I went to the movies after church today. I saw Eight Below. I’m a dog lover ("mom" to Misty, Tiko, and Poppet), so as soon as I saw the first ads for this movie, I knew I had to see it. I loved it. It was exciting, scary, and occasionally sad. Not to spoil anything, but I about had a heart attack in the middle of the scene with the whale. I won’t say anything more than that. Just be careful and don’t eat popcorn or anything else once you see that whale. Okay?
I give Eight Below a 4 out of 5. Good family fare, although really young children (or grown-ups like me) might be frightened in a few places.
