I have my niece and nephew this week, Yay!! They come every summer and stay with us for a week and we always have a blast. Part of our traditions is watching movies together. The first movie that we watched this week is The 5th Wave.
This is the first movie from the book series by Rick Yancey. The premise of the books and movie is that Aliens arrive at earth and start taking out the humans in waves. I have to say that I prefer the book, but that is almost always true for me.
The movie seemed like a very watered down version. The actors were good, but too much of the story line got lost for me.
Don’t get me wrong, if your family enjoys movie time together, it was an enjoyable two hours. Just don’t expect the book! And if you haven’t read the book, you may love it.
I highly recommend the book! Here are the second (The Infinite Sea) and the third in the series.
I haven’t read the third book yet, but it’s on my nightstand! The first two were great.
We watch most of our movies on Vudu, Netflix, or Amazon, because I have an aversion to putting on real clothes to go out in public to rent one from the Redbox.
