Top 10 Movies of 2007

From a new Harry Potter flick to a rat who wants to be a chef, Kidzworld counts down the Top 10 Movies of 2007. How many have you seen?

#10. The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep

The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep

The story begins when Angus, a young Scottish boy, finds a strange egg. When he takes it home, he soon finds himself face-to-face with an amazing creature, the mythical water horse of Scottish lore. Angus begins a journey of discovery, facing his greatest fears and risking his life to protect a secret that would give birth to a legend. This is simply a really nice family movie with good special effects and a straightforward, heartfelt story. Plus, baby animals, even strange ones, are super cute!

#9. Hairspray

Hairspray

Showing off a star-studded cast including Amanda Bynes, Zac Efron and newcomer Nikki Blonsky, Hairspray is the story of Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, who just wants to dance. Hairspray is a deliriously upbeat film that manages to cover the heavy topic of race relations without getting preachy or dull. Its flamboyance and bubblegum charm will win over all but the grumpiest of audiences. This instant classic puts its own twist on the original cult hit and is sure to leave you dancing in the aisles!

#8. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) returns to Hogwarts to discover that the wizarding community thinks the story of his encounter with Lord Voldemort is a lie. Even worse, Hogwart’s has become too politically correct and the classes aren’t teaching them anything useful. Meeting secretly with a small group of students who name themselves Dumbledore's Army, Harry teaches them how to defend against the Dark Arts, preparing the young wizards for the magical battle that lies ahead. The darkest and moodiest of the Potter Series so far, The Order of the Phoenix gives us a good look at the heart of our hero as he deals with his innermost demons, and like all Potter flicks, is super cool to watch.

#7. Stardust

Stardust

Stardust is the tale of a fallen star who crashes into a magical kingdom and turns out to be a beautiful young woman. She is being chased by an incredible mix of characters who want or need her secret powers. From wicked witches to power-hungry princes, from flying pirates to gruesome goblins, each person who chases the star desires just one thing - her heart. Michelle Pfeiffer is awesome as the evil witch, Claire Danes is magical as the star, Yvaine, and the whole movie is visually stunning. Stardust is a great fairy tale for those who are feeling a little too grown up for Disney movies!

#6. The Bourne Ultimatum

The Bourne Ultimatum

All he wanted was to disappear. Instead, Jason Bourne is now hunted by the people who made him what he is. Having lost his memory and the one person he loved, he is undeterred by the explosions and bullets of a new generation of hit-men. Bourne has one objective - to go back to the beginning and find out who he was. This series cemented Matt Damon as a certified action star, and this film in particular has everything a great action flick needs - strong performances, a fast-paced plot, and adrenaline pumping action sequences.

#5. The Simpsons Movie

The Simpsons Movie

Finally! The Simpsons[/KWLINK] family find themselves on the silver screen for the first time in The Simpsons Movie. Eagerly anticipated, this animated feature film has all of your favorite Springfield residents as Homer tries to save the world from a catastrophe that he, of course, created. The only thing better than a half hour of the Simpsons is two full hours and tons of extra laughs. The animation is right on and the writing is just as funny and fresh as millions of Simpsons fans have come to expect.
 

#4. Arctic Tale

Arctic Tale

From National Geographic Films, who brought you March of the Penguins, Arctic Tale is an epic adventure that explores the vast world of the Great White North. The film follows a walrus, Seela and a polar bear, Nanu, on their journey from birth to adolescence to maturity and parenthood in the frozen Arctic wilderness. This film is funny, sad, and even a little scary, just like real life. The whole family can enjoy this film that proves to be moving and inspirational.

#3. Enchanted

 Enchanted

A classic Disney fairy tale collides with modern-day New York City in a story about a fairytale princess who is thrust into the heart of NY by an evil queen. Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer. Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world? Enchanted is a hilarious, goofy musical comedy that pokes fun at the traditional Disney fairy tales, without becoming too cynical. Amy Adams is perfect as Giselle, and the song-and-dance numbers are laugh-out-loud funny.

#2. Juno

Juno

Juno stars Ellen Page as the whip-smart teen confronting an unplanned pregnancy by her boyfriend Bleeker (Michael Cera). With the help of her best friend, Leah, Juno finds her unborn child a perfect set of parents: a rich suburban couple, Mark and Vanessa, longing to adopt. Luckily, Juno has the total support of her parents as she faces some tough decisions, flirts with adulthood, and ultimately figures out where she belongs. Juno is quirky, well-acted, perfectly written and its two young stars couldn't be better. What more could you ask for?

#1. Ratatouille

Ratatouille

Ratatouille is the perfect family film. It tells the charming story of a rat who wants to be a chef[/KWLINK] but can't because, well, he's a rat, of course. The latest computer-generated masterpiece from Pixar Animation Studios, Ratatouille is a beautifully animated, soulful comedy about family, independence and working hard to make your dreams come true. It's also fall-out-of-your-seat funny!

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
