January Monthly News

Happy 2013!!!
My resolution this year is to keep trying to be a better human being. Be more compassionate, patient and loving. Keep learning and listen more.
Good goals for any person to strive for.
I also want to read at least 150 books. I read 137 last year and feel down about that since it's much lower than the previous years. I know it's good by any standards, but I want to read more.
My blogging goals are to comment more often, since I've been slipping, and find more blogs to read. Meaning the newbie blogs. Show support for the newbie, since I used to be one, that's my thinking....
What are your personal and blogging goals, if any?
You'll also notice in the monthly news that I'm keeping track of genres read instead of page count. It's the one true way to see which genre is my favorite or most chosen.

RATED PG

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
