High Above The World of Cars, Flies Planes

Disney’s newest action-packed film, Planes, was released to the public on Friday, August 9th 2013. I’m a huge Disney movie fan and was invited to attend a private advanced screening. I brought the youngest Recess member (and Disney super fan), my three-year-old, to test it’s “entertainment level”. How did it go? Did I visit the restrooms five thousand times in the first thirty minutes? Did I have to remove a fussy child once the popcorn ran out and the sugar wore off? Did I have to beg her to wear the 3D glasses and watch the movie till I was blue in the face? Read on and find out how it went.

Theater or Redbox?

Disney Planes Movie ReviewWhen a friend announces seeing a new movie, my first question is, “Do I go see it or wait to rent?” So naturally when giving a review, I like to give my recommendation on this matter.

How did Planes fare? Theater! Just one more must-see family flick this summer. Planes delivered all the fun and heartwarming feelings you expect from a Disney film. Definitely not a sequel to Cars as this movie soars on it’s own.

Taking a toddler to a 7:30pm movie is a dicey choice, however fueled on soda and sugary fruit snacks, the movie still kept my tiny terror entertained and in her seat. That’s a small victory for any parent. If a movie can keep my active toddler wearing floppy butter-smudged glasses quiet and in her seat without begging for a bathroom break every five minutes – it’s a great movie! Your mileage may vary; I got off easy!


3D or Skip it?

I say splurge on 3D this go around. I prefer seeing Disney films in 3D because the animation is done so well I forget I’m wearing the silly glasses. Disney 3D gives you not just a movie but the whole experience. You really get the feeling of zooming up and over which lends to the movies charm.
