Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

220px-On_Stranger_Tides_PosterTonight we finished watching Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011, PG-13).  From screenit:

A flamboyant pirate, his former nemesis, a feared pirate and various others set out to beat the rest in finding the legendary fountain of youth.

Finn really enjoys Jack Sparrow's antics.  I thought it was fine.  3 out of 5.

Moneyball

220px-Moneyball_PosterLast night we watched Moneyball (2011, PG-13).  From screenit:

A major league baseball general manager uses the numbers provided by his young statistics wizard in hopes of creating a winning team in a highly unorthodox way.

We enjoyed it, but I suspect I would have enjoyed it even more if I wasn't already acquainted with the concept.

I give it 4 out of 5.

Journey to the Center of the Earth

I read Journey to the Center of the Earth and then saw the movie after I read it.  The movie and the book were different in a couple ways.  One was in the movie there was a dinosaur and in the the book there wasn't.  In the book they were trying to go to the center of the earth but in the movie they accidentally did.  In the book the mountain guide was a man and in the movie it was a woman. 

My favorite part of the movie was when the dinosaur chased them because it was cool.  The dinosaur was huge and the people were trying to get away.  One of the funny parts was when the boy woke up and there was a dead piranha right next to him with its mouth open and the sharp teeth showing.  He was really really surprised and scared at first but then he realized it was dead.  When we saw the movie it was in 3D.  We had special glasses and when stuff was coming forward it looked like it was coming right at you.  It looked like it was right in front of your face. 

My favorite part of the book was when these two big monsters in the ocean fought.  The funniest part of the book was: nothing!
