“Little Boy” is a cute, heartwarming movie that is good for couples looking for a quick movie. The cast was all right, the themes were average, and the plot line had many holes in it. Jakob Salvati, who plays Pepper Busbee, does a pretty good job of acting like an adorable little boy. (Hence the title) He makes the audience really feel happy when he is happy and feel sad when he cries. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Hashimoto, did a good job as well in his supporting role. The themes of the movie were to believe in yourself and anything is possible, willpower is a strong thing, and never giving up. These are fairly common themes seen in many motivational movies. The plot itself was about a little boy, Pepper Busbee, whose father got sent to war. The movie is based around Pepper trying to bring his father home. Pepper was given a list of things to do that would help bring his father back home. Throughout the entire movie, Pepper, with the help of his new friend Hashimoto, is attempting to complete this list.
[W]hether you are looking for a romantic comedy or a classic, “Ten Things I Hate About You” will serve your needs. “Ten Things I Hate About You” is a modernization of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew.” It came out in 1999 and it became a huge success for its leading actors. Heath Ledger, who plays Patrick Verona, is no joker in this movie. Ledger portrays an outsider and a rebellious teen, surrounded by rumors. Julie Stiles plays Katarina Stratford, a feminist against popularity. The two actors beautifully create a unique bond, heightening the experiencing of the movie. All though, Ledger’s intriguing Australian accent could be its own movie.
One day as I was walking out of a parking garage in downtown Elgin, my dad and I spotted a pair of street performers. It consisted of two men, one on guitar and one playing an awkwardly small toy drum kit.
The top five movie picks for May this year
It was the end of our days of relaxation and freedom, so my dad decided to take me and my brother out to Sunday brunch at Burnt Toast. Our highly-anticipated long weekend ended in a high, delicious note. The line, as expected on a Sunday afternoon, stretched past the front doors and into the parking lot. Which is why were shocked when we were told that our wait time was going to be half an hour at the most. I did not believe it at first, but I soon started to realize that we had arrived at the perfect time. Everybody was wrapping up their meal and leaving the restaurant by the time we got our buzzer. It only took 20 minutes until our waitress sat in is a comfy booth right by the bar.
[T]he song “Move Along” by the All-American Rejects keeps playing on the radio and I keep wondering why. I think it keeps playing to remind us that school is almost over and all we can do is keep pushing until summer. I know I am struggling to get through the last few weeks of school and for me, the song is an inspiration. “Move Along” was the second single from All-American Rejects’ second studio album. It peaked and number nine on the US Billboard Pop 100 and has had over 20 million views on YouTube. In the midst of all of the stress of the final month of school, move along.
