Chad and I finally watched "the Last Mimsy" last night. I was amused, to say the least. I actually found the movie quite entertaining (I especially enjoyed recognizing many places near where I grew up). However, the last 10 minutes or so, the acting really went down hill. The actors started to S-L-O-W their speach down, and really e-nun-ciate their words so it was like listening to a poor grade-school play.
I also found this movie to be slightly reminicent of "Escape to Witch Mountain". Maybe I am the only one who remembers the girl who could communicate with her brother simply by thinking of what she wanted to say to him. Or that she could also get animals to do what she wanted by the same method. In "Mimsy" the kids had a conversation while they were in custody, and managed to escape by communicating with cockroaches. Even the music at the end of the movie was similar to what they played in "Escape" whenever the kids were doing something spectacular.
As a side note, anyone remember "the Peanutbutter Solution" movie?
