- Today I saw two films with my son before zipping off to Brampton for a bridal shower. I have let my primary-aged son rate these and I repeat some of his comments.
- My son gave The Ugly Duckling and Me five out of five. He laughed all the way through and never took his eyes from the screen. There are even a few yuks for the parents.
- Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker was more violent than I expected. My son said the film was a bit too old for him. His main complaint was that some scenes were too suspenseful, which he called “annoying.” He still gave it four out of five stars.
- It's a good James Bond rip-off with a childish villain and a highschool sweatheart -- but no bikini babe. It seems to be aimed at ages up to 13. Warning: The actor playing Alex is so cute that when he enters a room, flocks of girls start chirping and cooing.
