Here are the movies I watched this month, some with the kids and others with Tim. I'm not going to explain what each one is about, but you can click the titles for more info.
We Bought a Zoo
I read the book last month and finally got around to seeing the movie. The movie was fine, but it was nothing like the book at all. Well, other than a family buying a zoo.
STOMP Out Loud
I think the kids watched this four or five times in the week we had it from the library. Such a fun movie!
People have been talking about this movie for so long that I figured I should watch it.
We've seen it before, but the kids wanted to watch it again.
To Market, To Market: To Buy a Fat Pig
Just a random documentary I saw at the library about farmer's markets around the country. Watched it with the kids.
Tim checked this out and I didn't know anything about it, but I watched it with him while ordering curriculum one night. The true story of a 1966 college basketball team with several black players who came against all sorts of racism on their way to the National Championship game. Good flick.
Oregon Experience: Willam Gladstone Steel
A documentary about the man who is referred to as the father of Crater Lake National Park.
A group of sled dogs are left alone in Antarctica and have to fight for survival. The movie goes back and forth between the dogs and their owner, who had to leave them unexpectedly.
This is a documentary about guys who breakdance competitively. Tim and I previewed it with the hope that the boys could watch it later, but a Vegas scene and a bunch of language means that's not going to happen right now. Actually, Silas had trouble falling asleep that night and watched the last part of it with us, but Devon's not going to watch it at all and Silas isn't going to see the whole thing. Bummer, because the guys are amazingly talented and I know our boys would have loved watching all their performances.
Movie night with the kids. They recognized Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins and Maria (Sound of Music), so I was happy.
