Rating 5 out of 5: logos-for-web-siteslogos-for-web-siteslogos-for-web-siteslogos-for-web-siteslogos-for-web-sites

This movie is about Luke Skywalker, Leia Oragana, Han Solo,  Chewbacca, Lando Calrasian, General Akbar, the Ewoks, and the X-Wing Pilot, who must battle the Empire, Darth Vader, Darth Sidious, and Scout Troopers and Storm Troopers. Secrets are revealed.  This movie concludes the Star Wars action-packed, romance, awesomest, fantasy, sci-fi thiller saga.

My favorite character is Luke Skywalker because I like his green lightsaber and his duel with Darth Vader at the end.  My favorite part is when Luke fights Darth Vader because I like the action and the music.

Ghostbusters (Flack’s Review)

Posted on | November 10, 2009 | 1 Comment

The movie is about three people who work together and fight ghosts in New York City. And as they get more famous and face bigger ghosts, they get a new Ghostbuster to help them. The city is about to be destroyed when a business person (Dr. Peck) sets free all the ghosts and they attack the city. Dr. Peck wants Dr. Venkman arrested. Now it’s up to the Ghostbusters to save the city.

My favorite part of the movie is when the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man comes because I think it is funny a big marshmallow person comes to attack the Ghostbusters.

My favorite character is Dr. Raymond Stantz, played by Dan Aykroyd because he is a funny Ghostbuster. I think it is funny when he picks the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man to destroy them.

TRIVIA: There will be a Ghostbusters 3 movie in 2012.

Flack’s Rating: 5 out of 5

This movie is about Remy, a rat who wants to be a chef but he’s a rat. When he gets separated from the rat colony and finds out he’s in Paris he gets a chance to cook.

My favorite part in the movie is when all the rats cook together because I like how they organize into different groups so they can work together to make “Ratatouille” and save the restaurant.

My Favorite character is the the rat Emile, Remy’s brother and friend. I like Emile because I think he’s funny and sometimes helps Remy. Emile is funny when he eats.http://disney-clipart.com/Ratatouille/jpg/Emile.jpg

TRIVIA:

1. This movie won an oscar and had the most nominations for any animated film ever.

2. Jan Pinkava, the co-director of Ratattouille had the original idea for this movie. And she directed the PIXAR short Geri’s Game.

Flack’s Rating: 5 out of 5

PIXAR’s A Bug’s Life (Flack’s Review)

Posted on | October 26, 2009 | 3 Comments

HeimlichThis movie is about Flik, an ant who makes inventions but nobody likes them. He and the other ants are forced to get food for the grasshoppers. When the grasshoppers come for food and Flik knocks over a pile of the food, the grasshoppers get mad. The ant colony orders Flik to go to the city so he won’t mess up the food anymore. When Flik goes to the city, he sees a group of circus bugs (not knowing they are circus bugs). He thinks they are warrior bugs because he sees them “acting” out Robin Hood. He wants the warrior bugs to fight the grasshoppers. He brings them back to ant Island with him.

I thought the movie was funny at the end when Heimlich, the caterpillar, got wings but the other bugs had to lift him up because he wasn’t really a butterfly, just a caterpillar with wings.

My favorite character is Heimlich because he is funny. Trivia from Pixar Wiki: Heimlich is based on Eric Carle’s hungry caterpillar.

Flack’s Rating: 4 out of 5
