This is so encouraging!

TED Blog

Diana Nyad swam 110 miles from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage, a journey that took her just under 53 hours last September. In today’s talk, Nyad gives a vivid account of what it was like to be out in the water, making her fifth attempt at this swim — one she first tried in 1978 when she was 28 years old. So how did she make it through the jellyfish, the unpredictable currents and the darkness “like you’ve never seen?”

Saving Mr.Banks

Hello Fellow Moviegoers! Today I am going to be reviewing the movie Saving Mr.Banks. Saving Mr. Banks is about P.L Travers played by Emma Thompson and Walt Disney played by Tom Hanks. P.L Travers is the author of Mary Poppins and she says that she will never give up thinking about Mary Poppins because she wants to make it into a movie. Walt Disney plays a huge role in this because he helps P.L. Travers during the whole process. I encourage you to go see this movie! You won’t be discouraged!

Hello again fellow moviegoers, I am going to be reviewing the movie Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The first Anchorman was hilarious, from what I’ve seen throughout extended trailers, the movie is funny.

I hope you will see this movie! The movie comes out on December 20th. See you next friday!! 

Ender’s Game

Hello fellow movie lovers, My name is Luke Janosy. I am going to be reviewing the movie “Ender’s Game”. I thought the movie was great. The movie was very interesting because it kept switching from our 3rd person to 1st person point of view. Ender Wiggin is the main character and he was taught to be the International Leader of the Military. They were attacked by aliens called the Formics. Ender Wiggin (played by Asa Butterfield) is a shy, but a strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of school to join the elite. The Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley). Also, the Colonel, Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) to train the best young children to find the future Mazer. Overall, I thought the movie was great. You should go see it! It’ll be worth it! FYI: From now on I will post movie reviews every Friday. Sorry for the inconvenience. See you next friday!
