Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole Movie Review

October 10th, 2010 by

The new movie Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole really SOARED opening weekend, coming in at #2 at the box office. But did the story — adapted from Kathryn Lasky’s Guardians of Ga’Hoole book series — really FLY on the big screen? Was it a HOOT? Or is it FOR THE BIRDS? And just how many owl puns can we fit into this paragraph?

Lucky for you, that paragraph is over — so we’re done with the bad jokes and now you can watch our video review of Legend of the Guardians. (Be sure to stay tuned until the end for a rousing game of Owl or Cheese!)

(PS – If you want to listen to our review ON THE FLY, you can download the audio. Sorry, couldn’t resist one more bird pun…)

Breaking Book News: Guardians of Ga’Hoole Movie Trailer

March 8th, 2010 by

On Friday, Nancy and I were among the crowds lined up to see the new Alice in Wonderland movie on opening night. How was it? Well, you’ll have to wait a little longer for our KidsmomoMO movie review, but I’ll give you a hint: one of the most exciting things on screen came before the film even started… the premiere of the Guardians of Ga’Hoole movie trailer!

Entitled Legend of the Guardians, the film is due out in September and will cover the first three books in Kathryn Lasky’s popular book series*. Of course, like every other movie these days, it will be in 3D. And while I’m not always the biggest fan of 3D, in this case I think it’s going to make a HUGE difference. Because I’m sorry to say that this online trailer isn’t nearly as breathtaking as what I saw in the theater. But check it out anyway, and leave a comment with your thoughts! What do you think — did they get it right?

Guardians of Ga'hoole #4 The SiegeReviewed by: Milo, Age 9 from Washington

Rating: ★★★★★

This book is a great. It is very exciting and interesting. The author makes it so that you are almost traveling to that time and place. I love this book because it is about Soren when he goes back to St. Aggie’s Academy and he barely escapes from Kludd, his evil brother, with the pure ones. A great book! I can’t tell you any more because it would ruin the story.

This book stars Soren, a young barn owl who is captured by some mysterious owls. They take him to St. Aggie’s, an academy for owls. Soren meets a friend, Gylfie, and together they escape the academy. Along the way the two meet Twilight and Digger. If you would like more, then check out the book! I’d really reccomend this book to you. It’s 110% epic. Woot! I mean, Hoot!
