"The Water Horse": Good, but Too Scary for the Littlest.

Hi it’s me, Hazel again. I am here to tell you about “The Water Horse.” First thing I want to tell you is the movie it’s self is a little scary. It is an old Scottish legend about a Water Horse. Water Horses are make believe. It’s just a legend. But I think little kids shouldn’t watch it. I just don’t think so. Oh and there are some loud war scenes but nobody dies.

Now I will tell you what the movie was about. This boy finds this egg and a Water Horse hatches out of it and they become best friends. When the sister finds out about it she’s in the bathroom and she screams! Then at the end when the mom found out, she’s like, “Oh my gosh!” It is a really sad tale, but it is also a nice tale.

And there were cannons to shoot the submarines. There was a boat with a light on it. And there was a gun on it to shoot the water horse. They were trying to get the water horse and there was a big net to catch the submarines. And at the end the boy never saw the water horse again. It was a very happy story. Bye. --Harry.

  • The Chipmunks: Funny.

    I liked the movie “Alvin and the Chipmunks” because Dave put the Chipmunks in the garbage can. Dave’s alarm was the song from “Sponge Bob Square Pants,” which was funny.

    I liked it because near the end the uncle grabbed a box and drove in a car to France and when he opened the box all he realized was the chipmunks in the box were toy chipmunks that spoke French. That was funny.

    At the beginning, when they got to Dave’s house, Dave heard them singing and he asked “You can sing?” and then Simon said “That’s not singing” then they started singing the song “Funky Town” and they started a funny dance.

    When Simon looked into the cupboard he found lots of food and he said “Hello gorgeous” and started dumping the food everywhere.

    Dave saw things move and he didn’t know that something was inside the things until he saw the chipmunks. After he opened his eyes, Dave saw squirrels and they were talking and then he closed his eyes again and he said “I’m not talking to talking squirrels” and then they said “Nice one, dude. We’re talking chipmunks, not squirrels." --Cole, 6, and Leo, 4.

    Review: "Pirates Who Don't Do Anything"

    Hi my name is Hazel. I and my family went to a movie called the “Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything.” I am here to tell you what it was about. Well it had this song called “Rock Monster” instead of “Rock Lobster.” I thought it was really funny and good. When it was done while I and my mom, Cathy, were in the bathroom I said, “We should rent or buy this movie .” I mean the movie I’m talking about. Let me give you a tip now. I think you should rent the movie when it comes out, or see it at the movie theatre, take my advice. It’s a Veggie Tales movie for kids.

    I’ll tell you what it’s about. It’s about a show but it turns into a real big mess. Well, you see, this prince and princess they got captured by the king’s brother. So she got a help-seeker that her father had made, it’s just a little device. So she told the help-seeker that they really needed big help, so she told it, “We need heroes. Go out and find some.” And it brought back the three people.

    It was really funny because it was a rowboat, and this guy said, “Oh, this is just good. Now we will go and tell our girlfriends the good news and the bad news. I lost my job as a cabin boy in the show, but the good news is that I got a rowboat!” That was really funny, as well as the cheese curls. They were little biting ones.

    I like the part where the guy who was just pretending to fight the people off the ship. The sea monster that was electric was just pretending to be a real monster. It was mechanical. The part where the guy said “The blue ball’s beeping” because he thought it was time to go home, it was funny. It was funny because he thought it was time to go home. –Harry.
