DVD Review: "Hannah Montana: The Movie"

This week, "Hannah Montana: The Movie" comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray. However you feel about Miley at the moment, the flick stands alone as a funny, sweet, entertaining story that we can all relate to in some way...even if we don't have a secret pop star identity. On those days when you're not sure who you're becoming or what matters most to you, it might help to tag along with Miley on her trip back home to Tennessee to reconnect with her roots (and herself). And we just love the movie's soundtrack, especially the awesome single "The Climb", the video of which, along with deleted scenes and giggly bloopers, is among the DVD's bonus features.

Here's some more from Miley on chilling out and staying in touch with what she loves best.


What would you get up to on the perfect day?

At the moment, the perfect day would involve a sleep-in! I'm a night owl who loves to stay up late - but then I find myself with a 6am start time and I'll end up having only two hours sleep. That's why my perfect day would involve sleeping in and then hanging out by the pool with my mum.

What's the best way to chill out?

I love being at home - especially when I'm out by the pool. We have a waterfall in our backyard and it's beautiful. It's lovely to sit out there alone. In fact, I like anywhere I can just be alone. I love being alone!

What else do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to ride my bike and I love reading. I also like to watch movies and stay up late. Staying up late is great because I find it really relaxing. It's the only time when everyone else is asleep, so I can have some alone time.

Did you enjoy traveling to Nashville to shoot the "Hannah Montana" movie?

That was awesome! I loved going home to Nashville because it's a wonderful place and it's where I grew up. I really enjoyed the tranquility of everything there. I loved the peace and the quiet. It was amazing.

So how would you spend your ideal day in Nashville?

Ooh, I like this question! I'd just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. You know what? I really wish I had more time to spend in Nashville. Filming the movie was the longest I had been back since I left, but I am hoping to move back there at some point.

Let's get back to your favorite obsessions...What was the last book you read?

I've just finished reading a book called Catcher In The Rye. It's a really great book. If you haven't heard of it, check it out. It's by JD Salinger and it's a bit of a classic.

What makes it such a good book?

It's a really good story. Plus, when I was reading the book, I thought that I was a little similar to the main character. He over-thinks everything and I'm like that.

What do you over-think?

In the book, this guy is obsessed with a girl called Jane - and I can be exactly like that when it comes to boys. I'll be thinking, 'I really hope they like me.' And I'll stress and stress and stress about it. 

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

Hopefully I'll still be working in ten years. I love doing films, so I hope I'm doing them for years to come - but I also hope that I've become a bit more settled.

What do you mean by that?

Well, my life is so crazy at the moment, so it would be great to have a more normal life in ten years. I'd love to be doing movies on and off - but I hope I get the chance to spend a lot of time with my family, too. That would be very cool indeed.
