Journey to the center of the earth

Journey to the center of the earth is a film about a man who in discovering the notes of his lost brother makes it to the center of the earth!

First converted to film in 1959, Journey to the center of the earth never fails to amaze the audience. Its simple script is comprehensible to children and the digital animation is excellent. It's a wonderfully entertaining movie for children and adults alike.

Life of adventure still goes on even after the loss of a loved one. Why? Because there will always be others to take care of the ones left behind. And that is what it means to be family.

Rating: 3.5/5

Mamma Mia!

Mamma Mia! is film about a young girl who invited 3 men to her wedding to find out who among them was his Dad.

Some of the scenes seemed to drag while Meryl Streep seemed old to play the character of the mother of Sophie. The characters seemed to lack enough motivation for playing their roles. However, the location is excellent to bring the musical out from Broadway plus, the songs of ABBA are all-time classics.

The issue of fatherhood was replaced by the question on the importance of getting married. Eventually, it is love that matters, and real love knows no time.

Rating: 3.5/5

Kung Fu Panda

Kung Fu Panda is a film about an unlikely candidate destined to be the Dragon Warrior out to protect the temple from its dreaded nemesis.

There is something extra-special about the animation done on the Panda and how cuddly and lovable he turned out to be. He becomes human to be exact, a fete that is hard to do on animation. The thread of the story is excellent; the characterizations are precise. The harmony of all cinematic elements give justice to the entire film, a sure plus for the audience's appreciation.

The values this film espouse are amazing. The treasure of things to be learned inspire the audience. That is why Kung Fu Panda can be a household item. More than the skills and techniques of Kung Fu are the human values inside that really perk up the human spirit - love, acceptance, and faith among others.

Rating: 5/5
