Since it is still Christmas break, & you probably need to get out of the house. I thought I would give you my 2 cents about the movies in theaters for kids right now. 

Movies are what we do for fun in my family.  If there is a new movie out, I bet we've seen it.  Since this is a blog for mumsies, I thought I would share about the family movies available to you.  

I'll start with personal favorite. Frozen was really great. My whole family loved it & my son didn't think it was too girly! Although,  I thought there was just the right mixture of femininity & masculinity. 

Here is a lite synopsis of the film from

"Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter."

I'll admit that I thought it looked incredibly corny before I saw it. (That snowman looked ridiculous!) But I left pleasantly surprised. It was all about familial love, self acceptance & hope. An inspiring story that would be appropriate for the whole family. 

My grade: A

The next on our list is Walking With Dinosaurs. This is how gives for their synopsis of the film.  "For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. "Walking with Dinosaurs" is the ultimate immersive experience, utilizing state of the art 3D to put audiences in the middle of a thrilling and epic prehistoric world, where an underdog dino triumphs to become a hero for the ages." 

This movie had incredible, well made animation. But that was about all I liked.  The story starts out in modern day Alaska. An uncle, along with his niece &nephew,  are on their way to a dig site the uncle had been working on.  On the way there, the nephew finds a dinosaur tooth in the uncle's truck.  As they arrive,  the nephew stays behind & talks to a Crow that had landed near him.  That same crow turns into a prehistoric bird of some sort &starts to narrate an unrelated story.  Somehow, it all fits together in the end,  but I felt lost most of the movie.  So I can only guess child viewers would be the same! This film had great potential, but I left a little confused! 

My grade: C-
Whatever you're doing this holiday break, I hope you are having a blast! Enjoy it while it lasts mumsies!
