I have developed a new movie rating system.
It's brilliant actually.
It shall be based on something very technical, insightful, intelligent, and full proof.
Yes, it shall be based on the number of minutes I sleep while viewing it.
The higher the minutes the worse it is. If I didn't nap at all, it will be called an EYE-OPENER, as in I was able to keep my eyes open the entire time.
Now let's start with an example. If you all recall, I loathed (my exact words)Wall-E. I slept for 30 minutes during that movie. That's about as bad as it can get people. It's hard to sleep sitting up much past 30 minutes. Unofortunately, it has now be resurrected on DVD just in time for the holidays. Oh joy.
RATING: 30 minutes
This past weekend we went to the movies with the kids as we've been anticipating the return of the gang from Madagascar. We have seen the first one
a jillion a couple of times. It was "crackalacking" funny. It had memorable moments. It had memorable lines. It had a great story line. It was an EYE-OPENER. However, I am sad to report that the sequel is only average. Both my husband and I napped for about 10 minutes during this one. The premise is still funny and the original cast is back. But I can't remember much of the storyline because it was all over the place. Something about a giraffe having a crush on a hippo and a penguin who falls in love with a bobble head. Yeah. Whatever. It was a disappointment.
RATING: 10 Minutes
A movie we saw this summer that is out on DVD now, is Kung Fu Panda. Sadly, I had alot of trouble keeping my eyes open during this one as well and slumbered for 15 glorious minutes. I remember something about noodles and a panda who is adopted by a ...a...umm, oh geez, I can't remember....
Rating: 15 Minutes
Now for the good stuff. Here is a movie that I would see over and over and over because it is really, really entertaining. The music and dancing are fabulous. The storyline is a little bit mature for an 8 and 6 year old who cannot imagine leaving elementary school let alone graduating from high school as the gang from East High are about to do. But overall, it is wholesome, fun, and hands down the best of the three High School Musical movies. I will be purchasing this for
myself Little Red Riding Hood.
Another movie that I must own for
myself is Kitt Kittredge: An American Girl. This movie is excellent. It has a great message, is suspenseful, well written, and well acted. I highly recommend it.
So, there you have it. My movie rating system. I just can't go wrong with it. Come back next week to see my rating for a little ole vampire movie we've all been anticipating for months.
