Sunday I took the kids to see Rango, the new film starring Johnny Depp’s voice about a lizard who becomes a cop in an old west town where water is like money. I was hoping with a few of the shots in the trailer that it might be good. It started off ok, and liked a few scenes later in the movie, but as a whole it just wasn’t that entertaining that I could hold me for 90 minutes or so. Rattle Snake Jake also may haunt a few kids for a few nights after seeing it. My daughter clenched to my arm every time he was on, and my son said he was outside his window last night. The 4 animated movies from last year (Toy Story 3, How to Train a Dragon, MegaMind, Despicable Me) all blow this one out of the water.
1.5 Stars – Should be a Redbox or Netflix rental..highly disappointed in it.
Another thing that sucked was that my son spilled my drink all over, without anyone taking a drink, as soon as we sat down. $5 bucks down the drain. Overall a $30 trip to the movie with the 2 older kids. Not too bad I guess with 3 of us, but I won’t be getting drinks again. And probably not going to southridge many more time with kids. Probably head to Indianola, may take 10 more minutes to get there but it’s less expensive.
