Arrietty-DVD-Cover-2010This great family movie combines two of my favourite subject into one wonderful charming movie that just about everyone will love. Take a the classic story of The Borrowers by Mary Norton, and splice it with the talents of Studio Ghibli, and you’ll have one amazing adventure, and see it through the eyes of a 4-inch tall teen, Arrietty Clock (Bridgit Mendler).

Arrietty lives with her parents, Pod (Will Arnett) and Homily (Amy Poehler) under an old house, yet upscale house. This house is being kept up by a little old eccentric housekeeper, Hara (Carol Burnett) for the family. The youngest son has been brought out to the country home for some relaxation, as he has a heart condition, and will be having surgery soon. During the night of Arrietty’s first “borrowing”, the boy, Shawn sees her, but not her father. Arietty is fearful of humans, and so she should be, as generations of Borrowers have disappeared when discovered by humans before her. Shawn (David Henrie), however, is kind, but curious about this little person, and starts bringing her gifts and notes to find out more about her and her kind.

Man of the Year : Elections are made to be broken.

Even though this movie came out five years ago, its satirical vibe still rings true, especially with the 2012 election coming up. Tom Dobbs (Robin Williams) is a pundit that the public loves that has had it with party politics and has become very successful at making fun of the messed up system that is currently in Washington. It is a modern day fable, filled with very human monsters, and as much intrigue as any film about Ancient Rome, but somehow, this is Hollywood, where, even in America’s capitol, somehow, if you can get past the corruption, you can find that happily ever after, once the media is done tearing you apart.
