Escape to Witch Mountain

This was my first time watching this movie in its entirety. I have watched the Disney Channel 90's version quite a few times in my youth so I thought they were the same but there were a lot of differences. In this one, the twins already knew each other and grew up together with a family before being orphaned and sent to live at an orphanage. People just seem to accept that these kids have special powers pretty easily in this movie.

This movie was a cross between a Documentary and Drama where the actor played the role of himself. It shows his life and determination to get to the Olympics in 1996. It was interesting to see how he lived in Ethiopia, running miles to school each day and hoping to make it in time and then running home to help work with his family.

Oh, I absolutely love this movie! It needs to make a comeback, now! It was so good. 

Enchanted starts off as an animated movie with a princess, prince, and evil queen/stepmother. As part of an evil scheme, the princess is sent off to the real world where she stays with a man and his daughter and makes rodents clean their apartment. It is all very funny and musical and wonderful.

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.
