Movie Review: Finding Forrester

January 7 2017:

Team TLC Movie Night: My choice – “Finding Forrester”

I say, “I love this story. ‘The first key to writing is just to write! Write from the heart. Review with the head.’ I love this story! Oh. Did I say, I love this story. I could have done with a lot less inappropriate language, yet, I understand it was representative of the characters.”

Thomas says, “Good movie. I liked it a lot. Funny in some parts, suspenseful, liked the characters. Really liked that Forrester wears his socks inside out due to the seams on the inside. I agree and wear my socks inside out. The people who make socks make them wrong.”

Lillian says, “Good, awesome, and my favorite part was near the end. I liked it!”

The Grasshopper and the Ants

Team TLC movie night for April 28, 2012 – We chose from Disney’s Timeless Tales, Vol. 1 – The Prince and the Pauper/Three Little Pigs/The Tortoise and the Hare (amazon affiliate link) for our pre-show tale tonight!

★★★★★ – Thomas and Lillian both enjoyed this short pre-show. We watched The Grasshopper and the Ants. It’s only about 8 minutes with a good moral. The perfect pre-show for a Team TLC movie night! Enjoyed by all three of us!

The Rescuers

Team TLC movie night for March 17, 2012 – The Rescuers (amazon affiliate link)

★★★★★ – Thomas and Lillian both enjoyed this movie. They were laughing for many scenes and sat still for the entire move. I loved how the movie’s underlying story was that of faith … never lose faith in yourself and your dreams. Any G Rated movie with that message as it’s foundation gets more than five stars in my book. Enjoyed by all of Team TLC!!

Wind in the Willows

Team TLC movie night for March 19, 2012 – Walt Disney’s Timeless Tales Volume Two: Ugly Duckling / The Wind in the Willows / The Country Cousin / Ferdinand The Bull (amazon affiliate link) Wind in the Willows was our pre-show tale tonight!

★★★★★ – Thomas and Lillian both LOVED Wind in the Willows. They laughed and laughed. The perfect pre-show for a Team TLC movie night! Enjoyed by all three of us!

Flipper’s New Adventure

Team TLC movie night for February 11, 2012 – Flipper’s New Adventure (amazon affiliate link)

★★★★★ – Thomas and Lillian both enjoyed the original Flipper. Lillian loved the music. She says, “The singing is beautiful.” We sure did miss Lillian for this one. She would have liked it too. Thomas sat still for the entire movie. He enjoyed the movie, all except for the “fighting it out” scene with the bad guys. He really did not like that whole section of the movie. It was all rectified with a happy ending though! Enjoyed by both of us!

The 12 Dancing Princesses

Team TLC movie night for February 4, 2012 – Barbie in The 12 Dancing Princesses (amazon affiliate link)

★★★★★ – Thomas and Lillian both enjoy the Barbie movies. Sure, they are unrealistic; but I love the underlying moral of each one of these that we have watched. This one certainly did not disappoint! Enjoyed by ALL three Team TLC members!

A Small World of Fun – Take Three

Team TLC movie night for February 4, 2012 – Walt Disney’s It’s a Small World of Fun, Vol. 1 (amazon affiliate link) was our pre-show movie.

★★★★★ – We watched the last of the shorts from this DVD for our pre-show again this weekend. This time “A Cowboy Needs a Horse”. Lots and lots of laughter with this one! “Grievance of a Star Maker” was a bit more serious as it dealt with pollution and the environment. It’s about a little boy who loved the stars and helped the star maker keep them clean and shiny. Thomas and Lillian enjoyed it.

Tom Sawyer

Team TLC movie night for January 28, 2012 – Tom Sawyer (amazon affiliate link)

★★★ – I wanted so badly to give this movie 5 stars. We all LOVED it. We only watch G rated movies and I was just disappointed with the scene in which Tom and Huck witness a “killin”. They showed the “bad” guy take a knife, bend down over the victim with stabbing motions and showed the knife after with blood on it. Although the victim was not seen, Thomas did not feel good seeing this. I still highly recommend the movie, but when this scene is approaching have your kids leave the room or cover their eyes.
