Bridge to Terabithia


SPOILERS!!! (DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE YET!!!)

(3/22/07) Well, we went to go see "Bridge to Teribithia" last night and I have to say, that was the most I have ever cried about a movie. It started out pretty good but about a 1/3 of the way through the boy (Jess) is invited to go to the art museum with the kids' music teacher. Before that he was just some nobody without any friends who always got pushed around. Then Leslie (AnnaSofia Robb) moved next door to him and she noticed his drawing abilities. They become friends and create the imaginary world of Terabithia. (Picks up at intro)When he and the teacher are pulling out onto the driveway, he takes a long look out at her house and the teacher asks if there was anything he forgot. He turned and said no. When he got back home, his parents and 4 sisters where having a fit. They thought he was dead. When he asked why, they told him that Leslie had drowned in the creek when the rope that they had used to swing across broke. He flipped out and was acting as if she was still alive when they went to pay their respects. It didn't seem to sink in yet.


When his little sister Maybelle, tried to follow him to Terabithia after Leslie's death, he shoved her down and she went crying to their dad. When he was there, he saw the "dark master", chasing him. It was his dad and then it sank in about Leslie and it all being fairytale, but he still believed. After he saw that her parents where moving, he asked if he could have the leftover wood. He built a very nice looking bridge (hint, hint) and made it up to Maybelle by taking her to Terabithia, she was made the princess and he was the king. END SPOILERS!!!


Once you started crying, you couldn't stop. I cried for at last an hour. Just really depressing. I am pretty 50/50 about it. It was a good movie, I just don't like crying, so yeah...


I got the contacts in in under 10 minutes!!! WHOOP!!! YAY!!! We are getting the goats, my mom refuses to have anything to do with them and I've official lost count of how many times they've both said that. ;p I WILL take care of ALL MY pets. (This excludes Jake and Misty; I take care of them too! Mom feeds my horse and dog though, so it's even.) I get to scoop the litter box, feed in the evenings, and fill the food bowls when they are empty. Who says I don't help with my pets? I've been spending a lot more time with my horse. We've been getting along better too!


Well, I'm gonna go build a hutch thingy for the goats. I will get pictures of them soon. Promise. So, talk to y'all later!


God Bless and be safe!

sounds like a good movie, we can rent it when I get home. Ok, let's see if we get the animal count right. You take care of all your pets, excluding Misty and Jake, and mom feeds Twobit and Sunshine, that leaves, Marie and Simba, hmmmm, all of them?

yea, me and mom take turns feeding the horses. I feed the dogs and cats by filing up their bowls and she waters them since I always spill it all over the floor. ;p There for I feed all of them. Get it?

Nice review - eventhough you gave away the ending. You're supposed to "tease" us with the story. Yes, you do help with the pets, but it would be very nice if you would do it without having to be asked. Love you
