I don't usually go to the movies, despite the fact that I love them, I usually wait till they come out on video and watch from the comfort of my easy chair. I also have a difficult time paying the price of a movie theater and never ever grab a snack that ends up costing me as much as a good dinner out.
That being said, my daughter, grandson, and I took in The Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Gahoole last night, and I must admit it was worth the price of the tickets to see this beautiful story in 3D.
This was my first 3D movie since my youth when the 3D glasses were cardboard, and I was truly amazed at the technology (and the glasses).
But what I really loved was the story and the characterization. Soreen, was a wonderful hero and his brother Kludd, a spiteful and jealous villian. I am now really excited that I picked up Kathryn Lasky's book The Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Gahoole Collection, last week and I can't wait to read the books that went into the making of this movie. It will also be a great addition to my classroom library.
If you have children, then I highly recommend you take them to this beautiful and poignant story about believing in one's dreams, having faith in things unseen, and finding the courage to fight for what you believe. If you don't have children, then I still recommend this endearing tale. It will certainly bring out your inner child.
