A cute movie to see this week, especially for the kids, is Antz. My nephew David, came along to see his “aunt” in the movie. After the movie he said, “She was too big to fit through the hole of the ant hill.” In this ant-imatted film, a worker-ant named “Z”, meets a Princess-ant named Bela, in an ant bar – I’m sure you figured that out- and falls in love with her. He is so infatuated with Bell that he changes places with a soldier-ant so that he can see the princess the next day. After marching past the Queen, Z learns that the soldier-ants are being sent out to wage war against their neighboring enemy – the Termites! Surprisingly enough, skinny, scrawny, little worker-ant Z is the only survivor. He returns to the colony where he is greeted as a hero – until they find out he is a worker-ant. Moments before he was to be killed for his deception, he kidnaps the princess and escapes the wrath of the colony. Wait – it’s really going to get good. W hile on the outside, Z and the princess discover “Insectopia.” Largely defined as a garbage can full of unwanted food and insects with discerning palettes. Sounds corny, doesn’t it? During a gorge-fest, the princess begins to fall in love with Z when she is suddenly whisked away and taken back to the colony by a high-ranking soldier-ant. Of course, Z follows in hot pursuit and uncovers a conspiracy to kill the queen and all the worker ants. Okay it still sounds corny, but at least I wasn’t bitten. This movie is funny and the special affects were great according to my nephew. The plot was for kids, but some of the lines were for adults. I enjoyed the movie and give it a B rating. David said it was cool!

This movie has been given a G rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
