We just went to see this yesterday morning. I loved the Goofy short (How To Hook Up Your Home Theater) Hilarious!
Book of Secrets is good, almost as good as the first, though, not quite there. I thought it started out a little slow, just a tad, and the story wasn't as pointed and on the mark as the first, the plot sort of wandered just a bit, then found itself again. The first is 9.2 out of ten, this one gets a 8.1 out of ten. Like the action, acting, directing was a little off, the story was good but weaked at times. It's a sequel, if you remember this,
it's a good time for all.
"We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together."
I thought the film was good. The Goofy cartoon was wonderful to see though. It was hilarious and I was surprised by the great quality of the animation. No cheap stuff here. I loved how they included the shots of Walt. It really brought back that Disney spirit that has been lost for quite some time. It also got me excited about The Princess and the Frog-talk about "can't wait!" I loved the simplicity of the short. We need more of it in today's world. It gave me a hope of Disney future animation film ventures. Book of Secrets (and Enchanted) also bring a little hope to the streamlined operation of Disney Pictures and that we will see better movies in the future.
Went yesterday. I did not see the first one. I thought the movie was good for what it was, action/adventure. The plot was just so improbable that I had a hard time with it. But putting that aside it was fun to just go with it and enjoy the ride. And I agree it's nice to go to the movies and see something without cursing, sex and blood/gore.
I really enjoyed the Goofy short. Very well done. I heard a lot of laughs from the men in the audience about trying to set up a home theater. Right on the mark! Got a kick out of the packing material sticking to everything ... I hate that stuff
My daughter and I just got back from seeing it - we enjoyed it, laughed a lot - my ONLY complaint is that in this one we dind't have a chance to discover any clues - in the first one we had time to kind of figure it out along with the movie - there was too much jammed into this one - it was good - I'll look for it on Netflix to see th extras
Now I think I need to show my daughter one of the Indiana Jones movies - she hasn't seen them and I think she'll enjoy them
Just saw this today... I'm still not sure what it was about. Ed Harris, why did his character do all this? What happened to his henchmen when everyone went inside? What did the president have Gates look into on Page 42? I don't know... just felt kinda cobbled together.
The kids loved it, but they had a hard time justifying the need for the treasure hunt to prove the great great grandfather wasn't the architect of the assassination. They talked about it all the way home. It was a fun family discussion, actually.
My twelve year old daughter loves loves loves Helen Mirren and even more so now.
