This movie made me happy. I think it is a great movie for all ages because there are no scary parts. It is a very creative way of using paper and animation. Paper Touch is bright and colorful. I really loved it, and I'm sure you will too.
Guacamole is a very clever film. It shows you how to make something in the kitchen out of things that you don't usually have in your kitchen. I love to cook, and it made me want to go home and make guacamole and eat it with a bag of chips. Lots of fun!
This movie was a little scary. It has no words but tells the story of a little girl who visits her grandma, who spends a lot of time knitting and rocking. She has a dream that seems to come to life, and it scares her. I liked it but would not recommend it for five and under. It was a little scary for me, and I'm seven. The only thing that was not scary is the ending, which was nice and happy.
This is a very cute movie about two dolls that are separated, and what they do to try to find each other. It's a very sweet story, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to put a smile on their face. I loved Lola so much, because it really made me smile and feel happy.
This is a story about characters in a painting that come to life. The artist never finished the painting so some of the characters are not finished, which causes lots of problems for them. Two of them fall in love, but they are not allowed to be together because they are different from each other. This is a very creative movie, with lots of pretty colors, great animation, and I liked it a lot! The best part is how all the characters realized they really could all live together with each other and get along. Kids under five might not understand it, but I loved it, and I'm seven. I would definitely see this again!
