The Pirate Fairy
(2014) Mae Whitman, Christina Hendricks, Tom Hiddleston, Lucy Liu, Raven-Symoné, Megan Hilty, Pamela Adlon, Angela Bartys, and Jim Cummings


My son put this movie on the other day, while I was dozing on the couch. I had fully intended to go to bed once he was settled in with his movie, but I was surprisingly pulled in to the show. I say surprisingly because I haven’t seen any of the Tinkerbell movies, I hated her in Peter Pan, so I never felt compelled to see a film revolving around her. Thankfully, everything that was awful about her is mercifully absent from the films (well, this one anyways), and I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. The story is interesting, the animation lovely, and all the voice acting was on point. It even made me laugh out loud once or twice. All in all, it’s quite enjoyable. I give it 7.5/10, fine family fun!

This movie is currently streaming on Netflix. Enjoy! đŸ™‚

Film Review Frozen

So I finally got around to seeing this film. And while it wasn’t as good as all the hype made it seem (there was no way anything could live up to that kind of hype), it was still very good, with a few laugh out loud moments, a few stupidly romantic moments, and a few heart-breaking moments. Seriously, a few scenes were so heart-breaking that my husband and I were surprised that they were in a children’s film. We watched the film together with our 4 year old son, and he sat through the whole thing, not looking away from the screen for even a second. He hardly ever does that, even to his favourite shows, so that just go to show how well Disney succeeded with this one. I give it an 8.5/10. Fine family fun! đŸ™‚

This movie isn’t currently on Netflix, but just give it a little more time and I’m sure it’ll pop on sometime soon. In the meantime, have a song…
