Good Movies, Bad Movies

Hello World!

Pretty much everyone has watched that really sucky movie that was a total waste of your time. Everyone has watched that movie that was absolutely AMAZING and you’ve watched it over ten times. I’m going to name some movies that made me leap around the room they were so incredible, and some movies that were a major ‘meh’.

  1. Highlander. Highlander is about these special people who are immortal. An immortal person can only be killed by another immortal person. They try to kill each other, and try to be the last immortal. If you are the last immortal, then you get a grand prize. The movie focuses on one everlasting guy. My Dad was an 80’s dude, and still is. We only listen to 80’s music in the car, and he is always showing us movies that he watched from that era. My Dad was so excited to show us Highlander, and he told the story when he was a kid, his sister showed him this movie, and he freaked out and watched it over and over again. I had my hopes up, and I knew that Highlander was going to be boss. But it wasn’t. It sucked. If you’ve seen Highlander, loved it, and you’re yelling at your screen in anger right now while reading this, I’m sorry you’re upset. But when the movie was over, I said, “That’s it? That was boring.” I do not recommend this movie, but if you want to use the precious time you have on planet earth to see it, do whatever the heck you want.

2. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Okay, if you got the impression that I don’t like 80’s stuff, you’re wrong. The 80’s are great. Just not Highlander. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was just plain awesome. It’s what it sounds like. It’s about Robin Hood. He is a criminal, but escapes from this place where they cut your hands off(the movie takes place in medieval times, so that explains it all). He finds these forest people and they fight, but Robin eventually joins them. The Sheriff of Nottingham hates Robin for a reason I forget(I haven’t watched the movie since forever, and our copy of it is caput). The Sheriff captured some of the forest people and is about to hang them, and there’s this big, epicly awesome battle, plot twists, a little romance, basically everything you’d want in an action/adventure movie. I’d totally recommend this movie, and you should go watch it because it leaves you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Plus Alan Rickman is in it. (R.I.P.)

3. Sing. Now I know what you’re thinking. Most people thought Sing was a fantastic movie! I did too! But it wasn’t. In my opinion. If you’ve forgotten what Sing is, or just haven’t seen it yet, let me sum it up for you. It’s an animation about an animal city, and a koala who owns a theatre that has had really bad reviews and shows. So he decides to have a singing talent show with a grand prize to bring a more positive vibe to the theatre. He chooses a bunch of different animals, runs through a few problems, and does the talent show. Sounds like a fairly decent movie, right? Well, I thought there were too many issues in the plot. When it seemed like the movie was over, a new problem came up, and another half an hour went by as the characters tried to solve it. The big plot idea had problems, and each character themselves had their own problems. Some parts of the movie were alright. There were funny moments, but all in all it was a bad movie for me. I personally wouldn’t recommend this movie, but like I said before, if you want to use the precious time you have left on earth watching this movie, go for it, but don’t say I didn’t warn you…

4. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Back to the 80’s. More like way back in time for the characters in this movie. It’s about these two teenagers, Bill and Ted, who are totally into Van Halen. They want to be musicians just like him. They do really bad in school. There’s a history project that they have to get done, and get a good grade on, and if they don’t get a good grade, Ted’s dad is going to send Ted away to military school. A magical telephone box pops up, and it can send them anywhere in time. To the future, or to the past. This movie is totally excellent, laugh out loud, and fascinating all at the same time. I’d recommend it more than any other movies in this post. All I can say is, ‘Party on, dudes!’

Hi everyone!

Today I’m going to tell you about volleyball! I’m on the girls team this year, and we recently had our first game! We played three different schools, and hosted the games at my school. I like volleyball because it’s a sport that challenges you, but is also really fun. My team is really supportive of everyone.

I usually like solo sports. I do track and field, and I like it because you’re always competing with yourself, and trying to get your own personal best. Volleyball is a team sport, but in a way, follows the same sort of thing. Everyone on the team has their own personal techniques, and everyone has different skill levels than others. So you set your own goals to be your best and help the team improve. But really, the whole team is helping each other improve. You have to work together.

Volleyball is a really fun sport, and if you haven’t played before, you should try it out! It’s a great sport to work hard and have fun with your friends. If you don’t do too many sports, this might be the thing for you!

Do you like volleyball? Are you on a team?

Happy blogging!

About Me

Hi everyone!

My name is Gabi, I’m 12 years old, and I live in the Comox Valley in British Columbia, Canada.
I’m in a grade 6 and 7 split class, but I’m in grade 7.

I love animals, sports, theatre, reading, writing, and chilling with my friends.
I’m part of the local track and field club, and I love to throw, sprint, jump, basically everything you can do in Track and Field! I recently went to a provincial championship track meet and got first place in Hammer throw!

I have a pen pal named Catharine at a senior care home in my town. We write letters to each other and talk about what we’re doing in our lives, and exciting things that are happening.

I’m part of the cross country team at my school, as well as the volleyball team. Both are really fun, and I’m glad I’m taking part in them. I also do dance for two hours a week, and I take jazz and ballet. I’ve been dancing since I was three years old!

My parents aren’t married anymore, so I go back and forth between two different houses. I have two cats at my Dad’s house, Dave and Enka, two bunnies at my Mom’s house, Picket and Midnight, and one cat at my Mom’s, Charlee.
This is my first time ever blogging, and I’m super excited to share my experiences with you!

Happy blogging!
