  1. I haven't heard of Happy - will definitely check it out. I'm thinking I need to take my great-nieces to Frozen; it's been years since I had a good excuse to go to a princess movie!

    1. I think you'll enjoy Happy, Lisa. Frozen is a great one all can enjoy.

  2. I think I mentioned previously that Practical Magic is one of my favorite movies. In its case, I loved it much more than the book. I also loved Something Wicked... very creepy.

    1. The book was a lot different. It's harder to show magical realism in movies and have it go mainstream. But I enjoyed the movie a lot better as well.

  3. Just reserved Happy at the library! I liked Zero Dark Thirty too. I saw Practical Magic a bazillion years ago and thought it was good, but I tend to thank that with most movies that Sandra Bullock is in ;)
