I am not a Movie Critic

I am just like everyone else. Some movies I love and some I hate.
We had a lazy friday night and watched 2 movies. The first one was Martian Child, which I liked and thought was a good, clean movie. (Don't you love it when you watch a PG movie that is actually interesting?)
The 2nd movie, to stay on the adoptive child, missing parents, storyline was August Rush.
I know that everyone on the planet has probably already seen this movie, but I have to put my 2 cents in about how much I liked it. This movie transported me into it. I loved the characters and the actors who played them. The music was beautiful and I really enjoyed the story. Movies are supposed to take you to another place and make you believe that what is unraveling before your eyes is really happening. I felt it. I know that there are going to be those out there who disagree with me, but I connected with this movie and really liked it. Plus, once again, I am happy when you can watch a feel good, PG movie and not have to say- well, I really liked it, except for this one part... etc. So, there is my movie review! If you haven't seen this, check it out and enjoy.

This is one of my favorite shots and a great scene.

Gotta love this jam session, even if they aren't really playing!

I've been wanting to see August Rush, so at least you're not the last person on the planet to watch it. I probably am though. I'm going to get it this week! Thanks for the review!
