Movie Reviews

Since I’ve been in Kentucky, I have seen a lot of movies. It is a lot easier to grab a Redbox here with the extra help, and I’ve been able to go to the theater while my parents stayed with Eva. Here’s what I thought:

We Bought a Zoo

Loved it. I love Matt Damon and I love that he’s playing the dad in movies now. It was such a sweet story and refreshing to see something whole-heartedly uplifting.


I liked it but it isn’t my favorite Pixar film. I don’t know about you, but I just hold Pixar up on a pedistool and expect everything from them to be amazing, because it usually is. And it really was entertaining, but I just wasn’t in love with the story plus the plot was rather bland. I did cry a couple times because it made me think that one day my little baby might not love me. That will be the WTOML.

The Vow

Wow. I held off on watching this because I knew it would make me sad, especially being away from T.J. I cried a LOT and was still so sad in the end! But Rachel McAdams did a fabulous job (obviously) and Channing wasn’t too shabby himself, surprisingly. I loved it and this is now going to be one of my go-to-chick-flick-I-want-to-eat-ice-cream-and-cry movies.

New Years Eve

Guys. This was so good! How come nobody told me about it or recommended it to me? I could have watched a movie on each separate person. Plus, since I just visited NY, it was so fun seeing the city!


I have to admit, when I saw the preview I thought, “Why go to all the trouble to save three whales?” But I had a HUGE change of heart and pretty much fell in love with that little whale family. And man, wasn’t  John Krasinski great? I think I might have to buy this one.

A Little Bit of Heaven

Welp. This one I do not recommend. First of all, I had to fast forward several parts because they were kind of crude. Second of all, I cried a lot. Not like in The Vow, Brave, or The Miracle. They were full out hard cries and it was not pretty. I think I was so emotional because it’s about a woman with cancer and that is just too sad for me to watch a movie about. I kept thinking about my friends and grandparents who have/had cancer and pretty much lost it over and over.


So, there you have it. I promise I have done more than watch TV since I’ve been in Kentucky, I just had to take advantage of this extra time to myself!

Now… I want to hear what YOU have to say about these movies!

    I agree with you on Brave! It was a pretty film and everything, but the story line was so…been-there-done-that? I felt like it wasn’t innovative or even very girl-power (considering they made a big deal about a female Pixar lead), and we were sadly disappointed!
