I don't know about you, but I'm picky about what my kids are exposed to. So picking out movies can be a challenge. My kids are 14, 10 and 7 and so finding something good to watch that's not too mature, but not too G-rated is sometimes difficult.
I also like to know what movies are about and what content are in them, but I don't feel like sitting through all of them first before the family sits down to watch them. (And I really don't have the time.)
To to help other families like my own, who love to sit down together and watch good clean movies, I am adding a Family Movie page to my Family Matters Blog!
I would appreciate feedback of what your family thought about our choices, as well as your own suggestions for us, and other families.
The Family Matters Movie Review/Suggestion Page's future home can be found at the top of this blog under the Family Movie Review tab starting next week..in the meantime here's the first few reviews:
We will start with our top 3 in-house favorites (appropriate for all ages):
- Despicable Me: Flat out funny!!! and we quote much of the movie some nights at dinner , great for boys/girls of all ages ;)
- Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: Great cast, fun animation, terrific real-life-relatable storyline, and the message to girls is awesome!
- Over the Hedge: Wildlife characters with funny personalities, hysterical references to real life society, if it weren't a disc we would've wore it out by now.
