Me the Movie Critic
It's been a few months since I've seen a movie in the movie theaters. So I'm going to take this post to write about the movie Elizabeth, Henry & I went to see today. The big boys decided to stay home & Hop ended up cutting the grass. I think going to the movies is more fun, but hey, if I'm not cool enough to be seen with, I can handle it...maybe.
We went to see The Avengers. Yes, I know it came out in May. Yes, I know it had a great opening weekend, but it's been a little crazy & I wanted to be able to enjoy the time and well as the movie. It's the whole experience I wanted, and I got it.
I have to say I loved the movie. It was long, but they didn't compromise the story line to cut corners to force it to make sense. The creators did a great job of setting this movie up in: Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America. I really appreciated that when I was watching the movie today. It had some serious parts & it had some comedic relief. It also has some very nice looking guys that I got to watch for two and a half hours. :)
I've always liked seeing movies with my kids, which usually means I'm watching a children's or tween movie. Know that there is violence in the movie and a handful of swear words, but no bombs. Moms, you know what I mean.
If you have tweens, go see this movie with them. It has great underlying themes that are good for tweens to see. Heck, they're good for anyone to see: teamwork, sacrifice, truthfulness, standing up for what you believe in, realizing your choices have repercussions, loving your brother even if they make a huge mistake, and not making the guy who can turn into a big green angry super muscly guy, well...angry. Yes, I did get these themes from a movie, based on a comic book, and it wasn't presented in a hokey way. Yea! This is a movie I would go see again with my children, and we will probably end up owning it in some form as soon as it comes out. Go see it, you'll love it. :)
So, from me, the movie critic, GO see The Avengers! You'll not regret it.
Celebrating Life & an afternoon at the movies!
