Eloise at Christmastime


A sequel to Eloise at the Plaza and happening immediately after the first movie is Eloise at Christmastime. The young girl is at her antics again, meddling into the business of anyone and everyone at the Plaza hotel in New York City.

Eloise at the Plaza


This movie is great for kids who love Dennis the Menace and Home Alone and any type of movie where children meddle in other people's business. It is based off the book series "Eloise at the Plaza". 


My son and I definitely enjoyed it - there was a lot of giggling going on. I may have to check out the book series now!

Eight Below


The next movie on our list is Eight Below. It was a great movie inspired by a true story. There were these wonder huskies that were in the Antarctic surviving on their own as they waited for their owner to come back to them. The owner tried so hard to return but it was difficult. Paul Walker plays the owner, Jerry, which made the movie seem even sadder because he passed a few years ago. 


It was a good movie and I certainly recommend it if you are a dog lover or interested in the Antarctic.

Eddie's Million Dollar Cook Off



A DCOM about a boy who falls in love with cooking. It was definitely not a story I heard before and I ended up liking most of the movie.


Really, I was just annoyed with the dad. Everyone knows kids can be lame and tease each other for every little thing but the dad in this movie really bothered me when he wouldn't let his kid pursue his interests and made him feel so bad about it that he agreed to continue playing baseball for him. I am happy to say he does change his tune by the end. 

Now to make my husband watch some Food Network shows until he falls in love with cooking, too... .

Earth




Next up is a Disney Nature film called Earth. I just love these Disney Nature films!! I didn't think I would be into documentaries as much as I am finding with these ones. They are well done.

Dumbo


Can you believe that this is the first time I have ever seen this movie in its entirety? No, seriously!



This movie is a classic without princesses and one I recommend seeing!

There were a lot of movies that I watched alone since my boys are busy, but I still loved (almost) every minute of this challenge!

Here are my favorites of this year.


Favorite Live Action Movie: It comes down to Cinderella and Cool Runnings! I'm going to have to go with Cinderella
Favorite Animated Movie: It's between Cinderella (my childhood favorite), Cars, Bolt, and Big Hero 6. Winner is Big Hero 6. I just adore this movie and everything about it. 
Favorite Disney Channel Movie: Brink
Favorite Sequel: Cinderella 3
Least likely to ever watch again: 1 movie actually had half of a star, the lowest rating I ever gave! That means Don't Look Under the Bed, I will not be watching you ever again!

2016 was a roller coaster of a year. I know 2017 has a lot to bring in the movie world and I'm excited to get some more of these movies watched and rated! I will be switching up my layout again and seeing what works best for the challenge. Change is good!  I'm going to keep on going in alphabetical order because I love the variety it brings.
