This month’s movie is Dumb and Dumber.
This month’s movie is The Crow.
On Devil’s Night, musician Eric Draven and his fiancée are killed by a group of thugs. One year later Eric comes back to life, and with the aid of a mystical crow, takes revenge on the gang and their leader.
This month’s movie is Birders: The Central Park Effect.
This month’s movie is Taken 2.
While traveling in Istanbul, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wife are kidnapped by the family of the villains he defeated in Taken. Using his “particular set of skills” he must save himself and his family.
Cooper’s favorite parts of the movie were the two scenes with the budgies. The budgies are the true heroes of the movie – by following the sound of their chirps, Mills is able to find the building in which his wife is held captive.
This month’s movie is What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
This month’s movie is The Life of Birds.
The Life of Birds is a 10 episode BBC documentary presented by the wonderful David Attenborough. The series travels the globe and explores the many facets of bird life. Flight, gathering food, communication, mating and rearing offspring and survival are just some of the topics discussed in this informative and entertaining series. Cooper was not allowed to watch the somewhat disturbing “Meat Eaters” episode in case it would give her nightmares.
And this budgie quoted Hamlet. Cooper was disappointed though, that the budgies only appeared in only 45 seconds of this ten hour series. Especially because budgies are so fascinating. Perhaps one day there will be a BBC series on the life of budgies…
This month’s movie is Bye Bye Birdie.
Cooper was not happy with this movie. Bye Bye Birdie is not about birds at all – it is about people. Who cares! But there was plenty of music and singing, which Cooper likes. One of the songs even mentions a hummingbird and a nightingale.
This month’s movie is Mr. Popper’s Penguins
Mr. Popper’s Penguins is about a workaholic in New York City who inherits a penguin (he acquires even more penguins when trying to return the first one). While the penguins interfere with his job, they bring him closer to his estranged family.
Cooper’s favorite parts of the movie were when the penguins slide down the aisle of the Guggenheim museum and when Captain (a penguin) flies with the help of a kite. She also liked that the boy Mr. Popper’s daughter has a crush on was named “Cooper” (even though Cooper is a girl’s/budgie’s name).
Dewey’s favorite parts of the movie were when the penguins pooped.
Ozzie thought Mr. Popper’s Parakeets would have made a better movie.
This month’s movie is Bill and Coo.
Bill and Coo (made in 1948) is a cute little movie about a small town made up of birds. When the “Black Menace” (a crow) terrorizes the town, it is up to Bill (a lovebird) to save his sweetie, Coo, and the rest of the townfolk (or townflock, as it were).
This month’s movie is Mars Attacks!
In Mars Attacks! flying saucers land on Earth, but do the martians come in peace? Hardly. This alien invasion movie is humorous and quirky, and Cooper loved it. Her favorite part of the film was the exploding budgie.
