Movie Review: Norm of the North (Ster Kinekor)


Rachy’s 4th birthday (which was on the 24th of Jan) celebrations began on the 23rd of January (1 day after the release date of this movie) with a viewing of the new movie Norm of the North.

Splash entertainment definitely made waves with this movie which focuses on a very unique and feisty polar bear who is not only dealing with fitting in, but also with a unique gift – he can talk to humans.

His adventures take us all the way to New York to save the Artic and the story is really held together by 3 very adorable, indestructible little side kicks who literally had me giggling throughout!


Great for kids, entertaining for adults with a feel good element that focuses on family, embracing your uniqueness and doing the right thing.

Lots of adult humour unnoticed to the little ones adds some spark for the parents!

Rachy loved the movie and only really got restless the last 40 minutes or so
which is quite a record. Even then she had her eyes glued to the screen while she climbed all over me!

Great service as always from the Ster Kinekor staff at Cresta Shopping Centre! Take their new special which includes popcorn, candy, a free kids cup and a milkshake (she had the strawberry) instead of the syrupy drink for under R60!

Rachy was dressed to impress, pretty in pink – a princess in every way!!! She nibbled her way through all the popcorn and half the milkshake! Yum!!!


Take your kids to this one. They might even learn a thing or two about the landscape and animals that make up the polar bear’s natural habitat.

Remember to book the love seat!!!

Happy watching!



Mummy/daughter day is a day Rachy and I really look forward to! This time we decided to watch the new kids movie – Blinky Bill at Cresta Mall, Randburg @Sterkinekor.


Ster Kinekor Cresta has probally the friendliest staff around and their Summer Special of a Kids sized popcorn, delicious slushie and choice of either chocolate filled or nut filled M&Ms left Rachy happily dancing her way to our reserved love seat!


Back to the movie – the theatre was constantly filled with laughter. The kids loved the silliness, and any silence was quickly filled by the roaring laughter of the adults at all the hidden humour.


We loved the storyline of family, friendship and never giving up and Rachy chomped and sipped and giggled her way through the entire viewing. Quite a feat for a ants-in-her -pants 3 year old!

Altogether a great day!! Highly recommended for kids (and bigger kids) of all ages!!

Go and see it!
