The Vow

*this may contain spoilers*

Rating: PG13 "Accident scene, sexual content, partial nudity, and some language"
Staring: Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum
Genre: Drama, Romance
Released: 10th of February, 2012

My Review:
I enjoyed the movie, I thought Channing Tatum gave a beautiful performance, certainly my favourite of his. I love that it was based on a true story. That of Kim and Kricket Carpenter. I wish they had shown the Christian element of the life of Carpenters, to them it was very important, and they give God credit for bringing them close and keeping their marriage together. And because it was based on the true story, it has those twists that real life does. It's not like one of those predictable romantic movie, where you can, literally, see everything that's going to happen. I liked it, I thought McAdams and Tatum were a great on screen match, and I think the movie was well made. Again I say, I just really enjoyed Channing Tatum's performance. I personally also really enjoyed the end, though I think it will leave some unhappy.

To sum it up, if you like romantic movies, I think you'll like this.

Peter Pan

*This may contain spoilers*

Rating: PG
Staring: Jeremy Sumpter and Jason Isaacs
Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy
Released: 25th of December, 2003

My Review:
I love this live action adaption of the classic children's story. Peter Pan has always been a favourite of mine when I was growing up. In this one I think they really give you a good picture of just what Peter meant to Never Land, and why he didn't want to grow up. I think the movie had that really magical feeling to it, just like Peter Pan should. Traveling to Never Land should be out of this world, and it wasn't this fantastical Oz or Wonka Chocolate Factory, but that wasn't what it was supposed to be. It was an island filled with fairies and mermaids and pirates. I thought Jeremy was a great choice for Peter, and Rachel Hurd-Wood played a wonderful Wendy. I liked it allot.

To sum it up, it is a great version.
