Movie Monday @ Messy Mommy


9: A rag doll that awakens in a post-apocalyptic future holds the key to humanity's salvation. PG-13

Hubby has been waiting forever to see this movie. I didn't actually watch it because I was busy reading blogs. HOWEVER, Otter was absolutely scared to death by the time this movie was over. I mean I've NEVER seen him like that before. He's seen all the super hero movies, including Dark Knight (please don't turn us into social services,) and if that's not scary I don't know what is! He was actually in tears at the end. IN TEARS PEOPLE! He slept with us that night and woke SEVERAL times in the night. Craziest thing I've ever seen! So ya I definitely wouldn't recommend it! Hubby said he liked it but it was a bad movie. Whatever that means.


The Cutting Edge 3: Chasing the Dream: A male figure skater pairs up with a female hockey player after his partner gets injured. PG-13

Hubby picked it out and I was thinking it was going to be exactly like The Cutting Edge but opposite gender. It did have some similarities but it was a lot better than I expected. The story line was good and it's a movie the entire family enjoyed. Raven LOVES ice skating. It's available on Netflix Watch Instantly and I would recommend it.


Up: By tying thousands of balloon to his home, 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America. Right after lifting off, however, he learns he isn't alone on his journey, since Russell, a wilderness explorer 70 years his junior, has inadvertently become a stowaway on the trip. PG

FINALLY saw this movie. It was super cute. But I have to admit I was slightly let down after such an awesome and moving beginning. Good cute humor. Would definitely recommend.

I have this issue with movies where I analyze to much. Like, "Yeah right there's no way he can climb that rope he's 6." And then I remember the house is pulled from its foundation by a bunch of balloons. Not like it's realistic or anything. I say things like that all the time during movies. Drives Hubby CRAZY!


Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home: Jesse becomes reunited with Willy three years after the whale's jump to freedom as the teenager tries to rescue the killer whale and other orcas from an oil spill. PG

I can't believe I didn't know this movie existed. I think I had heard of it but thought it was one of those sequels that has nothing to do with the first movie, like Dumb and Dumberer or Home Alone 3. It has the same actors and Jesse's brother, Elvis, joins the fam. He's a riot. I enjoyed the movie. It just amazes me how they can get whales to "act!" {And not pull people into tanks by their ponytails.} You can watch this movie on Netflix Watch Instantly and I would recommend if you enjoyed Free Willy. {No Michael Jackson theme song this go around.}

My girls watched WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE and Cloudy with a chance of meatballs this week and CWACOM- terrified them at the end when the guy in a meatball blew up. He does come back like hooray, he's not dead momnet but they were still tramatized at first.


And my 5, 8, AND 12 you were SOBBING through the ending of WTWTA.

No problem watching movies with kids. Last weekend I watched "The Godfather" and "The Knights Templar" with my eight year old boy. Some scary scenes, for sure, but more important is that he learnt something about both Italian/American mafia and religious wars >:)
