Rise of the Guardians Theatrical Poster

I hear a lot of my friends complaining this time of year that Thanksgiving gets lost in the shuffle and we seem to go straight from Halloween to Christmas with nothing in between. I guess because I have been in Media in some form or another for so long I'm already used to it.  I spent most of my time last week at Spring/Summer 2013 preview events, so I'm actually a few seasons ahead already, but I have had a chance to take in some fun Holidays themed entertainment and throughout the coming weeks I'll be sharing about it all here.

On Saturday I took in the Rise of the Guardians screening, and for those of you who like to take in a family film Thanksgiving Weekend this is definitely one to consider!

My Take:

I love that the film brings up topics so many young people can relate to, just wanting to be 'seen'/understood,  standing up for themselves and it makes parents think along the way too. How long do you allow your child to 'believe'? Wonder and sheer imagination are taken away from children at such a young age, it's nice when a family film can help encourage that wonder again, without being too boring for the adults to sit through! Jude Law is a convincing 'Pitch', and Alec Baldwin is a funny 'Russian Santa', and I dare you not to 'Aww!' at 'Baby Tooth' one of the tiny Tooth Fairies! And of course I wouldn't be the Ascending Butterfly without sharing that there is a butterfly sighting in this movie!
