REVIEW:
Lovely illustrations!
In the format of a middle grade book, this fairytale for adults takes you on a journey you won't expect.
The story was fun and I liked the unexpected twist. Martek is my favorite character, so strong and smart he is.
Martek and Marianna are so sweet. It was their story I wanted to read about.
The 'Good VS Evil' thing was just okay for me. Often I thought the story got out of sorts during those parts. Two focal points in one story when all I wanted was the romance.
Not the best fairytale I have ever read, but certainly not the worst either.

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 …
