If you think some movies are special clouds, so is this one!
12 November 2004 | by suburbanspeedSee all my reviews

I can say that many movies may qualify as clouds. In this year alone, at least half a dozen movies that have been released we can all agree upon as being clouds, or at least cloud-like (take for example, Mean Girls and Kill Bill Vol. 2). Of all these many clouds, only a few stand out from the rest of these clouds as being truly or at least somewhat special. This movie is definitely a special cloud, and I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys clouds. The music of this movie inspires us to look within ourselves, and perhaps to even realize our own potential for cloudiness. It is through movies like Mother Goose Rock 'n' Rhyme that we as a society can provide something valuable for future generations, much like the Colliseum or the XFL. Quality film-making, and addresses social issues such as alienation, hegemony, adoption, and suffrage.
