Mid-year printed edition: ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ wins Colonial Oscar as most popular movie of 2012


COLONIAL SCHOOL — “Wreck-It Ralph” was the No. 1 movie of 2012 in Colonial School, according to the first-ever Oscar survey of students by the Colonial Times.

“Dolphin Tale” came in second place in the Colonial Oscars, while “Princess and the Popstar” was third place. “The Hunger Games” finished in fourth place and “Skyfall” fifth. These are the most loved movies in Colonial School.

Ava Pedorella, a third grader, said Colonial’s top film was great because “the little girl Vanellope was cute and funny.”

Brooke Luce, first grade, opted for “Princess and the Popstar,” the No. 3 film in our survey, “because the Princess and the Popstar make each other like each other.”

In interviews, students also named older moves they liked a lot.

“My favorite movie is ‘Back to the Future’ because a boy saves his dad by going in a time machine,” said Sabine Bushong, a Kindergartner.

Peyton Kerr, also Kindergarten, said, “‘Star Wars: Return of the Jedi’ because Luke turns into a Jedi.”

Favorite movies varied a lot by grade.

Here are the winning movies by class: “Skyfall” (5H), “Wreck It Ralph” (KM, 1A, 1H, 4C, 4G, 5V), “Dolphin Tale” (2S, 2G, 3D, 3L, 3K), “Princess and the Popstar” (KH, 1C) and “The Hunger Games” (4M).
