With everyone home for the holiday, yesterday morning we started with Finding Dory:
While the movie was well worth the price some of the magic from Finding Nemo was lost. It could be that my kids are now 13 years older (grown) and some of the magic of watching a cartoon with them is gone. Once again all three of the girls (wife/daughters) refused to watch it in 3D so I'll have to watch it in a few weeks in 3D.
As a parent of a disabled child, I've got to shout out to both Finding Nemo and Finding Dory for dealing with disabilities and introducing the characters to children.
For the evening movie, we rented 10 Cloverfield Lane for 99 cents OnDemand:
We thoroughly enjoyed the movie, but we did discuss the movie as we watched it with each of us offering opinions as to what was actually going on, so I think "home" audience participation helped this one.
Finally, we watched a Hallmark movie, Every Christmas Has a Story:
Two of my girls (one can't stand them) got me started watching Hallmark and some are surprisingly good. This one was not and another attempt at an actress trying to get her daughter some screen time. I was sitting there thinking this must be somebodies kid when my daughter said the exact same thing while adding a comment about bad acting.
Also, one last comment on plastic surgery. The actress has been in many Hallmark movies the last few years and she looked fantastic. In this one, all I could see is the "work" she has had done, and I can't say it helped her.
