Sick of Movies? Get Plugged In!



I don’t know about you but I am so disappointed with the movies they have for kids these days or even adults.  I know I sound like an 80 year old complaining but it’s true.

I took Ashlyn to see her first movie (in a theater) last summer.  She was so excited!  We were going to see Happy Feet.  I thought, “Oh, it will be a cute little movie about penguins.”  I had no idea that the whole premise of the movie was about penguins mating.  Now, I am partly to blame because first of all I thought this movie was G but found out later it was PG.   Ashlyn spent half the time in my lap because the vicious seal and killer whale that freaked her out. 

I was talking to a friend of mine telling her about my frustrations and see told me to check out this Plugged In Online, a website that reviews movies.  It’s amazing! It tells you all you would want to know about the movie and so much more.  I won’t be taking my kids to a movie without checking this site out anymore.

    Another great website that I have always used is:

    http://www.kids-in-mind.com

    They rank the movies in 3 categories on a scale from 1-10:
    Sex/Nudity
    Violence & Gore
    Language
    The higher the number, the more of that stuff they have. They also describe all of the specific things that are in the movie if you want to read through it all. A very helpful resource!
