Don't underestimate your kids!

Mine have loved a lot of the same movies I have. Les Triplettes de Belleville; any Miyazaki epic; Flyaway Home; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; anything with Jackie Chan or Fred Astaire or the Marx Brothers in it; and any number of somewhat obscure indie flicks have been huge hits at our house.

Our rules are somewhat different from most households. We let our kids watch anything they want as long as we watch it together. No lasting damage, and the kids grew up to have broad tastes and are fun to talk to about movies.

Thanks for the warning... :)  I don't know about Madagascar 2...(well I didn't see the first), but I would love to see Ratatouille and the new Bond film!   Daniel Craig and his uglysexy...

It isn't for everyone...there isn't a ton of dialog and non-stop action.  It's a gem for independent film lovers who don't expect blockbuster production for every movie.

I saw this on stage a while back.. bloody hilarious and really touching.

I would be even more impressed with actors performing it live....  The writer actually made a prequel and a sequel, but I might skip those....seems unnecessary to know what happened before or after.

I saw a sweet Norwegian film last night that I really enjoyed..  One of those that makes you laugh.  The characters are very quirky, but you really adore them. 
It's called ELLING   If you can get a hold of it, I highly recommend.   {#Mrgreen}   http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0279064/

Hunger

The last six weeks of the life of the Irish republican hunger striker Bobby Sands, This is a must see movie, just out in the
cinemas here in the UK. Extremely accurate account of that time. I can't recommend this movie highly enough

Michael fassbender as Sands is the best performance I've seen since David Thewlis in Mike leigh's Naked, My favourite
ever performance from an actor.

Just saw another fabulous Norwegian/Swedish film called 'Kitchen Stories'.. Highly recommended if you can find it. It is one of the most unique plots I have seen in a long time.
A bit absurd and touching.

Here is the trailer for ELLING that I mentioned a few posts ago..

Just caught it. Darker than I expected - but a pretty good film I thought. Wouldn't make my top 20 - but plausible (well it would be!) & some fine performances.
The only jarring element was Angelina Jolie's lips - my God they look awful!! 

 

It's a true story.
