I am stopping in today to let everybody know about a movie club I found. It looks great! I have just joined it last night and I haven't gotten my DVDs yet but I am excited.
Have you ever gone to the movie rental store or website and just couldn't find anything that the whole family could watch? We have that problem. Either the older kids can watch it and the younger ones can't or the younger ones can watch it and the older ones just aren't interested. Or it's suppose to be family night and mom and dad just aren't interested in the movie that was picked out. On the same lines, it's really hard to find a friendly movie. Even the rated G movies and PG movies that are billed as Family Friendly have inuendo that "appeals" to the adult audience. What ever happened to good movies that the entire family can watch without having to worry if the kids caught on to the inuendo or even movies that don't go against morals?
I see alot of promise in the Family Values Cinema, the first two movies I will be getting are Where the Red Fern Grows and Pit Pony. Yes, these movies are older, but they have stood the test of time. The first two movies are sent to you for free, all you have to do is pay $1.95 shipping. You can cancel at anytime and if you continue the subscription it's $19.95 plus shipping a month. Every order you get two movies that you keep along with a family guide to help with family discussions.
Aside from the family movies, I am excited about the family guides. I have two children that have a hard time with reading comprehension and I see the guides as a way to open that door. Get them to talk about the movies and what they think about it, they should be more open to discussing books and understanding them too.
I encourage you to try Family Values Cinema, you can cancel it after the first month or any time thereafter. Try it and see how it suits your family!
