We don’t really hit the theatres too often around here but the trend has been to catch a few flicks here and there during the summer. I don’t think we intentionally choose to go during the summer but I guess we just have more time and more kid movies are out. Although I’ll be the first to admit that I’m content on waiting till movies hits Netflix.
We must not have done too many movies last summer unless I forgot to blog about it. But definitely summer 2008, we hit the theatre a few times with the kids. Well summer 2010 has hit the Ormeo household faster than we can keep up with. This summer we’ve already hit up 8 movies! Now that’s a record around here, that’s probably more movies in the last 2 months than we’ve ever watched in a year (at the theatre I mean)!
Marmaduke kicked it off for us even though it was just Ethan, Lizzie and I (Enzo was having a moment so Toots stayed home with him. Trust me, another post for another day…better yet, that probably deserves it’s own blog!)
Surprisingly, Shrek wasn’t too crude! Don’t get me wrong, Shrek movies are funny but they are more adult humor than what I’d like for my kids to watch. So when we hit up the theatre to watch it, I was cringing in my sit before the movie started. Yes, the story is more for adults then it is for kids, but I was really surprised and pleased that it was clean! (We’re very picky about what we allow the kids to watch…oh well!)
The kids loved Karate Kid! Although I think Enzo just liked it because it’s a kid fighting. It was cute but c’mon the love story between 12 year olds??? PUHHHLEEEEEEZZZZZEEEEEE!
Last Airbender was reserved for Ethan’s Dad Date…besides I think it may be a little much for the Little Ormeo’s. Actually, I’m just glad I didn’t have to sit through it! =D
Despicable Me was soooooooo FFFFFLLLLLLUUUUUUUUUUFFFFFFFYYYY!!! Oh it was funny! I was a bit surprised though that Toy Story 3 had a few dark moments. Enzo wasn’t too thrilled with Chuckles, Latso, and Big Baby. One night I said one of Lizzie’s dolls looked like Big Baby. His reply was “MOM! Oh great now I’m gonna have to have nightmares!” haha but who can blame him, Chuckles scares me too!
Can you believe we even got to watch a couple of movies sans kids??? Grown Ups was funny. I’m usually not a Adam Sandler fan because he tends to be a bit much, but wow he was so toned down in this movie. Ethan is still a bit bummed that we watched Eclipse without him. haha Sorry Ethan, we had to sneak in another date night without you kids, besides you were at Camp Dalisay!
I wonder if we’ll hit up anymore movies before the summer is over? hmmm we shall see!
