Witch Mountain

We went to see "Race to Witch Mountain" tonight at the Silver Moon Drive In. We enjoyed it. It isn't a remake as some people are saying; it is its own new story, with new characters. It's nothing fancy, just a good ol' Disney family flick. The story was a touch more involved then the originals, much more action then the first two films for sure. Dwayne Johnson does a good job as Jack Bruno the cab driver that gets stuck helping the kids. If you enjoyed the original you'll like this one for sure. One of the key moments for me, (a movie geek) was the two cameos by Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann, their characters are named "Tina" and "Sheriff Antony" (originally they were Tia and Tony). I didn't realize it was Kim Richards till after I saw Ike Eisenmann, because he was instantly recognizable. Nice for a family trip to the movies, as well as a nice addition to the trilogy.

2 and 3/4 out of 4, for good ol' Disney family fun!
