MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: Is “The Martian” OK For My Kids?

The Martian stars Matt Damon as an astronaut who, through a series of unfortunate events, is left stranded on Mars. He has a limited amount of resources so he must use his wits and vast knowledge of science to survive. It doesn’t really sound like the makings of a best-selling book, much less a blockbuster movie, but that’s exactly what The Martian has become. It will also most likely be a contender once Oscar season kicks in and is already on the everyone’s short-list of Must See Movies. Even I gave it an A+ and called it an “instant classic,” but here’s the next question: Is The Martian okay for my kids? It IS rated PG-13 after all, so what will my children be shown while watching it, other than a man’s incredible struggle to survive?

I actually had this conversation with my daughters (ages 8 & 11) today because they are both DYING to see The Martian. There are 2 things working against parents like me though, who want to share this movie with their kids: The length and the language. Continue reading →

PODCAST: Boozy Movies Reviews “The Martian”

It’s been AGES since Boozy Movies got together for a movie and booze but we FINALLY did for The Martian. I have a few disclaimers though, before you listen to the podcast:
1) I say, about midway through the review, “That’s how smart guys are.” I meant to say “That’s how smart ASTRONAUTS are.” No, I don’t think that all men are smart enough to stay alive on Mars. Also,
2) Rebekah laughs about the movie He Named Me Malala at the end of the review but she DIDN’T KNOW WHAT IT WAS ABOUT. I told her after we stopped recording and she said, “Now I feel like a dick.” She isn’t. She’s actually really nice but I’m going to make her see He Named Me Malala with me anyway. Here’s our review and if you hear anything else in there that offends you, it was probably intended. ENJOY!

MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: “Fantastic Four” Is The Anti-“Avengers”

Take the Avengers movies and remove everything you liked about them. Take out the witty banter, the intriguing backstories, and the great special effects. Also, suck out as much charisma and sex-appeal as possible from the sexy and charismatic actors. Then insert awkward silences, angry stares and copious plot holes. Voila! You have Fantastic Four!
