I have finally got the chance to stock up on new releases on a Tuesday for my movie review post. We felt like a family on an adventure to another world today. It’s been pouring down rain ALL day long here. Del is finally OFF from everything. So, we’ve been watching movies with him and then the kids and I have been watching our own movies.
We watched A Good Day to Die Hard movie together as a family. It was a good movie to put an end to the Die Hard series. There was definitely A LOT of action and violence. That’s pretty much all the movie was! They did throw in a small bit of story line concerning a father-son’s relationship. It kept me interested just because of that little bit of family drama.
Our kids are used to watching these types of movies and scenes. However, if your kids have not been exposed to this type of movie. This is definitely not the one to show them! I was even having to turn my head quite a bit through some of these scenes.
Then the kids and I watched Identity Thief together. It was a very funny movie to say the least. I was a bit concerned with the way the movie started out with my kids watching it. However, with a bit of fast forwarding it wasn’t to terrible having them watch it. Since I’m a huge fan of Melissa McCarthy, the kids have to get use to seeing her movies.
There was an unexpected twist to this movie that actually made me quite happy. Many times there are people who do bad things because they weren’t loved or made to feel appreciated when they were growing up. Many people don’t realize the impact a parent has on their kids lives. This movie manages to throw that concept in a very funny movie.
We also watched the first movie on the Saddle Up triple play DVD that came out today on Redbox. This DVD is filled with three movies: Healed by Grace, Natalie’s Rose, and Second Chances that are very religious based. Healed By Grace is the first movie on the DVD. It is a remarkable movie about how a horse helped a young woman find a new hobby to keep herself happy. Plus there were many other people who were affected by this relationship as well.
As you know, I personally love these types of movies. These movies are a perfect combination of religion and horses stories. We all know those are two topics I enjoy reading, watching, and writing about. I look forward to watching the other two movies on this DVD when I get the chance.
This is just a small run down of the movies we’ve watched today. We’re still working our way through some more movies. If there are anymore worth mentioning, I’ll write-up another post about it.
By the way, my post from yesterday got scratched due to a hosting switching confusion. However, just so you know I’m part of the Ultimate Challenge July 2013. I look forward to taking part and sharing posts with you that are more along my normal types of posts. I want to get this blog back to where it was when I started out, and also give you added benefits.
Thank you for coming by today.
What movies do you recommend I watch?
