MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: “The Good Dinosaur”- Pixar Has Us Crying In Our Popcorn AGAIN

My daughters think they are EXPERTS when it comes to Kids’ Films. They see every Kid Flick that comes out and since I write about movies, I usually interview them afterwards. My girls also spend time (more than I’m willing to admit here) on TV channels that are devoted to kids, so they’ve seen all the Made-For-TV Kid Flicks as well. They have a broad point of reference and are quicker to voice their opinions about movies that I ever was at that age. That is why I listen closely to their reviews, because they usually mirror what other kids their ages will say.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Shaun the Sheep” on ME!

I’ve always been a fan of Aadmore Animations and their crude but surprisingly dear characters. That said, I was still stunned by the onslaught of GREAT reviews for their latest release, the Shaun the Sheep Movie. It was screened at SXSW this year and everyone walked out singing it’s praises. In fact, the last time I checked the Shaun the Sheep Movie was still getting 100% on “Rotten Tomatoes,” which means every Film Critic who has seen it LIKES it. That pretty much NEVER happens and guess who has FREE PASSES! Even better, we knew that you’d want to take the whole family (and maybe a cousin or a neighbor kid) so we’re giving away 4 passes a POP! Just click HERE to snag those then watch the trailer to see what it’s all about. See you there! I might even drag my husband to this one!
