Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen once again held on to the top spot at the box office this past weekend but shared the title with another great movie, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.  Both earned an estimated $42.5 million over the July 4th weekend!  I'm a big fan of both Transformers and Ice Age so it was a fun weekend here!    I've been reading everywhere that this Transformers sequel is the "worst-reviewed movie to ever make the $400 million club."  Well that just goes to show you what the critics like and what the mass movie-going population like are completely different.  Who cares what the critics say!  If that many people are going to see the movie then they must be really wrong on this one!  We loved it.  My son is a huge Transformer fan and has recruited his dad and I into that same category.  It really is a great movie! However, my all time favorite movie - the one that can make you belly laugh through the whole thing - is Ice Age!  Sid the Sloth is hilarious!!  So it was no surprise to me that this new 3rd sequel Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs did well at the box office.  What's so neat about Ice Age is that even though it's a Disney/Pixar animated series the humor is for children and adults alike.  You never stop laughing! Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is coming out on July 15 and is sure to be a huge hit!  People of all ages just can't seem to get enough of old Harry!  This will be the 6th novel turned big screen hit by J.K. Rowlings.  They're saying this might be just the movie to beat out Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen at the box office.  Well we'll just have to wait and see, won't we! Movies make such a big impact on Halloween that movie costumes are flying off the shelves.  Transformer costumes and Harry Potter costumes will be huge this Halloween.  If you plan on attending the movie premiere of Harry Potter be sure to get all your Harry Potter costume and accessory needs at   Both movies make for great group costumes too!
