It took too long to get into the action IMO, and when it finally did there wasnt nearly enough of it... but yeah, it was ok enough.

I have a ton of movies waiting on the DVR now thanks to the HBO/Skinamax free preview weekend last weekend.

I was sick on Friday, so watched "Life of Pi". When it came out, it sounded kind of dumb. However, I thought it was really good. My wife and I also watched "We Bought a Zoo", which was kind of dumb but better than expected (I had zero expectations).

My boys and I also watched "Ted" this weekend. My wife was disgusted but the boys and I all laughed.

I am waaaay behind on newer movies.

Killing Season with De Niro and Travolta. Really good indy flick! Great dialogue between the 2 even when they hunt one another

I'd prefer movies with enough complexity to keep adults entertained, but they've got to be off the beaten path a bit. Classics with some artistic merit are preferred. We're talking a mature (too mature) 6 year old and a 9 year old here. The Hobbit is about as far as I'll go with the six year old as far as adult themes, and I caved on that one in a moment of weakness (I wanted to see the damned thing too, and I figured letting him see it was my best bet).
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Time Bandits

12 Years a Slave.. If you're into that kind of thing, it's worth a watch.

Just saw Walter Mitty.

Best movie I've seen in a long time. Quirky and awkward at times. Hipster sounding soundtrack, but it fit so perfectly with everything. Amazing cinematography.

One of my favorites of the past year. Maybe THE favorite.

Some others they've enjoyed lately:
Escape to Witch Mountain
The Last Mimzy
Air Bud and all the "buddy" movies (groan, I can't stand watching these).


I'm thinking I may hit up all the Miyazaki movies soon. They saw Ponyo when they were younger, but I think they'd like all of them. My older child is obsessed with movies (like on the verge of Asperger's obsessed), so I'd like for him to at least watch stuff that isn't total shit, as he'll sit there and watch Super Buddies, Air Bud, Santa Buddies, and that dreck over and over if I let him, which causes no end of fights about what we're going to watch on family movie nights.
The Princess Bride?

Watched it with my niece. Just like Fred Savage, she acted liked it was going to be stupid, but was hooked 15mins into it.

Mayosaki's great. Last one I saw was secret world of arriety. Cool to see small household objects in his beautiful detail. Princess Monoke can be a tad slow but it's about a boy ninja kind of, boys should love that stuff.

Also

Babe (the pig)
Charlotte's Web
The Muppet movies

I liked the movie, but it didn't blow me away. It's definitely taken a beating in the reviews that I think is grossly over the top in terms of the criticism to the point of hyperbole.

The studio didn't do itself any favors by having a number of prerelease screenings all the way back in early Fall. The bashing via social media from some in those sneak peek showings caught on fire and really killed their own box office showing with such a negative presence circulating for a few months before it was even released.

I love the concept, and think the movie is shot beautifully, but it has some missing pieces, but overall I think it's worth at least a watch and I know I will watch it again at some point.

As for the soundtrack- I think it's spectacular, and one of the best that I instantly identified how much I liked even early into the movie.
