Movies with M&D

Published by cck at 9:56 PM

This afternoon M&D took me to the movies. I love going to the movies with my parents. They firmly believe in the large popcorn theory. No butter - I mean, we (they) have limits - but there's usually candy involved.
So, this afternoon we left GM and headed to Hollywood 20. The problem was, however, when I hopped out of the car to look at movie times, I had no idea what movie was what. I hadn't seen any of the coming attractions on TV. Titles meant nothing. I did see the Chronicles of Narnia. Dad had been lobbying for it - Mom and I kindly followed. We contemplated letting him go to the movie alone and us catching The Pink Panther, but as a family we took our seats in the already darkened theater.

It was fabulous. Seriously - greatest movie I've seen in quite a while. I usually despise movies with animal characters - but Mr. & Mrs. Beaver almost stole the show. The scenery was magical. And, of course, the story is more than moving. I loved it!

The Chronicles was a good movie, it took me back to library 'class' in the 6th grade. They did a good job integrating the animation with the action, especially with the wolves. Sorry about the butter.

Have to agree... Chronicles was great viewing, especially for chidlhood fans of the books!

You know, I thought that was a pretty good post untill I read the part about 1. no butter. You know pops always gets a little butter on the return trip. I mean its our little gift to the man. Sure, he as to get up and leave part of the cinematic adventure right at the beginning of the movie to refill the popcorn, but we all know that he does this feat so he can put just a little bit of the buttery goodness on there. 2. You said the whole family. I mean, I understand I am not in the same zip code as yall anymore, but atleat give a little shout out to the wayward MSS every once in a while. Thats about all I have to say on that. Oh yeah, you should look up SNL's Chronicles on Narnia spoof. Its an excellent mix. So there that is....
