In this movie you will be introduced to turtle eggs and you will see them crawl back to the ocean when they hatch. I think this is interesting for children of all ages to watch.
Go watch this movie and go as a family. We don't get many of these type movies so make it a family day and go. You won't be sorry.
Although some young children are upset that the series Hannah Montana has ended, I have to say I am glad. Miley Cyrus has so much more to offer to the entertainment business than her role as Hannah Montana. I think we will see her in many, many, more movies.
The first time ever I sat in a movie theater that was packed by teenage girls out numbering others by at least twenty to one. Having been around teens from divorced parents, I am in good position to spot the weak links in the movie's narrative. Miley Cyrus fitted perfectly in the role of a troubled and defiant teenage girl who was confrontational, insecure, and very pragmatic. She succeeded in invoking a sense of anger in her dad, brother, friend, as well as the viewer. Her growing up troubles must be attributed to her parent's divorce. Her parents are easy targets by virtue of their distance from her.
Spending the Summer in Georgia, her trivial altercation in New York added to her Father's being falsely accused by the locals for burning the church. Getting to know the local teens, she struggled to sort out the honest ones from not so honest. Like her father, she was set up by an encounter and accused for shoplifting she did not do. Now, both the daughter and father were stigmatized by the locals for being arsonists and shoplifters. As if divorce was not enough of strain on their internal affairs that they needed additional pain from outside.
The cold and rebellious daughter would make a full turn by a casual hint from a nurse that her father planned his quick death that summer in order to pass away with his children being around him. With her father's imminent death from lung cancer, the rebellious teen got a jolting effect that will bring her closer to the man she blamed for her misery. The tragic news about her father's terminal illness dwarfed her relentless blaming of the whole world for her growing up struggle.Read more ›
Film reviewers everywhere are raving about the film The Last Song inspired by the world renowned Nicholas Sparks book. Even though you may have read the book, you are in for a big surprise. The film has nothing on the book but just how the actresses/actors portray the film makes the film worth seeing. This film is one to sit down and watch with your family or even have a girl's night with your friend that you can ball your eyes out to.
There were many different memorable characters in the film. The protagonist of "The Last Song" is the character Miley Cyrus played named Ronnie Miller. Ronnie Miller is a troubled teen that is shipped off to live with her father for the summer. It has been years since she has seen her father and she is very mad that she needs to be there with him. Her father Steve Miller is thrilled to have his two children to stay with him for the summer but what no one knows is that he has cancer. The way they build up the relationship between Ronnie and Steve is amazing just because it really shows how family is really important and that holding a grudge against your dad for something he couldn't fix is just not a way to live. I loved how Ronnie really grew into this person that her brother Jonah could look up to. She started as this angry teenager and became a woman you could believe in. There was also her love interest Will Blakelee who was a really good character. He started as this volleyball jock who you really didn't want to like because you thought that he was just playing Ronnie but then when he stands up to his parents for her and you really get to know about him and his life you really want to just root for the two of them to end up together.
It is a modern day telling of family trouble and of course finding true love.Read more ›
It just makes more sense this way.
The beachfront setting of the film, not unlike a previous Sparks film adaptation `Nights in Rodanthe', is stunning and certainly creates a mood, the same mood that follows a lot of Sparks' stories. You can feel the love in the air from the moment the sandy shores are revealed. The acting here is also quite decent, with the exception of Kelly Preston who is just really bad at whatever it is she is trying to do. Greg Kinnear is always a welcome presence, and he layers the stereotypical `dad' role with enough personality to make him endearing. Liam Hemsworth is like a talented Paul Walker (they look very similar) and that is becoming. I see a career in front of him that may (and I'm not really joking here) lead him to some award recognition in ten years or so. That said, the star of the show has a decent three-quarter turn here. Once here character gets out of the `I'm trying to be distant and rebellious' stage she actually shines. So, I'd say that a good 75% of Miley Cyrus's performance is pretty darn good. I'll tell you this, the main performances (and the nonchalant way the film is edited in parts) goes a long way to making this film entertaining, since there are a lot more cons than pros here. But, before I switch gears, I want to mention the biggest pro here and that is the theme song to the film. `When I Look At You' is beautifully sung (yes, I'm talking about you Miss Cyrus) and effortlessly captivating. It actually yanks at your heartstrings more than this movie does!
