McFarland USA

Hey guys I’m back!!! I’m sorry I missed my Blog-Aversary for 2 years :( but I’ve been so busy. Now this is my first review of the year, and I’m glad it is!!! I don’t know why not a lot of people go see Disney’s based on true story sports movies, but some of them are really good like this one. It takes place in 1987. When football coach Jim White gets fired at a high school, he gets a job as PE teacher and assistant football coach in McFarland, California, a very poor and mainly Mexican town. When he meets 7 kids in his class who are fast runners, he decides to start a cross-country team. Overall this is a great movie with humor and lots of heart. I would not suggest taking younger kids to this. Also this movie is kinda long and they could have left out some parts that weren’t too necessary to the plot. See it!!

Into the Woods

Now I had high expectations for this because I was in a local theatre’s production of this, and I enjoyed the movie a lot! Now this was originally an English play that was really popular in England that came to Broadway. It’s about all these fairy tale characters who go “Into the Woods” to get their wishes, but instead, their wishes turn into nightmares. There is Cinderella, Jack and the beanstalk, Rapunzel, and the Baker and his Wife. I was realy surprised by the part of the cast who never been in a musical role before and the people from Broadway. People who are not familiar with the story will be surprised. And hope you will enjoy it. See It!                                                                  Taryn

Night at the Museum 3

I realy enjoyed this movie. I was not fan of the first one but I liked the 2nd one and I think this is the best one. Larry Daily and the gang are back in the third installment of the franchise. When the magical tablet starts to lose its power, they have to go to London to find the exhibit that made the tablet to save the museum. The cast is all great, but my favorite character is the British security guard. She is just so funny. I also like the 2 mini figures from the other movies. This is, in my opinion, the best in the franchise because the story is so funny and heartfelt. So see it.

Big Hero 6

This movie is amazing!!! It takes place in a fictional town called San Fransokyo (a town mixture of San Francisco and Tokyo). When a robotics prodigy, Tadashi Hamada, shows his brother Hiro his college that has cool robotics and kids of his age, he is determined to get in. Hiro gets into the prestigious school, but the night of his presentation, there is a fire and Tadashi dies. After that Hiro teams up Baymax (Tadashi’s invention). They meet a villain who stole Hiro’s invention. So with help from fellow college students and friends Go Go Tamago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Fred and Baymax, they bulid their own super gears and powers based on their talents and try to stop him.  It’s a roller coaster ride of action, humor and emotions.I love Baymax but I would like to see some more of the rest of the team. On the other hand, it has a stellar voice cast and great storytelling, it is a movie for everyone. Don’t forget to stick around for the after-credits scene. See It! Also you should check out Beyond the Trailer’s Big Hero 6 fan reaction on Youtube–I’m in it!!

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Wow! This movie will have you on the edge on the your seat with all the action and very bad things that happen.The story starts off with the day before the awful one. Alexander has had a bad day and his family had a great day. The next day the family’s day heads south fast. I enjoyed this. It was very entertaining with a realy good ending. The movie would not have worked without this amazing cast that brought the emotion and laughter that is nothing that the title says.See it!

Dolphin Tale 2

I did not know what to expect after I heard mixed reviews but I enjoyed it. I loved the first one. The plot focuses on the extraordanary dolphin with a prostheic tail Winter. When Winter’s best friend Panama dies of old age.Winter falls into a depression. So Sawyer and friends try to help her. I personally did not understand why Winter was depressed even though Sawyer was there, and the movie did not realy focus on their realtionship unlike the first one. Overall a good film. And I can’t believe that they made a sequel to a true story that was also true. See it!!!

Guardians of the Galaxy

First off, this is the first Marvel movie I have ever seen, and I’m glad it is!!  It’s a movie for every kind of movie lover. Whether you like action or humor and even emotion this is the movie to see. It starts on earth with Peter Quill (aka Star Lord) as a kid (I think age 8) after his mom dies from cancer, he tries to run away but gets abducted by a alien named Yondu who raises him from then on. Years later, he tries to steel a orb he knows nothing about and ends up in jail. There, he meets Gamora, Rocket, Groot and Drax. They team up to save the galaxy from Ronan the Accuser. There is a lot of action and mild language, so I don;t suggest bringing little ones. When I first saw the trailer I thought this was gonna be great and it was. It is among my top 5 of the year so far. So see it. :) Taryn
