Family Movie Day

We hadn't been to the movies in a while, so with a few shows out that actually looked interesting we took the family to the movies.

The boys saw Rango(PG). The girls saw Red Riding Hood(PG-13). Ian and I saw Paul(R).

From their reviews, Rango was good. Nicholas wanted to see Red Riding Hood with the girls but we said no so he pouted a good bit about that. Oh well, Jonathon enjoyed himself. The girls didn't understand why Red Riding Hood was panned by the critics. They did say it had a very Twilight feel to it (same director, even some of the same actors), so that probably didn't help. Paul could almost have been a great kids movie, aside from the ridiculous amount of bad language and a few scenes that could easily have been cut. The sad bit was the language was unnecessary to the story, but I guess Simon Pegg and Nick Frost didn't want their name on anything child friendly? It's too bad because adults would have flocked to the movie without the language anyway. It was geeky, funny and sweet and I think my kids would get a kick out of all the geekiness alone.
