Packed to the brim with Broadway stars and the sweeping songs throughout, Frozen just screams of a future Broadway show of the movie that Soccer Moms and Thespians will sing in their cars for years. I do believe that Frozen will be around for a long time, as a new classic.
This show follows Korra, the teenaged Avatar, as she comes into her full powers and gets trained in how to actually use them, as well as how to be the Avatar. Of course, things don’t go smoothly and there are conspiracies to thwart, intrigues and mysteries to solve, lots of martial arts and element “bending”, action, and romance.
It could be as much as a year before the tour comes back to Southern California, so this week’s shows are going to be the only ones in the southland for quite some time. If you live there you won’t want to miss out, and if you don’t live there, but have friends who do, then you won’t want them to miss out either.
Retiring from a life of nefarious plots, Gru is content to focus on raising his three adopted daughters and having his formerly evil minions develop a new line of jams and jellies.
But as Despicable Me 2 begins, Gru finds himself thrust back into the world of evil-doers when a top secret base is stolen from the Arctic Circle. Gru is recruited to go undercover and try to discover the true perpetrator who is hiding out at the local mall. His trio of girls are delighted that he’s been teamed with Lucy, who may be the antidote Gru needs for his loneliness and fear or dating.
I love animation. Almost all kinds of animation. I loved animation before it was cool. I consider a hot date to be the latest Disney or Pixar film, and always have. I go to animated movies whether I have a child with me or not, because I love the medium and I love the movies made for the medium. On the other hand, I hate 3-D. Almost always. So, I was a little wary, seeing as I was going to the 3-D screening of Despicable Me 2.
More of my childhood memories are finally making it to home video!
Marine Boy and Starblazers were my earliest introductions to Japanese anime, and it’s safe to say that both series served to jumpstart my imagination and a craving for adventures that would form the base for my newly started geek sensibilities.
