Recent movies

Watched several movies over the last week and a half - these are in reverse order of how much I liked them:

A Thousand Words - Alana wanted to see this, though it was not as funny and not as kid-friendly as the promos suggested.  Not a bad movie; it seemed to rather go over the head of the person in our family that it was most relevant for . . .

The Pirates (Band of Misfits) - Durn cute animated tale sort of about a group of pirates trying to win Pirate of the Year for their captain, though there's a bunch of other stuff crammed in there too.

Mirror Mirror - I found this quite charming, and I was somewhat surprised because there was a lot of grumbling about this movie when it came out - not sure what the fuss was about.

What to Expect When You're Expecting - Quite enjoyable movie about having babies, with lots of winning performances from A listers and character actors alike

Moonrise Kingdom - What can you say about this thoroughly quirky and rather surprisingly sentimental offering from the king of whimsy himself, Wes Anderson?  Lots of silliness, but also so much charm in this offbeat story of love and loneliness and fitting in (or not).  A cinematic delight.
