Ramona and Beezus

One very anticipated family film dedicated to the dynamics of a relationship between a father and his middle daughter, Ramona and Beezus, starring Selena Gomez as big sister Beezus and Joey King as Ramona Quimby, comes from the Beverly Cleary series of books about Ramona Quimby and her sister Beezus and the dynamics of their relationship. The book, titled, Beezus and Ramona, was written back in the 1950s.

Beverly Cleary's Ramona series has obviously passed the test of time as generation after generation falls in love with the story of Ramona and her sister Beezus. Cleary has other series which includes the Ralph S. Mouse trilogy of which there were a series of films for as well.

Although the film version of the story had some significant differences from the original book by a similar name, it adequately portrayed the ever-changing Ramona as she learned how to interact better with friends and family. Ramona's keen imagination was one of the things that made this film enjoyable.

This film teaches that without imagination, life would be a bore.

I personally give it two thumbs up and can hardly wait until its DVD release later this year.

Welcome to the Media Review!

This is a welcome message to establish what this blog is about. Anything! Reviews of movies, DVDs, CDs, music, television shows, theater plays, concerts, books, websites, products, magazines, etc. And I want this blog to be a collaborative blog meaning that I don't want to be the only author on here. After all, one of the best ways for people to learn about media that they might be interested in and even like is through other people. Write on here as often or as little as you like. Send a copy to me if you want and I'll edit it and send it back for you to post. But this blog is not my blog. It's everyone's blog!

Only one rule: Keep it PG in language and no gluten free product reviews as I have a dedicated blog for that. I said one rule, but here's another: Keep it civil.
