When to IGNORE Film Critics (Written by a Film Critic)

The Top 5 Movies to See Over SPRING BREAK

Those of us with kids are about to spend a whole week with them at home and you know how that goes. They spend extended periods of time on their chosen devices until parental-guilt kicks in and you HAVE to take them somewhere. This is a great time to catch up on the movies you’ve missed and fortunately, there’s some fun stuff currently in theaters. I put together a list of the Julie Says So Top 5 Movies to See Over Spring Break, but these are primarily for kids 13 and under. If you have older kids (or just kids who like movies for older kids) I would add Logan and especially Get Out to the list.
