So on opening day of Disney’s The Princess and The Frog Movie – I went and saw it. Just got back about a half hour ago. I decided to have a mom and daughter day and it is very rare that I ever see a movie the day it opens. I am not one for crowds and busy theaters – just me. I was luck that my local town theater was featuring this movie today – so I got extra lucky. So what did I think? I loved it – It is very rare that any Disney Movie would not be liked. The introduction of Princess Tiana was well done and it is nice to have a new Princess in the line up.
I think the movie sends a great message to younger children about working hard to achieve your goals and dreams. Yes of course there is also the fantasy of kissing a frog and finding your prince, but that is the fantasy part of the movie. I also really enjoyed all the Jazzy New Orleans Style Music throughout the movie and it really added to the charm. I think this movie had all the magic Disney Movies bring between the animation. music and the message. I came out of the theater with the thought – Dreams do come True and truly if you believe they will.
I give this movie 2 thumbs up and if you have the opportunity to see it – I say go for it. So once again – Welcome Princess Tiana – there is no doubt little girls everywhere are happy you have been created.
Now that I have seen the movie I will be making some changes to The Princess and The Frog Party Theme I have put together to reflect some ideas I have gathered from watching the movie. So be sure to come stop by and see.
I am a huge fan of the movie A Christmas Story and I can watch it over and over every year. My older sister just recently told me she has never seen the movie and I almost feel off my seat. I thought this movie is one everybody has seen at least once, but I guess I was wrong. So my mission is to get her to see it this year – she has seen bits and pieces, but that is not good enough.
The reason it came up in conversation was because I happened to stumble across some Christmas Story Party Supplies and decided I would put together an entire party based on the movie. So I did a lot of thinking and created some great party games that can be played based off some of the best scenes from the movie and also some great finds to go perfectly with the theme. You can see the entire post here: A Christmas Story Party. The ideas are great for Birthday Parties and even for your Family Holiday Parties to give them some extra added fun.
Everything is there from How to make a Leg Lamp Cake to making your very own Secret Decoder like the one Ralphie got in the mail to decode the message “Be sure to drink your Ovaltine”. I am so excited over this party theme – I am very happy with how it came out and the game ideas are great so if you want a party for the holiday that will have the guests talking you must stop by and check it out.
I also did a Hubpage on Ralphie’s Pink Nightmare – if you saw the movie you will know this is the gift he received from Aunt Clara. It was one of my favorite scenes in the movie. Did you know you can buy the Pink Bunny Pajamas? It is true you can own your very own Pink Nightmare and I wrote all about it. Could you imagine wearing it your self or giving it to someone as a gift – how funny would that be. So stop by and check it out – I Triple Dog Dare ya!!!
Will we be seeing Blue again?
How Smurf-ariffic – well for some that is. Yes you heard me right the Smurfs will have their own movie. Looks like as of now it is due to come out into theaters in 2010 – a bit of a delay from when they originally wanted it to hit. Do you know that Smurfs just had their 50th anniversary?
Now I am not that old, but I played with these cute little guys when I was a child and still have some of them to this day. Ok well I no longer play with them, but they really bring back memories for me. I would sit and have them all set up in my den and play with them as I watched the cartoon on TV.
Believe it or not they are still making these today and have come out with some new ones that I just think are so neat like this one:
I call him Geek Smurf
So if you were a Smurf fan in your day – watch out cause they are gonna come back with vengeance. I just know that all the kids will be wanting these blue guys and with any movie comes merchandising. Everything will be BLUE.
You can read all about it at my Squidoo page and even find some of the new unique Smurfs, as well as the old ones.
