I’m not really as up-to-date with movies as I used to be, but I recently got both Sydney White and Bridge to Terabithia from Netflix and I was surprised to find how much I loved them both!
is a Snow White retelling starring Amanda Bynes which puts it right up my alley, but it was only in theaters for about a day, so I assumed it was terrible. Still, I had to see it, right? And I have to say, it was very funny. I don’t know what Samm Levine
did to become the eternal smarmy, girl-crazy nerd, but he certainly does it well. I thought the whole thing was pretty well done; quite cute and some laughs to boot.
As for Bridge to Terabithia
, I was appalled by the trailers for this movie, as it looked like a realistic little story about two friends making up a world of their imagination in the backwoods had been turned into a fantasy CGI nightmare. Turns out the showed every bit of the CGI in the trailer, and the majority of the movie was exactly what I would have hoped. I read that Dakota Fanning turned down the part of Leslie Burke
, and while I like her fine, I’m quite glad the AnnaSophia Robb who is growing on my at an alarming rate.
