Joyful Noise

Joyful Noise By Georgia
   Today I saw Joyful Noise and it was extremely good. I pretty much love all movies with Queen Latifah, so add in Dolly Parton and Keke Palmer and it's a party! This movie was funny and serious at the same time. It follows the story of Vi Rose Hill and her two kids, Olivia and Walter (all devout singers) as they go about their life. Walter had Asperger's Syndrome, and at first tries to hide it. Olivia is a typical Momma's-good-girl who starts to rebel when cute Randy (the loser grandson of Dolly Parton's character, played by Jeremy Jordan) falls for her. As this is all going on, two people die and the church choir loses the semi-finals to go to LA. It has a great ending, is filled with good music, though some cliché lines were delivered. Overall, FOUR AND A HALF STARS!

   Every Friday I will try to present one FBA, though I cannot guarantee I'll do it every Friday. Today the FBA will be for Top Five Heroines of the 2000's. (And I mean fiction heroines) And here they are:
1. Katniss Everdeen (of The Hunger Games trilogy)
2. Hermione Granger (of the Harry Potter series)
3. Gaia Stone (of the Birthmarked Trilogy)
4. Annabeth Chase (of the Percy Jackson trilogy)
5. Katsa (of the Graceling trilogy)
Next week I will be doing the Top Five Worst Heroines! I hope you enjoy my list and take the books into consideration!
