Ender's Game

Today I stumbled upon this interesting little trailer. Let's watch it first.

This trailer first grabbed my attention with the cast! I'm sorry, but if Harrison Ford is in a movie I am nearly ALWAYS going to watch it. Even besides him there is quite the talented cast. Ben Kingsley and Asa Butterfield are working together again which is fantastic! Asa, as you may remember, was Hugo in 'Hugo'. Those two were a great pair. I don't know if they will interact much in this movie but I'm glad all the same.

That was just the hook for me though. After seeing the trailer, I admit, I'm intrigued! Aliens, outer space, some sort of galactic war; it sounds good to me! As far as I can tell Ford starts training children as soldiers because they are unpredictable to the aliens. A little dark, but I can deal with it. I know it was a very popular book series which means that they should have plenty of material. Frankly, I just have a good feeling about this movie. I hope I'm right!

I have since seen 'Ender's Game' and written a review, here.

Kumea (Koo-may) was a little girl. She was the age of ten and always wore pigtails clasped with a bright blue ribbon. Every morning Kumea woke up early, with the sun, and helped her mother tend to the rice farm in beautiful Japan. This farm year was different than all the others. The rice paddy was a sickly brownish yellow instead of bright lush green, and at night she would hear her parents talking about how the emperor would take their farm away if the weather didn’t change.

One morning Kumea was gathering water from the creek when she thought she heard movement in the forest behind her house. Kumea took a little cup, filled it with water, and carried it over to a small yellow flower behind a shed. Slowly she poured water on the flower like she had done for weeks when her mother wasn’t looking.

Just then a large cart approached the farmhouse with armored soldiers in it. Kumea peeked around the corner of the shed and watched the soldiers walk to her Father. The soldiers and her fa…

'B' and 'B'

'Brave' and 'Bernie'! Two movies that are similar in no way. Except, of course, they both start with 'B' and they have both been nominated for awards this year. As I'm sure you can guess, I am very excited about awards season. I am developing a mild case of Oscar frenzy. I want my favorites to win! In preparation, naturally, I have been watching a lot of the movies I have seen pop up at the awards shows that have already happened. I would have gotten around to them eventually, but the timing is too good!

First is 'Brave'! I have wanted to see this movie since the moment I heard is was going to exist. I love Disney-Pixar and their movies together. I'm a child at heart and I'm not sorry! Netflix took its sweet time getting 'Brave' sent to my mailbox but I finally saw it.  Boy was it more then I ever expected! I hadn't really looked into it that much. I saw the words Pixar and I knew I would watch it so there wasn't any reason to…
