Movie Queue: 'The Last Mimzy' and 'Pathfinder'

Starring: Karl Urban, Moon Bloodgood, Russell Means

A thousand years in the past, a young Norse boy is left behind when his clan shipwrecks on the Eastern shores. Despite his lineage, he's raised by the very Indians his kinsmen want to destroy. Years later, when they come back, he wages his own personal war against them.

It was no '300', that's for sure. That movie rocked and any type of war-like movies that are released after that will never compare. Truthfully, this movie kind of reminded me of "The Last of the Mohicans", but Daniel Day-Lewis was the better Eye Candy with his long hair and muscular physique displayed in faux animal suede chaps.

It started out slow, with the action picking up when his kinsmen came back to finish the job they started. Geez, this is tough. I don't have much else to say except I wasn't all that enthused.

Review: 2 Snaps Down

Starring Timothy Hutton, Joely Richardson, Rhiannon Leigh Wrynn
Two children discover a mysterious box that contains some strange devices they think are toys. As the children play with these "toys," they begin to display higher and higher intelligence levels. They soon realize that the toys were sent from the future and they were sent for a purpose. I got a chance to see this movie for free (Yay for the AMC Movie Watcher Card) and I really liked it.
I'm not ashamed to admit that while I am a teeny-bopper flick watcher, I will also see certain kiddy flicks too. And, depending on what animated flick Disney puts out, I might check that out as well. This movie had shades of "Labryinth" and "E.T." Movies where kids are the heroes and plots that make you really believe that we cannot be the only beings in the universe. The main focus was on the children, specifically the little girl, Emma. Within the box of "toys" (read: geode-type rocks) she finds a cute Peter Rabbit type of stuffed animal named Mimzy. It teaches her things, mainly about why she was sent there, but the situation quickly spins out of control when the new toys cause a city-wide power outage...and the government tracks the source to their house.
Kids will definitely like this movie. Even if you don't have kids, this is still a cute movie.
