Book and Film Challenge Update


The twelfth film I have seen this year was yesterday because my movie buddies, my granddaughters, are back in town. We went to see ParaNorman. I liked it. It was funny in parts but was a movie with a message of tolerance for those who are different from others. Norman is a boy who has the gift of being able to see and talk to dead people. Most people, including the school bully, think of him as a freak. The fat kid in school, however, is his friend and is true and loyal to him.

The town is troubled by the curse of a witch who was hanged many centuries ago and the solution to removing the curse is up to Norman. He faces ghouls and zombies to find out the true problem of the curse and is able to settle the spirit of the girl who was unjustly accused and killed as a witch and saves the town. He makes the town a little more tolerant of people who are a little different than themselves. It was an entertaining movie with a lesson built into it that wasn’t overly preachy. I’d give it three and a half stars. Twelve down, thirteen to go. Don’t know if I’ll make it.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
