I was out at a store about a month ago and purchased this movie as I thought that the kids would like it. I am sorry to say that it was a disappointment all around. It didn't keep the kids engaged.. B did laugh a couple of times when the beast wiggled around when it was smaller but the story itself was not all that engaging. It was one of those you wish you would have borrowed from the library for free.
Over the past couple of months the kids have had an itching for some cartoons, so Jennifer picked up a deal at Wal-Mart which was some of the good ole cartoons of yesteryear. So for the last few movie nights and sometimes in-between we and they have been watching shows like Spin and Marty, Popeye (the black and white version), the three stooges, and Casper the friendly ghost. Let me just say that the kids favorite has to be the three stooges.. B just laughs and laughs at those...
This week, our for our family night festivities, we sat down with Taco Salad and watch the classic Old Yeller. If by some slim chance you have never seen Old Yeller, it's about a boy's love for his dog.

First let me say this is NOT a film for children..
“Set in the exotic country of South Africa, Duma tells the powerful adventure tale of an unbreakable bond of friendship between a cheetah named Duma and a courageous young boy named Xan. Xan faces the true test of love when he must cross the wilds of Southern Africa to return his best friend to his rightful home.” (http://dumamovie.warnerbros.com/)
Facing the Giants is the second full-feature motion picture written, produced and directed by Sherwood Productions (a ministry at Sherwood Baptist Church in Georgia).
This movie, written, produced and directed by Sherwood Productions (a ministry at Sherwood Baptist Church in Georgia) was their first attempt at movie making. With a budget of just $20,000, they have developed a film that, although a bit rough at the edges at times (the entire cast are volunteers from the church), will bless everyone who takes the time to watch it.
In this extremely funning 2007 follow-up to Bruce Almighty, Steve Carell (The Office) plays a vain junior congressman named Evan Baxter. Evan’s motto throughout the movie is that he wishes to "change the world" which is heard by none other than God (Morgan Freeman). When God appears with the perplexing request to build an ark, Evan is sure he is losing it. But soon mysterious deliveries of wood and tools are being dropped on his doorstep, animals of every shape and size are flocking to him two by two, and his self-absorbed life goes from overnight success to almighty mess!
Thursday Night Movies
Thursday nights are family movie nights at the Wagar Family Farm, which means that the whole family cozies up in our living room around the 20" computer monitor to watch a movie and enjoy dinner together. This blog will provide you with the reviews of the movies we've watched and whether or not we would recommend them to you.
