Rise of the Planet of the Apes: Observations by a 9 Year Old


Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Observations by my 9 year old daughter Nat....

"Mom, he's so cute. I like baby monkeys. Mom, that guy is mean. I don't like him. Mom. Mom. Are the apes good or bad? Mom, how is that guy sick? Mom, what is his disease? Oh. I think he's better now. Mom, I can't keep all the different ape names straight. Mom, what happened to the circus ape? Mom, is this movie going to have a happy ending? Mom, I want a pet monkey. I always wanted a pet monkey. Mom, when I get my pet monkey I'm going to name it Caesar. Caesar's a good name. Mom, that virus is good for the apes, but bad for people. Mom, I can't eat any dinner because I'm thinking about Caesar. That also happens to me when I watch zombie movies.....

Mom, this movie is totally getting 5 stars."

Grade: 5 stars (4.5 from Nat's mom)

Happy Weekend,
Penelope

I guess I'll have to catch that one. Though, it won't be the same without the running commentary. And I'm not sure it would make me want a pet monkey. Ah, to be 9 again. :) Great review!

Hi Sherri! My daughter makes every movie a unique experience....her perspective is usually spot-on. I really liked this movie...great premise, well-executed.

Oh I want some more! She's great at the running commentary. And so astute. I don't blame her - I can't sleep or eat after animal movies.

Maybe she should start doing Downton Abbey episode recaps. ;)

Penelope said...

Julia.....she is amazingly astute for her age. She gets a lot of themes and symbolism that many adults would miss. I love watching films with her, but hell, that kid never shuts up. You'll see when you visit! :^)

Tasha....I have not seen that show but everyone seems to love it. Maybe I can watch it online?
