...on the road again...

This one goes out to all you kids out there. No matter what age you may be, if you can still enjoy a nice cold glass chocolate milk and the occasional animated movie, this one is for you.

Yes, I realize that because I only have a few short months left of my teenage years, I may seem a bit old for cartoons, but let me let you in on a little secret: you’re never too old.

Miley Cyrus - the downfall of the movie

Miley Cyrus - the downfall of the movie

Bolt, for example, may be a cartoon, but it is also cinematic genius and the work of some very famous, world-renowned actors (and no, I am not talking about Miley Cyrus). John Travolta, Nick Swardson and Greg Germann all join the film’s cast to become animated and test out their voice acting abilities.

In fact, many very popular actors have decided to go cartoon, making “kid” movies almost impossible to stay away from. Jack Black’s rendition of Kung Fu Panda was awe-inspiring, as was basically the entire cast’s performance in Madagascar (and from what I hear, Madagascar 2). The new movie Monsters vs. Aliens with Seth Rogen and Reese Witherspoon looks like a gem that I plan to see as soon as I find someone comfortable enough in their maturity to see it with me.

While Bolt (and basically all animated movies) may seem a bit predictable, it is the journey that matters, not the destination, even if you knew where it would end up within the first few minutes. But come on, what is a cartoon without a happy, yet somewhat predictable, ending? And if you can learn to tune out Miley Cyrus’s voice for a 96-minute time span, the movie is really quite enjoyable. It’s a tough task considering her somewhat manly and fake sounding southern draw, but worth it, nonetheless. I found Bolt’s journey back to his loved ones comforting in a Homeward Bound-esque way. It gave me hope that if my dog ran away and somehow ended up several states away, she too would be able to sniff her way back home.
