Contest: Bolt goodies

posted by Nell Minow

Have a “Bolt” fan in your house? The first person to send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Bolt” in the subject line will get some “Bolt” goodies — a wall calendar and playing cards. I will also throw in another dog-movie-related treat. Good luck!

    M.M.
    Have you reviewed “Bolt” yet (I saw nothing in the list to the left)? I was all set to dismiss it as simply a quick ‘n easy holiday film so Mom & Dad can shop. But then I read a couple fo reviews that were far better than I expected. As one animation fan to another, what is your sense of “Bolt”? It may be one I go see with my college-aged kids. But I would like to know your thoughts first.

    You can always search for reviews in the search box or through the title index. I did review “Bolt” and it is here: http://blog.beliefnet.com/moviemom/2008/11/bolt.html
    If you get a chance, see it in 3D. It is amazing!

    OK, my face is crimson with embarassment. Not only did I read your review, I commented on it. Argh. My only excuse is feeble – I have had a cold for the past week and my head feels like it is in a mitten. OK, I will go see the movie – maybe even in 3-D. I hope my daughter is willing to go with her old man.
