CAMP ROCK 2: THE FINAL JAM (2010)

   

The sequel to Camp Rock was a lot more fun to watch than the original.  Each musical number involved most of the cast, had more entertaining and energetic dances, and were there to move the story along rather than just having a kid here and there performing at the musical camp to show off their talents. We were more interested in the story in this one as well. Yes, this Camp Rock rocked much more than the first.

CAMP ROCK (2008)

   

A Disney Channel original that isn’t horrible, but isn’t great. The movie moved slowly and the musical numbers were just to have kids perform, so most of songs stopped the story just to watch this kid sing while we and the cast in the movie just sat and watched. It made you feel like the movie just wants you to observe and never actually feel a part of it all.

THE PIRATE FAIRY (2014)

   

What? Another TInker Bell movie?? Yep! But this one was really fun.  What made it more amusing to watch was the fact that the six main fairies were together on their adventure the entire time. When they are together and interacting with each other, there is more humor, more fun and more of a chance to get to see each character’s personalities develop. Also, this movie showed the start of some beloved Peter Pan characters which got us very excited.  Will they make a movie that shows where/how/when Tinker Bell meets Peter Pan? We hope so.

SECRET OF THE WINGS (2012)

   

Yes, another TInker Bell movie…and we are not even done with them. There will be more and to that we say “yes!”  We move along in seasons in this movie as Tinker Bell discovers the winter side of Pixie Hollow along with the winter fairies who live there.  Another fun adventure, just not as fun as the ones previous.

Homeward Bound II (1996)

   

The three pets are back and once again get themselves lost and have to find their way home. There are animals that will make you laugh again, but we were ready for it to be over after a while. Note to Shadow, Chance and Sassy: Stay where your owners put you and you won’t get lost!

Quints (2000)

   

Babies times five. Lots of baby cries and baby poops.  How do people survive having so many babies at once? Kudos to all who have. I was going a bit crazy listening to the cries in the movie, let alone in real life. The movie is pretty cheesy. The main character constantly stops the story to tell about whatever or tease you about something, which works sometimes but others you just wanted to get on with it.

Brother Bear (2003)

   

Let’s all just bear hug this movie because it is great. Koda is the best. Did you get his name? It’s Koda, say it with me Ko-da.  If you have seen the movie, you will get that…if not, then what are you waiting for?? This truly is an amazing story, beautifully animated and a bunch of great characters to love. Check it out now!

Tuck Everlasting (2002)

   

I remember my sister challenging all the girls in the family to read this book before the movie came out. and she would take those who read it to see it in the theater. And if I remember correctly that got a whole lot of young girls to read at least one book. Well done sister.

This movie has it’s charms. We love Rory, I mean Alexis Bledel, and the story holds your interest. I still think of Carrie every time I see Sissy Spacek in anything. That movie will forever delightfully haunt me. If you are a sucker for those teenage true love movies then you will most likely enjoy this movie, but other than that there isn’t anything too notable about this that makes it stand out as a must see.
