This movie is about a young man, Rudi, who dreams of climbing the highest peak in the area, The Citadel (The Matterhorn in real life). The Citadel has claimed many lives but no one has ever made it to the top. Will Rudi be able to do it? This movie turned out to be more interesting than we thought it was going to be. We became invested in seeing if Rudi was going to make it to the top and if so, how. The scenery is beautiful as it was filmed on location in Switzerland. While we wouldn’t say it is one that everyone must go out and find a way to watch right now, we do think it is one to check out if you ever come across it. We think it was a good watch at least once but we think the young kids will get bored.
After spending three years filming African wildlife, Disney made this documentary. “A true Life adventure!” And you know what? It was a true life adventure! It was really interesting. The film not only shows you the life of a lion and his pride, but also lots of other animals in the African safari such as elephants, giraffes, warthogs, hippos, and cheetahs. The movie keeps your interests by moving on to different animals but also ties together how they all live and survive in the same world. We think animal-loving kids would love this documentary and think it will hold their attention. We definitely think people should give this one a try. It was a pleasant surprise.
A man inherits a hotel and in the Rocky Mountains and hastily quits his job and moves his family there. Upon arrival, they discover the hotel is a wreck. They decide to fix it up and open a ski resort on the newly acquired land knowing nothing about the sport. This movie actually was a pleasant surprise. We quite enjoyed it. It contained a lot of entertaining slapstick comedy, a good story and never felt like it was dragging. We laughed and were entertained. It is just a feel good, fun to watch, movie.
Based off a true story, Union soldiers volunteer to steal a Confederate train to take back to Union territory. Along the journey, the men try to destroy the Confederate tracks and telegraph wires. This movie was a pleasant surprise for us. We weren’t expecting to like it as much as we did. It was interesting because it was based on true events and we weren’t really sure how it was going to end. Sure we know that the North beats the South in the Civil War, but this movie was purely about this one incident and the brave men who did it. And props to the one Confederate solider who kept on the stolen train’s tail. He was one determined dude. We really weren’t sure if they were going to be successful or not. Even if you do know what the outcome it, I still think it is a good watch.We are glad we have seen it and wouldn’t object to watching it again if that time ever came. While we think the young kids may get bored, unless they love trains, adults can enjoy this one.
