As it is very hot outside, I’m thinking it’s a good time to take the kids to a matinee but which one to spend your hard-earned money on?
“Despicable me” got a B plus in the AJC but the AP writer didn’t like it very much. One of my friends reported on Facebook that her kids did like it so I think it’s an option. But do we really need to pay for the 3-D?
Now Walsh would promise to clean the bathroom for a year if I took him to see “The Last Airbender” but I think from the ads it seems too violent. I was surprised to find out it’s only rated PG. They’ve been watching “The Last Airbender” cartoon series (which is actually called “Avatar”) on Netflix but it’s pretty tough to watch with them. So I’m looking for some motherly insight on the violence and tolerability of the subject matter.
And finally there’s “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.” The Boston Herald gave it a B and calls it the American Harry Potter. The review is meaner than the grade would indicate.
So tell me if you’ve seen any of these movies and are they worth my money to go and see them. What’s the best bet for a hot summer afternoon?
On a side note, I just want to mention that the “Grease” Sing Along movie is playing tonight at 7 and 9:35 p.m. at the Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 16. I think it would be tremendous fun! I went to an unofficial “Grease” sing along when we lived in New York City and I had the best time!
