Journey to the Center of the Earth is about three people and their names are Trevor Anderson, his nephew Sean and the guide person is Hannah. All three of them were looking for a passage to go to the center. All of them had an adventures but once they made it and they were exploring they realized that it was getting very hot so they built a raft to go across the water. When they were in the middle of the ocean they saw small fish with big sharp teeth and all of them were biting the fish but at the same time the wind was starting to pick up. They saw a huge fish eating a small fish and then a gust of wind blew the sail and the rope got untied and Sean got the rope but the wind was strong and it took Sean away.

Stick It

4.5/5 Stars
Movie is amazing; at first starts off slow and you don’t expect anything like it. Some language used in the movie is not for young kids, but the story line is great. It shows that not everything is as it seems. The actors in the movie made their start here and then went on to other, more recent, more world known movies and/or TV series. The actress who plays Haley is now a main character in Rookie Blue and one her best friends in the movie is now playing Emmett Cullen from the Twilight series. Overall, a great laugh and amazing movie, no matter the language.
