When Hollywood Gets it Right

Movie Goers

Don’t you love it when there are movies worth going to see at your local theaters that your entire family can watch? There were a few of them lately that we enjoyed enough to add to our DVD collection… and there are a few we are anxiously awaiting. Here’s a quick snapshot and blurb about each […]

Begin Again – movie review

Begin Again - music and integrity will always matter

As my kids have gotten older, we have really been to a lot more movies than we used to go see. I enjoy discussing movies after we see them and have come to a place with my mature teens (17 and 15) that we can discuss themes in movies that are adult in nature. My […]
