Beautiful Creatures not so much I mean Lena will either be good or evil on her 16th birthday and can make a dinning room table spin. Please any woman with a attitude can do that on any good day without magic. Five out of five starts I give it a big fat zero. Not worth a dollar so don't waste your time just my opinion.
Movie 5: Hansel and Gretel
If you remember the story line it has been told to you many time as a child. The story was meant to keep kids away from strangers and out of the woods. An old folk tale as you will just like that with a little darker twist. However I don't think it's a kids movie.I liked it a lot I still think if someone makes a movie Justice League Jeremy Renner should play green arrow.
Movie: 6 Snitch with Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock is an awesome movie but you have to be willing to sit through it. A man tries to save his son from staying in jail in return he has to bust the Mexican Drug Cartel. Not an easy task but if anyone is up for a challenge it's the ROCK! It's a sad/happy intense movie to see the lengths a parent a father would take to save his son. I would do it in a heartbeat if I had to. I think most parents would do just about anything and beyond to save their children. The Rocks get beat up. I know I was shocked myself. It deals with two families his and the life he had before with another woman. Putting his wife and daughter in harms way to help the police and his son. This is a must see movie again not a kids movie. I loved it!
Movie 7: Escape from Planet Earth
This is a cute kids movie that tells a story of a family mission. It's a kids movie all the way around. My boys loved it so five out of five stars. I caught bits and pieces of it running around trying to clean and sleep since Christopher has been waking up in the middle of the night with a fever since Wednesday. Popsicles, gatorades, and water has been of our best friends besides the bubbles baths taken at 3 am. We should both be a fish by now since Christopher's likes to pull the cat in the tub and I have to fish her out. Would of advice a cat with bubbles on is not a good look when she looks likes she is going to attack me. Thank God she didn't no people were harm in drying her off.
Movie 8: Broken City
Another bad bad and very bad movie that should have not been made. It was a total waste of money for sure. If you know politics there is no need to watch. I was upset that Mark Wahlberg played in a movie like this. He can do better much better like "Shooter." Which this movie is nothing like it. A city cop gets dumped on because he was just the right person to take the fall for some low life loser with power. I'm glad I didn't go to the theater for this one!
Movie 9: Promised Land
Yet, again another sad movie with a story of a big company buying land from a small town to build on. Yes, It will bring jobs but at what cost? This movie is just an updated version of Julia Roberts movie "Erin Brockovich" just Promised Land was a Promised Not. Not worth a dollar as least Julia knows how to put people in their place. Like in this clip http://youtu.be/BGX4nMrnxg0
I would have let the lady drink the water before I told her where it came from. People like that need an eye opener sometime. Let's be Honest we all know someone like that.
I have to say I love this movie instead.
Movie 10: Spiders
Last movie for today as you can see we have been on a movie thing for a while. Not much to do when children are sick and want to be held 24/7. I needed the break anyways who doesn't. A dumb movie that makes you think what someone could do with alien spiders. I just hope it doesn't come to that. Just not with spiders in this movie it sounds like Godzilla with eight legs. No joke Godzilla for real walking down the street. My boys liked the movie again not me. They like bugs not me. I mean it's the hubby's job to kill and create a murder scene when the pre-historic spiders here in Florida come out. Yet, It always seems like they come out when I'm home alone. I'll be screaming as I try to kill it. Kind of reminds me when Justin was one there was a mouse that got in my Mom's house. My sister was trying to kill it with a broom as it ran back and fourth behind the TV like it was playing a game. My ass was on a chair yelling out where it was at then she would hit it like the game at Chuck E Cheese. (Laughing) Some of the best times I swear! This was a bad movie!
Christopher has been up and down with a fever all week so we made it a movie week. Red Box must love us but we don't love all the movies. The Great and Powerful OZ had a great story line kept to the movie I grew up with The Wizard of OZ.
I have only one complaint no Dorothy and too long. I guess that would be two. However if you have kids it's worth watching. It's a cute movie that is funny. I rented the old version to compare which made for a great conversation that lasted the rest of the evening with Justin. He is the master of questions and idea's of how the movie could have been better.
Movie 2: Venom
Okay this movie was dumb there is no other way to put it. Our boys like snakes I don't know why but they do. Bad story line and bad acting not worth a dollar.
Movie 3: Side Effects
It was date night my hubby and I rented this movie one it has my second hubby in it Mr. Channing Tatum. He is a hottie! It's a great story line of being addicted to drugs. The ups and downs it explains a story so you have to pay attention to it. If you have to pee pause it or you will be lost. It's not what you think from the previews. All the actors are awesome in this. I just wonder if it was hard for Catherine Zeta Jones to play her part since she is bipolar in real life. I heard she was in treatment not to long ago. Without giving it away it's a must watch movie. I don't I have ever seen Rooney Marie who plays the wife/sick one in the movie in anything else. I have to say she plays a great sick person! Makes you think that's for sure.
Looks like I just ran out of time Justin has a basketball game today. Wish him luck he won last week 32 to 24. It's not the point he won but he had fun playing.
Update: Justin's team won 33 to 28 they kicked butt. All the kids did the main part all had fun and pictures today.

To get back to Tango & Cash Sly and Russell are awesome in this film. I seen this when I was little I used to be in love with Mr. Stallone. Too funny thinking about it now but I guess it was a insight to what kind of man I would marry. My hubby is somewhat like him. Armani in a Suit! When I meet him that's all he wore but then I seen the handyman side of him which is hot! These are just a few old time favorites of mind what are some of yours?

He was quiet in the car on the way to the YMCA. He was sleeping that's why no complaints here gave me a rest. He loves to go play with the kids in the kids zone it's like a daycare while I workout. I ran for 30 minutes burned 350 calories then I worked my legs and back. I was exhausted by the end. I love this YMCA Justin can come workout with me. It's nice to spend time just the two of us. I took a brake from working my thighs to take a picture of him on the bike which he burned 13 calories. He was really excited showing me his muscles. I think we will continue this just like our Coffee Day Friday which is where we drink coffee but his is decaffeinated.

My hubby and I go on these movies kicks for a month or so Flight was one of them. Very good character development, great directing, great story. I can't urge enough that this is not a children's movie at all with the movie starting off with full frontal nudity as a woman walks around getting dress.There is a great story line of a person who not only has a problem but knows he drinks because he wants to. He doesn't blame anyone but his self for drinking which I think is the first step to getting help. I know alcoholic's very well and I can empathize with Whip Whithaker struggles.He has lows and his highs - the euphoria of the Cocaine high - thinking he is invincible.This is how people destroy themselves with every one around them. However, people can change. I have seen it first hand. It's a daily stuggle not to drink or take drugs. It is a personal decision and it can be done. If you want something done you have to be the one who stops yourself no one else can take the bottle from you. If you know an alcoholic you know what I mean. I love the ending of the story. I also love the fact that now the airlines drug test. You will to after watching this incredible movie. Another must see.I laugh and cried on the edge of my seat watching you will to!If you are dealing with some of these same problems just remember there is HOPE!

Former collegiate wrestler Scott Voss is a 42-year-old apathetic biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher, Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy - most of all the school nurse, Bella - but in his quest, Scott gains something he never expected as he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school
This movie is a Action/Adventure, Comedy runs about 1 hour 45 minutes. This movie really gives you the inside story of the school systems and how it works. It takes a special person to be a teacher in any grade level. I found this movie to be extremely funny and inspiring. Without giving too much away it's a must see for sure. It's a family movie I watched with my nine year old yes it has some MMA fighting in it but the meaning is much more. I wish more teachers were in this flied for the kids. You may have gone through school to teach but please note not all kids learn the same way. Be willing to try something outside the book to keep your students involve. My son had a horrible kindergarten teacher who didn't have kids yet thought all kids were the same she didn't make it pass that year as a teacher. All it takes is a second of your time to watch and you will see a future in children. It takes time. To all the teachers who take the time I thank you very much. Keep up the great job.

For the first time in a long time I'm speechless. Yes, I like the movie that has twist and turns. If you are a mother just a parent alone the thought of your child being taken away from you brings a ton of emotions bolting though your body.Jessica Biel doesn't say much in the flim but seals the deal with her acting. I don't want to give to much away it's a must see. This movie makes you think. It has some bloody screens not advise for anyone under 15. It is rated R for a good reason. As you watch keep these questions in mind. How many are there? Is it better? Could you be one and not know it? Let me know what you think after you view it. My mind is still going wild with the questions above.

You know when you are a parent when even on a date at ten o'clock it's time for bed. We could hardly keep our eyes open at the end. It was very nice it gave us a chance to be adults for one night. Once we made it home when sat in the car taking about stuff not necessary the kids or what we had to do. We had a nice conversation about us. Sometimes Steve gets a little deep when he talks. One of the reasons I feel in love with him. I asked Steve what made him chose me over someone else.
"You seen me for who I am not who I was!" He made me smile I love talking to him. With everything the boys have to do and work we really haven't had a chance lately to sit down and chat. I guess we needed this. Being married takes work for some for others it's like breathing. No work is needed unless I have to sit in a ice cold rink to watch Justin and Steve play hockey. That is hard to do sometimes.

To get back to movies I seen The Black Swan It made me look at being crazy in a whole new light. I'm not crazy no matter what people say. (Laughing) However Natalie takes on this role very well. Steve and I are about to watch 127 hours with Franco. I'm not sure about this movie. I can't seem to stomach anything gross since I had Christopher. Franco is on my all time favorite soap general hospital where he plays a bizarre bad guy.
So we will see what happens if we watch it.

It will bring you joy in knowing that Hope is all you really need in life. My son told me that he will never give up on his family. I love the fact that he will never give up. It's from all that good parenting skills Steve and I have. We have raised a wonderful little boy together so far. There are many more years to come. Justin will be able to swim with dolphins very soon in the coming months. I can't wait to watch his face light up. I love watching movies with him but he is a talker. Mom watch this or the part where winter might not make it. He was really upset telling the people in the movie they can't do that. Then asking me "Can they do that mom and why would they?"
This is a all around family movie to see together. I'm not a big fan of watching movies in 3D. I hate the glasses they give you. Next time I'm bringing a bottle of water with me instead of paying $3.50 for a $1.00 bottle of water. Insane I will add not that I care but prices lately are getting out of hand. It's inspiring to see how so little can make a little boy happy. I know many children only have one parent due to many circumstances. I will applauded the aunts,cousins and family friends who stand up to help out. Children need to know they are loved.

What a classic movie from my childhood. I took Justin to the movies this past weekend while my hubby stayed home with the baby. He won't sit for long. I love how they released this movie in theaters. I hope they do it for more Disney movies. I don't mind paying ten dollars a ticket to take my son to see a movie from my childhood. It was packed from front to back. Thanks to my little sis I know this movie by heart. I can't believe I never caught what Timon said until now. Wow, the stuff they put in kids movies. I guess it's not bad considering what spongebob does which I'm happy to say Justin has been spongebob free for a week.
This is one of my favorites parts in the movie. Justins loves it too. We joked about it on the way home. I even laugh harder when he tried to tell his daddy about the part he liked. It worked out that my hubby knew what he was talking about. Jay liked to watch this when he was little. It was a flip between this and nemo. Another all time favorite we seen for the first time as a family. The only part that I hate in this movie is where Mufasa dies. I cry every time Justin gave me a big hug in the theater after it happen. I guess it's Disney way of showing children death because in every movie someone dies. I love how this movie shows a father and son relationship a healthy one at that. If you haven't seen this movie you should go see it. Justin has been bugging me to take him to see that new movie Dolphin Tale. He is the biggest animal lover I know. He wants to go see some dolphins and swim with them. I think his daddy and I might be able to make that happen sooner then what we thought with some big decisions coming up. I just hope we are around for the holidays. Justin will love it. I can't wait to take him to this movie tonight.
