Phase 4 Films (pt. 2)


Freddy Frogface

"Being small doesn't make life easy for little ten-year-old Victor and his friends, who not only have to face a world full of stern grown-ups but also the town bully Freddy Frogface. When a circus comes to the sleepy little town, Victor is thrilled at having the chance to perform in a talent show with his dog Sausage. Yet Freddy soon comes up with a sinister plot of his own to spoil Victor's plans." 

The boys were bored with this movie. I'm not sure why. Noah was willing to put it in his room and to "see if he liked it" later LOL I thought it was cute ad there was a good message to it. I really liked the way the people were drawn in this animation. They were fun! :)


Donkey X

"Follow Rucio, the most adventurous, brave, and mischievous donkey of Castile, as he tells the true story of the legendary Don Quixote. Rucio jumps at the opportunity to join Don Quixote ad his trusted friend Sancho on their quest to battle The Half Moon Knight and overcome the dangerous obstacles lurking along the way."

Neither of the boys were interested in this movie and honestly, neither was I. It wasn't really the type of movie that we gravitate towards. It kind of sounded like it wanted to *maybe* be a Shrek wanna-be (and honestly, I wasn't a big fan of Shrek either), *shrugs* it was just meh for us. The one thing that I "liked" about this movie was the fact that it could spur an interested party on to more investigation into history. Which is always a plus in my mind.



"Mischievous thirteen-year-old Ben is sent to his grandfather's farm for the summer, where he crosses paths with a lovable mutt named Smitty. With help from the unlikely canine companion, Ben learns the importance of friendship, family and responsibility. When life gets tough for Ben, a friendly paw is all it takes to pull him through."

Ben is a little more than mischievous. He's a bit out of control. Mom can't handle him anymore so she sends him to live with her dad - who has never been a part of Ben's life. So begins a summer of Ben learning to become a responsible, contributing member of society.

Out of this group of movies I'd have to say that Smitty was the hands-down favorite, for all of us! It was a little cheesy, but who cares! I could be found chuckling a couple of times. Noah, especially loved this movie. He was actually in tears near the end.
