Few things are more deterministic than kiddie genres, and therefore few
things less interesting.
One of the things I notice in these, going back before John Hughes, is
how the world of kids is divided up. Here there are 5 or six types,
depending on how you count. Its extremely important that you recognize
these are the right types in order for all else to work.
What's new or seems new are two character types. One is the black
kid, who other than a jive number, plays a type that is more deeply
human than racial. Its a notable evolution.
The other is that the "rich girl" is not only sympathetic without
changing, but she's lovely. To play what I think are supposed to be 12
year olds, they chose a darling 16 year old. She looks a lot like Anna
Popplewell, that 20 year old playing a 14 year old in Narnia 2. Its the
same general type as Scarlett Johansonn: full lips and full cheeks.
Also Ann Hathaway.
I do not think this is a trivial evolution. It seems that we are well
into an era where women's and girls' screen faces are meant to
communicate with lips only rather than full faces, or eyes as it once
was. Renee Zellweger and Julia Roberts are probably the first big names
who practice this style of acting exclusively. I'm not sure what it
means. And I'm not sure what it means to merge this ideal with the
supposedly spoiled rich girl. But it seems significant, a significant
reshuffling of archetypes.
It accompanies a more obvious shift. These are all kids from some sort
of dysfunctional family. The usual style would be to have parents. If
you were missing one, it was because they died. Then the parents could
be virtually absent by simply being too dumb to matter. Its more
theatrical to show absence by having partial absence. So this all seems
significant, even though the movie, well its a waste.

Hello today I will be reviewing Toy Story 3 the movie. Toy Story 3 is the last movie in the Toy Story series. It is about when Andy goes off to college and all of his toys get trapped in a daycare called "Sunyside," which turns out nice in the first place but then turns into a prison for the toys. Can the toys escape and get home to Andy saftleey before he gets to college? You will have to find out and see for yourself. I thought this movie was pretty good but no the best in the Toy story series. The reasons being the lack of adventure and new places for the toys to discovery like Toy Story 2. Overall if you are a big Toy Story fan or just like movies, despite the lack of adventure, this movie is a must see for the whole family to enjoy..
VERY GOOD MOVIE!.
This ius soo good mivie.
Silly Christmas diversion
Hey, I've seen this film before it's called "The Breakfast Club." No,
wait, that film was actually clever and funny. This rehash of every
kid-left-alone movie has incredibly cute children, but very little
laughs - and even with a schmaltzy ending - very little heart.
Five kids from different parts of the country, normal kid Spencer
(Dyllan Christopher), weakling Charlie (Tyler James'Williams), fat boy
Timothy (Brett Kelly), spoiled princess Grace (Gina Mantenga) and
tomboy Grace (Quinn Shephard), find themselves together at a Chicago
Put together in a dungeon-like basement for kids traveling without
parents, they soon escape and make an effort to find Spencer's little
sister, Katherine (Dominique Saldana).
This takes place as grumpy security manager (comedian Lewis Black) and
his three idiot guards (former Kids in the Hall players Kevin McDonald,
Bruce McCulloch and Mark McKinney) pursue the indifferent and
At least Black, whose acerbic tirades on "The Daily Show" can be
hilarious; and his well-received books and stand-up specials draw much
attention, is funnier here than he was in "Man of the Year." All the
while, we are treated to unfunny sequences featuring Spencer and
Katherine's moronic, tree-hugging dad, whose vegetable oil-burning
vehicle explodes while he is driving to pick them up. Luckily, a
chainsaw-toting redneck cretin provides the guy with a new Hummer for
the rest of the trip.
Still, this devolves into another "the kids are really smart while the
adults are idiots who end up completely defeated and befuddled in the
end" kind of movies. That was all right in "Home Alone" but it doesn't
really work when you care nothing about any of these young characters.
A sappy conclusion, featuring a reformed Black and the arrival of a
deadbeat father, along with everyone getting a new girl/boyfriend
(except the fat kid, because we know fat people in Hollywood films do
not deserve any sort of happiness), adds to the overall stupidity.
Saw several critics on the Internet Movie Data Base that actually gave
10 stars to this picture. Maybe "Unaccompanied Minors" is just as good
as "From Here To Eternity," "On the Waterfront," "The Godfather," "The
Grapes of Wrath," "Lawrence of Arabia," "West Side Story" and "One Flew
Over the Cuckoo's Nest" to these people, but I'm afraid I'll just have
to drop the bar a star or two..
