Call it a guilty pleasure if you will, but we love this movie. Casey has a secret passion for ice skating. But she has never pursued it because her feminist mother is constantly pushing the importance of academics and getting into Harvard while also dissing the sport, saying it causes regression for woman. But Casey finally decides to see what she can do when her physics project puts her right in the middle of competitive skating. This movie is just fun. We see Casey discover who she is and who she wants to be. She really pushes herself to stand up for and follow her dreams. Who can’t get behind a girl like that? If you haven’t seen this movie, we strongly suggest that you do.
Well hello, Kate Winslet. This movie is instantly better because you are in it. A kid in modern day falls through a crack during an “earthquake” at his ball game and is transported to the days of King Arthur. Merlin has brought him there to help King Arthur become a great King for the people like he once was. The movie was OK enough but pretty cheesy. It is one that kids may enjoy but not so much the adults. I am fine with checking it out once but don’t need to again.
