For April 24th- Dolphin Tale

What this is: Another misguided attempt to make a quick buck off of family consumerism.  A true story about some dolphin that lost its tail in an accident, and the kid who saves it’s life.

Story/Writing: 1/2

A cookie-cutter plot with some modern touches that make it watchable.

Acting: 1.5/2

Most of the cast is okay, but thankfully Morgan Freeman comes to save the day about halfway through.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

Pretty cool sets, and I would imagine that the whole thing was all done on location.  I feel like there may have been a few chances lost for some cool shots, though.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Surprisingly good animation effects for some of the dolphin scenes that didn’t involve the animal itself.

Misc: 0/2

Unredeeming.

VERDICT: 5.5/10

You’ll see it if you want to.

P.S.- Check out the new schedule!  I reordered some stuff in May because of Netflix disc turnaround times.
