    Descendants was the typical Disney Channel movie. With the same spunky characters and classic plot, it was no different than the other Disney Channel movies I've seen. Of course the music was spectacular, but it followed the same frame: Girl is forced to do something she doesn't want to do. Girl meets boy. Girl falls in love with boy. Girl doesn't know who she really is. Typical, Disney. Typical. This movie would be more entertaining for younger audiences. Like other Disney movies, it included some themes that the audience might not understand fully. Ben asks Mal if she loves him, and they'd known each other for only about a week. You may say that lots of Disney cartoon movies have the same kind of theme, but using real actors and having the audience connect with the theme, this may give people the wrong message. Also, the settings could have been far more distinctive. In the Isle of the Lost, really pay attention to the town. I didn't see any other villains. Mal stated in the prologue that all of the villains had been banished to the Isle of the Lost; how come I only saw Jafar, Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella Devil, and their children? Everyone else was a normal person, and why would they be banished? This just didn't really make sense, honestly.

    Rump is a story about a young boy, an outcast. With a name like his, no wonder he is constantly teased by the village boys. He lives with his grandmother, who grows weaker by the day. One day, Rump realizes something special about himself - he has the ability to turn straw into gold. But this isn't the old Rumpelstiltskin story you remember. While reading this book, you'll be invited into a world that you might have never even recognized yet. You'll follow along as Rump embarks on his quest to break his curse destined by the thread. Enjoy! :)

    fade's movie review was featured in Sing.
    'Sing' tells the story of Buster Moon, an odd, witty koala that had adored theatre ever since he was a young joey. When his father took him to see a musical starring Miss Nana Noodleman as a joey, he fell in love with theatre. Ever since then, his father spent hours each day washing cars to save up money to buy Moon a theatre of his own. But suddenly and abruptly, Moon's theatre comes upon hard times and money is scarce; Moon decides to hold a talent show - which would hopefully be more successful than his previous shows - to raise ticket money to help his theatre to rise once again. One of the things I loved about this movie was the way it told the story of each talent show contestant before you truly heard their voice. Johnny is an orangutan, an outcast. His father belongs to a gang, robbing banks and terrorizing the city, and tries to convince Johnny to do the same. But Johnny doesn't enjoy stealing from others; what he truly loves to do is to sing. Johnny struggles to find what he really, truly wants to do in his life, and he is torn between two: Singing or family life. Rosita the pig is a busy mother and housewife, with twenty-five little piglets to take care of, feed, and dismiss to school each day. However, she loves to sing, and is awfully good at it. But her husband pays hardly any attention to her raw talent, and neither do any of her piglets. It has been her dream to sing for very long, and she desperately wants to let her family know that. Ash is a porcupine, who sings rock with her boyfriend. But as they get more gigs for singing, her boyfriend continues to write the songs and never let Ash pitch in. Ash longs for the spotlight, for to one day be able to step out of her boyfriend's shadow and shine. Meena is an elephant who has a very deep passion to sing, but a very bad case of stage fright. She hopes to one day be able to step out of her fear and stand in front of a crowd and really SING. But she finds it hard to do this with her family constantly talking about how amazing a singer she is, and making her want to do it even more. Mike is a crooning mouse with a gift for the sax and a great voice. With a suit and tie, a hint of selfishness, and enough confidence to step in front of a stage, Mike's performance will definitely be something to remember. Throughout 'Sing,' you will see the true message that everyone has a story, and everyone has their own talent in their own quirky way. I enjoyed this movie and I hope you do too.
