New Christmas Family Favorite--Rise of the Guardians
(Synopsis courtesy of Fandango)
Instead of shopping Black Friday sales, I decided to take my youngest son to the movies. We decided to see the early showing of Rise of the Guardians. I was greatly surprised at how good it was in regards to children's movies. Some of my favorite actors lent their voices to the characters Jude Law (Pitch/The Boogeyman) and Alec Baldwin (North/Santa Claus). I think I am one of the few people that continues to find Alec Baldwin enjoyable. I love him in 30 Rock.
The movie had a very good message about finding your "center" or what you contribute to humanity. Santa Clause has his "eyes of wonder" and Jack Frost must find his center in the movie. I thought this added a nice little holiday sentiment to the movie. I was a little puzzled about the Easter Bunny being Australian and carrying a boomerang but still found his character fun.
