Frosty Bees

On my flight we were treated to the trivial Ramona and Beezus (2010), a film I know I wouldn't have watched any other way. I can appreciate that this is a film made for a much younger audience but it's disappointing that American Airlines would choose this for in-flight. It plays more like a movie made for TV and Ramona's antics are grating. 4.5/10

Now in San Jose, during some channel surfing I landed upon the start of Jack Frost (1979), a Rankin and Bass stopmo that I don't recall having seen. It's pretty good too! Basically Jack Frost falls in love with a human girl and wants to human. He's granted his wish if he can complete tasks given to him before the spring thaw. There is an evil King, Kubla Kraus, that stirs up trouble that forces Jack to resume his powers to help the village. Very enjoyable and swell watching with my girlfriend who was also amused. 7/10
