What to see at the movies

    Now that I live in country Queensland, I haven't been able to make it to the Big Smoke for the usual holiday movie previews. 

    Usually, the kids and I like to watch the school holiday movies, so you don't have to pay to sit through the crap ones.

    But it's not always possible to make the three-hour trek to the city for the previews, though I'm working on having a small team of guest bloggers to do the work for me when I can't be there. 

    In the meantime, I threw this school holiday's movie reviews open to my peeps on twitter and Facebook.

    Here's what they had to say:

    Man of Steel
    Twitter's McClaaaaaaane! ‏@RealJackMcClane had this report:*
    'I was so disappointed with Man Of Steel. Had been waiting so long for it and other than a few scenes, it was a bit meh.'
    But he added:
    'Russell Crowe was awesome and the opening scenes were terrific!'

    Despicable Me 2

    Nadine Dewberry: I went to see Despicable Me with seven kids aged from 3 to 9, (3 girls, 4 boys). They all loved it. The three-year-old sat still the whole time, no one got scared, and there were plenty of laughs, both out loud and inside from the adults. Oh, and the kids lol.
    Always have to stay around for the credits to see even more funny bits.
    Great story line with a few surprises. The nosy neighbour is a tad funny hehehe. 
    Our popcorn was burnt; that was the only complaint from anyone. People were leaving the cinema all abuzz, talking and laughing about their fave parts, recommend it to everyone.

    Bec Waterhouse:  My kids LOVED Despicable Me 2. Abi sat still and quiet for the entire movie and danced during the credits.
    Viv Temple:  Saw Despicable Me with my 7 and 8 year-olds. Both kids loved it - a little scary towards the end but not bad at all. Plenty of polysemic discourse so enjoyable for the grown ups as well. Would definitely recommend it!

    Monsters University

    Michelle M Burke: We watched Monsters University today and loved it!! Very very clever, funny and laugh out loud moments!

    Lizette Phillips and Mark L. Fendrick also gave Monsters University the thumbs up.

    Isn't it great that none were universally hated? Thanks to my guest reviewers for their help. 

    Apologies for the freaky font on this blog. With the kids away on a wonderful adventure with their Dad, I have an unusual helper …
