This Weekend At The Movies (July 15-17)

There are only two movies coming out this weekend and I’m sure most of you know one of them.

HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART 2

(MP’s Pick of the Week)

Directed by David Yates.  Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter.

The final chapter begins as Harry and company continue their quest of finding and destroying the Dark Lord’s three remaining Horcruxes, the magical items responsible for his immortality. But as the mystical Deathly Hallows are uncovered and Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again.

The end of a huge movie franchise is here.  It’s almost kind of sad to see it go, but everything must have an end.  If you like the movies, I don’t see how you aren’t going to enjoy this one.  It looks epic in scale and is the culmination of everything we’ve seen now.  I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a solid and exciting film.  There really isn’t too much that needs to be said about the film.  Go see it!

WINNIE THE POOH

Directed by Stephen J. Anderson and Dan Hall.  Starring the voices of Jim Cummings, Bud Luckey, Travis Oates, Jack Boulter, John Cleese and Craig Ferguson.

During an ordinary day in Hundred Acre Wood, Winnie the Pooh sets out to find some honey. Misinterpreting a note from Christopher Robin, Pooh convinces Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo, and Eeyore that their young friend has been captured by a creature named “Backson” and they set out to save him.

It’s kind of nice to see that they honored Winnie the Pooh with traditional 2D animation.  I do see a little cg enhancement in the trailer, but it looks mostly hand drawn.  It’s alway great to see 2D animation continue and offer kids something more than a snazzy looking cg animated movie.  The movie has gotten good reviews and if you like the musings of Zooey Deschanel, then you will be treated to a few songs that she sings in the movie.  Winnie the Pooh is a classic story that is easily recommended to families with young children who want to see something of quality.
