Batman The Dark Night Rises Movie Review

Batman The Dark Knight Rises is a great movie and follows up on the two films in this now finished Batman trilogy very well. The movie focuses a lot on Bruce Wayne instead of Batman (Christian Bale). The Dark Knight Rises is appropriate for its pg-13 rating. There’s not a lot of cussing, and the violence is on par with the other movies in this trilogy. Our friends at Colorado Mom talk about if The Dark Night Rises is appropriate for {Read More}

Ice Age: Continental Drift – Escape the Summer Heat and Chill Out

Ice Age Continental Drift Movie Review

My kids are fans of the Ice Age series. We own all three previous movies, with Dawn of the Dinosaurs being our hands down favorite. Sure there are dinosaurs chasing mammals during the Ice Age, but the writing and humor are worth looking past paleontology. Ice Age: Continental Drift starts with Scrat, the saber-toothed squirrel who is forever chasing an acorn, looking for a place to hide his treasured nut. It escapes, and he chases it to the center of {Read More}

Katy Perry Part of Me 3D Movie Poster

I took my 10-year-old daughter to see Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D this week. The movie opens today, July 5th, across the country. Both of my daughters are big Katy Perry fans and were excited to see the movie. I wasn’t sure if my 7-year-old would be mature enough for the content. Knowing Katy’s sex kitten persona, I was also concerned about my 10-year-old. Part of Me received a PG rating, making it only the second MTV Films movie to {Read More}

Helping Teens Stay Safe Behind the Wheel

toyota teen safety program

How did you feel the first time you put the key in the ignition? Remember the thrill and the feeling of invincibility you had the first time you drove? Unfortunately, these feelings may overshadow a realistic perception of what could happen while driving. Teen drivers are not always prepared, and they may be dealing with more distractions than you dealt with when you were learning to drive. Also, they may not be fully aware of how cars function. This lack {Read More}
