You guys, we’ve almost made it! The shortest day of the year is behind us, and we are creeping closer to spring every day. If you’re looking for a movie to brighten up your day (or serve as a centerpiece for a hot date), there are several new releases this month to keep you occupied. If you’d rather stay under the covers, though, check out one of this month’s recommended reads.
Movie: Computer animated movies keep getting better and better, and Escape from Planet Earth represents Rainmaker Entertainment’s first foray in to the field. This movie promises lots of laughs and silly sight-gags as it tracks Gary — head of mission control for planet Baab’s space exploration program — on his mission to save his brave and bold brother from a mission gone wrong.
Book Soulmate: If you want a silly space novel, look no farther than The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The modern sci-fi classic has crazy plot, hilarious writing, and more in-jokes than you can shake a stick at. It pretty much defies description (or at least it defies my modest writing talent’s ability to describe it), but suffice to say it starts out with one cranky Englander having a very, very bad day.
