Let's Go to the Movies!

I want to see Wreck-it-Ralph. It stars John C Reilly as the title character who is getting tired of being a villain and decides to become a hero. It was made by Disney and released last week gaining favorable reviews and was a box office success. One of the big highlights of the movie is that Sega's very own Sonic the Hedgehog makes multiple appearances in the film. I can't wait to see it! My mom says maybe this weekend.

Another movie I want to see if Frankenweenie, a film based on Tim Burton's 1984 live-action short of the same name. This is the first black and white stop-action film to be released in Imax 3-D! It follows the plot of the source material about a boy who brings his dog back from the dead after it is killed in an accident.

My brother Jack wants to see Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field, which tells about the final 4 months about President Lincoln's life. It is directed by Steven Spielberg, the man behind many popular movies. We are big Lincoln fans in this house. We took a vacation to Springfield to see the Lincoln museum and Lincoln's tomb. On another vacation, we toured the Lincoln birthplace and boyhood homes in Kentucky and Indiana.  We used to have this plastic Lincoln head on a stick that you could control with your hand. We used to say to each other "Mr. Lincoln says..." in a deep voice when we wanted to get each others attention. Unfortunately, the string holding Mr. Lincoln's jaw together broke, so now his mouth is lopsided. He looks like drunk Mr. Lincoln.  I would like to get another Lincoln head someday
