which has a ship that doesn't belong there. When the painting starts leaking water they know it's a calling from Narnia. Soon the entire room is filled with water and when they arise at the surface their suspicions are true. Without them knowing, Lucy, Edmund, and Eustace are about to embark on an epic adventure.

I must say this movie was amazing! I am going to miss the Pevensie children though but this movie was a grand way to show their departure from Narnia. I think the best highlight about this movie was the way that they had to overcome their temptations. Desire of the eyes can lead one astray and this movie showed that. Also, it was very admirable seeing how Eustace changed his wrong ways. But, as for the rest of the movie, the plot was very - despite being obvious fiction - realistic. It was easy to follow and it was as if you were in every scene. A lot of people might be concerned about how much violence was in it though. While there were brief sword fights and some fist, compared to so called 'children's' movies now-a-days it's highly minimal. So i.e. it's nothing that you can't find in a cartoon. The graphics were decent but I'm not going to lie, I've seen better. Though, that was just my thought in the begining of the movie. Towards the middle and end it was amazing. Even though I did not see it in 3D I'm glad though because of how intense the movie is, 3D might make it too 'over the top' so to speak. I think this series so far has been the best movie series that I've ever seen and I think that we're all anxious for more to come our way!

You should definitely be ready2see this movie!

The Last Airbender - Shyamalan

Well, I must say I am a fan of the animated series so this movie was a huge disappointment to me and all other fans. The problem is - I'm not expecting perfect but - he didn't follow the storyline of the show. To be honest, he didn't even keep the same names! There were bits and pieces of attempts at recreations of episodes scattered everywhere. Anyone who didn't see the series would not understand this movie. He left things out and added things in. For instance, he purposely excluded two semi-main characters - Suki and Jet! It was an outrageous mess. Because of those two characters, the entire trilogy will crumble. The only good thing that came out of the movie were the effects! Just stick to the show... please. I wanted to RIP OUT my eyeballs! I will never buy the DVD!

So whatever you do, DON'T be ready2see this movie.

Wiki.answers or Wiki.stupid?

I've had nothing but bad experiences with Wiki.answer . com. First I received cyberbullying from one of the site's supervisors. I tried to ask what was wrong and he threatened to take my account away. He didn't even say for what! Again I tried to ask what was going on and he spiked my account! That's right, he suspended it! Do you know why he did all that? My religion! He doesn't like anybody's religion but his own as made clear by his messages to me. There is no need to get yourself rapped up0 in this nonsense. There's plenty of other sites where you can ask questions but never go to Wiki.answers . com! And on top of that, half of the answers are incorrect... 3/4 of it actually! Save yourself and NEVER be Ready2Read these answers.
