Why I'm OK with death in children's movies

At first it is disturbing: Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Finding Nemo, The Little Mermaid...no mothers. Most people notice the trend of parents (especially mothers) dying in children's movies when they introduce the classics to their children.…

The movies we watch

I have a confession to make: I really can't watch the movie Planes again. Or Cars. I've seen those movies way too many times. And, seeing as how I didn't really enjoy them the first time, each subsequent viewing has torn away a piece of my sanity.



But they are my son's favorite movies. And…

And the World Sighed and Hurt a Little More

Yesterday when news of Robin Williams' death popped up in my feed I felt an incredible emptiness in my core. Despite the fact that I usually hold this kind of sadness for those closest to me, those I knew in real life, there's a deep anguish that feels like a web of energy amplified by the mere existance of 'movies' and 'internet,' of places like 'facebook' where each of my friends and acquiantences is sharing the moment to acknowledge the loss and power of one amazing individual. One person…

Honey, please pass the popcorn

So, last week, we were watching movies because we were sick. This week, my husband and I are watching movies to help our marriage.

Yeah, that didn't really seem to make sense to me, either.…

Bring on the Weekend

I cannot be the only one…who loves a Friday. I love the feeling of knowing that I have two days ahead of me sans alarm clock, not freezing in the kindergarten line up first thing in the morning, and having an extra set of hands to help me with the distinguished Sonny Boy.



Ah, the possibilities, maybe I’ll take the dog for an extra long walk while listening to one of my favorite podcast, like Keith and the Girl or Adam Carolla Show, and have one of those, "laugh out loud alone in…

PG-13 movies found to be just as violent as R-rated movies

On June 8, 1984, my mom took my brother and me to see Gremlins. It was a birthday present for me (thanks, Mom!). I loved the scenes with the cute little mogwai Gizmo, and I even…

Movies About Teachers Really Piss Off Teachers

 

From a former middle school Spanish teacher to a stay at home mom is a bit of a life transition. However, I don't forget the realities of a classroom, and movies that depict teaching sometimes really get me fired up!

This blog post describes some of the problems I have with teachers in movies.

Required Viewing for Parents: “Bully” Directed by Lee Hirsch



The film opens as a father watches home movies of a sweet baby boy who grows into a happy toddler before our eyes. He grows into a little boy and then a middle-schooler. As we watch the boy play and clown for the camera, his father describes him, but somberly and (we slowly come to realize) in past tense. We immediately recognize the…

The Succulent Wives' Dress the Oscar Nominees

We’re girls. We love the movies. We love the Academy Awards. Well, not really. We put up with them because we get to watch Hollywood glam for three (four?) hours. And, mostly, we get to do lots of backseat drivingstylin’.

Just as we did last year, we thought we’d have some fun…

You Are The Apple Of My Eye

http://www.reanaclaire.com/2011/12/youre-apple-of-my-eye.html

 

She told me that she wanted to watch the movie "You're The Apple Of My Eye" very badly... and since yesterday was the last day of her finals, I allowed her to watch it with her friends... Her friend managed to get the tickets but it was for the 10.30pm schedule, that means I have to go and fetch her after midnight!



Gosh, it was…

Maybe at Christmas, everyone wants a happy ending

I have a confession to make: I'm addicted to the Hallmark Channel.

 

Oh, not all the time. In fact, the channel has been available to me all year and I didn't even know it. But something happens to me around Christmas. I get ... softer. Sappier, even. I want cute stories. I want happy endings. I want everything tied up with a bow and a smile in 90 minutes.

 

It's so out of character, it's alarming.

 

"WHAT are you watching?" my husband said as he…
