Movie Reviews. Two Popular Ones Out Now

We have seen several movie these past weeks. The first one I would like to mention is:
The Last Airbender.
This one was seen both in regular format and 3D. I loved this movie! Wasn't too sure I would, however it has a great story line and keeps one on the edge of your seat. It's Graphics are great, they carry you away to the places and makes your mind believe you are there.
Here is the story line:
It has been over a century, since the Avatars have been able to keep peace in the world. Killed off by the Fire Nation and now the Fire Nation wishes to rule the world. They have killed off all the airbenders and are working on controlling the Earth-benders. Now there is also Waterbenders. This nation is still very powerful. The fire nation is working on a plan to eliminate them. Only there is a problem they have not anticipated, One Airbender is still live!

This movie is great in both Formats. I would give it a 10 on my scale. Will diffidently be purchasing the DVD when it comes out. A great Movie for the whole family.

The next one was:
The Sorcerer's Apprentice --- A Disney movie.
I so wanted to see this one. Seeing the previews made my desire great. Hubby and I went.
Now the story line is;
It has been centuries since the sorcerers ruled the kingdoms. During the last days some of the great ones were bottle up in a nest doll. All of their powers contained in that vessel. There was one sorcerer, instructed by Merlin to protect the vessel and keep it safe until the time came for the a New Powerful Sorcerer to come up. We are now in the 21st century and the Sorcerer has emerged only he does not know he is it. Now the Century old Sorcerer must convince him and train him to fight using his powers.

Over all The movie was okay. It had some great moments and a okay story line. I was disappointing in the amount of detail and animation used. With Disneys abilities in creating a great imagination into the unknown, I found they missed the opportunity in this film. I will give it a 6 on my rate scale. I think this is a good one to take younger kids to. It is not that Scary and would be a great family choice. As for the older child, the one who loves the intrigue and action pack, this is not the one for them. That is my opinion.
