It’s half term so hooray for movies for some very welcome
downtime for the kids AND definitely me! Today they have been to the skate park then for a long scoot around
followed by a visit to a shop for some sugary sustenance for later and a trip to the library to pick out some books together, then more
scooting/bike riding back home again.
am scheduling movie screenings every day as a way to chill out the pair of
them, whether at home or in the cinema.
After a full day in each other’s companies they get a bit tetchy to say
the least! So a good film and some
sweets help take the edge off for everyone.
loves his technology though so he would like a 4K (or Ultra HD) TV as
apparently they deliver four times as much detail compared to what we have at
the moment, so your talking better clarity when your viewing. I do not notice this kind of stuff normally
but hubbie and the other men folk in the family most certainly do (including my
dad and brother), so the boys will probably join daddy soon grumbling for a better TV!
4K TV has captured hubbies attention and I did have a little gander
at their site I must admit using their see the difference tool I could make
out a significant advantage going for 4K.
Now the boys are getting into movies in a big way we might as well make
the most of our time together with better picture quality.
Here are a few film recommendations
for you that we have enjoyed lately.
The Good Dinosaur – a bit sad in
places, poor Arlo does not have the best time of it but it shows with a bit of
courage and a good friend you can do pretty much anything!
– bit heavy on the swearing hence its 12 rating but other than that its
very watchable, eldest loves computer game so the theme was perfect for
him. If your in your thirties it’s one of those films that makes
you feel a little nostalgic for the games you played as a child!
Goosebumps – only
just out in the cinema and worth a watch, it’s a PG but the zombies do look
pretty nasty and the puppet looks like he means business too. But all ends well (or almost!) and some
parts are very funny so even my eldest who generally likes films with considerably
less monsters (or just friendly ones!) enjoyed it.
Good luck surviving
half term! More movie suggestions are very welcome please add them in the comments below!
