The little robot first appeared in 1951 as a character in a Japanese comic book and became an instant icon. He was then featured as the star of his own TV series in both black-and-white and color, which aired in over 40 countries.

Created with breathtaking computer animation the film Astro Boy is a thrilling tale of a true hero. The film is set to debut in theaters on October 23, 2009.

Embarking on a journey in search of acceptance, Astro Boy encounters many other colorful characters along the way. Through his adventures, he learns the joys and emotions of being human, and gains the strength to embrace his destiny.


But when he learns his friends and family are in danger, Astro Boy marshals his awesome super powers and returns to Metro City in a valiant effort to save everything he cares about and to understand what it means to be a hero.

    BOSS BABY REVIEW:Today, I went to see Boss Baby. I honestly had never heard of Boss Baby until my boyfriend told me about it, but to my surprise, it was a great movie!Plot: A baby who works for Baby Corp. was sent on a mission to Timothy's parents house to destroy Puppy Corps. new puppy design. Puppies were getting more love and attention than the baby, so they wanted to destroy the company. Before the baby met Timothy, he never knew what love meant! Although you would expect this to be about a baby destroying another company, it actually teaches us an important lesson about love (and it's also really funny).Rating:I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars, and I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age. :)
