Tips forTuesday - Movies - Leap and Unleashed Plus a Giveaway!


Me - Today  I am recommending Leap. Leap is movie about a girl who wants to be a dancer. It was a cute movie.The story was interesting.   The characters were mostly nice.It was totally different than other movies I have seen. The main character was very determined and persist.  Girl characters are not always portrayed that way in movies especially young girls. She was a good role model for girls. People who like sweet stories and happy endings would like this movie.  All in all, it was a good movie, and I would highly recommend seeing it.



Mom -  Today I am recommending two movies.




First, I am also recommending Leap. Leap is the story of Felicie, a girl who wants to be a ballet dancer. This is a wonderful story for young girls because a young girl is the main protagonist, and she is not just an appendage to some boy that is the main character. In this movie, the boy is the sidekick and the girl is the heroine of the story. Also, Felcie is a character who is determined and goes after what she wants. She does not just sit and wait for things to happen for her or for some boy to come and rescue her.  The story makes a dance competiton into the equivalent of a sport possibly in attempt to market the movie to boys as well as girls which would give the movie more staying power. I am not sure if that will work. However, the movie does deserve to be seen because it has an interesting original story, a feisty likeable heroine and some other interesting characters a few of whom could probable use a movie of their own to fill in their mysterious but intriguing back stories. Besides, it's nice for girls to have a heroine of their own that isn't a princess.



Leap is in theaters now.




The second movie I am recommending is Unleashed. Unleashed is a quirky film about a woman whose dog and cat get turned into human men, and she begins dating them. If you only like films that are completely rooted in reality, you probably will not like this movie. However, if you like whimsical movies that allows you to suspend disbelief and live in another reality for a while and in this case not one where there are wizards or vampires, you may enjoy the film. The film is very well acted particularly by Steve Howey and Justin Chatwin, and if nothing else the film is worth seeing for their performances.


 Unleashed is in theaters and On Demand now.
