Wonder 

 

I enjoy thought provoking movies. I also enjoy movies that have a good message, and a good point. Wonder does that in spades. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was given the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital version of Wonder. The boys had this movie in one of our Unboxing videos. That video can be seen right here. They had a blast doing it too. We have a lot of fun with all of the videos we do here at Family Friendly Gaming.

Auggie Pullman is a boy born with some problems with his face. It took twenty-six surgeries to get his face closer to a normal human being. Some of those operations so he could see, breath, and hear. He has been home schooled up until the fifth grade. That is what is middle school in this movie. Wonder is also based on a book. As far as I can tell this is not based on a real or true story.

The issues families can have with Wonder are violence, bullying, bad language, and more. I was very disappointed in how weak the father figure was in Wonder. This was extremely disappointing. Wonder shows its support of Halloween and tries to belittle Christmas. This offends me on so many levels. I understand why Auggie likes it so much - he can hide behind a mask.

Wonder shows how kids tease one another. Nothing new there. Wonder does show how in our current age bullying is attacked by the principal. Although a two day suspension for what all he did was pretty low in my opinion. The teachers looked pretty weak in Wonder as well. I went to middle school in the seventh grade. That is when it started for me. My kids went to middle school in the sixth grade. So it felt odd that Wonder showed it starting in the fifth grade. Plus there were no class pictures taken in middle school. There were yearbooks. Those are just a couple of things I noticed while watching Wonder.

The older sister in Wonder is very neglected. I felt bad for her. She acted out a little bit and got a boyfriend. She also got her friend back. The story in Wonder is told from the viewpoint of a variety of different characters. Too bad the father was left out. Is that part of the war on men? The family in Wonder is shown as very loving and caring. Auggie gets a friend in school after letting him cheat off of his pop quiz. Wonder teaches we all have problems.

The main lesson I got from Wonder is how wrong bullying is. I wish liberals would learn that lesson since they have been bullying people for as long as I can remember. Owen Wilson had plenty of funny moments in Wonder. Julia Roberts plays an interesting character in Wonder. She is part father and part mother in this movie. She eventually finishes her thesis. I was not clear on what that got her though.
