Independence Day Resurgence – Review


It is thoroughly summer movie time. And I was really, really looking forward to this one. It did not disappoint.

30 before 30 – #29 Fantastic Mr. Fox


I remember hearing about Fantastic Mr. Fox, I even remember hearing that it was something worth checking out? But I couldn’t think of anyone who had actually seen it and I didn’t know what it was. Until I sat down to watch. I did not know George Clooney was in this movie until I was watching it. Speaking of George Clooney, how is it that even as a fox, a puppet fox at that, it is still so clear that that is George Clooney?

If you like unique story telling, make a point to see this one. It was fascinating and enjoyable and I wish I hadn’t waited so long to see it.

30 before 30- #27 The Nightmare Before Christmas


I cannot believe I did not think to put The Nightmare Before Christmas on my first version of the 30 before 30 list! As I near the end of the project I have a growing list titled ‘new things’ to try after I’ve finished the official 30 before 30. And to think, I was having trouble thinking of 30 things when I started.

I’ve been on The Nightmare Before Christmas version of the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland, and that was where most of what I knew about the story came from. The music was my favorite part, and I’m always in awe at stop motion, the sheer time and work that has to go into making these kind of movies. I really enjoyed this one. I now want to rewatch Corpse Bride and see which one I like better.
